For the month of January, I’ve committed to posting every day, having accepted the 30-day challenge made by Sarah Peck
So, it’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these posts, but my podcast subscription list just gets longer and longer. I listen to them oldest to newest, and right now I’m only about a month behind. Yes – “only”. On the rare occasion when I’m listening to a podcast that was released in the same month that I’m listening to it? Amazing!
Here’s more of my favorites that you may or may not know about:
The Moth Podcast A collection of real life stories told live on stage, some funny, some poignant, some utterly indescribable. One of my very favorite stories is called Screaming Meemies — one of the hilarious examples. You never know what you’re going to get, but there’s hardly ever a dud among them.
This American Life A classic. If you haven’t yet heard of Ira Glass and This American Life, then you’ve been seriously out of the loop. Every episode is phenomenal, but Act One of this episode (Overboard (you can start around 2:15 of the playback)) is one of my favorites.
Undisclosed Have you followed Serial, the #1 podcast in the entire universe? Did it leave you unsatisfied and looking for more? Well, here is the more. Undisclosed is a podcast with three lawyers, one of whom is related to Adnan Syed, and they tear apart the case, leaving very few questions unanswered. It’s a good way to fill in the gaps that Serial left you with.
Death, Sex & Money Host Anna Sale is as wonderful an interviewer as Terry Gross — and that’s saying something. She covers the topics that we all think about, but rarely talk about and that makes for really interesting conversation. Take this recent episode: while most shows do not feature well-known people, this interview of Holland Taylor (I knew her best as the Mom on Two and a Half Men) was spectacular. In-depth and charming, I loved this from start to finish.
What are you listening to these days? Any recommendations to add to my list?
