Pods You Should Listen To
Welcome to the 14th edition of Find That Pod. With both Canada Day and Independence Day now passed and now that we’ve all got our collective fireworks displays out of the way, let’s get to some new podcasts shall we? As always I hope you love this week’s choices.
Designers, researchers and entrepreneurs all take part in this podcast’s search for not only a deeper meaning and connection to work but also how to attain productivity gains through the simple act of slowing down. Host Jocelyn K. Glei explores all manner of topics related to the idea of modern productivity.
Believe it or not, Reddit is right-up there with some of the largest social networking sites in terms of active users, perhaps now even surpassing Twitter. And I know what you’re thinking, but in my opinion, there is far more good and interesting stuff to find on Reddit than the sometimes rather undesirable communities you may run into on there. Endless Thread is a collaboration between Reddit and Wbur that examines some of the most fascinating and entertaining threads in Reddit’s history and explores them in some-depth. If you’re a Redditor, you should definitely subscribe to this pod.
If you’re looking for a far less snobby take on cinema and movies, be they in theatres or streaming, then Cinemaholics might be your kind of kick. This podcast is an amalgamation of two hosts ideas and opinions that won’t set off any snob alarms in your head. Just two guys who clearly know what they’re talking about and have a real passion for movies.
War is no joking matter. Yet the hosts of this podcast, including one of my favourite podcasting personalities, John Roderick, manage to keep things relatively light and entertaining as they look at the history of warfare through some of cinema’s most famous takes on it. Come for the pedantic quibbles, stay for the mockery of the French (sorry French people).
Cars. Some people love them, some are ambivalent, and others think they’ve been sent by the devil. If you fall into the love ’em category, you should give this great podcast a try. Each week hosts Dan, Rebecca and Sam discuss various new cars they’ve been trying out and also touch on where the future of transportation is going.
