Stuff You Should Listen To
Welcome to the 5th edition of Find That Pod. This week we’ve got some stellar new podcasts to recommend. Thanks to everyone who keeps recommending new pods, keep them coming and tell your friends, or send them this newsletter.
Super Awesome Science Show
Canadian scientist and author Jason Tetro hosts the Super Awesome Science Show, an award-winning podcast that explores, mainly, the science of the body and other natural phenomenon affecting you. Most episodes run about 30 minutes, so you won’t be overwhelmed. New episodes weekly.
The Flop House
The long-running Flop House podcast is a mostly every 2-weeks podcast that through the friendship of 3 co-hosts skewers some of the worst movies in recent history with hilarious effect. It helps that they know a thing or two about the art of cinema. If you love movies and need a good laugh, go through the Flop House archives.
You’re Wrong About
Writers Mike and Sarah tackle some of recent history’s most important cultural events with an incredibly natural and entertaining flow. Backed up with an obvious interest in getting the facts and history right, they explore cultural watersheds such as Afterschool Specials, The Jonestown Massacre, Columbine, The Obesity Epidemic, Stranger Danger and many more.
Where season one featured Oprah, season 2 of Making tells the early story of how Obama became Obama. With previously little heard interviews with the former President’s key advisors, mentors and rivals this podcast series focuses on how the city of Chicago played a major role in shaping his views and ultimately his political life.
Somewhere in the Skies
Look, I personally think most if not all paranormal crap is total bullshit. That said, there are some stories, and maybe they’re just that, simply too compelling and too intriguing to ignore outright. And while there are plenty of podcasts exploring some of these phenomena, the Somewhere in the Skies podcast with Ryan Sprague is one of the best.
