Find That Pod # 9

Pods You Should Listen To

Welcome to the 9th edition of Find That Pod. As always, this week features 5 amazing new podcasts I think you should give a try. P.S. It’s Friday… get some rest this weekend, you’ll thank me later.

To the Best of our Knowledge

Sure it’s a nationally syndicated, Peabody award-winning public radio show, but I’ll pretend that I’m the one that discovered this gem because it’s just THAT good. Dicing into ideas that need exploring, this pod brings on all manner of people including novelists, scientists, engineers, journalists, filmakers, philosophers, artists and activists. Food for your brain is probably the best way to describe this ongoing show.

Retronauts

There’s no doubt that if you’re of a certain age, you kind of lament and pine for the days of old when video games were something more than blockbuster media juggernauts. They were made for the love of gaming, finely crafted with love and a certain innocence rarely found in any video game these days. That’s what I love about the Retronatus podcast, these are guys that simply LOVE classic video games and video game culture and with each pod, they either review games or discuss their love for the classic days of gaming.

Tides of History

If you’re a regular subscriber to this newsletter, you’ve probably surmised by now that I’m a bit of a sucker for all things History. That’s why I’m including this fabulous podcast from host Patrick Wyman who takes you through various historical events and how they’ve shaped our modern world. A must listen for history buffs.

Adapt

A brand new podcast from hosts Federico Viticci and Ryan Christoffel of MacStories.net fame, Adapt is a show all about the iPad lifestyle and how these two gentlemen use the iPad for all of their work needs. If you’re looking to explore how you can incorporate the iPad into more of your daily workflow, this is going to be one of the quintessential podcasts to listen to.

The Knowledge Project with Shane Parrish

This podcast was recently introduced to me by one of my closest friends and I’m now hooked. Consider The Knowledge Project a kind of master class for life. If you’re looking to improve how you think, how you live and be surprised by how simply changing your way of thinking or adjusting your mental models can impact your life, this is an incredible podcast worth listening to filled with, frankly some astonishing interviews of fascinating people.
