Find That Pod # 100

Five Great New Podcasts

Welcome to the 100th edition of Find That Pod.

Well, we did it. We made it to 100 weeks of podcast recommendations. That’s 500 podcasts I’ve now recommended. I hope you’ve found some gems amongst those recommendations.

Thank you to all of you early subscribers who have stuck with the newsletter for nearly 2 years and of-course, as always, welcome all new subscribers!

Today, I’m very excited and very nervous to announce that I’m launching the Find That Pod Patreon… read on below, if you want to hear me ask for your support.

A Matter of Degrees

Hosts Dr. Leah Stokes and Dr. Katherine Wilkinson tell the stories behind the powerful forces driving climate change and those fighting to stop it. This show is perfectly situated for those with an open mind that want to know how they can be a part of the solution to the greatest challenge humanity will likely face in the coming decades.

Conversations With Coleman

Coleman Hughes is a writer, philosopher, and expert at applied ethics and public policies. He’s one of the sharpest minds around with a reason and fact-focused approach to discussing public policy around issues such as race, policing, altruism, politics, and more. Will you agree with everything he thinks or says? Not likely. And neither do I. But this young man is thoughtful about many of today’s issues in a way that is seldom heard in public discourse. And that’s definitely worth listening to.

Rational Reminder

Pardon my selection bias on this one, but this podcast is mostly for Canadians. Especially those that need some investing advice. It’s a weekly show that touches on the topics of sensible investing and financial decision-making for Canadians. So go forth my fellow Canucks, go forth and multiply thy beautifully coloured Canadian cash.

Non-Technical

Take one San Francisco comedian. Add a dash of tech, media and business folks from the valley. Mix them up in a bowl of podcasting goodness, and the final product is this entertaining podcast that’s just getting started. I suspect there are big things ahead for this show given its strong start.

Huberman Lab

Neuroscience is a fascinating study of the human brain. It’s a delving into how our brain can control the rest of our body and the connection between a healthy mind and a healthy body. Dr. Andrew Huberman, a tenured professor of Neurobiology at the Stanford Scool of Medicine takes his knowledge and pours it into one of the more fascinating podcasts I’ve heard so far this year. Give it a shot.
