Five Great New Podcasts
Welcome to the 105th edition of Find That Pod.
A warm welcome to all new subscribers this week. If you’re a long-time subscriber of the newsletter, you might notice something different about today’s edition. That’s the introduction of some advertisements.
For now I’m simply testing the ad formats, but I do plan on opening up the ad platform up to anyone interested in reaching 3000+ weekly podcast fans. I hope to have the ad platform launched sometime this week so stay tuned for that.
We’ve also got a Patreon supporter podcast featured this week! And speaking of Patreon…
Don’t forget you can support us on PATREON for as little as $3 / month.
Working Over Time
Not to be confused with “overtime”, this aptly named podcast features an exploration of the history of work and what it has mean to society at large over time and across cultures. It’s got some good story-telling elements and if you close your eyes while listening you just might feel like you’ve been transported to a time of yesteryear. Oh yeah, you might learn a thing or two as well. Highly recommend.

Depresh Mode with John Moe
I suspect that we’re on the cusp of a pretty massive mental health crisis. The likes of which we’ve never seen. Over a year of pandemic life, with mercifully some relief finally in sight, many people are not coping well. The mental anguish of the past year has and continues to take a toll on people everywhere. So perhaps this is as good a time as any to launch a mental health podcast. Host John Moe explores the world of depression and mental health with a variety of guests. It’s a brand new show but it’s got a lot of promise.

The Agile Within
I’m going to go ahead and assume that most of you won’t know what AGILE is. I mean, I know you know what the word means, but this podcast is about something a bit different. AGILE is a project management and software development framework that allows teams to work in a specific way.
Those of you that ARE familiar with AGILE and are either already using it in your work, or are curious about its many benefits would stand to listen to this terrific podcast by Scrum Master and Agile Coach Greg Miller. In each episode, Greg dives deep into how to BE Agile through behaviour modification and mindset shifts.

It’s been a long time since I’ve been so engrossed by a true crime podcast. In 1996 French film producer Sophie Toscan du Plantier is found dead near her holiday home. There is one suspect. But the authorities can’t quite pin it on him. And so the saga drags on, but as it does, the unfolding tragedy of this event begins to envelop many characters and soon the entire region of West Cork, Ireland. Don’t miss this one.

There’s plenty of proud dog parents out there. After all, in the U.S. alone, it’s estimated that there’s about 78 million dogs living as faithful human companions. So it’s really no wonder that there are more than few good podcast dedicated to our canine friends. This is definitely one of the better ones. Dog Edition is a show dedicted to news, in-depth reporting, analysis, features, and interviews, all about our furry friends.
