A Breath of Fresh Earth
This fantastic climate and environmental change podcast is a little bit different from other shows I’ve listened to on this topic. A Breath of Fresh Earth is more like your guide to all the good things happening in the battle against climate change. It’s a show that spotlights Climate Heroes fighting the good fight to ensure that the earth doesn’t become a ridiculous hellscape no-one wants to live on.
But more than that this show is also a great resource for people looking to get more active in the climate change battle, with recommendations on products to buy, who to follow on social media, and more. Looking to get involved in preventing an unlivable earth? This podcast is a terrific place to start.
Excuse Me, That’s Illegal
I don’t even know where to start with this podcast. It’s one of those gems that when you run across it, you honestly can’t believe you haven’t heard of it earlier. Yes, it’s a true-crime show, but not like any true crime show you’ve listened to before. Its format is equal parts baffling and equal parts genius.
Host Leroy Luna takes on what he calls “softcore” crimes. Smartly steering away from stories of murder and heartache, for which there are thousands of other podcasts for, Leroy has carved out a brilliant niche in covering things like petty theft, dumb criminals, bank robberies, and other insanely entertaining crimes that don’t necessarily involve bloody corpses.
The show even has a great Listener Confession segment in which fans of the show call in and confess their minor crimes. But what truly sets this show apart, aside from the format, is the host. He’s affable, funny, and has a cadence and style to his one-man show that makes him easy and enjoyable to listen to. This show is definitely staying in my permanent subscribe list .
Strange By Nature
The Friendship File
The premise of this podcast is simple. Do you ever wonder what friends say about each other when the other friend isn’t around? Each episode features two friends answering 17 questions about each other. Some friendships are clearly meant to be, while others, well, they quickly begin to unravel when there’s plenty of honesty being divulged. A pretty entertaining show.
Given the cover art of this show, you can probably guess what this podcast is all about. But it’s not just about climate change. It’s about the crazy-making policies that governments and societies have adopted around the world, that are frankly, roasting the earth and making everyone a bit dumber along the way. But don’t worry, it’s not all doom and gloom, this show happens to also be quite funny.
