What Fresh Hell: Laughing in the Face of Motherhood
Laughing is the operative word when it comes to this awesome podcast for moms. But gentlemen, don’t be fooled, this isn’t JUST a podcast for moms. This genuinely funny show features two moms, Amy and Margaret who deal with the same hassles and questions that most parents do. They happen to have very different parenting styles and that makes for both an informative and entertaining show that airs three times a week.
Expect Q&A’s, expert interviews, and coverage of a wide variety of parenting topics for parents of kids across the age spectrum. Join these two ladies as they laugh in the face of motherhood!
The Lazarus Heist
Think you know the story of the Sony Pictures hack that came as retalition for the Seth Rogan and James Franco movie featuring the death of North Korean dictator King Jong-un? This amazing podcast takes you inside the intricate investigation of the hacking group that was responsible for it. But the story goes much deeper than commonly reported in the media. Make sure to check this one, it’s downright compelling.
Renegades: Born in the USA
Your Own Backyard
American college student Kristin Smart vanished in 1996. It made national headlines, and the true crime story behind it is fascinating. One outcome of Kristin’s disappearance was a California law that amended the way campus security services operate. Another solid true-crime podcast to be sure.
I’ll admit, this show is not for everyone. But if you’re into fiction podcasts that skew towards the mysterious, sci-fi, and thriller genre, you’ll love this. Plus, it features the melodic sounds of Bonobo who if you haven’t heard, you should. At the end of the day, this podcast, through its narrative asks the question: Can you feel loss for something you’ve never known?
