Five Great New Podcasts

Welcome to the 114th edition of Find That Pod.

This week, we’re going to keep it short, but as always, welcome new and old subscribers. Let’s get to the good stuff.

Space Trash: Lifestyle of the Rich and Uranus

Space Trash: Lifestyle of the Rich and Uranus

What happens when you get two smart, and funny comics together to talk all things celebrity, pop-culture, and politics news? You get a podcast with one of the better sub-headlines I’ve seen. Space Trash: Lifestyles of the Rich and Uranus is unique in that it can often turn even dark and depressing topics into something you can laugh at and through that laughter, learn to cope with the news in a healthier way. Awesome stories, great pop-culture references, funny, insightful, and hosted by two women that have just the right chemistry to keep you coming back.

Even the Rich

The rich are not like everyone else. They are often embroiled in politics, culture, family rivalries, and squabbling amongst their family members. Sometimes that spills over into public view. The wealthy and ultra-wealthy are simply a different sort of people…. if we can call them that. But their stories continue to fascinate us. This amazing podcast from Wondery takes a look at the lives of the rich. From Jay-Z and Beyoncé to Madonna, and JFK, these are the stories of the rich and famous that throw open the curtain on their oft-times crazy behaviour.

Working Class History

As the title suggests, this show features the history of the every day actions of hundreds of millions. Men, women, youth, people of colour, migrants, LGBTQ+ people, and more – in other words, the working class. How has the working class shaped the world we live in? What role will they have to play in the future? Dedicted to all those who have struggled in the past for a better world, often toiling in obscurity, Working Class History is a wonderful podcast that features the stories of those that have far too often been unheralded.
