The leaves are turning and the world is burning. But hey, at least we’ve got some great new podcasts to listen to! So off you go, add some of these to your podcast player of choice, you won’t regret it.
The Thinking Atheist
As host of one of the most popular atheist communities on the web, Seth Andrews brings forth a fascinating podcast that not only explores modern topics around religion or lack-thereof but also explores many, what I would call “atheist-adjacent” topics as well. An extremely well-produced show that is both thought-provoking and intended to be welcoming and inclusionary.
Why Would You Go There?
Travelling can be great. But today’s younger generations seem to have taken the glamourization of it to nearly comic and farcical extents. Exhibit 1? Look no further than Instagram. That’s why when I stumbled across this podcast it was such a refreshing listen. Sure it’s tag line is probably somewhat informative: “Two idiots talk about traveling the world” but it’s truly worth a listen if you plan on going to any of the places these two gents have already been.
Our Fake History
This is a one-man history myth-busting podcast like no other. What an awesome find for anyone that wants to get through the bullshit you may have been shoveled down your throat by bad history teachers and textbooks alike, along with general myths about history that have been perpetuated for far too long. Get yourself some history facts yo!

It’s a weekly mix of interviews, storytelling and insightful conversations with some of the most interesting and informed people on this side of the world.
