Pods You Should Listen To
Welcome to the 31st edition of Find That Pod.
Welcome to November and welcome new subscribers! Speaking of November, I’m sure you’ll be immediately greeted with some god-forsaken Christmas song the moment you dare venture inside any retail establishment as of today. So prepare yourselves accordingly.
I don’t know about you, but I’m still suffering the ill effects of a candy hangover from last night. That said, here are this week’s podcasts for your listening consumption. ENJOY!
Stuff They Don’t Want You to Know
Not everything in this wonderful world of ours is black and white. Sure, most conspiracies are nothing more than that, but from time to time, something just doesn’t smell right? What then? What recourse do we have to get to the truth? The only way is through an examination of the facts and cold-hard investigative work. Dive into the deep of some of the most mysterious events in history with this quality podcast.
The crisis of student loans and the nonsensical rise in higher-learning costs has been a phenomenon in the making for decades. And not just in America. In most places in the world without free college or university education, the costs have risen dramatically while wages have not kept up at all. This is at the heart of what is explored in this fantastic podcast by Dave Ramsey and crew.
Lost at the Smithsonian with Aasif Mandvi
Comedian Aasif Mandvi of The Daily Show fame explores cultural and historical artifacts that have made their way to the National Museum of American History. Muhammad Ali’s Robe, Dorothy’s Ruby Slippers, Fonzie’s Jacket and more. If you’re a fan of cultural history, this young podcast is worth a listen.
This Podcast Will Kill You
It obviously won’t. But the thing they discuss on an episode-by-episode basis surely might. This absolutely great podcast is hosted by ecologists and epidemiologists Erin Welsh and Erin Allman Updyke in which they explore the world of infectious diseases, their history, their biology and finally how much you should be crapping your pants about each potential illness.
Keeping the health theme rolling, this podcast is one of the better shows out there that attempts to help and advise those that are caregiving for anyone with Alzheimer’s, of which, there are sadly far too many people. If you know anyone dealing with this terrible disease in a caregiving capacity, make sure to give this a listen and perhaps recommend it to them.
