Five Great New Podcasts
Welcome to the 40th edition of Find That Pod.
A Happiest New Year to all of you! I hope you all had a chance for some rest, relaxation and festive cheer, and of course an opportunity to catch-up on all those great podcasts I recommended in 2019.
2020 should be no different, each week I’ll continue to bring you podcasts that I believe deserve your attention. As always, don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and watch for our weekly recommendation thread where we ask our followers to suggest podcasts we haven’t heard of before. Let’s begin the year, shall we?
Outside / In
While we still have a natural world to explore, this terrific podcast aims to explore the various wonders of the natural world as well as our relationship with nature, unintended consequences of preservation, invasive species and more. A really great listen for nature lovers and anyone interested in the natural world.
My First Million
From the same people that brought you the famous The Hustle newsletter, comes a podcast that is almost entirely focused on interviewing entrepreneurs about what led them to their early success, and their financial road to 1 million dollars and beyond. Some of them simply started businesses, while others made an iPhone app, yet others still got lucky on Bitcoin or timed the real-estate market right. Learn from those who have already done it and maybe you’ll get your next brilliant money-making idea. <- Wow. I just realized how scammy this description sounds, it’s not meant to be, I genuinely found this podcast to be of good value.
Award-winning historian, Brad Harris takes you on a journey through history with. focus on the biggest historical forces that have shaped modern civilization. Everyone thinks that Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History is the king-daddy of history podcasts, but I would rate Context right up there without the 6-hour play-times associated with the former.
Beyond the Dollar
It has always been one of the biggest mysteries of my life. Why is the topic of money such an incredibly powerful taboo topic. People avoid talking about money like they avoid the plague. Each episode features the host, Sarah Li-Cain speaking with a guest in a frank and candid way about money and how it affects people’s lives.
I suppose it may have something to do with the fact that we just hit the new year, that I’ve clearly got MONEY on my mind as this is the third money related podcast I’m recommending in this week’s newsletter. I know that the topic of money is on a lot of people’s minds this time of year also, so it’s without regret that I’m happy to recommend another strong show about business and the business of making money.
