Five Great New Podcasts
Welcome to the 41st edition of Find That Pod.
Welcome new subscribers! Sounds like things are afoot in the podcasting world with Spotify announcing dynamically inserted podcast ads based on what they know about you. How does everyone feel about that?
In any case, as long as the podcast is high quality and as long as I’m always to skip ads, I personally don’t care whether ads are being directed at me because of some profile that’s been built up in a database. Ok, enough pontificating on that topic, here are this week’s 5 podcasts you should definitely check out:
Brought to you from the people that run one of my favourite daily newsletters (The Morning Brew), comes a weekly podcast that discusses the week’s business news, and more importantly takes a deeper dive on events in the business world with CEO’s, entrepreneurs and thought leaders. Hosted by Morning Brew’s talented business writer, Kinsey Grant.
An incredibly haunting podcast about a story that in my opinion got far too little press coverage. Perhaps it’s because it’s about a crime by two Canadian men that were ultimately apprehended in the U.S., or because it’s such an icky topic that frankly almost no-one wants to think about. Nevertheless, if you’re into true crime podcasts and want to learn about how an international team of experts and law enforcement took down one of the largest child-pornography rings in the world, this podcast is for you.
If you have an interest in how technology continues to change the nature of work and what to expect in the coming decade of disruption, check out this podcast. Brought to you by Carnegie Mellon University, topics such as industry disruption, algorithmic bias, human-AI collaboration, reskilling and the future of work are discussed in a compelling and convincing way.
The Story of a Brand
The topic of E-Commerce has been near and dear to my heart for a long time as I’ve twice ran online stores of some consequence. That’s probably why I found this podcast that features some fantastic interviews with e-commerce entrepreneurs so fascinating. Each episode is like a mini-entrepreneur-MBA. Whether it’s how the brand obsesses over the customer experience or how they design or manufacturer their product or their stance on social issues, it’s a great listen for anyone in the e-commerce racket.
Girls on P… (I know it’s not spelled that way)
I went ahead and abbreviated the full-name of this podcast because I know that including its full name would completely tank the deliverability of this newsletter as I’m sure it would run afoul of many a spam filter, but this podcast was simply too great not to include this week. Hosted by two New Yorkers, Laura and Rachel, these gals aim to find naughty material for you to peruse that is not only of the highest quality, but also ethical. Think of it as a naughty material review podcast that might just turn you on.
