Now that a lot more of us are starting to work from home due to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, we’re all going to need a lot more podcasts to listen to, aren’t we? Don’t worry, I’m here to help:
The Retro Cinema Podcast
Ah, the 80’s. A more innocent time, filled with plenty of nostalgia for kids like me. The toys, the music, the mixtapes, the Walkman, Hip-Hop, Transformers, the video games, the ridiculous clothes, and of-course the awesome and equally cheesy movies. These are just some of the cultural stalwarts that defined the decade that is now, somehow by one count over 40 years ago (WTF?!). The Retro Cinema Podcast is a great resource for experiencing that nostalgia through terrific reviews of movies that made an appearance during the greedy ’80s.
Life Kit: Parenting
From NPR comes this relative newcomer to the sphere of parenting podcasts. Topics include things like how to talk to your kids about death, talking race with your children, the idea of kindness, screen-time, and the usual hot-button parenting topics. Worth a listen if you’ve got kids of any age.
Marriage & Martinis
This no-holds-barred podcast is one of the most authentic relationship shows I’ve had the pleasure of stumbling onto. Married couple Danielle and Adam don’t hold back with their stories of love, sex, embarrassment, parenting, struggles, humiliation and every other aspect of marriage one tends to encounter in a long-term relationship. Honestly, one of the more relatable and refreshing podcasts you’ll encounter.
Off-Camera With Sam Jones
Much of the world is defined by the way we’ve used up and are currently using its resources. As a society, it would seem that we are on the precipice of continuing to hurtle into a precarious future with unknown and unintended consequences. In this intelligent weekly discussion, topics such as climate change, electricity generation, ecosystems and more are discussed and dissected.
