Find That Pod # 53

Five Great New Podcasts

Welcome to the 53rd edition of Find That Pod, and warm greetings to new subscribers.

While you’re hopefully continuing to hunker down in your safe spaces, did you ever think we’d actually be living in a goddamn pandemic movie? No? Me neither… and that’s the part of all of this that just feels so strange and surreal.

Many of you have been asking me for a concise list of all the podcasts I’ve featured in the past year, so I went ahead and compiled them by category into this article: I Recommended 260 Podcasts Over the Past Year. They’re Here to Keep You Quarantine Company.

While we all continue to try and get through this as best as we can… I’ll continue to sign-off with this: stay strong, stay safe and stay home if you can.

Here are this week’s podcasts:

American Glutton

A lot of us now have more time on our hands, and that means that a lot of us are trying to get more fit. Enter Actor Ethan Suplee’s fabulous podcast about examining America’s obesity crisis. He goes in-depth with a wide variety of experts on what kind of diets he’s explored, what’s worked for him and others, and what you can do to get into better shape. A really terrific podcast that will shed some light on why it’s so difficult to lose weight and maintain that loss, and what you can do to turn it around.

Business Wars

An interesting podcast for those that want the inside scoop on how certain companies compete against each other and often go to capitalistic war, using questionable and shrewd tactics to get a leg-up on their rivals. The outcome of these battles often shapes the things we end up buying as consumers.

Focused

Hosts David Sparks (podcaster, blogger, business attorney) and Mike Schmitz (author and self-proclaimed productivity nerd), take to the podcasting world to discuss ways that they are continually trying to be more productive in their working lives. They discuss successes and failures along the way and share the tools that have helped them work more effectively and efficiently.

Smashing Security

If you want a slightly lighter look at the world technology snafus, cybersecurity, hacking and internet threats, this podcast will be your jam. Hosts Graham Cluley and Carole Theriault invite expert guests to chat about cybercrime, hacking and online privacy in a way that won’t bore you to tears and also won’t have you wondering what the hell all the acronyms they are bandying about are.

Flashback

This brand new podcast from the boys at RelayFM offers a fun and light look at tech products that never quite found their groove and were perhaps killed off prematurely. Failed tech products are what this podcast is all about, and although they’re only four episodes in, it seems like a very promising podcast to keep on your radar.
