Five Great New Podcasts
Welcome to the 55th edition of Find That Pod!
Welcome new subscribers and followers. Thanks for all the amazing suggestions everyone added in this week’s twitter thread and to all of you that emailed in.
I have one favour to ask of you this week. While this newsletter is free for you, it’s not free for me to run. That said, I’m trying to grow the subscriber base pretty aggressively this year, and I would really appreciate it if you could share this newsletter with someone. There are some handy share buttons at the bottom of this email you can use. Thanks, everyone!
As always, stay strong, stay safe and stay home if you can.
Here are this week’s podcasts:
Everything is Alive
I’m going to start off this week with something a little bit different. And I’m not going to lie, the premise of this podcast sounds ridiculous at first. But once you get into it, you’ll see that it is well worth your listen. I’ll just leave this description here: “Everything is Alive is an unscripted interview show in which all the subjects are inanimate objects. In each episode, a different thing tells us its life story–and everything it says is true.”
Good Luck Sleeping
Dubbing themselves the “spooky sisters”, hosts Rachel and Kaila take on all things mysterious, paranormal, true crime and everything in between in this well-produced podcast that as its title suggests perhaps may give you some trouble sleeping. But don’t worry, with this podcast, at least you’ll have some good laughs along the way.
Everyone Hates Marketers
I can definitely attest to the fact that the only people that don’t hate marketers are marketers themselves. This is a terrific podcast for those in the marketing game of all stripes. Host Louis Grenier has the ability to get to the bottom of the actionable tips and actions that you can take to improve your marketing game throughout his interviews with successful marketers from around the world. A truly great podcast for anyone hawking almost anything these days.
LBJ and the Great Society
Through the course of this podcast, and through little-known White House recordings you get the sense that President Lyndon B. Johnson, while remembered mostly for his catastrophic failure in Vietnam, was perhaps one of, if not the most domestically successful U.S. president of all time. A truly fascinating look at how through enactments such as Medicare, civil and voting rights, Head Start, immigration reform, and public broadcasting, LBJ changed America forever…. well at least for up till now.
