Find That Pod # 56

Five Great New Podcasts

Welcome to the 56th edition of Find That Pod!

Welcome new subscribers!

How’s everyone doing this week? I’m at a point where I’m getting so many great submissions (there’s been an explosion of people starting new podcasts due to the whole you know…*waves arms frantically in every direction* thing.) that I’m starting to feel like five podcasts per week is not enough.

That said, I don’t necessarily want to jam this newsletter with more than five shows to recommend at one time because I’m quite married to this format, and I’ve gotten a lot of great feedback about that particular aspect. So I’m tossing around the idea of adding another paid, members-only newsletter with 5 more suggestions on a different day of the week. I’d probably make the subscription pretty cheap for now, maybe $3 to $4 a month. If I made that an option, how many of you would sign up? If you can give me a YES or NO answer through this Google form, I’d be very grateful.

As always, stay strong, stay safe and stay home if you can.

Here are this week’s podcasts:

Modern Mentor

This long-running, but short (roughly 8 minute episodes) podcast features a nearly endless and useful guide to leadership and communication in a modern workplace environment. What I like about it most is that it is constantly adapting to the changing times. It has some really great recent episodes that discuss things like managing anxiety at work, thoughtful ways to build relationships virtually, and how to communicate successfully when working from home. Give it a spin.

We Don’t Deserve Dogs

Comedians and celebrities tell stories of their favourite pups. A fun and informative show that is designed entirely for those of us who know the special nature of the bond between man and dog. A really great podcast for fans of the man’s best friend.

Write of Passage

Another really great educational podcast, this time from writer David Perell. In this short-snippets podcast, you’ll learn a variety of deep-dive topics about the process of writing. It’s a show for anyone that wants to use their writing to turn themselves into a magnet for people, ideas, and opportunities.

MORE With Anna Maria Tremonti

Well-known and celebrated Canadian radio and television journalist Anna Maria Tremonti takes listeners on a journey into a deep conversation about modern-day topics with some famous guests. It looks like the show may be on hold as it is only managed to put out 10 episodes, but I really hope it comes back soon as it’s got the promise of a really fantastic interview series.

The Topical

Infamous satire news site The Onion has fallen on hard times. Not financially (though maybe, who knows?), but rather because it feels like we’re all living in some twisted satirical Earth 2 scenario that we can’t escape. So what did The Onion do? They started a daily podcast in which they skewer the day’s news in a typically brilliant manner designed to provide a quick and entertaining laugh. Because, after all, laughter is the best medicine? Or is it UV light inside the body and swallowing disinfectant? I can’t quite remember.
