Five Great New Podcasts

Welcome to the 59th edition of Find That Pod.

Election Profit Makers

When I first heard about this show, I thought the premise sounded very strange. And it might look weird to you as well. After all, what the hell is a prediction market, and how does it relate to the news and elections? With plenty of celebrity guests and both funny and informative discussions, this informal and conversational podcast is highly entertaining. Don’t miss it!

Wind of Change

This is a brand new podcast. So new in fact that it only has one episode so far. But if that episode is an indication of what’s to come, this is going to wind up being one of the best shows of 2020.
