Find That Pod # 62

Five Great New Podcasts

Welcome to the 62nd edition of Find That Pod.

Thank you to everyone who submitted their podcasts this week. Rest assured, you’re on my growing list of shows to listen to.

In my continuing series of podcaster interviews, this week I spoke with Laurel Hostak and Derek Jones of the Midnight Myth Podcast. You can read the full interview HERE.

What a not-so-fun week. Bunker Bitch is hiding in the People’s White House, and the police are simply proving the point of the protesters, over and over and over and over again.

So this week we’re going to do something a little different. In a previous newsletter, I had highlighted the 1619 podcast. If you want to know how it all started in America, this is a good primer to give you some base-level knowledge.

Additionally, this week’s chosen podcasts are my meagre attempt to amplify the voices of those that you should hear right now.

Code Switch

Hosted by journalists of colour, this mostly weekly podcast tackles all issues of race in America, and the impacts on people and the country as a whole.

The Nod

Well-known Podcast producer Gimlet media brings forward a podcast featuring stories of Black life and culture that don’t often get told. It’s more of a celebration of the genius, innovation and resilience that is particular to being Black in America.
