Find That Pod # 64

Five Great New Podcasts

Welcome to the 64th edition of Find That Pod.

Welcome, all new subscribers. You guys went a little crazy with this week’s twitter thread, and boy, there are plenty of new gems in there for me to listen to, so thank you for your submissions.

This week I spoke with Tiffany Arment, host of three fantastic podcasts including Make Do, Top Four (which she does with her husband Marco Arment – the creator of my favourite podcast player, Overcast), and Somehow I Manage. Check out my interview with Tiffany here.

Here are this week’s podcasts:

I’m Not Crazy, You’re Crazy

Friendships, relationships, romance, work, it’s all pretty messy and complicated at the best of times. Then throw a global pandemic, mass unemployment and civil unrest on top of that and your relationships with the people around you can get even more complex. Hosts Bekah and Michael take listener stories and use them to give advice to the world. And from the shows that I listened to, that advice seems both on point, funny, and entertaining. So if you sometimes feel like you’re taking crazy pills and no-one around you can relate to your relationship troubles, you’ll likely enjoy this podcast.

DISTILLATIONS

This podcast is simply supreme and superb storytelling. Its purpose is to go in-depth on science’s role in a complicated world and how it’s shaped history. They’re recent “Pandemic Perspectives” episodes with interviews of scientists, CEOs, entrepreneurs and epidemiologists, have been spectacular. So if you’re into history and science, give this show a listen.

ReConsider

Facts. They’re a precious thing these days. Which itself is kind of mindblowing isn’t it? If you want some facts in your life regarding current events, the hosts of this show do a pretty great job at that. Not only do they deconstruct the headlines, but they also provide a very information-rich analysis. Depth and intelligent perspectives are not missing in this podcast. So do me a favour, if you want to get a tiny bit more informed on topics of foreign policy, current affairs and public policy while listening to a podcast that respects the listener, give this a subscribe.

The Edge of Sleep

The premise of this episodic mystery is simple. A nigh watchman finishes his shift at work but then quickly discovers that everyone around the world that went to sleep the previous night has died. Is it a new global pandemic? Are aliens involved? Was it a biochemical attack from a foreign adversary? I guess you’ll just have to listen and find out how he and a small band of survivors try to stay awake while trying to discover the truth of what’s happening.

Extremities

This show has a bit of a different narration style than perhaps you’re used to. It’s a one-man show, but it’s actually pretty awesome. The Extremities podcast is a well-researched show about some of the places, people and circumstances of some of the most remote places on earth. It’s about why and how people live in these places and survive the isolation and extreme weather elements to thrive as functioning members of society.
