Five Great New Podcasts
Welcome to the 81st edition of Find That Pod.
As always, welcome new subscribers! Boy am I excited for those new iPhones. You guys and gals also?
Here are this week’s podcast recommendations:
Don’t Ask Tig
Comedia Tig Notaro (who also stars on Star Trek: Discovery) takes a well trodden but also well executed path to the format of her podcast. She gets questions, and brings on celebrities to help her answer them. Sometimes the answers are helpful, sometimes they’re not. But they’re always entertaining. I think Anna Faris is the one the first popularized this format with her now long-running podcast, Unqualified.
How to Save a Planet
Does climate change freak you out? Me too. Here’s a podcast that aims to tackle those fears and replace them with things you can do to force the countries, corporations and organizations to get their shit together. Founder of Gimlet and journalist Alex Blumberg and scientist Dr. Alyana Elizabeth Johnson host this highly informative show.
Think you know the Tiger Woods story? Maybe you don’t know it as well as you think you do. Imagine being famous for decades. What kind of impact does that have? This season of All-American explores the Tiger Woods story and what the media has been getting wrong.
Star Trek: The Pod Directive
The James Altucher Show
This is one hell of a rabbit hole podcast. Now running or well over six hundred episodes, there is a massive back-library of fascinating material to dig through. And its no wonder. James Altucher is a bit of a polymath. He’s a successful investor and entrepreneur, a ranked chess master, and author of a best-selling book.
His show features performers at the very peak of their crafts and professions. Think billionaires, best-selling authors, actors, comedians, astronauts, and world champions. They’re all guests on this incredible podcast that you shouldn’t miss.
