Who We Are
I wouldn’t exactly describe this as a fun podcast, but nevertheless it might give you something to think about. Chronicling the history of racism in America, hosts Carvell Wallace and ACLU Deputy Director Jeffery Robinson take a look back in time to discover the roots of white supremacy in American life and examine how those early threads have continued to haunt American life ever since.
All in the Mind
This weekly podcast from the land of Koala bears and Kangaroos is a regular look into the universe of the mind. Behaviour, the brain, consciousness, artificial intelligence, psychology, addiction, are all topics that are explored with a deft and intelligent approach by host Lynne Malcolm. Highly recommend to anyone interested in this area of science.

There are simply so many fascinating characters and stories to explore that it’s no wonder a podcast like this has come along to thrive off all that lore.
