Find That Pod # 83

Five Great New Podcasts

Welcome to the 83rd edition of Find That Pod.

This is it. The final edition of Find That Pod before the American Presidential election concludes.

As of this writing, some 85 million votes have already been cast, but in case you’re not one of those Americans who have done so yet, I implore you to do it.

Also bring ten friends and family members. Hoist them by their respective petards to the polls if you have to.

We’re either going to see the end of Western democracy as we know it, or live to fight another day, and begin to fix the inconceivably large pile of damage that has been left behind.

As always, welcome new subscribers! Glad you’ve joined our growing club of podcast fans.

Good luck my American friends! For one, this Canadian is rooting for you.
