Five Great New Podcasts

Welcome to the 88th edition of Find That Pod.

It looks like we made it to the double-snowman edition of this newsletter. Are you ready to dive in to some great new shows this weekend?

But before you do, let me ask one quick favour. If you’re not following me on Twitter, head on over and give us a follow. Merci Beaucoup!

Here are this week’s podcast recommendations:

What’sHerName

Produces and hosted by two very smart and knowledgeable women, Katie Nelson and Olivia Meikle, this podcast is about the rediscovery of women in the past that were too quickly forgotten or not written about. While some are a bit more known, you’ll definitely discover plenty of fascinating women you’ve never heard of. A pretty terrific podcast for history buffs.

Web Crawlers

True crime with a hint of comedy and plenty of entertaining listening is what you’ll get if you decide to binge or subscribe to this podcast. Follow hosts Melissa and Ali as they dive into the rabbit holes of fascinating true crime, maybe-true-crime and maybe-paranormal-bullshit stories. In any case, these two ladies are a truly funny listen. Give this show a shot, I promise you won’t regret it.

The Tennis Podcast

Amidst this oh-so-not-fun pandemic time that we’re going through, sports have been but just one casualty. I’m actually amazed at how well the NBA and NHL managed to bubble themselves in to complete last year’s season. If you’re a fan of Tennis, you know that the sport has been moderately successful in their attempts to circumvent the pandemic as well. Nevertheless if you’re a fan of tennis, from the occasional enthusiast to the hardcore fan, you’ll enjoy this show.

Teamistry

Don’t get me wrong. This is one of those podcasts created by a company to increase its mindshare about their services and probably make more money. That much is obvious. But despite that, they’ve actually created a pretty good podcast along the way. So for all of you that want to learn more about the mechanics, stories, techniques and struggles of people work well together, this show is a good primer. It’s all about how teams come together to achieve what was at times thought to be impossible.

#Elder Wisdom | Stories from the Green Bench

Seniors have so much to offer society. Their wisdom and knowledge coupled with their life experience is often, tragically overlooked and ignored. Even worse, they often face stigma wrapped up in a nasty combination of ageism and ignorance. This podcast, from Schlegel Villages aims to help change that. Featuring stories of friendship, love, tragedy, life, and learning, it reminds us that sometimes we all need to listen to our elders and gain from their wisdom. A special shout-out to my wife who turned me onto this beautiful podcast.
