Five Great New Podcasts

Welcome to the 89th edition of Find That Pod.

As always, greetings to all new subscribers. Thanks for joining us. I’m starting to contemplate doing something special for edition #100 of the newsletter, but I haven’t quite landed on the right idea yet.

Got some suggestions? Ping me on Twitter or email them to me.

Here are this week’s podcast recommendations:

Sayer

It’s good to get away from the day-to-day non-fiction sometimes and dive headlong into a great piece of Science Fiction. That’s exactly what the Sayer podcast is. Having completed five seasons thus far, this show is set on Earth’s man-made second moon, Typhon. SAYER is a highly advanced AI that’s been created to help new Typhone residents acclimate to their new lives and employment. And that’s all I’m willing to say without spoiling anything. If you’re into narrative Sci-Fi, give this show a shot.

Committed

Let’s face it, romantic relationships are as wide-ranging and complicated as the rest of the variety that our world has to offer us. So it’s no wonder, that sometimes, people in relationships fuck them up a little bit. We’ve all done it, present company included. This show explores the heartbreaking, sometimes inspiring and often semi-hilarious circumstances that couples have gone through and somehow managed to survive. Kind of a feel-good show if you’re into that sort of thing. Did I just say “feel-good” ew… what a sap I’ve turned into in my advancing age.

Popular Front

This very interesting podcast features independent journalists that document the less known and under-reported conflicts happening in the world. From modern niche warfare to which paramilitary factions are operating where in the world, this podcast is for you. Detailed, uncensored and not beholden to any particular media group or government.

Paper Ghosts

The cases of four young girls, who all went missing in the early to mid-1970’s in neighbouring New England towns with no arrests in over 50 years is the basis of this 10-episode limited series podcast. What happened? Who did it? Why did they do it? This show is what quality true crime podcasts should aspire to.

Decoder With Nilay Patel

This business and technology focused podcast is from the peeps at The Verge. You know, that big tech website. Specifically, Editor-in-Chief, Nilay Patel takes on various guests that are relevant to today’s business and technology landscape and I must admit, I forgot how good of an interviewer Nilay is. There’s definitely no fear about riling up some of his guests. That’s the kind of business / tech journalism I like to see. You might like it also! Be warned though, this is a new show, so there isn’t a big back catalog of episodes to binge on just yet.
