Five Great New Podcasts

Welcome to the 95th edition of Find That Pod.

Welcome new subscribers! Thanks to everyone who submitted their podcasts in this week’s Twitter thread. There’s what appear to be some real gems in there I’m eager to check out.

As always, here are this week’s podcast recommendations:

Myths and Legends Podcast

Sometimes, myths and legends have a kernel of truth. Stories about Aladdin, Hercules, King Arthur, and Hercules are well-known, but there’s far more myths and legends that you may not know that are just as interesting and worth getting to know. It’s time to take a journey into the world of dragons, princesses, knights, wizards, warlords and vikings. If you’re into that sort of thing that is.

Nature Podcast

We’ve seen what incredible things science and medicine can accomplish. Humanity came up with a vaccine that is 94% effective against a novel Coronovirus in under a year. An astounding feat. Science is the way, and if you believe in it as much as I do, you’ll enjoy this podcast that brings you the best stories from the world of science each week. Exciting research, in-depth analysis, and fantastic interviews and guests.

Young House Love

Are you one of those people that consistently watches all those home improvement and real-estate flipping TV shows? No judgement, I used to be one of them as well. I feel like it’s almost a rite-of-passage us North Americans go through. This terrific podcast is dedicated to all things home improvement, design and life at home. So if you’re in the middle of nesting, this podcast is for you.

All-In With Chamath, Jason, Sacks & Friedberg

This one is for the tech and business nerds. Industry veterans including billionaire Chamath Palihapitiya come together to discuss the latest goings-on in the world of tech, social, economics, politics, poker and more. Like I said, this one is for the tech and business nerds. If you’re in Silicon Valley, you’re probably already listening to this one.

Munk Debates

Remember when society wasn’t just a screaming match between the wits and dimwits? Remeber when the world didn’t need to rediscover the art of civil and substantive public debate? That’s the kind of world I want to live in. The Munk Debates podcast is an extension of the stage events put on by this organization that brings together some of the smartest thinkers in the world to debate various topics. It’s like nourishment for your brain.
