Five Great New Podcasts

Welcome to the 97th edition of Find That Pod.

Greetings as always new subscribers! A very busy week around these parts, so without further delay, here are this week’s podcast recommendations:

Vox Conversations

I’m not entirely sure why this podcast is listed under the Philosophy category in Apple Podcasts, but hey, whatever floats your boat Vox. I’ve been a fan of Vox since their web debut a bunch of years back, and despite their Founder’s moving on to the New York Times, they continue to produce a good brand of what they call “explainer jouralism”. The Vox Conversations podcast brings together some of the brightest thinkers to discuss some of the most important topics facing modern society.

Unresolved

What would an edition of this newsletter be without a True Crime podcast? I told myself that I wouldn’t include one this week, but then I got sucked into another great show. But this show isn’t just about unsolved crimes, it also delves iinto the spooky world of unexplained phenomena. Draw your own conclusions people!

The Socially Distance Sports Bar

Sometimes it’s about the sports, and somtimes its about the banter. This is the kind of show, while relatively new, that simply grows on you with each episode. Think of it as three friendly dudes that get easily distracted but somehow manage to pull off an entertaining sports dialogue.

The Future Belongs to Creators

Oh sure, it’s a clear offshoot of a corporate brand, but I couldn’t help get into this podcast from the people at ConvertKit. It’s designed for people like me. Creators. People that make shit on the interwebs. So do you want to know how to turn anxiety into creative output? Give this show a listen.

From Now

If you’re into narrative science fiction podcasts, this right here is your goddamn jam. Here’s all you need to know… it stars Richard Madden (Robb Stark from Game of Thrones), and the legendary Brian Cox from countless amazing roles including as William Stryker in the X-Men movies. The premise of the story is simple: A famed lost spaceship, the USS HOPE, returns to Earth after vanishing thirty five years prior. The lone survivor disembarks mysteriously looking the exact same age as when he left.
