Five Great New Podcasts
Welcome to the 99th edition of Find That Pod.
I guess it’s the Wayne Gretzky edition of the newsletter. That’s the Canadian coming out in me. Before I tell you about the podcasts you should check out this week, I’m doing a bit of promo-swapping with another one of my podcast recommendation newsletter friends. This time it’s my friends at Podyssey. Check out their ad below and subscribe to their service, it’s pretty good!
True crime can be both gruesome and unsettling. But this podcast specializes in another form of crime. The white-collar criminal kind. Through the use of narrative story-telling, archival audio, and high-quality soundscapes, this show explores the world of corruption, corporate evil, Ponzi schemes, and more.
Full Stack Radio
It’s estimated that there are somewhere around 30-35 million software engineers / developers / programmers in the world. But no matter what you call them, there’s no doubt that they have transformed the world over the last 4-5 decades. And from what I understand of my newsletter audience, there’s more than a few of you developers reading this right now. This show is for those that are interested in building great software products. The show covers everything from product design to unit testing and everything in between. Definitely worth a listen.
The History of Literature
From what I gather, both in the news and from personal anecdote, the pandemic has done something very strange to our collective reading habits. It’s been a bifurcation of readers into two camps. Many of us have suddenly found ourselves having an increasingly harder time finding both the time and mental effort to get through entire books. While others have found it easier. I’m not entirely sure what that’s all about, but if you’re one of those that has a deep kinship with the written word, this podcast is for you. It’s about great books and the people that wrote them.
Sticky Notes: The Classical Music Podcast
The United States of Anxiety
It’s hard to go wrong with a podcast from WNYC Studios, and this show is no exception. Once a week, host Kai Wright digs into some deep and intimate conversations about the choice that America has made. Is it the society the nation wants? Is it the society it deserves. Increasingly, these are becoming more urgent questions. Well worth a subscribe.
