When I was reading my previous blog post, I was surprised I didn’t include this the first time round. Radiolab, produced by WNYC studios and presented by Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich. It is show that pulls together science, story telling, history and music in one compelling podcast. I originally found this podcast googling interesting podcast’s to listen too and some of the stories that are told are truly fascinating. Shows in the series that are worth listening too include Null and Void, Heneritta Lacks, Seneca, Nebraska and The Girl Who Doesn’t Exist.
I am a sucker for satire and Page 94 the Private Eye Podcast fills the gap nicely. Private Eye is a British political satirical magazine (think Have I Got News For You) and focuses on current British topics. It is not every week unfortunately but the back episodes are well worth a listen.
Another WNYC production (I am not being sponsored by them, promise!) this show is about the Supreme Court in America and how this group makes the decisions that affect people’s lives. It is fascinating to learn about the American justice system and how they come to these decisions. Episodes worth a listen include Adoptive Person V Baby Girl, The Political Thicket and Object Anyway.
I quite like Freddie Flintoff and watch League of their Own and Lord of the Fries and my partner recommended this. This podcast presented by Matthew Syed an ex English number 1 table tennis player talks about current issues in sport but with a psychological edge. I have listened to this and I enjoyed the honesty that Robbie Savage and Freddie talk about. Their mental health podcast in particular being honest about matches their team mates were playing and they weren’t and they wanted that team to lose because if they won they wouldn’t be part of this. Is so raw because I do not think anyone would admit to that.
Do you have any podcast’s that you would recommend?
