Who knew that old-timey radio type programming would be so popular?! Like many other people, I enjoy them so much. They're a huge part of my day (many times a day). They play a big part in my crafting, killing two birds with one stone. You make things while learning things. What could be better? Here is a list of five I've been binging lately:
1. Generation Why is hosted by Aaron and Justin. They are family-friendly and well informed. They cover many subjects from crimes to mysteries and conspiracies. They have a level headed approach to everything they talk about. I particularly appreciate how they don't revel in gruesome details. They've been around since 2012, which means there's a long list of episodes for you to enjoy.
2. Stuff to Blow Your Mind is one of many IHeartRadio productions. It's hosted by Robert Lamb and Joe McCormick. They discuss a variety of fascinating subjects like neurology and space and mythology and so much more. This podcast has been a lifesaver when it comes to awkward social gatherings. I never run out of fun things to talk about. They have an extensive library to explore ensuring you'll be a great conversationalist for years to come.
3. Behind the Bastards is wildly entertaining though slightly depressing. The host, Robert Evans, and his weekly cohosts do not hold back on language or humor when it comes to discussing the most despicable people in history. I cannot recommend this pod for children, but none virgin ears will certainly get a kick out of it. If you're looking for a laugh and a jolt of shock, look no further.
4. Sleepwalkers is yet another IHeartRadio podcast. I'm finding a bit of a trend here. Karah and Oz are incredibly impressive people with amazing resumes and insight into technology. Together they explore the near future we might find ourselves in. Despite recognizing how vulnerable people can be, they don't forget to look at the bright and often beautiful side of new tech.
5. Uncover is a CBC podcast. Every season they explore a new subject in depth. I find their journalistic style to be diligent and compassionate. The features are captivating. Subject matter varies from cults to murder, but they never forget there are people behind every story. It's a bit of a tear-jerker at times so have your tissue paper handy.
