It has been a while since I made a list with some good Podcasts. So I decided to use my space here this month to fix that. I hope you enjoy it!
The Daily is a daily news podcast made by the The New York Times. The Pod is hosted by Times political journalist Michael Barbaro. And its 20-minute episodes are based on the Times' reporting of the day.
I’ve been a big fan of The Daily from the very beginning. Michael Barbaro does an excellent job reporting news in a respectfully unbiased way. It is refreshing to listen to something like The Daily in this modern post-truth, “fake news” world.
The Podcast is basically a blend of current events as well as more unconventional topics that one might not hear about in other news outlets.
The Pod has excellent reporting and great questions. I always learn something new from each episode. It's hard to believe how much information is put into 20 minutes!
We Hate Movies
Each week the We Hate Movie gang force themselves to watch bad movies that were better left forgotten.
I only recently found this podcast but I’m having a blast listening to it. I listen to several movies and pop culture Podcasts but this one is quickly becoming my favorite one.
They all care about movies and you can tell that they are good friends, which helps the chemistry. I love watching terrible movies so half the time I end up seeing the movie first and then listening to the podcast.
Basically, If you also enjoy bad movies, love to laugh and want to hear some great Impressions and a lot of self-deprecation. You should tune into the WHM
99% Invisible is a weekly exploration of the process and power of design and architecture. The Podcast is host by award-winning producer Roman Mars.
This Pod has the perfect blend of design, journalism, architecture, and culture/society themes. And it makes subjects that normally we would say “I don’t care about this”, very interesting
I really like the little think pieces about design and its role in our everyday life. It is impeccably researched and always interesting. It also has a wonderfully charming delivery from its host.
99% Invisible is fascinating, knowledgeable, and fresh.
On the Waking Up Podcast Sam Harris— A neuroscientist, philosopher, and best-selling author— is able to bring us a rational and smart conversation with wonderful guests.
Sam Harris is not for everyone. He is controversial and manages to rub some people the wrong way most of the time. But if you are like me, and you’re interested in fascinating conversations on many of today's most important questions in our society, this Podcast will be perfect for you.
Sam is an incredible thinker and great interviewer. He leads the interviews perfectly. He mostly has interesting guests and I really respect the amount of background research he does to ask all those really good questions.
Inside The Hive With Nick Bilton
Every week, Nick Bilton interviews the leading minds in tech, politics, and culture to find out what motivates them, how they make decisions, what keeps them up at night, where their ideas come from, who they look to for advice, and where they think their industry is going.
Bilton is an excellent interviewer. And on this Pod, you will find great discussions focusing on relevant and engaging topics in tech, politics and more.
All the discussions in this show are really interesting and engaging; Inside the Hive has quickly replaced 1 or 2 other pods I listened to. I wish it was on more often than once a week. Because I generally feel more informed about a topic after listening to the Pod.
Sometimes Bilton only has a conversation with a colleague. Sometimes he does an interview. But he is always well informed and very well researched. He manages to do interviews with people like Bob Iger (the CEO of Disney) and find out how they operated. And that is because the questions are always insightful and clever. Great Podcast, and I highly recommend everyone to check it out.
