Pod Review December 7-13

CaptureHere’s the pods of the week:

  • Best of both worlds podcast with Laura Vanderkam and Sarah Hart-unger #117 : Evenings Routines & Logistics with Sarah Powers. It was full of great ideas for kids of all ages.
  • Where Should we Begin with Esther Perel: Happily divorced; about unconventional marriage arrangements far from preconceptions and limitations.
  • Before breakfast podcast with Laura Vanderkam: A 2-minute ritual that can change your day (November 6, 2019)
  • Sinica podcast: China and the techno-authoritarian narrative (2019-11-22) – frankly fascinating, but it went well over my head. Perhaps I should re-listen to this talk, one day, because it’s so rich. Democracy, Western capitalism, technology…
  • Atlanta Monster: S1E4 Gemini. I was a bit bummed out because I couldn’t understand much of the Southern accent (as a non-native English speaker) and there was a lot of unfounded allegations, which I hope will be backed in the next episodes. I’m not quitting though (yet?)
  • Before breakfast podcast with Laura Vanderkam: When you make a mistake at work (October 29, 2019)
  • Heavyweight #29 Elyse: this one was a bit disappointing (as was the main protagonist)
  • American Girls podcast : Meet Felicity, Meet Us (2019-02-28), which I heard from this article in the NYT. It was interesting, but I found it a bit hard to follow for those who don’t remember exactly the story of the dolls, and the tone was a bit too snarky for me. (I so wanted to have a doll like that when I was a non-American kid. Go figure)
  • ♥ The Last Podcast on the Left #378 : Mormonism Part I – When You’re Here You’re Family, warmly recommended by Annie (here). It was the second time in a short while that I’d heard about this podcast (the first being on Sorta Awesome, which I wouldn’t have credited for something so… salty). I literally LOL alone in the street (creepy!) and France being on strike, I needed that so much in my crazy day. It’s not my usual fare but I really want to listen more, even though it’s long (1.5 hour!)

I love making new podcast discoveries! What great podcast episode would you recommend?

  1. I am so hooked on Last Podcast on the Left, even though they get raunchy sometimes. I love their twisted, irreverent take on horrible history.
