Now, for a special summer delight:
It’s been years since I did a favorite things post. But, as we slowly ebb into “normal” life, here are some of the podcasts I’ve been listening to. I listen while I…
- Walk the dog (Arlo, yes that’s him!)
- Clean the house
- Work out, and
- In the car (although I have not been driving much recently!)
I admit it, I’m a bit of a podcast glutton.
Here is a sampling of those I’ve been enjoying lately.
Underunderstood Explanations of odd questions that occur to the hosts, or that might occur to you. Recent episodes: What happened to a lost Wikipedia page; what’s the deal with the logic and inequity of area codes.
Cautionary Tales : Tim Harford, prolific and captivating economist shares stories of things gone awry through avoidable human error! I recommend his books as well.
Decoder An exploration of the intersection of technology, business, and life.
Analysis A BBC program that explores all kinds of things. Recent episodes include one on personality profiles and another on the future of Silicon Valley after COVID. It helps if you know a bit about Britain and its politics.
This should keep you riveted for a while. Please send me your feedback and your recommendations on new and interesting podcasts!
