I’m always looking for things to listen to while I work, so I thought I’d share a few podcasts that I’ve been enjoying lately. Hopefully there will be a couple you haven’t heard before!
I’ve been an avid listener of shows like Radiolab (is the show less interesting now or is it just me?) and This American Life (my favourite story is from “Tough Room” the peek at joke-writing for The Onion, and my favourite episode was definitely “Retraction” where Ira grills Mike Daisey for lying about his trip to the Apple factory).
I also have to mention that Mark Maron’s WTF episode with Louis C.K. is easily my favourite episode of any podcast. If you haven’t heard it, it’s on youtube, the two talk very openly and honestly about why they aren’t close friends anymore. It is amazing.
Okay, have a listen to these 6 completely unrelated podcasts below covering everything from art, design, voyeurism, skateboarding, Pulp Fiction, and Facebook drama. If you have recommendations for others to check out please leave a comment – I’d love to listen to them.
Latvian filmmaker, Gints Zilbalodis, manages to capture a lot of emotion in his latest short about a trumpet player, struggling to cope with the loss of his hearing after a freak accident. Great use of sound and music by Bertrams Pauls Purvišķis as well. Watch the full video below!
