I’m sewing and catching up on Radiolab podcasts. Their byline is “Investigating a strange world” and they do just that. There are two hosts, Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich and, together, they explore a wide range of topics that include (but are not limited to) science, medicine, art, music, and much more. I learn something in every post.
This one, on poison control, is really interesting. Click the link below the photo to open the player or click here to go to the podcast page.
There are several podcasts on Color. Google ‘Radiolab Color podcasts’ and you will find links. And the podcasts with, or about, Oliver Sachs are wonderful!
If you are not averse to listening to stories that relate to current hot-button issues, I would recommend the Border Trilogy podcasts. I was personally interested to hear a side of the story that I had not heard before, one that challenged me to think differently. The same was true, for me at least, in the Gunshow podcast.
So there you go. I’m going back to sewing, and listening!
I try to listen to podcasts while I sew. This American Life is a favorite. But the whirring of the machine drowns out the voices. How do you listen?
I turn the volume up just enough to hear and not be annoying.
