In case you didn’t know, podcasts are a huge trend in media content lately! A podcast is essentially just an audio recording that can cover an infinite number of topics, from education to comedy, storytelling and self-help, and can range in length from short, easy to listen to episodes to long, in depth deep dives. No matter what you are looking for in your auditory entertainment, there is a podcast for you!
This week we have rounded up a few of our personal favorite podcasts to share. Here is a peak into what we listen to:
Stuff You Missed In History Class: A long running podcast from How Stuff Works, Stuff You Missed In History Class is currently hosted by 2 ladies; Tracy and Holly, who will gleefully let you know on all the amazing events, people, locations and even modern archeological discoveries that today’s schooling may have glossed over.
Why We Love It: You have to know your past, in order to make the most of your future. We learn from what was done before in order to improve upon it for the next time. So we love learning about all the amazing women, men, inventors, explorers and cultures that have come before us. There is a massive backlog of episodes from the current and previous hosts, so you’ll have plenty to catch up on! And a bonus, no pop quizzes!
Revisionist History with Malcom Gladwell: They say history is written by the winners, and in each episode of Revisionist History, Malcom Gladwell goes back and reinterprets something from the past: an event, a person, an idea. Something that was overlooked. Somethings that were just misunderstood. Each episode is fascinating and never unfolds how you think it will.
Why We Love It: Sometimes you have to take a step back and look at something from a different angle to really understand it all. We’re always looking to be better informed, and Revisionist History is a fantastic way to challenge your preconceived notions. And yes, we miss the original McDonald fries too…
