What podcast episode have you heard lately?

There are lots of very good podcasts, but too many to hear them all. There might be specific episodes that members enjoy. So, what interesting podcast episode have you heard lately?

I enjoyed this interview with Judith Grisel on Fresh Air,
Quote:
The Neuroscience Of Addiction
Growing up, Judith Grisel struggled with alcohol, marijuana and cocaine. Now, as a neuroscientist, she's working to understand the biological basis of addiction. Her new book is 'Never Enough.' Grisel talks about how various drugs affect the brain, and her own experience with addiction. Grisel has been clean and sober for 30 years.

I recently listened to and thoroughly enjoyed a podcast called The Dropout. It's about Elizabeth Holmes and the Theranos scandal. Looking forward to the upcoming HBO documentary on the same subject, called The Inventor.

Kate Bowler's Everything Happens podcast is great, but I think the episode where she interviews Alan Alda is a must listen for anyone in the medical profession and also anyone who might ever get sick or have to help an ill family member: Can you hear me now?
It's about communication (or the lack thereof) between medical professionals and patients - an area Alan Alda has worked extensively in recently.

All of the episodes of Mobituaries with Mo Rocca have been really good so far.

I like the "JFK Impersonator Vaughn Meader: Death of a Career" episode. Perhaps because I remember them both fairly well.

1) Bear brook - Decades old crime, the birth of DNA testing, ... And some very interesting good guy characters. So very enjoyable
2) Criminal so many interesting stories ..
3) Choose FI because they preach the life I lived
4) Stacking Benjamins same as #3
5) The Moth because people, their lives and experiences are interesting. Especially told by those who lived it.
6) this American life because like #5 great stories. Interesting topics
7) side hustle because entrepreneurship is of interest to me.

Great topic MichaelB I would love to find more interesting Podcasts - its like walking while having a chat with a good friend.

Drove up to see DD+fam this weekend and had lots of podcast time. The two I liked best,of the recent FT Alphachat sessions: Immigration (3/22) and Brexit (3/29). No policy advocacy or ideology, just very good background and analysis.

Dan Carlin's Hard Core History

The Six Part series on WWI, which combined is the length of a big audio book, is simply fantastic.

Podcast keep my exercise walking from being boring and bam 60 minutes goes by like nothing.

The latest episode of Criminal is the story of a Sylvan Simmons framed by a violent, fast on the trigger, lying police officer. Sylvan was shot several times and then the police planted a gun and doctored then evidence. The Jury found Sylvan innocent of all charges except 1 gun charge that the judge reversed to innocent.

It is an outrage that no police were prosecuted ... Great stories evoke emotion .. this one did. By the way this isnít an indictment of all police just one department with some unscrupulous players.

A good listen is Joe Kenda talking about why he retired. I really could relate.

I listen to 2-3 podcasts a day. Planet Money, Ted Radio Hour, Fresh Air, The Peoples' Pharmacy, Hidden Brain, Radio Lab, Invisiblia, 1A and a few more. Makes my walks and cleaning much more fun.
Michael Lewis has a new podcast "Against the Rules" I just subscribed yesterday.

Thanks for recommending The Dropout - it was outstanding. I listened to it while pruning perennials and doing other yard work and it made the time fly.

You're quite welcome. FYI, the HBO movie (The Inventor) that I mentioned in my earlier post was not as engaging as the podcast. It covered much of the same ground, but left out many important and interesting details. The only really compelling thing about it was that it gave a "face" to all the voices and people in the podcast.
