I am a few days late, but Happy March. Man, did February go by fast!
99% of the day someone is talking into my ears. I listen to Radio Radio Shows, Music on Spotify, and plenty Podcasts. I am always sharing my favorite new stories, songs, and stories I’ve heard in podcasts with close friends & family, so I thought a fun blog post would be to share my favorite 4 Podcasts I’ve Recently Loved Binging.
I’ve written a brief description about each podcast, what I love about them, and my favorite episode.
4 Podcasts I’ve Loved Binging This Month
I was told about this podcast by my friend Hannah – when she told me it was crazy, she wasn’t kidding! I listened to season 1 in about 4 days and I frantically awaited Season 2’s release and when episodes leaked out I listened as soon as they downloaded to my phone. I’ve since shared it with 4 of my friends and they all have been completely shell shocked by it!
It explained so much that I didn’t know about all of the leggings, cleaning products, Tupperware, etc. people are selling on Facebook. I honestly had no idea!! Companies that I once didn’t think twice about now scare me. Jane Marie has taught me to really take a look into the brands and companies I am supporting with my purchases.
Season 1: is all about the mysterious world of MLMs and not only how they run, but also the tragic emotional problems they can cause. This show had me gasping and even in tears at certain moments.
Season 2: “…looks at a world just as mysterious as MLMs, but one whose promises are at times even more bombastic and unfathomable: WELLNESS. What is it? Who sells it? And will it bring you eternal happiness…and, perhaps, eternal life?”
This article on Vulture does a really great job explaining the show. 10/10 Give it a listen!
My Favorite Episode: Season 2, Episode 8;Your Call is Important to Us. This episode revealed something insane about the created of Young Living Essential Oils that I will never be able to “un-hear.”
I just started listening to this podcast and I’ve been binging it. I love learning about anything to do with the human brain and I like how this show is produced. The interviews, the music, and the background music is all sensational.
The host, Shankar Vedantam is NPR’s social science correspondent and he focuses on human behavior and the social sciences. Hidden Brain is among the most popular podcasts in the world and it is obvious after listening to just a few episodes why.
My favorite episode (as of today) is the episode from December 2, 2019; In The Heat Of The Moment. This episode discussed how certain situations cause humans to become strangers to ourselves. Shankar interviews several people from different walks of life and looks at the deep psychological mystery that occurs during intense moments. The episode description page says it best, “No matter how many times we discover the strangers living inside us, the next time always catches us by surprise.”
Yesterday I listened to one about Monkeys and one about why humans eat Hot Sauce. LOL such random topics, but seriously incredible and worth the listen!
“We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system.” – that’s the description for the show on Apple Podcasts.
It is an older podcast (produced in 2018), so I am a little late to the game, but I am still so happy I listened. Host, Laura Beil, shares the creepy and horrible story of Christopher Duntsch, a Texas surgeon who was convicted of malpractice after 31 of his patients were seriously injured and two of his patients died. I started it on my flight to NYC and finished it within 72 hours. It consists of 10 episodes, but trust me, they go by fast!
My Favorite Episode: Episode 9; One Great Man. It is a quick listen, just 29 minutes. Perfect for your morning commute!
Here is the description from the producers: “You may remember the woman in the infomercial about Dr. Duntsch who admiringly calls him “one great man” and claims “he’ll fix you.” Laura Beil wasn’t able to get in touch with her when she first reported the series. She guessed that the woman must have been a paid actress, or perhaps even the rare patient who had a good result with Dr. Duntsch. But then the woman in the video reached out after hearing her voice in ”Dr. Death.” And the real story turned out to be much stranger. In this special episode, we also hear from a juror who helped deliver the verdict in the trial of Christopher Duntsch.”
