First up it's review time. What did we think of This is Love, Flash Forward and Making Sense with Sam Harris? Then we've more podcasts to bring to the table. Let's hear it for RadioLab, Serial and Ain't it Rich! Stay tuned to see what the team thinks of this crop of podcasts next week.
Liz Recommends - Serial
In case you've been living under a rock, Liz decided to recommend the worldwide podcasting phenomenon that is Serial. Most people got addicted to podcasts from this very series. The first series looks at the murder of Hae Min Lee and the subsequent conviction of her on-again off-again boyfriend Adnan Syed. Season two looks at Bowe Bergdhal, a man who was kept prisoner by the Taliban for five years, but all is not as it seems. The most recent season looks at the inner workings of a courthouse in Cleveland.
For both: Liz recommends starting at the very start of season one, where the obsession for most people began. Good luck not listening past the cliffhanger endings.
Pat Recommends - Radiolab https://www.wnycstudios.org/shows/radiolab
Radiolab is a highly stylized, well edited, and terribly compelling investigative program. Their stories range far and wide, with nary a common thread. Well maybe the thread could be something like 'Lost but not forgotten'.. or something. Stories you didn't know you wanted to know. It's good.
For Zane: Episode - UnErased episodes
For Liz: Episodes - Post No Evil
They're all good, really.
Zane Recommends - Ain't it Rich www.aintitrich.com
A fellow Brisbane podcast with strong opinions! Ain't it Rich is a podcast aiming to take down capitalism with comedy. Each week, hosts Mickey and Aria tell a story of excessive affluence to their comedian guests. It is funny and informative well researched with facts about important historical figures and events.
For Liz: Episode 43 - The Harlem Globetrotters (w/ Nick Carr)
For Pat: Episode 63 - Private Schools (w/ Sam Bowden & David Woodhead)
