These are some of the GREAT podcasts that are in my ear (early 2021).
This podcast is hosted by my (real life) friend from NYC days, Sugi Ganeshananthan, and her fellow novelist/academic- Whitney Terrell. They discuss literature (past and present), interview (diverse) authors, and make connections to current events.
Hosted by journos Maria Hinojosa and Julio Ricardo Varela who go beyond mainstream news and have frank convos re: race, identity, politics, etc.
A conversation about politics hosted by Jon Favreau, Jon Lovett, Dan Pfeiffer and Tommy Vietor that breaks down the week’s news and helps people figure out what matters and how to help.
Hosted by feminists who love the Star Trek universe, but are not afraid to take a critical look at their favorite shows (incl. TOS, TNG, DS9, Voyager, Enterprise, and Discovery).
