So we here at the DMW like to keep in the know about the world. We feel that the best writing comes from a broad frame of reference. While some of us read book others of us have jobs or class and have adapted to the times through consuming podcasts. Not all podcasts are created equal. Here is my list of what I listen to when I want to feel a little bit more smug.
I start my day out with a little bit of the world.
-The Economist Radio
-Global News Podcast
Then delve into the world a little it more.
-What’s The Point
-Question of the Day
-Note to Self
Then hit up my quick tips.
-The Savvy Psychologist’s Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Mental Health
-Grammar Girl Quick and Dirty Tips for Better Writing
-Modern Manners Guy Quick and Dirty Tips for a More Polite Life
Then delve into the hard sciences.
-Science Magazine Podcast
Then TED it up.
-TED Radio Hour
Then the “social” sciences and other studies or whatever.
-Psychology in Everyday Life: The Psych Files
-Stuff You Missed in History Class
-the memory palace
Then wrap it up with some potpourri.
-Stuff To Blow Your Mind
-Stuff You Should Know
I’m always looking for more suggestions so if you have any let me know and I’ll give them a try. I’ll even let you know what I thought and decided.
