My Podcast Universe

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

-FiveThirtyEight Elections


Then delve into the world a little it more.

-Planet Money

-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

-60-Second Science

-Science Friday


Then TED it up.

-TEDTalks (audio)

-TED Radio Hour


Then the “social” sciences and other studies or whatever.


-Hidden Brain

-Psychology in Everyday Life: The Psych Files

-Freakonomics Radio

-Reply All

-Stuff You Missed in History Class

-the memory palace



Then wrap it up with some potpourri.

-Surprisingly Awesome

-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.
