Podcast of the Week: The Dream Team Tapes

Being a child of the 1990s, the 1992 Dream Team is a strong memory from my childhood, and I vividly remember watching the USA team absolutely dominate the rest of the world.

Podcast of the Week: Park Predators

Park Predators is a new crime podcast, but it’s not your typical crime podcast. It’s shot up the charts on Apple Podcasts, and I’ve really enjoyed the past few weeks of new episodes.

Podcast of the Week: Live! From Tomorrow

Live! From Tomorrow is a new musical comedy about innovation in tech and business. The unique aspect of it is that it’s a podcast. It’s produced in the style of a cast album, and it combines studio recordings with live performances and interviews. It contains five episodes over two acts. During the show, Matt Hooper launches a variety show from a local coffee shop.

Podcast of the Week: Treasure Island 2020

Kid-focused podcasts are a fun way to pass the time during summer travel, and one of my favorite new ones is Treasure Island 2020. Sam Payne, a host at BYUradio and producer of the show, called it a “reimagining” of Robert Louis Stevenson’s 1883 “Treasure Island.”

Podcast of the Week: California City

A few weeks ago, my family and I were coming home from vacation, so I was looking for a new podcast to enjoy during the six-hour drive home. Thankfully, I had an early release of California City to pass the time.

Podcast of the Week: Missing in Alaska

One of the aspects of Apple Podcasts that I really think is better than any other podcast app is the Browse section. I look at it on a weekly basis to see what’s new, trending, etc. I was recently looking at the top podcast list and came across Missing in Alaska.

I know that if you are reading the title, you are probably wondering why I might think 9to5Mac readers would like this show. I want to bring it up because of what it means to the podcast ecosystem.

Podcast of the Week: Commencement – Speeches For The Class of 2020

COVID–19 took graduation away from millions of high school and college seniors, and that really saddens me. I have fond memories of the final few weeks of high school finishing up my senior baseball season, senior prom, class night, and more. For these students, they won’t have those memories. They’ll have memories of social distancing and distance learning instead.

Podcast of the Week: Hope, Through History

Hope, Through History podcast is a recent addition to my subscription list. In a world dominated by fear at the moment, it provides some great context on everything we’re facing.

Podcast of the Week: You’re Wrong About

One of the benefits of technology is that we have the world’s library of information at our fingertips. There are ideas and information we all probably assume we have correct, but what if we don’t? That is why I love the podcast “You’re Wrong About.”

Podcast of the Week: Borrasca

QCODE is back with another show that is going to give them another hit. I just finished up episode one, and I can’t wait to hear more of the story. If you aren’t familiar with QCODE, they previously published shows like The Left Right Game and Blackout.

Podcast of the Week: Spectacular Failures

One of my favorite podcasts of 2019 was Spectacular Failures. I discovered it right after it was released, and I couldn’t wait for each episode to be released. My favorite episode was the one where they looked into Toys R Us. I had heard that Toys R Us was actually headed towards profitability, but the private equity firms that owned it shut it down and took plenty of money in the progress.

Podcast of the Week: Hi-Phi Nation by Slate

Slate has been releasing great podcasts for many years, and I recently discovered one of their existing shows that have added a new format. Hi-Phi Nation, while already in season four, has a new structure. This season they are focusing on a single theme: crime and punishment. Crime and punishment podcasts have become extremely popular, so this makes a lot of sense for Slate to use their unique skills to bring a fresh look to the show. Hi-Phi Nation is hosted by Barry Lam.

Podcast of the Week: The Electrek Podcast

This week’s podcast of the week is one of the podcasts on the 9to5 network. Over the past few years, I’ve been learning a lot about electric vehicles, and I have a Tesla Cybertruck on preorder. I told my wife recently that I’ve made my last non-EV car purchase, and we’re going all-electric for all future cars. One of the ways I’ve been learning about the industry is the Electrek Podcast.

Podcast of the Week: DUST Podcast and Flight 008

Fiction podcasts are taking up more and more of my podcast listening time. Thanks to shows like Blackout and Carrier, I’ve been opened up to an entirely new world of podcasts. I recently discovered a podcast called Dust that just started its second season called Flight 008.

Podcast of the Week: Robinhood Snacks

The last few weeks have certainly been a crazy time with the stock market. I am hoping we don’t see any more of the wild and crazy days where the market is down 1,000 points in an afternoon, but no one knows at this point. One thing to keep in mind is that even if the market is down, you’ve not lost anything until you sell. The average investor buys on emotion, so they will buy high and sell low. If you are able, now is the time to invest in the market because everything is ‘on sale.’ This week, my podcast of the week is Robinhood Snacks.

Podcast of the Week: TWIML AI Podcast

During the COVID–19 pandemic, I decided that I wanted to use the time at home to invest in myself. One of the things I was challenged by in a recent episode of Business Casual was when Mark Cuban discussed the role of Artificial Intelligence in the future and recommended some tools to learn more. He mentioned some Coursera courses, so I am currently working my way through some of their AI training, but he also mentioned an AI-focused podcast called the TWIML AI Podcast that I added to my podcast subscription list.

Podcast of the Week: Our Plague Year

There have been countless podcasts related to the COVID–19 pandemic and Apple even had a featured Apple Podcasts category related to shows about it. This week, I want to introduce you to a podcast about emotion and how COVID–19 is affecting us. This week, my new recommendation for you is ’Our Plague Year’.
