  • Science Vs (Science, Tech, Politics, & Media)
    “There are a lot of fads, blogs, and strong opinions, but then there’s SCIENCE. Science Vs is the show from Gimlet Media that finds out what’s fact, what’s not, and what’s somewhere in between. We do the hard work of sifting through all the science so you don’t have to. This season we tackle football concussions, heartbreak, 5G networks, sleep, free healthcare, police use of force, asteroids and more.”

    “Food intersects with our lives in more ways than we think. Food52’s Burnt Toast podcast chases those stories to give listeners perfect pieces of snackable dinner-party fodder – all inside of a commute’s time. In each episode, host Michael Harlan Turkell explores a different aspect of food culture and community, highlighting the often surprising past informing what we eat every day, and meeting some of the people shaping food’s present and future.”
  • Science Rules! with Bill Nye (Science & Technology)
    “Bill Nye is on a mission to change the world one voicemail at a time. Bill and science writer Corey S. Powell take your burning questions and put them to the world’s leading experts on just about every topic in the universe. Should you stop eating cheeseburgers to combat climate change? Could alien life be swimming inside the moons of Jupiter and Saturn? Does your pet parakeet learn to sing the way that you learned to speak? Bill, Corey, and their special guests will answer those questions and convince you that… science rules!”
  • Behind the Bastards (History)
    “There’s a reason the History Channel has produced hundreds of documentaries about Hitler but only a few about Dwight D. Eisenhower. Bad guys (and gals) are eternally fascinating. Behind the Bastards dives in past the Cliffs Notes of the worst humans in history and exposes the bizarre realities of their lives. Listeners will learn about the young adult novels that helped Hitler form his monstrous ideology, the found of Blackwater’s insane quest to build his own Air Force, the bizarre lives of the sons and daughters of dictators, and Saddam Hussein’s side career as a trashy romance novelist.”
