Who are you and what do you do?
What podcasts do you listen to?
I love Julie Klausner’s How Was Your Week?. It’s very conversational, she’s a great interviewer, and she talks to interesting people that you normally wouldn’t have access to. And I’m not just saying that because I was a guest on the show!
The Dinner Party Download makes me feel like I know a little bit about a lot of stuff, and I like the format.
I look forward to Pop Culture Happy Hour every week—they have good conversations about things relevant to my interests, and it reminds me to pull my face out of the intensely academic books I am buried in most of the time.
Snap Judgement is a great storytelling podcast that I found last year.
The tagline for The Truth is “movies for your ears,” and that’s completely accurate. My husband turned me on to this one; it’s storytelling with acting, but way more intense, but also much more interesting, and I’m greedy for them to start producing it once a week (instead of bi-monthly).
I listen to America’s Test Kitchen because I like their weird facts about food and good tips for kitchen mishaps, but I get SO WORKED UP sometimes because Christopher Kimball can be really rude—he talks all over Bridget Lancaster, and sometimes I feel like he doesn’t even like his co-hosts. I calm down by switching over to The Splendid Table, which is like sitting in the kitchen with your great aunt while she tells you stories about her most decadent but lively dinner parties.
Emily Gordon and Kumail Nanjiani’s The Indoor Kids is the only podcast that transports me back in time to my nerdy youth, where I spent most of my life waiting for my brother to give up the remote so I could play Marble Madness.
How do you listen to podcasts?
With boring ol’ iTunes if on my computer, and the dumb podcast app that Apple forced everyone to use. I generally listen to them on the bus on my way to school, when I go out for walks, or when I’m cleaning my house. Are there other options for listening?! Someone save me.
