4 GREAT PODCAST EPISODES

Friday, November 17th, 2017

4 podcasts

Admittedly, I am a podcast junkie!  I thought you might enjoy a few that I have especially loved in the last couple of weeks.

1. The Longest Shortest Time: Episode #141-That’s a Real Mother, Part 1: Governor Mom // The first in a series focused on working moms and the discrimination they face in the workplace.  Fascinating.

2. Oprah’s SuperSoul Conversations: Shonda Rhimes // Oprah and Shonda discuss the year of “yes” and how it changed Shonda’s life.

3.  Katie Couric: Pete Souza- Obama’s Photographer // An interview with Pete Souza, the official White House photographer for Obama’s 8 years in the White House.

4.  Fresh Air with Terry Gross: ‘Times’ Reporters Describe How a Paper Trail Helped Break the Weinstein Story //  The two female reporters discuss writing and researching the now infamous article about Harvey Weinstein.

I have linked all the Podcasts here so you could listen to these 4 episodes directly from this post.  I listen through the Podcast app on my iPhone.  Android users can listen too.

What podcasts do you love? I’m happy to share my favorites if you are interested.

ROOKIE POD CAST | WHERE IS JUNE?

My obsession for podcasts are not a secret!  I recently found Rookie and have enjoyed listening to the wide variety of creatives and artists in interviews.  However, I’m not their target audience.  It’s really for all of our amazing teens!

Rookie is the podcast created by the online magazine Rookie.  Self described as “an independently run online magazine and book series founded in 2011 by Editor-in-Chief Tavi Gevinson. We publish writing, photography, and other forms of artwork by and for teenagers (and their cohorts of any age!). Our contributors and readers are from all over the world.”

The online magazine seems to have a little something for every type of teen.  I love how the categories include comics, beauty, books and friendship.  Such an amazing platform and community for teens.  As a reader or a contributor- I bet it’s empowering to know a teen voice has power.  I find it refreshing that the issues and topics tackled in the podcast are complex.  It’s not condescending and it is apparent the producers believe teens to be intelligent and thoughtful human beings.  The podcasts are not cleaned up-meaning there is swearing and a lot of honesty!

After listening and a quick scan of the online site, Rookie tends to be geared toward females-but many of the topics would be interesting for our young men too.

Share this with a teen in your life or anyone trying to successful raise a teen {without losing her mind!}.
