Someone mentioned making a podcast thread the other day, so here it is.
Currently I am listening to Against the Rules
From the website:
Journalist and bestselling author Michael Lewis (Liar’s Poker, Moneyball) takes a searing look at what’s happened to fairness—in financial markets, newsrooms, basketball games, courts of law, and much more. And he asks what’s happening to a world where everyone loves to hate the referee.
This podcast is the type that bounces from goofy to serious and is one of the more thought provoking and timely podcasts I’ve heard in a while. I can’t stop listening to it right now.
Another that I really enjoyed was More Perfect’s 27 The Most Perfect Album
More Perfect description:
Supreme Court decisions shape everything from marriage and money to public safety and sex. We know these are very important decisions we should all pay attention to – but they often feel untouchable and even unknowable. Radiolab 's first ever spin-off series, More Perfect , connects you to the decisions made inside the court’s hallowed halls, and explains what those rulings mean for “we the people” who exist far from the bench. More Perfect bypasses the wonkiness and tells stories behind some of the court’s biggest rulings.
The mini-series 27: The Most Perfect Album is a project which tells stories about each of the constitutional amendments and pairs each amendment with a musical artist who wrote a song to match the ideas of the amendment. Definitely a fun listen and probably even something a social studies teacher could tap into for their classroom use!
With summer approaching my daily commute (and thus my podcast time) is coming to an end, but I would love to hear what others are listening to right now!
