  2. The best short fiction, handpicked by the best voice in podcasting. In every episode, host LeVar Burton (Roots, Reading Rainbow, Star Trek) invites you to take a break from your daily life, and dive into a great story. LeVar’s narration blends with gorgeous soundscapes to bring stories by Neil Gaiman, Haruki Murakami, Octavia Butler, Ray Bradbury and more to life. So, if you’re ready, let’s take a deep breath...
  3. Lore is a bi-weekly podcast (as well as a TV show and book series) about dark historical tales. Each episode explores the mysterious creatures, tragic events, and unusual places that fill the pages of history. Because sometimes the truth is more frightening than fiction.

  5. Insomnia? Mind racing at night? Worries keeping you up? Tune in for a bedtime story that lets you forget your problems and progressively gets more boring until you fall to sleep. So get in bed, press play, close your eyes, and drift off into dreamland.
  6. Ts&Zzz is a podcast to help you fall asleep by reading the most boring text on the internet; terms of service agreements, terms and conditions and privacy policies. We have all agreed to countless numbers of these contracts in our lives but have never actually read them and probably never will. Instead, we are putting them to use to help people get better sleep and maybe even learn something along the way.

  7. Our lives can be crazy, but you can take a break from it all with Wondery’s new series, Even the Rich, where co-hosts Brooke Siffrinn and Aricia Skidmore-Williams pull back the curtain and chat about someone else’s craziness for a change. They tell stories about some of the greatest family dynasties in history, from the Murdochs to the Royals to the Carters (Jay-Z and Beyoncé, that is). Because as Queen Elizabeth once said, “A good gossip is a wonderful tonic.”
  8. What is it like to be famous before you’re famous? What is it like to walk in the shoes of another person? Each episode of Imagined Life takes you on an immersive journey into the life of a world-famous person. It’ll be someone you may think you know, even admire -- or maybe the opposite. You’ll get clues to your identity along the way. But only in the final moments will you find out who “you” really are. So sit back, let go, and -- imagine your life, with our hosts, Oscar nominated Virginia Madsen and celebrated voice actor Robbie Daymond. From Wondery, the network behind Dirty John.
  9. Imagine being wrongfully convicted for a crime you didn't commit, or imagine your child's killer is still on the loose even though there's enough evidence for an arrest. I want to help shine light on the injustices of our judicial system. I delve into court documents, attend trials, and interview those close to the case to help me tell their stories.

  1. Creative Class

  2. We tell the weird and surprising and funny backstories around food and drink. The tales we haven’t all heard yet, the ones that have been lost, the under-told. This is not a recipe show. And this is not a show about celebrity chefs or what they like to eat. Proof goes beyond recipes and cooking to investigate the foods we love (tiki drinks) and don't love (the grain bowl); ask the big questions (where do food cravings come from?); and uncover the hidden backstories that feed your food-obsessed brain. Hosted by Bridget Lancaster. A production of America's Test Kitchen.
  3. A lovingly crafted podcast that reveals the stories behind the world's most recognizable and interesting sounds.
  4. Who Was Prince? is the ultimate look at the greatest and most mysterious musician of the modern era. Prince was a genius singer, songwriter, guitarist, and performer but how did he create so much music, what was he like as a person, what was his childhood like? This eight episode series is built on interviews with people who were close to him—people who played in his bands, managed his career, engineered his music, or dated him. We explore his multiple personalities, his love of basketball, his insane work ethic, his ability to play almost every instrument, his love of clothes, his turbulent childhood where he left his parents, his romantic life, his baby who died after a few days, and his tragic end. We hear stories about Prince and Liz Taylor, the Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Michael Jackson, and many more. This is a deep look inside the life of an unforgettable man. Who Was Prince? will be a podcast that’s available anywhere podcasts are streamed.
  5. It’s never been a better time to earn a living with your creativity. This show bridges the gap between art and business by talking to high-profile creators about the nitty gritty of building their creative career. We discuss the specific elements of their personality, style, or approach that have helped them thrive: elements like focus, vulnerability, revision, and constraints. Learn how these creators made a living with their art and you’ll feel more confident earning a living on your own terms too.
  6. Stories about people who break from best practices in their work. Each episode reveals why trusting their intuition or taking the unconventional path felt logical, instead of risky or rebellious. Remember: Finding best practices isn't the goal. Finding the best approach for you is. Hosted by Jay Acunzo (author, speaker, ex-Google, and creator of 10+ shows about creativity at work).
  7. Welcome to The Lonely Palette, the podcast that returns art history to the masses, one painting at a time. Each episode, host Tamar Avishai picks a painting du jour, interviews unsuspecting museum visitors in front of it, and then dives deeply into the object, the movement, the social context, and anything and everything else that will make it as neat to you as it is to her.

Fantasy worlds may be set in distant planets or parallel dimensions, but they are crafted here on Earth and on some level relate to our daily lives. Employing his years of experience in public radio, Eric brings a sophisticated, thoughtfully produced voice to the far-out and fantastical.

In Mouthpeace, the Bennetts invite listeners and guests into their professional and private lives to take on topics provocative and personal: from sitting out the national anthem to keeping their sex life fresh.

  6. Our 2016 wedding went viral because Jeff surprised Callie with puppies before the ceremony.⁣ Since then, life has been pretty rough. Getting fired from a dream job. Serious health scares. A best friends betrayal. A totaled car. Loss of one parent, two grandparents, and a pet. A miscarriage. We have really put 'for better or for worse' to the test the past few years. Through it all, we've learned and grown. We've managed to laugh more than we cry and we are excited about the future. We're grateful for everything ... even the rough stuff.⁣ And we are sharing all of this on our podcast. Despite how hard life is, something positive always shows up. Always. We started this show to remind ourselves (and you) of that. It's become our mission, and we would love to have you join us. A new episode every weekday morning, only 30 minutes long. We are authentic, funny, and love the community that has formed around our show. It would be an honor to have you join us.⁣ - Callie and Jeff
