About This List

Podcasts are unbelievably versatile. They provide daily, fact-based news, laugh-out-loud comedy, an escape into other worlds through audio drama, and so much more. Now more than ever, podcasts have been a great escape for me.
  1. FACTORIOUS is the trivia game for everyone!! Our host Matt Iseman (NBC's American Ninja Warrior) gives contestants the clues, the facts, and the first letter of the answer. All they have to do is figure it out. How will they do?? How will YOU do?? Come play with us and find out who will be... FACTORIOUS??!?

  2. A clever teenage journalist comically recounts the events that lead to a beloved member of her community tragically dying in a freak, plague-related accident the week before Passover. Think Sliding Doors in a modern orthodox North Jersey community.
  3. “Scam Goddess is a podcast dedicated to fraud and all those who practice it! Each week host Laci Mosley (aka Scam Goddess) keeps listeners up to date on current rackets, digs deep into the latest scams, and breaks down historic hoodwinks alongside some of your favorite comedians! It's like true crime only without all the death! True fun crime!”   
  4. Everything is Alive is an unscripted interview show in which all the subjects are inanimate objects. In each episode, a different thing tells us its life story--and everything it says is true.
  5. Private Parts Unknown (the podcast formerly known as Reality Bytes) is a comedy-sex-travel podcast uncovering stories of love & sexuality around the world. Best friends Courtney Kocak & Sofiya Alexandra bring you along as they traipse from country to country exploring sex, relationships, dating & different types of food poisoning. Private Parts Unknown is a proud member of Pleasure Podcasts. For network details, contact cameron@pleasurepodcasts.com.
  6. Counter Programming with Shira & Arielle is your new favorite coronavirus/COVID-19 distraction podcast. Join this duo as they embark on a quest to bring the world counter programming of all kinds. They'll focus on countertops (namely, they're doing a series on marble, granite, and quartz), time counters, calorie counters, counters of other kinds... Each episode will be a mix of comedy and fun facts that no one knew they ever needed.Shira and Arielle have been friends for 5 years. They met in Jackson, Mississippi during their first job post-college at the Institute of Southern Jewish Life (yes, there are Jews in Mississippi). They lived 4 doors from one another. Now that they're on opposite sides of the country and experiencing intense anxiety due to the constant barrage of bad news surrounding coronavirus, they decided they needed a distraction. This distraction comes in the form of a podcast. Shira and Arielle are bringing you... Counter Programming. Tune in for stories, useless (read v. important) facts, and so much more. Episodes will be released weekly and will be available wherever you get your podcasts.Follow us on Instagram: @counterprogrammingpodFollow Shira on Twitter: @shishimoskFollow Arielle on Twitter: @ariellethisandthatSend us pictures of your counter tops!
