About This List

Earlier this week, we asked our followers on Twitter and Facebook to recommend some of their must listen podcasts. We got a ton of fantastic recommendations and distilled it down to this list of 10 awesome podcasts to start listening to this week! Included in this list are stories pull at your heart string, funny pop culture breakdowns, sound rich audio drama, theme park fandoms, and more!
  1. Hosted by Laura Cathcart Robbins, a writer and a recovery thriver and survivor, Laura found herself in an all too familiar position. In September 2018, she was the only black woman in the room at Brave Magic, a famed writer’s retreat. After it was over, she wrote about her “only one” experience in The Huffington Post and comments started flooding into her DM. These comments were from people from all races, ethnicities, creeds, and nationalities who had felt “othered”. Laura beautifully interviews a person about their Only One story each episode and addresses as many of those DM’s as possible in the process. In this podcast, you’ll hear raw, vulnerable accounts from people who are, like most of us, just eager to connect. Our hope is that The Only One In The Room will inspire a change of perspective in how we all see and hear each other’s stories. We want you think twice before judging the person standing next to you at a party, in the pick-up line at school or in a crowded subway car. This is a podcast for anyone who has ever felt alone in a room full of people – which is to say, that this podcast is for everyone.
  2. We know their names and we know their music but do you know all the rest? Earfloss: a music history podcast is a biweekly podcast that takes a deep dive into the history of popular musicians . From the past artists who were responsible for the direction of music to current and relevant musicians, each episode looks at a different artist to take a glance at the rise and sometimes fall of the world's most talented musicians

  6. BiCurean takes typically combative topics and teaches them to play nice. Our view is that the mainstream reactionary rhetoric divides us and only helps those invested in the status quo.

Erik and Aicila are looking for the "BiCurean Moment" a point where contradictions meet.
