  • Smart, insightful, besties are the best.-
    Love.
  • Nov 09, 2018-Bear Brook
    Full of great story telling, good production, and lots of cool crime science information.-
    Loved it.
  • Aug 12, 2018-Everything is Alive
    Smart, original, funny-
    I laughed out loud.
  • May 16, 2018-Late Night Whenever
    Funny, smart, sassy and wonderful.-
    Michelle Buteau is terrific and a welcome break from the too-many political podcasts I listen to.
  • Huge catalogue of interviews with writers.-
    I love to hear about the process of other writers and how they manage life as a writer, so I'm a fan.
  • Essential listening if you want to understand gerrymandering. I learned so much.-
    Top notch work.
  • Dec 21, 2017-The Nod
    Interesting, well-produced, talks about stuff I don't know.-
    As a white person living in a white white place I appreciate hearing the voices and ideas of Black people.
  • Nov 21, 2017-Pod Save the People
    This is how to get the news. From DeRay.-
    Excellent analysis from other than MSM white guys.
  • Good conversations.-
    The latest episode with Tommy talking to Jane Mayer is excellent! Everyone needs to know about Dark Money and here's a quick way to find out about Mayer's excellent book.
  • Fascinating and important stories.-
    I'm excited the second season is here, because I devoured the first. This is a very high quality podcast that tells essential stories in a gripping way. One of my favorites.
  • Aug 06, 2017-RISK!
    Yikes, these are wild stories!-
    The 12th version of the best of Risk was fascinating, though a bit uneven. The first couple of stories were great, then we had horrific, then kinky, then strange. This is definitely going on my list -- what a way to peer into lives so very different than my own.
  • Jul 04, 2017-Revisionist History
    Gladwell tells stories that need to be told, and heard! Listen.-
    I loved the first season and so far the second season isn't disappointing. You don't have to be a history buff to find this podcast fascinating. There's so much we learn from one point of view that has many others, so much we learn that's just plain wrong, so much we don't learn. Listen to this podcast and you'll discover new ways of thinking about our world.
  • Jun 28, 2017-The Lawfare Podcast
    No gimmicks, no advertisement, no bullshit. Insightful political analysis that gets deeper than most.-
    I'm a Benjamin Wittes fan so I think this podcast is terrific. Smart people talking about what matters on the political landscape.
  • This is for all of us who miss The Diane Rehm show. Same brilliance as always, talking about what matters.-
    As a huge fan of The Diane Rehm show, I was delighted to find her podcast. Now I can listen to her smart interviews and timely discussions. Only once a week, but it's better than never.
  • Jun 28, 2017-Radiolab
    Smart, interesting, always a surprise.-
    Radiolab was my first podcast many years ago and it's still a favorite. If you're new to podcasts, start here.
  • Jun 28, 2017-Rational Security
    Smart, insightful and good analysis-
    I learn something every time I listen.
  • Jun 28, 2017-Up First
    Decent morning update on what's happening.-
    I prefer The Daily so far, but this is a good second go-to on my morning run.
  • Jun 28, 2017-Kinky Konscience
    Real talk about race.-
    I've only listened to one episode so far, but I'll be back for more. Straight ahead talk about race, personal goals, and making it happen.
  • Jun 28, 2017-S-Town
    The story of a life, tenderly and honestly told by Brian Reed.-
    Brian Reed does an excellent job taking us into a time, place and life. The story was compelling but spread out a bit too much for me as it went on. There's a build up of mystery, which morphs into the overall story of John B. Mackelmore. It did make me tear up at times, but in the end I found the narrative arc a bit disappointing. Definitely worth a listen though, especially if you're up for a podcast that unfolds over numerous episodes. I also liked that all episodes were released at once.
  • Jun 28, 2017-Code Switch
    Shereen Marisol Meraji and Gene Demby do a masterful job of navigating issues of race, ethnicity, identity and politics. -
    I've been a listener for over a year now and I'm never disappointed. There are frequent guests to contribute to discussion of a broad range of topics, from black superheroes in comics to black horror films to the diaspora of Puerto Ricans (that episode made me cry). Anyone who cares about racism and better understanding black and brown lives in America should be listening to this podcast.
  • Jun 28, 2017-Lovett or Leave It
    Lovett and friends rant-
    There are only two episodes so far and kinks are still being worked out. Amusing enough to keep giving it a listen.
  • Jun 28, 2017-Death, Sex & Money
    Talking about what we think about. -
    It's worth listening to to hear Anna Sayles. Excellent conversations about real topics.
  • Jun 28, 2017-The Daily
    Brief episodes about current news.-
    Covers one or two topics in depth, often stories I haven't read in the paper so it helps me stay up to date on news other than the latest Trump antics.
  • Jun 28, 2017-Pod Save America
    Scary, funny, smart.-
    I generally already know everything Jon, Dan and Jon talk about because I'm a news junkie, but their addictive laughter at the crazy state of the world is a delight. Love it.
  • Excellent analysis, especially for data geeks. The Party Time series is also good. -
    Funny, smart, in-depth. Nate Silver was closest to calling Trump's win than any other poll analysts. The Party Time series, four podcasts looking different wings of the Rs and Ds is a good listen -- well, the final one anyway. But I liked it enough to go back and listen to more.
  • Jun 28, 2017-Bombshell
    These three women kick serious butt -- smart, knowledgable, sweet, tough, real and funny. -
    Great way to understand foreign policy issues beyond the headlines. Three women who work deep in the national security/military/foreign policy world, they deliver important information in a completely human and entertaining way. This is my new favorite podcast.
  • Jun 28, 2017-Vox's The Weeds
    Definitely weedy, and therefore great.-
    This podcast has more analysis than most political podcasts, is extremely smart and relevant.
  • Jun 28, 2017-Brevity Podcast
    If you like listening to writers talk about their craft, this is for you.-
    The interview with Andre Dubus III is excellent and Suzanne Roberts has lots of great tips and strategies to keep writing.
  • Jun 28, 2017-This American Life
    Stories on a theme.-
    Love it.
  • Jun 28, 2017-2 Dope Queens
    Phoebe and Jessica are funnier than many of the guests - but still a good time.-
    Makes me laugh and give me a view of life as a black woman.

    A few hundred years ago, the great thinkers of the Enlightenment began to declare that “all men are created equal.” Some of them said that notion should include women, too. Why did those feminists—most of them men, by the way—lose the fight? How did the patriarchy survive the Enlightenment? Co-hosts John Biewen and Celeste Headlee look into these questions, with historians Londa Schiebinger of Stanford and Toby Ditz of Johns Hopkins, and sociologist Lisa Wade of Occidental College. Music by Alex Weston, and by Evgueni and Sacha Galperine. Music and production help from Joe Augustine at Narrative Music.

He returns to the fictional working class town of North Bath for his most recent novel, Everybody's Fool. We sat down with him on the darkened stage of an eerily empty theater before an extended interview at the Capitol Center for the Arts in Concord, NH.

    A lot of us understand biological sex with a pretty fateful underpinning: if you’re born with XX chromosomes, you’re female; if you’re born with XY chromosomes, you’re male. But it turns out, our relationship to the opposite sex is more complicated than we think. This episode was reported by Molly Webster, and produced by Matt Kielty. With scoring, original composition and mixing by Matt Kielty and Alex Overington. Additional production by Rachael Cusick, and editing by Pat Walters. The “Ballad of Daniel Webster” and “Gonads” was written, performed and produced by Majel Connery and Alex Overington. Special thanks to Erica Todd, Andrew Sinclair, Robin Lovell-Badge, and Sarah S. Richardson. Plus, a big thank you to the musicians who gave us permission to use their work in this episode—composer Erik Friedlander, for "Frail as a Breeze, Part II," and musician Sam Prekop, whose work "A Geometric," from his album The Republic, is out on Thrill Jockey. Radiolab is supported in part by Science Sandbox, a Simons Foundation initiative dedicated to engaging everyone with the process of science. And the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, enhancing public understanding of science and technology in the modern world. More information about Sloan at www.sloan.org.
