Next City has put together their 7 recommended podcasts Urbanists should be listening to now. But we’ve expanded beyond urbanism and added a couple of extras that we think are worth checking out.
Next City has a nice little description of each of their selections in their article here. But here is a run down of the titles:
- The Uncertain Hour
- 99 Percent Invisible
- The Urbanist and Tall Stories
- Planet Money
- Third Wave Urbanism
- Candidate Confessional
And our additions:
- Direct Current: a podcast about energy and renewable energy out of the Department of Energy
- Past is Present : Historians put current events into the context of our history. because you know the old saying, those who ignore their past are doomed to repeat it
- Pod Save America: fair warning- this podcast is completely left leaning and biased towards progressive policies. But it is also fascinating (and sometimes validating), to hear current events discussed from the insider perspective of former White House staffers.
- Ellevate Network: Real women having real impact discuss their experiences, lessons learned and best practices. Serving as a virtual mentorship for women in the workforce.
- Bonfires of Social Enterprise: Basically exactly what it sounds like. Social Enterprise discussed and explored from every angle.
