You can check out some podcast recommendations on Concentricity FM to see some shows worth subscribing to, but to supplement that, here are some notable episodes I've listened to in November 2017.

ALSO - September / October mark the launch of a new podcast I am producing called United? We Pray - take a listen!

Planet Money

Episode 803 - Nudge, Nudge, Nobel  |  11.01.17  |  Website  |  Overcast
Great, typically succinct and engaging episode of Planet Money looking at the origin of Behavioral Economics. "Why do smart people make dumb decisions? Figuring that out won Richard Thaler a Nobel Prize."


99% Invisible

Episode 282 - Oyster-tecture  |  10.31.17  |  Website  |  Overcast

You will never go wrong listening to the fascinating subjects 99% Invisible comes up with. Like, this one, on the naturally occurring wonder that is oyster architecture, and the impact on New York City.


Good One

Why Thor: Ragnorok Is So Damn Funny  |  11.06.17  |  Website  |  Overcast
I thought the new Marvel movie Thor: Ragnorok was great, and hilarious. On this comedy podcast, "Jesse David Fox talks to Taika Waititi about making Thor: Ragnorak and how a $200 million budget couldn’t stop him from embracing his inner six-year-old."


Ask Pastor John

Episode 1118 - Am I Wrong to Prepare for a Nuclear Doomsday? |  11.09.17  |  Website  |  Overcast
The description: "Under the threat of nuclear war, we could easily start preparing for the worst by stocking up on food and building a bomb shelter. But should we?" This was helpful to think through as I've always been somewhat puzzled by the way some Christians are seemingly driven by fear and self-protection in scenarios like this.


SAWBONES

Soda  |  10.27.17  |  Website  |  Overcast
This week on Sawbones, Dr. Sydnee and Justin visit the home of Coca-Cola to recount the history of medicinal soda pop and try to finally solve the age-old dispute of Coke vs. Brad’s Drink.
