Episode 3: Joel Comm Does Good Stuff
And that’s the story that the Be a Dick podcast tells. Each episode shares the tale of someone being a Dick to share and inspire good vibes, good ideas and good deeds.
On The Ledge
Episode six: pots
One of the great things about podcasting is how the medium allows us to embrace the niche. With that in mind, each week we try to highlight one podcast that might not be for everyone, but that’s an awesome show nonetheless.
Jane Perrone, gardening editor at The Guardian hosts On The Ledge, a podcast all about houseplants and indoor horticulture. And sure, a houseplant podcast might not sound like your cup of tea, but it’s Jane’s charming presentation that makes the show one that’s genuinely interesting- even if you never thought potted plants could be something you’re into.
The latest episode of On The Ledge is a fascinating (no really, it is) lesson in the containers we use to keep indoor plants in. Dr Catherine Horwood guests for a history lesson you didn’t know you needed.
Truth & Movies
#1: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2
Another awesome new show we’ve loved this week comes from Little White Lies and James Richardson.
Truth & Movies is a great audio extension of the long-running film magazine, which this week tackles Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, Lady Macbeth and Fast & Furious 8.
Alongside LWLies editors David Jenkins and Adam Woodward, James Richardson‘s new podcast is a movie review show with that manages to pull of in-depth movie discussion without taking itself too seriously. 5 5 5
