Ear Hustle Podcast Review: A Podcast About Prison By Actual Prisoners

Ear Hustle The Podcast

Your Invitation To Prison

Ear Hustle is prison slang for eavesdropping. Ear Hustle is also the slick name of a groundbreaking podcast that is co-produced and co-hosted by inmates Antwan Williams and Earlonne Woods deep within the constricted walls of San Quentin prison.

This groundbreaking show is an invitation for an intimate encounter with a world that is often dramatized and documented on television and in movies but perhaps remains misunderstood.

Ear Hustle has come to life as part of the Radiotopia podcast network and through a partnership with co-producer and co-host Nigel Poor, a Bay Area visual artist who volunteers at the prison.

Whine Down With Jana Kramer

Jana Kramer is a singer, actress, mother, wife, and now a host of one of the most honest and soul-bearing podcast shows I have ever listened to.

Within minutes of the start of the show, Kramer opens up and shares about her love addiction and a previous one-week marriage to a guy who was 14 years her age who also used to be married to Christina Applegate.

The admissions were flying fast and furiously at the onset of the show and never seemed to let up one bit in this debut podcast episode through iHeart Radio.

Trust issues in the marriage, fantasies of being divorced and alone, her husband’s lack of sexual proclivity and her walking home from couples counseling sessions were all bandied about at a staggering pace.

Murder On The Space Coast - A True Crime Podcast Review

Murder On The Space Coast

When disclaimers are announced at the onset of a show warning the viewer or listener that the proceeding material could be unsuitable for sensitive audiences I quite often pay little attention to the forewarning.

Never has a disclaimer been more fitting and never should anyone have to heed these words with such caution as when entering the dark, disturbing, yet highly captivating world of Murder On The Space Coast.

The Top 10 Ketogenic Diet Videos By Dr. Eric Berg

The ketogenic diet has been exploding in popularity lately. Initially designed decades ago as a dietary, therapeutic agent to combat epileptic seizures, it has more recently been adopted as a favored means to shed pounds, gain energy, and boost mental clarity.

The ketogenic diet is basically a diet composed of shifting around your macronutrient intake to favor fats, restrict carbs, and have a moderate amount of protein. When attempting to eat within this basic construct of the ketogenic lifestyle, challenges can and do arise.

There can be confusion on which of the three macronutrients is most important to focus on for success, in addition to encountering some common ketogenic pitfalls, like experiencing a foggy brain.

The Most Downloaded Podcast Ever: The Adam Carolla Show

The Adam Carolla Show 

My Introduction To Podcasts

I got my first Android phone in the summer of 2008 but did not make immediate use of all the newfound technology that was now within my hands reach. During my work days, I would leave my sterile office environment promptly at 1:00 pm like clockwork but still opted to grab my sporty AM/FM radio with the armband for joggers and tried to get in as many steps as the 45-minute break would allow.  

I would listen to any non-commercial content that my AM tuner could pick up like NPR, sports talk, political discussions, and yes, even some weird guy broadcasting from the public radio tower a few miles away.

The walking and the thirst for something entertaining to listen to both served as reprieves from the mundane nature of the 9-5 grind. That was until I lost my job due to the looming financial meltdown…

Introducing Podcasts: Pull Up With CJ McCollum - NBA Star & Podcast Co-Host

Pull Up With CJ McCollum

Our Limited Access to Athletes

Athletes mainly communicate to the masses through the press. They often stand in their locker room or in front of a podium answering questions and offering sound bites, typically in a mundane manner and often relying on cliches to get by.

Athletes tend to be guarded and consciously strive to not offend teammates or coaches, alienate fans, or jeopardize sponsorships. Our access to athletes outside of their arena of play tends to remain of a highly-limited and sanitized nature.

While social media gave the promise of direct connection with personas and stars, it is often through a limited number of characters or even worse, it is scripted and pushed out by a management or public relations firm.

The Promising Medium Of Podcasts

Now enter podcasts, a medium that is long-form and unfettered by default, allowing for a type of extended glimpse into the world of athletes seldom enjoyed by fans up to this point in the history of sports.

Pull Up with CJ McCollum is such a podcast, offering access to the thoughts and expressions of one of the NBA’s bright, young stars, who also happens to have a degree in journalism.
