Hysteria Podcast From Crooked Media
What Is Hysteria?
Hysteria is defined in the dictionary as “exaggerated or uncontrollable emotion or excitement, especially amongst a group of people”. Given this textbook definition, Hysteria is also the perfect choice of name for a brand new podcast offering from Crooked Media.
Hysteria, the podcast, is hosted by Erin Ryan and co-hosted by rotating sets of women in respective bi-coastal groupings. They are comedians, filmmakers, advocates and more and they tackle today’s most pressing issues for women in a raucous yet highly-informed manner. Read More
MarketSnacks Daily Podcast
Business turns on disruptors, groundbreakers, and innovators. The financial markets seem to constantly glow red hot with a buzz and energy equal to the staggering sums of money exchanging hands from bell to bell.
So with all these flashy descriptors surrounding business and investing why does the media coverage seem to be relegated to the old guard, stodgy personas like Duke & Duke straight out of the movie Trading Places.
Or on the other end of the spectrum, you have egomaniacs screaming full-throated on cable television about their brilliance related to options trading, a specific type of investing I will most likely never employ in my financial strategies.
If you agree that most content related to business and investing are not befitting of the highly intriguing subject matter they attempt to cover nor are they delivered for the new media-driven times we live in, enter our savior, the MarketSnacks Daily podcast show. Read More
The Science Of Happiness Podcast
A Growing Discontent
Happiness is an elusive and at times perplexing emotion. Babies seem to be born into a natural state of bliss, pure happiness, but over time life experience tends to dampen this joy. We then spend much of our adulthood desperately seeking to recapture what was once an innate emotional state.
In today’s day and age, we have never been more at risk of limiting our own happiness due to the lifestyles and manners in which we live. Cell phones, a widening disconnection from nature, lack of movement, and an ever-growing dissatisfaction with careers are all key detractors within current society that have pushed happiness far off the map for many. For some, experiencing recurring happiness is nothing more than a wishful fantasy.
What if happiness could be cultivated and achieved by undertaking simple routines and practices that were scientifically backed? That is the crux of an entertaining and informative new podcast, aptly titled The Science Of Happiness. Read More
The Kennedy Name
The Kennedy name is one of the most iconic and storied family names in all of American history. Just hearing the name stirs images of patriotism, unrivaled leadership in the face of global crisis, and compassion for all American citizens across the socioeconomic divide.
Just as quickly, though, thoughts of the Kennedy name can turn to the more tragic and darker side of the family as well. Unparalleled suffering from the loss of young lives, rumors of womanizing and excessive alcohol consumption, and of course two assassinations, both within a decades time, that forever changed the soul of America.

Our Beloved Musical Heroes
Rock and roll, through the wild personas that forged its musical landscape, has certainly had its fair share of dark and devious brush ups with the law over its storied history.
We as a society seem to revel in the legends of our rock heroes flirting with the occult, going head first into the abyss of drugs and alcohol, and even getting embroiled in alleged murders.
True crime has exploded for podcasts in recent history and Disgraceland is a new venture that adds a unique twist to the genre by focusing on crimes and stories that involve legends from the music industry. It is a brilliant twist that binds together two wildly passionate fan bases, true crime, and music, that are sure to be equally swept up by this unique mashup. Read More
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. Read More
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. Read More
