A Dude And A Bro Podcast Show: S-Town From Serial And This American Life

S-Town Podcast

S-Town podcast was an investigative series brought to us by the producers of Serial and This American Life that drew quite a buzz back around its release in 2017. Hosted by journalist Brian Reed, S-Town set out to investigate a potential murder and coverup in a small Alabama town, however, the focus of the story quickly shifts to center around the individual who initiated the contact with the producers and provided the tip of the possible murder story.

On this episode of A Dude And A Bro Podcast Show we revisit S-Town which might have garnered enough acclaim to be deemed a classic in the young and ever-growing world of podcasting but would that designation be justified for S-Town?

The Chernobyl Podcast

Defending The Great Bitter Land

“What is the cost of lies?”

That is the question that Valery Legasov, arguably the hero of the Chernobyl disaster, asks to himself on a tape-recorded recounting of the events right before he sadly dies by suicide. 

He did so two years to the day following the catastrophe that occurred in Pripyat Ukraine, in the commencing hours of April 26th, 1986. In fact, the title of the first episode is “1:23:45” which refers to the time in the morning that the core of reactor number four explodes inside of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant.

Segment #2: Podcasts We Are Currently Into

The Dude and the Bro come back for the second segment of the episode and each offer up something from the world of podcasting that has caught their attention this past week.

Tim suggests the new BBC World Service podcast titled 13 Minutes To The Moon, which chronicles the United States space program’s moon landing. This podcast series is out right in time to celebrate the 50th anniversary of this historic event.

Mike talks about the most recent episode of The Argument, which comes courtesy of the New York Times’ opinion team, and that episode featured democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang. The format of the interview was interesting with Ross Douthat, a staunch conservative, interviewing Yang and respectfully challenging him on certain positions.

Podcasts To Listen To: Whine Down With Jana Kramer

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.

Podcasts To Listen To: Extraterrestrial By Parcast

Alien Visitations

Are we humans alone in the universe? For me, this ranks as one of the greatest mysteries of life right alongside pondering what happens after we die.

There have been some brilliant podcast episodes and series that have explored these themes. Adam Frank, a biophysicist, spoke with rather an assuredness on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast that mathematical probabilities point to the chance that there is life out there somewhere in the cosmos.

The End Of The World with Josh Clark delved deep into the Fermi Paradox, which simply yet profoundly asks if there is such a great probability of life out there in the universe then where are all the aliens?


Extraterrestrial Podcast

There is a new offering from the world of podcasting, Extraterrestrial from Parcast, that is taking a constructive look at previously reported alien encounters and doing so in a narrative retelling of their tales.

Podcasts To Listen To: MarketSnacks Daily - Now Snacks Daily By Robinhood Snacks

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.

Podcasts To Listen To: Skimm This - Daily News Podcast

Information Overload

Broadcast news comes at us in a fast and furious pace these days on a 24-7 cycle. We are drinking from the proverbial firehose of information with much of the context and detail flying right beyond our faces.

There is also the ever-growing phenomena of hyper-partisan talking points and ego creeping into many of the shows on cable news outlets. These are shows often produced with talking heads shouting past each other with hyperbole and rhetoric.

Staying informed without getting sucked into a vortex of sensationalized stories or agenda driven editorial commentary can be quite the challenge. The world of podcasting, though, just got a brand new entry in Skimm This that is looking to be a daily resource for bite-sized, story-driven nuggets of news stripped of the fluff and filler that corrodes most traditional news outlets.
