Podcasts To Listen To: Disgraceland - A True Crime & Music Mashup

Disgraceland Podcast

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.

The true crime genre in podcasting has exploded in recent years. It is a legitimate phenomenon with a staggering cross-section of different styles, approaches, and manners in which true crime podcast shows are produced.  

From principled investigative pieces like Murder On The Space Coast to raucous romps of criminality from our favorite rock stars on Disgraceland, there is a flavor of true crime out there for just about anyone with even the slightest pull towards the genre.

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.

Troubling Outlook

There is plenty to make us feel bleak and hopeless in regards to the future. Climate change seems to be a runaway train with extreme weather events and sea levels both on the rise.

The state of politics is an overstressed and polarized messed. The internet has been an incredible gift for distribution of content but the social media landscape can feel downright toxic at times.

What if there was another side of the story to be written about our future? A future that was steeped in hope and life-altering progress with technology serving as the catalyst for the awe-inspiring change.

Hostage By Parcast Debuts 2-Part John McCain P.O.W. Special

Parcast

Parcast has rapidly established themselves as a creative force and major player in the ever-expanding world of podcasting.  

One of the many things I appreciate about Parcast is that each show they put out has a similar style and brand, giving the entirety of their network a familiar feel stemming from their approach towards storytelling.

We all know by now that the true crime genre has essentially taken over the podcast-sphere with what feels like an infinitesimal amount of true crime shows. What makes the shows on Parcast unique is the network’s perfected proprietary blend, akin to Reeses melding peanut butter and chocolate, of professional narration coupled with the psychological, almost clinical, approach to covering the granular details of investigative sagas.

It is a creative formula that works tremendously for both entertaining and informing their listeners.

Podcasts To Listen To: The Dream

The Dream

A Stitcher Original Series Podcast

I would imagine that most people could relate to feeling some sort of sense that there is something better for them out there in the world.

At one time or another, most have probably felt the pull of an opportunity offering the promise of a purpose and an upgraded lifestyle if they just remained focused on the goal with positive intentions.

If cultivated in the right manner, these desires could be used to harness action towards a worthwhile pursuit in life. If left unchecked, these yearnings could be preyed upon and taken advantage of without the slightest hint of impropriety ever being revealed in the offering until it was too late and the damage was done.

The Dream is a brand new podcast offering hosted by award winning journalist Jane Marie that takes a hard, investigative look at multi-level marketing, a model of selling and distributing products peer to peer with a tiered sales recruiting component being the fulcrum of the entire operation.

Podcasts To Listen To: Words Matter

Words Matter Podcast

A Stalled Political System

Politics in the United States is beyond a hot mess and it has been for years. The car crash analogy is a fitting one: As painful and sad as the wreckage all appears to be I just can not turn away from looking.

On one hand, I am completely fatigued by the incessant churning of the 24-hour political news cycle while on the other hand I am routinely drawn into getting a daily fix of stories and analysis.

I will put this out there right up front, I am left-leaning, but I suspect like the majority of Americans I gravitate towards the middle.

While I am fully supportive of the social freedoms the Democrats espouse, I am disheartened by their lack of vision and incapability of voicing a cohesive message. In the face of our mounting federal debt, I am intrigued by fiscally conservative principles touted by traditional Republicans, but where are the supportive actions and policies? Bush exploded the debt while in office and the trickle down theory is a joke in practice with wealth disparity raging out of control.

Podcasts To Listen To: Bodies

Bodies Podcast

The Wonder Of Our Bodies

Our bodies, their functionality, and their intricate design are truly something to marvel at. Our bodies can also, unfortunately, veer off into dysfunctional physiological behavior, firing off discomforting or even bizarre outbreaks of symptoms at times.

Oftentimes, many of us ignore rashes, bumps, or other more alarming signals from our bodies in hopes that whatever the heck is causing the current malfunctioning will simply go away.

When we do finally find the time or get up the necessary courage to go see a doctor, we are often treated to a 5-minute crash course visit with an overworked and seemingly uninterested healthcare provider who quickly grabs for a prescription pad prior to even having an in-depth or probative conversation with us.

Podcasts To Listen To: SHAMEBOOTH

SHAMEBOOTH Podcast

Speak Your Shame

I first became consciously aware of shame when I was undertaking psychotherapy.

Prior to this discussion with my therapist, I had always known the word shame and had a cursory understanding of the emotion, but never quite possessed the self-awareness to grasp the burden it could impose upon our lives.

When initially discussing shame with my therapist she told me about Dr. Brene Brown, a research professor, and suggested I become familiar with her TED Talk on shame. It is one of the most viewed TED Talks ever and upon viewing the video I immediately felt why it resonates so deeply with people.

In her talk, Dr. Brown openly describes her own personal entanglement with shame and details how it can manifest within us. She also implores each and every one of us to live a more daring and vulnerable life.

Life On Mars?

Mars, also known as the Red Planet, has always created a certain level of interest and intrigue amongst the general public. Could there be signs of life out there? Will we someday, as a human race, step foot on planet Mars like we did the moon?

Beyond the curiosities of the general public, NASA has been keenly interested in Mars and has studied the great planet for a while now, having first launched robotics onto Mars decades ago to begin gathering data.

We know that the atmosphere of Mars would be lethal for humans to breathe in naturally. We know that the terrain is rocky, akin to a rough desert terrain. We know that temperatures can be unbearably cold. All these stated deterrents aside, NASA is indeed preparing to one day have a human presence on Mars.

Be it grand curiosity, or a last ditch failsafe against humanity’s tragic trashing of our own earth, the training and studies for Mars cohabitation are getting more comprehensive. Now, we in the general public have a first class ticket for a voyeuristic view into one such study.
