With getting older I have found a newfound respect to just listening to people talk. Not just people talk, I am talking about talk radio. I mean talk radio has completely change the way I think and move. Podcasts have become a part of my life more than music. Music has been with me since I was a child. Now I live for podcast. I love to drive down the road and just listen and learn.
Something that I have found a new love for is NPR. I never understood what NPR really was at first. Within the last year I have found myself indulge into whatever they have to offer. I listen to them whenever I get a chance. The stories are lively and to hear people just talk about what is going on with the world without all that fanfare is great. I love that they just stick to the facts.
I also love the podcasts. They are all different, but they offer you so much that you never know that you needed. They go deep and you never feel uncomfortable with what they are saying. NPR has changed my live and I glade that I was able to find it.
I just got done listen to a new sort of podcast. I mean it is spin off from a podcast I listen to on occasion. This podcast is call Reveal PRX American Rehab, it is a deep dive into an episode they did on Reveal, that episode was the American rehab system. I must say I was not expecting everything that I learned, this show open my eyes to the rehab systems in America. There is so much that I cannot explain it here.
The podcast start talking about work-based rehab, and how did they get started. They also go into detail about how these types of rehabs have spread throughout the country over the years. They are on a search to see if this is legal. There is so many twists and turns which makes for a great podcast. There are only nine episodes, and they are not that long. It is great drive and listen podcast.
A podcast that I genuinely enjoy listening to is Unspooled, this is a podcast about movies. To be more specific the first season is about the top 100 movies on the AFI list. The podcast is hosted by Paul Scheer and Amy Nicholson. Paul is an actor and who loves movies, but like me has not seen that many of them, and Amy is a film critic, who has a unique eye for movies.
If you like movies you will love this podcast, I even introduce some of my friends to this podcast and they loved it. This is one of the few podcasts I listen to when I drive which is especially important to me. The second season is picking up now, but I am little behind, so I must catch up. Please listen to Unspooled. My favorite episodes are numbers 13,28,49, 63, and so many more.
This must be one of my favorite podcasts to listen to every week. If you are a fan of comedy and you like hearing people talk real life stuff, then listen to The Patdown. This is comedian Ms. Pat podcast, and she says whatever is on her mind. The things she says might offend you, but you must listen to them. She is just speaking real. I must say have of the things she says I know or have seen people that have went through the stuff that she has. This is one of those podcasts that I can listen to episodes more than once, and still laugh and learn something new. There is so much I can say about this podcast, but I think you should listen for yourself.
