Back in October I recommended 5 podcasts, today I’m back with 5 more podcasts you should listen to.
If you’re a fan of crime related podcasts then definitely check out Breakdown from The Atlanta Journal –Constitution. Legal reporter Bill Rankin explores the case of Justin Chapman, who was convicted of murder and sentenced to life in prison. His lawyers say they have discovered new evidence and Chapman is innocent. But is he?
In Sickness + In Health
In Sickness + In Health is a show about “living with chronic illness, disability, medical traumas, and everyday human health struggles”. Each episode Cara Gael interviews someone about their life and how it is affected by illness or illnesses they have. The shows cover everything from activism to advocacy to getting a diagnosis to educating others about rare and “invisible” illness and reducing stigma.
Limetown is a fictional podcast. It follows journalist Lia Haddock as she investigates the disappearance of 300 people, from a small town in Tennessee, ten years ago. But all is not what it seems. Lia must track down survivors and attempt to unravel the mystery.
Created by Mitra Kaboli and Kaitlin Prest The Heart is part of the Radiotopia network. The show deals with intimacy, sex, sexuality, gender, love, humanity and everything in between. Each episode is brilliantly produced and sound design plays as big a role as the intimate stories being told.
This Is Actually Happening
This Is Actually Happening looks at the moment in people’s lives when everything changes. What would happen if you were to wake up in a morgue? What would you do if a family member went missing? What if oral sex triggered a near death experience? These first person narratives are fascinating, thought provoking and often times heart-breaking.
