What I’m Listening To Right Now

Do you listen to podcasts? I’m a little addicted these days, so I thought I’d share what’s caught my attention. If you listen to anything similar to what’s I’ve listed below, please feel free to share in the comments. Click on the title of each podcast to go to its main hosting page.

In The Dark – This podcast walks us through what happened over the 27-year search for Jacob Wetterling that, as you probably know, only recently came to an end with the confession of Danny Heinrich. I get chills every time I listen to an episode, and this one hits so close to home since it happened here in Minnesota. Naturally, I recommend you start from the beginning.

Mortified – I got hooked on Mortified when a friend recommend I watch the documentary on Netflix. Then they brought the live show to the Twin Cities and I was selected as a performer which was a fun and crazy experience. One of the women who performed with me ended up on the Sex by Numbers podcast episode; she used a scale from 1-11 to keep track of how far she went with guys. If you’re a Harry Potter fan, I also highly recommend this episode where a woman reads the homoerotic Harry Potter fan fiction she wrote when she was 12. The podcasts are always hilarious, and they’re a great reminder of how silly we are when we’re young. 

The Science of Social Media – Buffer launched this podcast in September and I’m hooked. Their first episode featured John Yembrick **OF NASA.** Even if you’re not a big social media person, listening to how NASA runs social media is pretty cool, in my opinion. I’ve found takeaways in every episode, and they run 20-35 minutes long so they’re quite manageable to fit into my schedule.

The Utah Foodie – I connected with Amanda Rock on twitter through #VeganFoodChat, and she guest hosted an episode of The Utah Foodie where she got to welcome 3 guests on to talk about the vegan food scene in Salt Lake City, UT. I’ve never been to SLC but through talking with her online and after listening to this episode, I know I need to make the trek out there soon.

Which Side – The world of veganism includes an endless variety of viewpoints, and the Which Side podcast lines up a great variety of guests. The most recent episode that I listened to featured Eric Day who produced the film Vegan: Everyday Stories. I was fortunate enough to attend a screening of the film when I was in Portland this summer, and I enjoyed getting a more in depth look at one of the people who made it happen. Thanks to my friend Wayne for recommending it!

At The Gates – Friend and fellow blogger Tony is a baseball enthusiast, and he’ll arrive at the gates of a baseball park ridiculously early and record a short podcast about what’s currently happening in baseball, thoughts on the upcoming game, along with some random things thrown in for good measure. I’m not a big sports person these days, but his show is a quick and easy way to get caught up on what’s happening in baseball. I may have even sponsored this episode and was a guest for a Minnesota Lynx playoff game episode.

Focus on Customer Service – Dan Gingiss and Dan Moriarty find guests by having others nominate guests. Each one has offered unique and intriguing perspectives on how they provide customer service via social media. This is the biggest part of my job with The Herbivorous Butcher, so this one’s right up my alley. They even interviewed Jennifer Polzai from the TSA who talked about how they’re using twitter and Facebook to do everything from answer questions about what passengers can carry onto flights to reuniting passengers with items they left behind at checkpoints. 

Social Media Boombox – My friend Rachel of MNCommunity chatted with Mykl about all things Instagram on this episode. Both of us run Instagram accounts with lots of followers who are highly engaged, so it was fun to hear her thoughts on Instagram and how they run their feed. If you’re an avid Instagram user, make sure to put this on your list!

Thanks for reading, and I hope I’ve perhaps sparked an interest in you about checking out an episode or two.
