That's Not Proper, Bad Batch, Believed

This week’s episode features a REVEAL! Who has replaced Patrick? We mean, OLD PATRICK. It’s NEW PATRICK! HA, you thought we’d tell you their name, but we didn’t. So ya’ll are gonna have to listen to find out who they are and what they are about. Speaking of listening, this week’s podcast recommendations are Bad Batch, Believed AND That’s Not Proper. Then it's on to the reviews from last week.

Liz Recommends - Bad Batch

Yes, yes we know, Liz loves her Wondery podcasts. Deal with it because this one is a good one. Like the other ones.

"Patients are offered a miracle cure, but instead they end up rushed to the hospital in critical condition. The race is on to track down what went wrong with several patients in Texas before more people get hurt. The trail leads to a stem cell company with a charismatic CEO, and to an entire multibillion dollar industry where greed and desperation collide. Laura Beil, the award-winning host and reporter of “Dr Death,” returns for this six-part investigative series from Wondery."

One of the most nuts things about this podcast is that Beil had a six hour interview and unrestricted access to one of the main characters in the story, Liveyon’s CEO John Kosolcharoen. This is a story where it's really hard to tell who the bad guy is, and your opinions are gonna flip several times.

For both: Start from the start.

Nick Recommends - Believed

How did Larry Nassar, an Olympic gymnastics doctor, get away with abusing hundreds of women and girls for two decades? Believed is an inside look at how a team of women won a conviction in one of the largest serial sexual abuse cases in U.S. history. Nick thinks you should listen to the whole thing, but also make sure you’re mentally prepared.

For both: Start from the start.

Zane Recommends - That's Not Proper!

This is a listener submission, and it is one of those submissions that took Zane about 5 minutes to latch on to. It was immediate and strong. That's Not Proper! is a podcast hosted and created by Cori Asuncion, a 46 year old mother of seven children who has decided to break the silence of her generation and has come to the realization that things aren't always what everyone says they are, being proper is subjective, social and spiritual awakening and finding humor in the chaos.

For Nick: Create Rebels with Intent

For Liz: Have We Normalized Rape Culture?
