PODCASTS! People love them! And those who don’t? Well, they just haven’t been enlightened yet. But how in the heck do you figure out which ones are worth listening to? Castology, that’s how. Each episode our Castologists Liz, Patrick and Zane will review some of the best (and sometimes not-so-best) … read more


Flash Forward, Making Sense with Sam Harris, and This is Love

Welcome to episode 7, where we rate the sex (podcasts) we had last week, and offer up new podcasts for review. Liz is following up sex with it's logical progression, luuuurve; she recommends This Is Love. Pat's podcast this week is Making Sense with Sam Harris (formerly Waking Up with Sam Harris). And Zane shows us a peek at what the future might hold with Flash Forward.

Liz Recommends - This Is Love

This is Love is a podcast made by the producers of the award-winning podcast Criminal - Phoebe Judge, Lauren Spohrer and Nadia Wilson. The show investigates life’s most persistent mystery: love. The six-episode series explores “stories of sacrifice, obsession, and the ways in which we bet everything on each other.” It's only been going for two seasons and each ep is max 20 mins long.

For both: Liz's favourite episodes are 5, 6, 7, 8 and 2. But it's a gorgeous almost anthropological short stories series so there is lots of gold to be had in all eps.

Pat Recommends - Making Sense With Sam Harris (Formerly Waking Up)

Sam Harris is a neuroscientist, author, philosopher, and one of the 'Four Horsemen of the Non-Apocalypse'. His work touches on a wide range of topics, including rationality, ethics, free will, neuroscience, meditation, philosophy of mind, politics, Islamism, terrorism, and artificial intelligence. These are the sorts of topics you can expect to be expounded upon with a variety of guests over a long format.

For Zane: Episode #78

For Liz: Episodes #144

And if you're hungry for more I can recommend #137, #138, #140, #143, #145, #147, #148

Zane Recommends - Flash Forward

This is a relatively new podcast-obsession for me. I am a huge fan of both science and science fiction and this podcasts is a great intersection of the two! Flash Forward is a podcast about the future. Each episode we take on a possible (or not so possible) future scenario — everything from the existence of artificial wombs, to what would happen if space pirates dragged a second moon to Earth. The show has been featured by Planet Money, Popular Science, WIRED, Note to Self, Gimlet, Indiewire and more. Apple Podcasts named Flash Forward one of the Best Podcasts of 2016. Flash Forward is produced and hosted by Rose Eveleth.

For Liz: "Portrait of the Artists As An Algorithm" (July 17)

For Pat: "Under the Sea" (July 31)
