Oh, it's you! Welcome! We've got a wide range of interests with today's recommendations: think science, sex and weird musical stuff. Zane looks at a Luminary exclusive bursting with Hollywood and Broadway star power in Anthem: Homunculus. Liz has a new interest in dating podcasts thanks to her new podcast Ghosts of Boyfriends Past so she's grabbed Frank and Beans from the listener submissions list. And then Patrick looks at a super approachable hard science offering with Sean Carroll's Mindscape (while being very hungover). Then it's on to the reviews of our spooky Halloween ep last week.
Liz Recommends - Frank and Beans
Liz is getting into relationships and dating podcasts now that she's launched her own and Frank and Beans jumped out at her from the submissions pile. She loves the on-air chemistry of show hosts Beth and Brian, and the way they get the male, female perspective on some of the most important issues in the world of love and sex.
"Frank and Beans is a biweekly podcast that covers the ups and downs of dating, relationships and sex with a female and male perspective, making the world a better place to date."
For both: whatever topic takes your fancy.
Pat Recommends - Sean Carrol's Mindscape
Who's Sean Carrol you say? Only a theoretical physicist from the university of California. He specialises in quantum mechanics, cosnology, and gravity. He also hosts a rip roaring podcast. These episodes are typically an interview with a scientist or a science adjacent professional. It's good gear, get it in ya.
For Zane & Liz: It's all good
Zane Recommends - Anthem: Homunculous
The time has come and Zane is recommending a Luminary exclusive podcast. BUT it is a truly unique and possibly game-changing musical podcast written by John Cameron Mitchell who wrote and originated the the role of Hedwig & the Angry Inch. Anthem: Homunculous is the story of broke, failed artist Ceann Mackay (John Cameron Mitchell) as he launches an app-based “tumor telethon” to crowdfund his survival. Cynthia Erivo, Glenn Close, Nakhane and Patti LuPone co-star in a darkly hilarious musical retelling of Ceann's life as he realizes what’s killing him may be the very thing that saves us all.
For Pat & Liz: From the Start
