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


The Dollop, The Drop Out, Ram Dass Here and Now

Welcome back to our podcast review podcasts where we, your Castologists, review podcasts. Got it? This week Zane gives us history with a comedic twist courtesy of The Dollop, Liz gets back into potential true crime (no conviction yet, folks!) with The Drop Out and Patrick gets philosophical and thinky with Ram Dass Here and Now.

Liz Recommends - The Drop Out

Money. Romance. Tragedy. Deception. The story of Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos is an unbelievable tale of ambition and fame gone terribly wrong. How did the world’s youngest self-made female billionaire lose it all in the blink of an eye? How did the woman once heralded as “the next Steve Jobs” find herself facing criminal charges — to which she pleaded not guilty — and up to 20 years in jail? How did her technology, meant to revolutionize healthcare, potentially put millions of patients at risk? And how did so many smart people get it so wrong along the way? ABC News chief business, technology and economics correspondent Rebecca Jarvis, along with producers Taylor Dunn and Victoria Thompson, take listeners on a journey that includes a three-year-long investigation. You’ll hear exclusive interviews with former employees, investors, and patients, and for the first-time, the never-before-aired deposition testimony of Elizabeth Holmes, and those at the center of this story.

For both: Start from the start and listen to as many as you feel compelled to listen to.

Pat Recommends - Ram Dass Here and Now

Richard Alpert was a Harvard professor and a clinical psychologist before he was Ram Dass. I found the most compelling version of his story is told with the first episodes of this podcast. He is a spiritual teacher and author, and these podcasts are a great way to digest his teachings, old and new. The format usually consists of an introduction from Raghu Markus (a friend and student of Ram Dass') followed by a lecture from years ago. Occasionally Ram Dass will be present for an interview. I've always found this podcast helpful for un-muddling my head, a nice little respite from my usual subscriptions.

For Zane & Liz: I recommend you start with episode 1 and continue as long as you wish.

Zane Recommends - The Dollop

On the Dollop podcast history buff and comedian Dave Anthony tells a new story each week to comedian Gareth Reynolds (who nominally knows nothing about the story). The Dollop is a super-popular podcast that has pioneered its two person format! Fans of both comedy and history are drawn to the wild stories and quick improv of the comedian hosts. The Dollop regularly tours in both the US and Australia and these live episodes usually feature local comedians and stories.

For Pat: 300A - Donald Trump (Part One)

For Liz: 188 - The Domino's Pizza Story
