A wonderful discussion between Michelle Alexander and Krista Tippett. It is sure to generate thoughtful dialogue whether that is internal or with a trusted friend.
Here are 2 voices that help me think about simplicity and the intention of my life.
If you are unaware, Mick Foley is a former pro-wrestler, and Tori Amos is an accomplished musician. Mick Foley talks with the host of one of my new favorite podcasts Edge of Sports with Dave Zirin about many things, but the guiding topic is RAINN - Rape Abuse Incest National Network.
I love this podcast, and it is not because I love sports. Most of the athletes (like Mr. Foley) I know almost nothing about. However, it is great to hear fantastic stories of athletes doing inspiring work around a host of important issues. Athletes using their intellect, passion, and sometimes fame to make a positive difference in our world.
The Black Panthers have been all over the news I am seeing. it seemed to start with Beyonce’s SuperBowl performance, then there was this podcast in anticipation of the upcoming documentary, and Ta-NehIsi Coates just wrote an article in The Atlantic about them as well. Well, Ta-Nehisi Coates’ Black Panther articles is actually about him writing the new comic book (which I’m excited about)!!!
I have been a long time listener of RadioLab. They have a wonderful mixture of storytelling that generally includes fun and interesting sound production. This episode is about debate club, which is something I have never really understood. After listening to this episode, I feel like a know enough to have a small appreciation for what it is and a small understanding of what is actually happening in a debate! Of course, I am sharing this episode because it addresses social justice issues.
I just found out about this podcast and am saddened that it appears to be finished. Although almost a month old, this is still a relevant and informative look at the Clinton and Sanders campaigns. I am looking forward to listening through the archives of episodes.
Every wonder how some people lose a lot of money in a telephone scam or how you ended up with that buyer's remorse? You will find some clues in this Planet Money.
Pretty awesome when you accidentally here about work people are doing in the distant land you happen to be visiting. I learned a lot about the informal labor market, which is a term I was unfamiliar with.
After getting my quick update on the political news in America, I was slowly getting bored with the promotion of the upcoming movie Life Animated. However, I stuck with it and both director Roger Ross Williams, and writer Ron Suskind had some very interesting thoughts to share.

An amazing podcast featuring the author Gary Younge about the making of Martin Luther King Jr's "I have a Dream" speech, the March on Washington, and how history has unfolded.
David Miliband speaks on the crisis in Syria and about the world's reaction to the refugees. It is one of the most balanced and comprehensive discussions I have heard.
99% Invisible is a design podcast out of Oakland, California. As you have probably guessed, it is a product of public radio! I like like it because they are 15-30 minute podcasts about what I see as a slice of 'Americana'.
Imagine if all the research we are relying on is based on statistical anomalies...
As a nurse and someone who has been taught to rely on research - this episode terrifies me.
