How EarBuds Podcast Collective works:
Each week, a theme is chosen by one of our curators. That curator finds 5 podcast episodes (from anywhere!) to go along with that theme. Listen to these podcasts by clicking on the links above, through the RadioPublic app, or you can find (most of) them on your favorite podcast app (iTunes, Stitcher, Overcast…)
PODCAST CURATOR’S NAME: Erik Jones, creator and brain behind the Hurt Your Brain newsletter.
WHY THIS THEME?: Science is so much more approachable and fun when it is told as a story. Here are some of my all-time favorite science-focused episodes that blew my mind and taught me some really interesting things in the process.
MONDAY EPISODE (10/2): Radiolab – Colors – 69 minutes
TUESDAY EPISODE (10/3): Cosmic Vertigo – Black Holes Don’t Suck – 31 minutes
WEDNESDAY EPISODE (10/4): Undiscovered – Kurt Vonnegut and the Rainmakers – 31 minutes
THURSDAY EPISODE (10/5): Science Solved It – Don’t be Alarmed, but the Rocks are Crawling – 23 minutes
SHAMELESS PROMO: If you want a weekly dose of science-y and generally non-fiction podcast recommendations (and totally amateur podcast fan art), check out my weekly newsletter.
CROWD-SOURCING QUESTION: What book do you love telling people about? Tell me about it!
