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: Dr. Angela Johnson, host of the Chasing the Mind podcast 

WHY THIS THEME?: Let’s face it: 2017 put a strain on some people’s mental health. So what is the prescription? Like many, I find comfort in making food, eating, and drinking. I like to gather around the table and hear stories from family, friends, and strangers. In the episodes chosen, food and drink are interwoven with great stories that inspire feelings of warmth and nostalgia. There are also episodes that push boundaries. Listen and learn, and may your soul be sated.
