Happy International Podcast Day! We’re so fortunate to have found so many truly wonderful podcasts over the years, aren’t we? And what makes them so wonderful, Diary? In the words of writer and artist Sherry Coben, “I long for authentic, earned laughter and tears. Comedy deepened with drama, drama leavened with comedy – that’s my thing. Meaning and silliness. Reflecting life as I see it.” (Check out her episode of 12 Days of Christmas - Regifted: A Partridge in a Pear Tree - A True Story About My Best Friend Paulette. You can find it under the MORE! pull-down menu. Scroll down to 12 Days of Christmas - Regifted.)
Today of all days, let’s also gush over these three podcasts, which give us such heartwarmth, such hopeful musing, and the occasional chilling speculation.
Here are the titles, and links to where you can hear them on podlink.
• Articles of Interest (A critically-acclaimed series about what we wear. Smart and touching. By Avery Trufelman)
• The Memory Palace (An anthology by Nate DiMeo. Thought-provoking, will tug at your heart-strings.)
• The Truth (Radiotopia / PRX presents short stories that are sometimes dark, sometimes funny, and always intriguing. So good!)
Well, Dear Diary, that’s all for now. May everyone’s notes on Life include peace and hope. And fun, obvs.
