Covid Has Truly Shown Us Things!
The podcast, IMHO, is god’s gift to the multitaskers of this world… I often listen while driving, walking, cooking, sewing, chilling, whatever. Plus, unlike a watching a video or scrolling through twitter, listening to a podcast is not antisocial, and can be enjoyed with other people.
Here are a few podcasts I’ve enjoyed during the Pandemic! Krista Tippet’s OnBeing is my all-time favourite channel, so many on the list are from there.
I’ll update this list periodically as a handy reference for myself and hopefully others who share my taste in podcasts—nature, farming, environmental sustainability, spiritual wellbeing, science, music, poetry, art, and the historical context of the societal messes we find ourselves in…incl. the cancer of racism and anti-Blackness whose time is now UP!
Ok – here goes…
- Michael McCarthy: Nature, Joy, and Human Becoming
- Isabel Wilkerson: This History is Long; This History Is Deep
- Resmaa Menakem: Notice the Rage; Notice the Silence
- Ocean Vuong:A Life Worthy of Our Breath
