Here are three shows I listened to and enjoyed in 2014 (and continue to listen to into 2015).
I've appeared on Ashley's show, which is about the experiences of women in the workplace, twice. In another life I was also responsible for one of its corporate sponsorships. That's how much I'm into the work Ashley is doing with this.
Episodes average a perfect-for-my-commute 20 minutes. [Bonus: there's also a Broad Experience newsletter]
Here's an excellent recent episode, on the (slow) pace of progress and the important of paternity leave.
I met Meredith at BinderCon NYC. She is warm, funny, thoughtful, provactive - all excellent traits in a podcast host.
TLDR's pitch is "short, surprising stories about the internet." Episodes range from 5 to 15 minutes.
This episode, about the rabid (and demanding) fans of astrologer Susan Miller, is a good taste of the show's style and voice.
Kaitlin Prest's show is smart and sexy as hell and decidedly NSFW (or possibly your commute, if you blush easily).
Here's the show's official description:
The things you whisper. The things you do in the dark...or light. The things you feel but you don’t know how to name. This is a radio show about all of those things. It’s about the triumphs and the terrors of human intimacy, the bliss and banality of being in love and the wild diversity of the human heart. Part of the amazing Radiotopia Network by PRX.
And this is a recent episode, titled "Firsts".
