KINDNESS: December 2021 podcast playlist

KINDNESS: December 2021 podcast playlist

It’s that time of year when gratitude and thinking of others is top of mind, so we thought a playlist all about Kindness would be a nice way to end the year. Not to mention the fact that we simply need more kindness in the world these days. As we’ll hear on this playlist, kindness doesn’t have to be a grand gesture; it can be as simple as offering a hug or teaching someone a cool card trick.


Food & Culture: November 2021 podcast playlist

Food & Culture: November 2021 podcast playlist

Food has a unique power. At its most fundamental, it nourishes the body. But, the true power of food is its link to culture. Food can spark a memory, comfort, and cure. A meal has the power to bring people together and tear them apart. It can be a source of joy or a source of shame. This playlist explores food and culture from the perspective of place, heritage, identity, language, and history.



Fairy Tales: September 2021 podcast playlist

Fairy Tales: September 2021 podcast playlist

Fairy tales have been impacting culture for centuries longer than social media.

Let’s take a step back and look at the stories historically and contextually—what were they trying to tell us, and what are they telling us now? Can they still offer us value, or should Snow White, Arielle, and the gang be cancelled?





Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder: May 2021 podcast playlist

Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder: May 2021 podcast playlist

Beauty is subjective…one person’s “beautiful” is another person’s “ugly.” Yet, as a society we continually strive for beauty. But, what does that mean exactly? How does society place value on certain types of beauty over others? Has social media and the proliferation of the “selfie” changed the way we understand beauty? This podcast playlist was curated in an effort to explore those questions and more. 


Mother Earth: April 2021 podcast playlist

Mother Earth: April 2021 podcast playlist

Climate change is the biggest threat facing humanity today, but too often us humans see ourselves as removed from the problem, the solutions, and “the environment” itself. This playlist was compiled with that in mind: the ways we think, talk, and advocate for climate stability are at least as important as energy technology is to […]


Women: March 2021 podcast playlist

Women: March 2021 podcast playlist

In honor of International Women’s Day (March 8), we’ve curated a playlist that highlights women who challenge the status quo. While there were so many angles we could have taken with this playlist, we decided to focus on more recent times rather than taking a deeply historical perspective. If you feel those are missing and want to hear more about the history of women’s rights, check out some of the bonus episodes below the main playlist.
