WELL-BEING: May 2022 podcast playlist

What is well-being and how do we achieve it? Well-being is a state of being, while happiness is a fleeting emotion. This podcast playlist explores flourishing, stoicism, how we can approach well-being without being misguided by the wellness industry’s nefarious marketing tactics, and the ways government can encourage well-being over productivity.

DEMOCRACY: April 2022 podcast playlist

Democracy is at a crossroads right now. The world’s largest autocracies are throwing their weight around and placing bets that the demise of democracy is on the horizon. How did we get here and what can we do about it?

OUR STUFF: March 2022 podcast playlist

If you look around your space right now, you are likely to be surrounded by SO. MUCH. STUFF. What is it about capitalism, materialism, and consumerism that compels us to keep acquiring more things, most of which—let’s be honest—we don’t really need? These episodes explore that question and proposes a few ways forward, including minimalism and the repair economy.

Bonus podcast playlist: CELEBRITY

What is it about celebrity and fame that captivates us? Imagining them as regular humans who experience the same things as we do is simultaneously fascinating to consider and impossible to believe. This playlist covers the theme of celebrity from a variety of angles: from the outlandish stories to a discussion of the classism that […]

LOVE, RECONSTRUCTED: February 2022 podcast playlist https://podcastbrunchclub.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/02/Love-Reconstructed-with-bonus.png

LOVE, RECONSTRUCTED: February 2022 podcast playlist

We often view love, be it ours or others, through the constructs of society. This playlist challenges that notion. It’s an ode to defining love in the image of who we are as people, and not how society wants us love.

DRUG POLICY: January 2022 podcast playlist https://podcastbrunchclub.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/12/Drug-policy.png

DRUG POLICY: January 2022 podcast playlist

Every day it seems like there is a new conversation happening around drugs and policy: legalization, decriminalization, harm reduction, etc. All sorts of previously illegal drugs, from cannabis to psychedelics, are being legalized for recreational and medical use. This month’s podcast playlist explores these trends and will undoubtedly lead to some interesting conversations about the pros and cons.

KINDNESS: December 2021 podcast playlist https://podcastbrunchclub.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/Kindness.png

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 https://podcastbrunchclub.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/10/Food-Culture.png

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.
