NOSTALGIA: September 2023 podcast playlist

NOSTALGIA: September 2023 podcast playlist

Nostalgia acts as a bridge between our past and present, intertwining cherished memories with our current experiences. It has the remarkable ability to evoke both positive and bittersweet emotions, reminding us of moments, people, and places that have shaped us. This complex interplay of sentimentality often prompts introspection, helping us appreciate our personal growth while maintaining a connection to the aspects of our history that continue to resonate with us. Moreover, nostalgia’s universal appeal highlights the shared human experience and our innate desire to reflect on the passage of time. Listen to these four podcast episodes about nostalgia and then join in on one of our global discussions on the topic!


ADVICE: August 2022 podcast playlist

ADVICE: August 2022 podcast playlist

Podcasts conquered the worlds of true crime and news long ago, but there’s a sleeper genre thriving just below the top of the charts. Over the past couple of years, we have been spoiled by the rise of some fantastic podcasts about giving and receiving advice. Whether we intend to or not, we all find ourselves in situations where we are asked to give or receive advice from time to time. Advice is how we learn from the mistakes and successes of others, and how we try to help others navigate around the potholes we weren’t lucky enough to miss. This playlist is made up of podcasts focusing on advice from several angles. Some are more lighthearted, some are serious, and you’ll even find advice on giving advice.

The episodes this month all discuss different types of uncertainty and ways to navigate it. Hopefully we can all find something helpful to take away about how to navigate these challenging and often dark days.
