Wanderlust: Podcast Listening List

Wanderlust: Podcast Listening List

“Wanderlust” is a strong desire or impulse to travel. For some of us, wanderlust springs from a desire to see interesting or unique places. Some of us wander because our reality is, for one reason or another, unsatisfying. The reasons for traveling can vary as much as the effect that our travels have on us.

Looking for Love: Podcast Playlist

Looking for Love: Podcast Playlist

Dating. Ugh. What can I say? I’ve done it. I hated it. As a woman who dated into her late 30s, I can say from experience that it’s rough out there! But, dating was a means to an end: finding love. Love was lurking out there somewhere–I just needed to find it, pin it down, and make it submit to my will. In honor of the sometimes adored, sometimes abhorred Valentine’s Day, let’s dive into looking for love this month.

Gangs: March 2017 Listening List

Gangs: March 2017 Listening List

Why do people join gangs? What is their motivation for staying in them? How can gangs impact a community? Due to a code of secrecy within a gang and the threat of violence if that trust is broken, stories of life on the inside can be scarce, and even unbelievable at times. These podcast picks give us a little insight into why they continue to exist and draw more members into the fold.


Identity: Listening List

Identity: Listening List

This month’s theme is IDENTITY. I’m going to be honest here…I did not think the theme through enough before I asked for recommendations. Identity is such a broad concept, and I received so many great podcast recommendations. I quickly realized that it was going to be impossible to pick 3 episodes that touch on all […]


Starting a Family: Listening List

Starting a Family: Listening List

I’ve heard a number of podcasts recently that have explored the theme of starting (or continuing) a family. Some people know that they want kids and some don’t. Some people jump through hoops to have them and others go to great lengths to avoid them. It’s life-changing and nearly every adult human being has to think […]
