It's one of my favorite things to do, turn on a podcast and power through my work. I don't necessarily care for the work part as much but when I'm tuned into one of my favorite podcasts it makes all the busy-work, dare I say it, bearable.
I obviously love listening back to my favorite episodes of KFAN podcasts, I often times check out church sermons from some of my favorite local and national pastors, but there's one podcast that I continuously go back to when I'm looking to be entertained and informed at the same time.
It's called "Radiolab".
From WNYC studios "Radiolab is a show about curiosity. Where sound illuminates ideas, and the boundaries blur between science, philosophy, and human experience" or at least that's what their website reads. I like it because it's intelligent, edited well, presented well and almost always opens my eyes to the actuality behind something I so often take for granted.
Below is one of my all-time favorite episodes, it breaks down the super interesting real-life story behind the origination of the Glomar Response. Not sure what the Glomar Response is? I bet you're more familiar than you know, but the story behind it is fascinating.
