A while ago, I did a series of posts called ‘People I Read’. In that series, I gave little blurbs about the other blogs and sites I regularly read. It was sort of a callback to the blogrolls of the early days of blogs. I thought it would be nice to do something similar for the podcasts I listen to. So here is a new series of blurbs. As with the previous series, I’ll try to put up a new one every couple of weeks.
One of my favorite newish podcasts is The Uncertain Hour, from the same people who bring us Marketplace. Each season of this podcast tackles one issue, allowing host Krissy Clark to take a deep dive into things like welfare reform (season one) and regulation (season two). The first season, for example, was an excellent primer on welfare form, thematically tied together by a single weird album focused on welfare-to-work. I highly recommend it if you want to learn the backstories behind some pressing current events.
