Lockdown Podcast Recommendations

Some of these are older episodes that warrant fresh listening. Others, like Time To Get My News From A River and You Can’t Meditate This Away were born out of COVID and the Black Lives Matter protests. He’s Still Neutral remains my favorite-ever podcast episode. It’s upbeat, which is good because sometimes your brain needs something positive to counteract the news. But then again, it’s also time to lean in to issues of race, class, disability and climate. I say mix it up a little, but do engage.

[Also, I have been streaming RRR community radio. The RRR Radiothon is coming up. The station hasn’t been receiving much in the way of sponsorship so listener subscriptions are important.]
