This live-taped podcasts takes place in Canada, so you know everyone’s super nice. People get up and read their childhood writing in front of a live audience.

For true crime fans, this show is a must. Comedians Georgia Hardstark and Karen Kilgariff research interesting murders and present them to each other and Georgia’s cats.

When you hear the name Malcolm Gladwell, a certain expectation goes along with it. An expectation of excellent and thought provoking work. This podcast serves up just that.

This podcast looks at the question “How are you?” and imagines what would happen if you answered honestly. Host Nora McInerny talks to survivors of awful circumstances and lets them tell their story. The moral of it all? Learning that it’s okay to not be okay. At a time where everyone is supposed to have a new shiny glow, it can be hard to feel like things are falling apart. But this show explains how that feeling is totally normal and gives you permission to feel terrible, and how to feel better.
