Detailed Podcast Librarian requests are always fun for me: the more descriptive a listener is about the shows they like or are looking for, the more research rabbit holes I get to hop down in pursuit of the right show. (And if I’m lucky, I get to surprise myself with new shows while matchmaking podcasts and listeners, too!)
For a recent listener, I received a long list of personal interests, which allowed me to pass along a handful of shows I hadn’t yet recommended to anyone — they were just waiting for the right person to come along.
The Love, Sex and Dating ‘Cast — while it primarily speaks to an Indian audience, the takeaways are universal.
Open Ended — the people behind the screens of technology and culture.
Flash Forward — each episode imagines a new future, based somewhat in the reality we live now.
Love + Radio — Documentary-ish interviews with an eclectic cast of characters. In particular, the episode A Girl of Ivory had me riveted right from the start (so good! And then there’s a twist!). I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
