5 things to hear this week
The backstory: Every week at RadioPublic, we highlight a new set of hand-curated #PodcastPlaylists — think old-school mix tape, but for podcast episodes. Some share a theme, and others are a selection of favorites from tastemakers like authors, podcast hosts, and publications. Want to be the first to hear when new playlists are available? Join our mailing list here.
As we wave farewell to 2016 and prepare for a fresh start, we’re listening to: the year’s best episodes as selected by The Bello Collective and PRX; gamechanging episodes hand-picked by the wittiest woman in podcasting, Helen Zaltzman; a road trip playlist perfect for a long drive; and a collection of shows that will boost your mood.
