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?

How are you greeting 2017? Here at RadioPublic, we’re celebrating the addition of two new features in the app: you can now download episodes to listen offline, and organize new episodes the way you like them. It’s pretty sweet, and it means you can now listen to RadioPublic on the subway without worrying about your signal cutting out.
Speaking of riding to work, this set of 30-minute episodes is going into rotation as the perfect accompaniment to your daily commute. And here in the US, where winter’s taken hold, we’re dreaming of the Antipodes by way of Kate Montague’s delightful foray into Australian audio. Our inner (and, let’s be honest, outer) tech and data nerds are delighting in a geektastic playlist from Zara Rahman, as well as this roundup of future visions. And Radiotopia’s best episodes of 2016 are reminding us of just how much brilliant and creative audio podcasters produced last year.
