Five things to hear this week
The turning of the year prompts many of us to reflect on the past, take a snapshot of the present, and peer into our futures. This week’s podcast playlists do the same.
Debbie Millman, host of the long-running podcast Design Matters, has curated a mind-opening and perspective-shifting collection on the subject of possible futures. Sara Weber points us to some inspiring women, and Podster Magazine shares the shows that are humming in their office’s earbuds. We’ve uncovered some particularly memorable moments in history podcasts. And Tina Antolini, co-creator of Gravy — an award-winning show that tells stories about the American South through food — has assembled a treasure trove of stories about race and social justice down south that couldn’t be more relevant as we near Martin Luther King Day here in the US.
Stories of race and social justice in the American South. From the producers of Gravy.

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?
