CADA Snapshot 05/26/2024

Podcasts we are listening to (in no particular order):

  1. “SmartLess” (E) with Jason Bateman, Sean Hayes, & Will Arnett is a podcast that connects and unites people from all walks of life to learn about shared experiences through thoughtful dialogue and organic hilarity. A nice surprise: in each episode of SmartLess, one of the hosts reveals his mystery guest to the other two. What ensues is a genuinely improvised and authentic conversation filled with laughter and newfound knowledge to feed the SmartLess mind.
  2. “Armchair Expert” (E) Hi, I’m Dax Shepard, and I love talking to people. I am endlessly fascinated by the messiness of being human, and I find people who are vulnerable and honest about their struggles and shortcomings to be incredibly sexy. I invite you to join me as I explore other people’s stories. We will celebrate, above all, the challenges and setbacks that ultimately lead to growth and betterment.
  3. “Wiser Than Me” (E)  Each week, she has funny, touching, personal conversations with iconic older women who are brimming with the kind of unapologetic attitude and wisdom that only comes with age. Julia sits at the feet of some extraordinary teachers. Tune in to laugh, cry and get wise. All Hail Old Women!
  4. “How I Built This” Guy Raz interviews the world’s best-known entrepreneurs to learn how they built their iconic brands. In each episode, founders reveal deep, intimate moments of doubt and failure, and share insights on their eventual success. How I Built This is a master-class on innovation, creativity, leadership and how to navigate challenges of all kinds.
  5. “The Great Creators” Become a more inventive, imaginative you. Every week, Guy Raz (creator of How I Built This) leads a deep dive conversation with someone at the top of their game. From conquering stage fright to learning to be more present and focused, you’ll learn how each guest mastered their craft and ultimately became more successful in life. The result? An arsenal of tools and techniques you can apply to your own life and work, allowing you to harness your talent and become a better version of yourself.
  6. “No Stupid Questions” On this podcast, we take big ideas and break them down to have a better understanding of our world. From politics to pizza, cryptocurrencies to castles, we ask the questions so you don’t have to. “No Stupid Questions” is the podcast for curious people who want to tackle big problems. Hosted by a high-schooler with big questions about his world!
  7. “Freakonomics Radio” co-author Stephen J. Dubner uncovers the hidden side of everything. Why is it safer to fly in an airplane than drive a car? How do we decide whom to marry? Why is the media so full of bad news? Also: things you never knew you wanted to know about wolves, bananas, pollution, search engines, and the quirks of human behavior.
  8. “Revisionist History” Malcolm Gladwell’s journey through the overlooked and the misunderstood. Every episode re-examines something from the past—an event, a person, an idea, even a song—and asks whether we got it right the first time. From Pushkin Industries. Because sometimes the past deserves a second chance.
  9. “4 Things with Amy Brown” oin Amy Brown, co-host of The Bobby Bones Show, as she chats about “4 Things” each episode that she practices to promote an overall healthy well-being and maintain an attitude of gratitude, which she is trying to instill in her newly adopted children from Haiti while juggling the crazy schedule of a working mom!
