    RadioPublic Pro is to discontinue. For $12/month, the product offered enhanced podcast websites, an enhanced embedded player, and a tipping service. The free service RadioPublic Basic will continue; the company has been owned by Acast since Feb 2021.

    RadioPublic, which was also sending out Acast promotional spam, has had its privacy page quietly restored again, after we reported it was missing. However, it dates from 2016, is authored by Jake Shapiro (who left RadioPublic to join Apple two years ago), and claims "If we merge with another company such that your information will become subject to a different privacy policy, we’ll notify you before the transfer. You can opt out of the new policy by deleting your account during the notice period". The last email from RadioPublic to its users was a full year before Acast bought RadioPublic's assets a year ago; we've asked Acast for details about how the promised notification happened.

LGBTQ+ Stories
LGBTQ+ Stories
The democratic nature of podcasting has made it a place for LGBTQ+ voices and stories to thrive since the beginning, and that’s something to celebrate. Here are some stories and voices that resonate with me, through their explorations of identity, community, courage, vulnerability and of course, parenting. Back in 2006, my first sense of community as a newly out lesbian sprang from a podcast. The Planet: the podcast for L Word fans, was, to me, more entertaining and relatable than The L Word itself and, though it was one-sided, hosts Elka and KC were the first lesbians I really got to...

Interesting corners of the internet, the impact of technologies on our lives, and more
I've been diving into tech and data-related podcasts over the past couple of months, and I'm trying hard to listen only to ones that include a diversity of voices - specifically, episodes which have no more than three men without including at least one woman talking. There's some great ones out there, and so far I've noticed there's a particular investment in high-quality podcasts from the United States, more so than in other regions of the world. Here are a few of my favourites that I've listened to over the past few weeks, discussing interesting corners of the internet, the...

Newly Discovered by the Kitchen Sisters
Here are some podcasts that have captivated us lately. Girls, sounds, kitchens, archives. These are our beat.
From playfulness to deeper feelings, and the spectrum in between
From playfulness to deeper feelings, and the spectrum in between
We always try to highlight a range of emotions in our work, using playfulness to access deeper feelings. And the podcasts we like tend to reflect that, too. We love stuff that makes us laugh, but also stuff that makes us cry. Here are some of our favourite podcast episodes that fall throughout that spectrum. Mira Burt-­Wintonick and Cristal Duhaime are the co-creators and producers of CBC's Love Me, a podcast about the messiness of human connection. Previously they produced Jonathan Goldstein’s WireTap, for which the team won the 2015 Prix Italia for Best Original Radio Drama. They are cur...

Dallas Taylor's Stories about Sound
I’m Dallas Taylor, and I host a show called Twenty Thousand Hertz which tells the stories behind the world’s most recognizable and interesting sounds. The following playlist includes a couple of our episodes as well as what I consider the cream of the crop in sonic goodness. They demonstrate incredible ways to use sound in storytelling as well as how to effectively talk about sound in a clear and unpretentious way. They are brilliantly crafted and communicate complex ideas within a sound-rich package. Many of these episodes were watershed moments in the development of Twenty Thousand Hertz. Enjoy!

Organized Sound
Organized Sound
Music tells us so much about mind, emotion, values, and the overall human experience, but what is it and how do we judge it? The closest thing to a definition we have of music is that it is "organized sound." From the basic chord to the musical mashup, this is a playlist that inspires deeper thinking about music.

Some of the finest goofs from The Brothers McElroy
The Brothers McElroy began crafting fine podcast content in 2011 by offering advice to Yahoo! Answers users on their show My Brother, My Brother, and Me. Now with nearly a dozen shows across several networks, the boys bring their comedy chops to cover everything from medical history to video game creations.

Adventure and Admiration
Adventure and Admiration
This is a list of podcasts that I admire, or that have inspired me, or that I feel should be admired more than they are… or all three at once. Some are specifically "For Kids," and some are less For-Kids, but not Not-For-Kids. John Sheehan is the creator of Eleanor Amplified, a kid’s adventure podcast, and the Manager of On-Demand Audio & Podcasts at WHYY in Philadelphia; he was previously a producer on ‘Fresh Air with Terry Gross’ for 9 years.
Understanding our options, opportunities and obstacles
Understanding our options, opportunities and obstacles
As the New Year begins, it is hard not to think of and envision possible futures. In a time of intense uncertainty, it may be helpful to consider our myriad potentials in an effort to fully understand our options, opportunities and obstacles. Whether it is an examination of the cosmos or a deconstruction of our consciousness, the eight podcast episodes I’ve chosen all circle a common denominator: what is possible.
Barry Lam's Hidden Conflicts
Barry Lam's Hidden Conflicts
As a philosopher by profession, I can't get over how wonderful audio is as a medium to uncover hidden assumptions behind the most common aspects of American life. These assumptions are so pervasive they seem natural and yet so pernicious that when we start questioning them, everything about them unravels. This is a playlist about unraveling those hidden assumptions. Barry Lam is the creator of Hi-Phi Nation, a sound and story-driven show about philosophy, weaving philosophy with narrative storytelling, investigative journalism, and soundtracking.

We're Jack and Tanner from the Baby-Sitters Club Club, a podcast in which we discuss the classic novels in the great Sitters' Cycle by Ann Matthews Martin in order. Jack is an insufferably pedantic English major who insists on referring to these books as "texts" and finding literary references in them, while Tanner is a tin-foil-hat-wearing conspiracy theorist who is certain that if you scratch the surface, you'll find that these books are about magical bees. All of the awesome podcasts in this playlist are big influences on how we see the world, and we hope you like them as...

Hello there, I’m D.S. Moss, host and producer of the death podcast, The Adventures of Memento Mori (www.remembertodie.com). I live in Brooklyn, NYC, and so do the hosts of these podcasts I’ve selected. Now, hosting a podcast and living in Brooklyn is about as common as a man bun, but…these folks are all in my hood. In fact, two of them even live on my street. I love the work my neighbors do and I hope you do too.

A bedtime playlist (that won’t send you to sleep)
I produce SleepTalker, ‘the podcast about sleep, dreams, nightmares and what happens in your head after dark’. In the show, I interview people about the idiosyncrasies of their sleeping patterns (and, well, pretty much anything that can happen after we turn out the lights). There have been some great podcast episodes and radio stories about the science of sleep, but that’s not my focus here (or with my podcast). Instead, I want to look at what it feels like to sleep - as well as the frustrations of trying to - so here’s a collection of audio stories that loo...
