An NPR Series For Any Mood

 

Whether the thought of hearing another Bieber tune makes you want to hurl or you just need some auditory company in the cubicle, podcasts are the way to go. These sensational series cater to nearly any preference imaginable. Whether you subscribe, download or listen live, podcasts offer enriching entertainment that can’t be beat.

 

If you’re waiting to experience vignettes of human life…

 

Listen to The Moth Radio Hour. You’ll meet a young Chicagoan watching his mother run an airport scam, a gravedigger undergoing jaw surgery, a wife losing her husband to cancer. The Moth’s real stories are told live around the world without notes and are recorded for your listening pleasure.

 

If you’re waiting to laugh your ass off…

 

Listen to Wait, Wait – Don’t tell me! It’s world news with a comic twist. Comedian host Peter Sagal quizzes celebrity panelists and plebeian listeners on each week’s headlining news stories through a series of word games and brain teasers. If the prospect of a “Listener Limmerick Challenge” doesn’t already provoke you to press play, WWDTM’s eclectic guest list will – former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, professional pickpocket Apollo Robbins and the infamous Kim K have all tried their hand at winning the game.

 

If you’re wanting to totally geek out…

 

Listen to Radiolab. You’ll learn why goats stand on cows, how the voices in our heads shape us and where patient zeroes come from. This podcast explores the world’s mysteries through a smart yet approachable scientific lens.
