What’s up, fellow humans? 2021 is off to a . . . start. It’s happening. It’s here. It’s also a great time to hole up with some podcasts—a golden age of podcast-holing-up, really. To help you wade through the avalanche of listenable offerings out there, we decided to share some suggestions, as well as an update on the competition between Apple Podcasts vs Spotify.
You might be wondering who we are. We’re the SPI Podcasts Team: Sara Jane Hess (Senior Producer) and David Grabowski (Producer). We manage all of Pat’s shows and are working on some sit-on-our-hands–exciting stuff at SPI that we can’t tell you about just yet (but we will when we can, we promise!).
Anyway, let’s start out with four podcasts we think you should try on for size.
