Let's Look - Podcasts and Shows to Binge


Hello, happy Wednesday!  I am linking up with Shay and Erika for Let’s Look.  And today are talking about Podcasts and Shows we like to binge.  
I don’t typically have time to binge much of anything, in the traditional sense of the word.  I remember those OG days of binging when we had the 24 DVDs (remember?!), when we would literally sit on the couch for hours saying “just one more!”. Since I’m no longer in university with no kids and responsibilities, my time for shows and podcasts is a bit more limited.
But I am a consumer of podcasts and shows so here is what I enjoy:


The Bridge - This is Peter Mansbridge’s podcast (formally of the CBC). He covers current events with an emphasis on Canadian politics.  I am a faithful listener to all of the shows and he does 4 per week, so I do find it hard to keep up. Thankfully he takes a summer hiatus so I can take a little breather. 

Armchair Expert Umbrella - Dax and Monica (and David Farrier) put out several podcasts - I will always listen to Armchair Anonymous, Synced, and Flightless Bird.  And then I will listen to regular AE if I know the guest. 

The Daily - From the New York Times, I don’t listen to all of these, only the topics that interest me. It’s heavy on the American politics, of course, and I can only handle so much of that. 

The Ringer Dish - I like Tuesday’s show with Amanda Dobbins and Juliet Lipman.  They are on my wavelength when it comes to celebrity gossip and current events.  

The Rewatchables and The Big Picture - Two more podcasts in the Ringerverse. I listen to these if they are doing a movie or actor I like. Rewatchables dissects old movies, and The Big Picture talks about new movies, or focuses on one particular actor.  This week The Rewatchables did Twister which we just watched this weekend! 

Wiser Than Me - This is Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s podcast where she talks to older women, it is fabulous, I could listen to Julia talk all day and the guests are so fascinating.  I’m on the Ina Garten episode now. 

Current Shows

America’s Sweethearts: Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders - phenomenal television. 

Presumed Innocent - Not a huge fan of Jake Gyllenhaal but he’s good in this.

The Bear - Just the best show available right now, and it is actually a show that I want to watch again immediately.  

There are probably lots I am missing but here are a few for now!
