LISTEN TO THIS | Get Out in Front

I’m a podcast junkie, and LISTEN TO THIS is a recap of my favorite tidbits, soundbites and short bursts of brilliance from this week. After digesting 17 hours and 48 minutes of podcasts this week (I broke a 1,000 minutes!), here’s my top 3 must-listen-to moments.


HERE’S THE THING | Fred Armisen

Listening to Fred Armisen describe his relationship with Portlandia co-creator Carrie Brownstein, reminded me of the importance of having someone “to be not great around.” The warm, genuine moment starts at 27:15.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE | The Hobson & Holtz Report - #668

At 15:34, Shel Holtz walks through a study that explores the myth of information overload. I like the way he frames it up with examples of dire warnings about too much information throughout history. It was refreshing to hear that participants did not feel overwhelmed, but instead felt “empowered and enthusiastic.” The trick to handling so much information is to learn to fil­ter for specific interests and adjust the flow to match your individual speed.


RODERICK ON THE LINE | The Conditions of Love

John Roderick is captivating storyteller. In the last three minutes, he tells the tale of his first cross-country meet. Start at 102:15 to hear his vivid lesson about the importance of pacing yourself.

Podcast Test Drives:

Enough - I’m working my way through many of the 70 Decibels podcasts. Myke Hurley and Patrick Rhone recently updated the format of the show. I like the discussions on my first two samples, so I’m keeping it in the line up.
