Leon Neyfakh is the co-creator of the podcasts Slow Burn and Fiasco — two shows that take a closer look at big political scandals from the past. In this episode he shares a clip from the latest season of Fiasco and some of his favourite podcasts. . Podcasts featured in this episode: . 1. Fiasco: The Iran-Contra scandal was a complex affair with a lot of moving parts involved. But its origins can be traced back to the very first day of Ronald Reagan’s presidency. . 2. The Gravy Train: Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was a harbinger of the populist wave that would sweep the world. But before all that, reporter Robyn Doolittle was shown a video of the mayor smoking crack cocaine — and she couldn’t tell anyone. . 3. The Cut On Tuesdays: In this clip, comedian Aparna Nancherla talks about her anxiety, and how bringing it to the stage changed everything for her. . 4. 30 for 30: At first, the Donald Stirling affair seems almost cliche: Stirling, a powerful businessman and owner of the L.A. Clippers, cheats on his wife with a younger woman. But then, that woman released secret recordings of Stirling's shocking racism that shook the NBA. . 5. How to F--k up an Airport: The Berlin Brandenberg Airport was supposed to be a gleaming, world-class transit hub for the 21st century. This podcast explores how everything went so terribly wrong.
Is it the raw talent or the intense dedication to performance? Or maybe it’s the attitude, the ‘IT’ factor, that charms audiences all around the world. From Aretha to Beyonce to Celine — we bring you podcasts about some of the mightiest women in music. . Making Beyonce: "Before the Grammys, before the platinum records, before Destiny's Child, there was just a shy girl growing up in Houston. We follow Beyoncé Knowles from the stages of local talent shows to her first crack at a record deal with the group Girls Tyme." . Dolly Parton's America: "One of Dolly's most iconic and successful songs is "Jolene," a song that, at first listen, is about a romantic rival trying to steal her man: a prime example of the classic "cheating song." But some see it as flipping a popular country music trope on its head. This idea takes shape when Nadine Hubbs, a professor at the University of Michigan, writes a fourth verse to "Jolene," which makes us reimagine Dolly's songs in entirely new ways." . Switched on Pop: The Switched on Pop team join forces with producer Gina Delvac to talk about the evolution of Rihanna and her much anticipated ninth studio album. . The Big Story: "Céline Dion has been many things throughout her career, but 'cool' has rarely been one of them. As one of the bestselling artists to call this country home Céline should have won us all over long ago. But she never quite broke through to the more cynical younger generation.Until that generation stopped being cynical, that is. It turns out Céline Dion was always cool. She was just waiting for us to come to her. And over the past few years, we have, by the millions." . Inside the Junos: "Alanis Morissette burst on the scene with 'Jagged Little Pill' and shook up the music world. Her magic says Chilly is, 'that strange yodel, that weird break in her voice that makes the vocal performance so raw and so real.'" . Heat Rocks: "Heat Rocks had always planned to sit down with DJ Lynnée Denise, an LA-based DJ and music scholar, but when Aretha Franklin passed on August 16th, we invited her to come talk with us about the Queen's life and legacy as part two of our series Women Behaving Boldly."
Featuring: Conversations with People Who Hate Me: "In the summer of 2017 journalist Katie Herzog wrote a piece that was widely criticized. Ultimately she found herself at the bottom of a social media pile-on. 3,000 miles east of Katie, a woman named Robyn Kanner joined that pile-on tweeting "ur just trash." In this episode, taped live in front an audience, Katie and Robyn meet onstage for the first time to discuss what happened between them, and the unlikely twist that brought them closer than they would have ever guessed." . Food, We Need To Talk: "You know better than to expect life to be fair. But still, it's enough to drive anyone crazy: some people seem to be able to eat anything they want and never gain weight." . Drilled: "In this season we're tackling Big Oil's big propaganda machine — its origins, the spin masters who created it, and why it's been so effective. It all began more than 100 years ago with Standard Oil, John D. Rockefeller and his son, a bloody miners' strike, and the very first P.R. guy, who swooped in to clean it all up." . Death, Sex & Money: "A text message gone wrong. A bachelorette party exclusion. A racist comment during the 2016 debates. Today, we're sharing your stories about how race, identity, and racism have impacted your friendships." . Twenty Thousand Hertz: Is Paul McCartney actually a cyborg who was replaced in 1969? We'll learn about the musical phenomenon of "backmasking" and why it had people playing their records backwards. . The Program audio series: "The Program audio series is a historical podcast set in a future in which Money, State and God became fused into a single entity called the Program. Each episode is a self-contained story focusing on ordinary people inhabiting this extraordinary world. And for them, it is not this future that is terrifying - it is our present."
You’ve heard about art heists. You’ve heard about bank heists. But what about maple syrup heists? We go behind the syrupy scheme that made millions. This week on Podcast Playlist, we bring you the best true crime podcasts to binge this winter. Podcasts featured this week: . The Score: Bank Robber Diaries – "Breaking the rules at a young age set Joe Loya up for a descent into crime. From his first time robbing a bank, to a violent altercation behind bars, this is Joe Loya's origin story." .

Detective Trapp – Los Angeles Times' Christopher Goffard tells the story of homicide detective, Julissa Trapp, who worked on a case about four missing women in Orange County, California. In this clip we meet Detective Julissa Trapp. . Beyond Bizarre True Crime – "With popularity comes demand and with every commodity comes a black market. Maple syrup is no different. So when a group of thieves decided to steal some sweet liquid gold from a storage warehouse in Quebec, they weren't about to stop at a couple of bottles or cases. This would go down as one of the most lucrative and perhaps most unusual robberies in Canadian history."
This week — food insecurity across Ontario, the power of powders and pills, the surveillance of Ronan Farrow and more new podcasts. Hard to Stomach – "How do you decide between buying bread and keeping the lights on? Hard to Stomach focuses on stories from real people facing and fighting against food insecurity in communities across Ontario. Hosted by Nana aba Duncan."

So Help Me – "When Anna moved from a large apartment in Philadelphia to a small apartment in Queens, she had to get rid of most of her possessions. Throwing stuff out felt good until she got to three large plastic bins in the corner of her apartment. They were filled with all the art she'd made in Art School. For weeks, she couldn't bring herself to throw the art away. To understand why, she turned to a 4'7 Japanese tidying legend." Bad With Money – "Gaby invites a Tibetan Buddhist monk to be on his very first podcast! Gyaltsen Chopel discusses how Buddhism functions to deprioritize money altogether — and his work as a caretaker who handles day-to-day expenses and donations made to a Buddhist temple in Los Angeles. It's not the conversation you'd expect from a monk! Then, Gaby calls India to speak to assistant professor of Hindu Studies, Dheepa Sundaram, about how Hindu culture views community, money, technology and wealth." Plus, meet our new host!

For the past month, Canadian party leaders have been on the campaign trail ahead of the October 21 federal election. A lot has happened in that time, both inside Canada and around the world: Impeachment drama in the U.S., Brexit chaos in the U.K., police crackdowns on demonstrators in Hong Kong, not to mention photos of the Prime Minister in blackface here at home. It's a lot to keep track of. So this week, we're playing all Canadian political podcasts, with a little help from Elamin Abdelmahmoud, co-host of the CBC politics podcast Party Lines. Party Lines – "The polls suggest that a majority of Canadians (9 out of 10) see addressing climate change as 'important or urgent.' But do they behave and vote accordingly?" Rosie and Elamin discuss political posturing and the state of the planet. The Big Story – "...we can absolutely reckon with the fact that photos of the Prime Minister in racist makeup have been uncovered, but we also need to reckon with the larger issue of systemic racism in Canada and in Canadian politics in particular.
