Description

You can never have enough podcasts in your rotation. They keep us company when we’re alone with a sink full of dirty dishes, when we're folding laundry or heading to work. In this episode, we bring you some of our current favourites.

Podcasts featured this week:

Startup: Success Academy – "Eva Moskowitz wants to fix a really big problem. There are over a million kids in New York City's public schools. Most can't read or do math at grade level. And it's largely poor, black and brown kids who are stuck in the lowest performing schools. Eva's the founder and CEO of Success Academy. Her school network is growing at lightning speed, and her students get among the highest standardized-test scores in the city, beating out schools in some of the wealthiest districts."

How Did This Get Made – Casey Wilson joins hosts Paul Scheer, June Diane Rapheal, and Jason Mantzoukas to discuss the 1991 comedy Drop Dead Fred. A giant fight ensues.

Inappropriate Questions – "Transgender folks can get asked invasive questions about their bodies. Harv and Elena speak to student activist Robert Molloy."

Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend – "Comedian, actor, and writer Kumail Nanjiani feels apologetic about being Conan O'Brien's friend. Kumail sits down with Conan to discuss his recent absence on the television program, coming from a hardworking family, having incredible balance, hating Ferris Bueller, and the best way to reward oneself."

Bear 148 – "Many people called Bear 148 the perfect neighbour because she wasn't afraid of people. So how did she end up being shot by a hunter far from her home?"

Party Lines – A political primer for every kind of concerned citizen co-hosted by Rosemary Barton (The National) and Elamin Abdelmahmoud (BuzzFeed News).
