1. The Weekly List
It is sometimes easy to forget that we’re basically living in the dystopian future that Back to the Future II predicted, but The Weekly List’s host Amy Siskind is the antidote to that apathy. She’s here to remind us that these new normal things are not so normal at all, and that we shouldn’t accept things at face value. The podcast is very America-centric, but touches on a lot of other important newsworthy stories from around the world, focusing on issues that sometimes get lost in the fast-paced news cycle.
