There are so many podcasts that we’re grateful for on team Death, Sex & Money. Every week in our newsletter, we tell our listeners about a few of our favorite recent listens.
But when it came time to make a podcast playlist for our upcoming Thanksgiving travels, we decided to turn to the experts — the hosts of some of the podcasts that we love. Podcast heroes like Tracy Clayton from Another Round, PJ Vogt from Reply All, Ann Friedman from Call Your Girlfriend and Glynn Washington from Heaven’s Gate — along with lots of others — all weighed in.
Scroll through their picks below! And find the full playlist on the RadioPublic app here.
Death, Sex & Money host Anna Sale’s pick:
Uncivil: The Raid
“There are a lot of reasons I am really excited about this new show — how it deepens my understanding of our current political moment, how the hosts play off each other to make history feel personal, accessible, and hip, how Harriet Tubman shows up unexpectedly — but what I really love about this particular episode is the sense of place it gave me. As I listened, I could see all of this playing out on American land, land that’s still right here, not so long ago.”
Another Round co-host Tracy Clayton’s pick:
RedHanded: Episode 19, Halloween Special Part 1
“The Halloween episode begins with one of the worst, most riveting and unbelievable stories I’ve ever heard. So that’s my pick! Hope I don’t ruin this playlist for everybody!”
Another Round producer Eleanor Kagan’s pick:
Nancy: Episode 13, It’s Really You
“My pick is the episode of Nancy where the young person from Unalaska, AK gets drag queen tips from [former RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant] Alaska! It makes me so, so happy.”
Nancy co-host Tobin Low’s pick:
The Nod: Whole Hog
Nancy co-host Kathy Tu’s pick:
