“Stuff You Missed In History Class” from HowStuffWorks – Podcast

If you’ve been following me for any time you know that I like history, especially what I like call history’s quirky corners. And this podcast is full of them. There is a library of 11 years of episodes to choose from so if you can’t find something here you’d like to know more about than I don’t know where to send you. Each episode runs about 15 mins. and the hosts give you and in depth look at a particular person or event in history. Recently I enjoyed episodes about “How the Hearst Castle Works” and “The Caning of Charles Sumner on the Senate Floor”. The cover every era of history from the Ancient World to Modern Day politics and every corner of the world. I also like that at the end of every episode they will point you to further resources on the topic on the internet so you can keep digging if you’re so inclined. The hosts are very congenial and I find the presentations very well organized. So all you history buffs, if you haven’t come across this podcast yet you need to check it out.

“The Bright Sessions” Podcast

This is an audio drama which I have been loving. The story is about a therapist, Dr. Bright, who works with patients known as “atypicals”. Each of her patients has a type of superpower, such as, hearing other people’s thoughts, time traveling, or dream walking. Dr. Bright’s goal is to help them to understand and live with their ability. At the same time Dr. Bright is affiliated with an organization call the AM whose stated goal is to help atypicals but who may have some less than helpful activities going on.

I was immediately intrigued by the premise of this podcast and the characters, the acting and the story quickly had me hooked. There is of course a lot of drama but also intrigue, action, and romance. I found this to be well written and very creative. I would recommend starting at the beginning in order to really get the story. I think you can find this on just about all podcast apps and at their website thebrightsessions.com. If you enjoy stories that are a little bit out there, I think you will love this one.
