Delicious Ingredients: March 25, 2016

Each week I will publish the most Delicious Ingredients of my Audible Feast … the scrumptious, delectable, savory, rich, sweet, and spicy podcast episodes that have fed my ears this week. This will also allow me to link directly to episodes via either Soundcloud, Stitcher, or a podcast’s website (which are often amazing and contain bonus info or complementary stories). This also brings more visual content to my site as I can link to some beautiful logos and original artwork from these sites! All episode descriptions and artwork come from the linked sites. (Note: I also try to track every episode I listen to here.)

 

memory motel

Memory Motel, Episode 1: Eyes of Another (3/15/16): “Rachel Stephenson lost her mother three days after her fifth birthday.

Neighbors

Neighbors: The Tuba Man (3/15/16): “It’s an odd scene: A man, playing a sousaphone, stands inside a tunnel on a busy Nashville road during rush hour. Is he crazy, divinely inspired or something else entirely? In this episode of Neighbors, we go inside the world of “tuba man” Joe Hunter and discover what brings him and his instrument to the tunnel.”

american submitter

American Submitter: The Key to Knowledge (1/17/16): “The Wikipedia entry of Menlo Park, California literally begins with the words “Menlo Park is an affluent suburb”. Apparently 21% of Menlo Park residents work at Facebook. In any case, it’s still in many ways a typical nice and quiet suburb of America. I know this because I’ve been there. I went there to visit my friend Scott. Scott grew up in Menlo Park and he and I currently study at an Islamic liberal arts college in Berkeley, California called Zaytuna College. In this episode we get to hear about his life, his existential struggles,  and the journey which eventually led him to Islam and now to Zaytuna College.”

hines ward show

The Hines Ward Show, Episode 11: Anthony Jeselnik…The Hines Ward of Comedy? (3/21/16): “Anthony Jeselnik is one of the most brilliant comics on the scene today.  His slicing sarcasm and cocky delivery barely mask his delight at hearing laughs and groans from the audience.  His facial expression implies that he knows a secret that we don’t, and if you’re not smart enough to figure it out, then that’s on you.  He also happens to be a hardcore Hines Ward fan, having grown up in Pittsburgh.  His edgy, fearless comedy is akin to “going over the middle” in the entertainment world.  We chat about growing up a Steelers fan, how long it takes him to develop a new act (You won’t believe it…), what it’s like to really bomb on stage, and the mindset Anthony adopts with his comedy career.  (Hint:  He hustles, and outworks everyone)”

transom

Transom Podcast: A Life Sentence: Victims, Offenders, Justice and My Mother (3/1/16): “The story of the violent crime my mother survived in the fall of 1994 has never been something I share easily. It’s more something I offer after I’ve really gotten to know someone and feel that there’s something important they need to know about me, about my family. I’m acutely aware of the impact this crime has had on my mother’s life, on our family’s life, and I’ve always had a sense of its larger consequences. I thought if I could tell the story of both the intimate and the public impact, it might be worthwhile.”

storycorps

StoryCorps, Episode 462: In the Neighborhood (3/15/16): “François Clemmons was singing in a Pittsburgh-area church when he first met Fred Rogers. Taken by his voice, Fred asked François to join the cast of his new television show as singing policeman Officer Clemmons. He would go on to play the role for 25 years, becoming the first African American actor to have a recurring part on a children’s TV show.”

reveal

Reveal: Mighty Ike (3/5/16): “Texas is home to the Houston Ship Channel, one of the world’s busiest maritime waterways. Also in Houston, and along the channel, are oil refineries and chemical plants that make up the nation’s largest refining and petrochemical complex. It’s a major economic hub. But what would happen to the area if a big hurricane hit?”

humanatureHumaNature, Episode 8: Row Row Row Your Boat. Or not. (3/15/15): “It was supposed to be a leisurely float down the Snake River. But when they lost their guide, a group of tourists got more than they bargained for.”
