Our Favorite Podcasts: Round 2

The Betts Team
April 24, 2018

We launched Round One of our favorite podcasts back in January. Now that spring has sprung,  you’re likely on the hunt for something new, inspiring and full of wisdom.

Here are a few picks from the Betts team, based on content, quality, excellence within their genre, entertainment value, and of course, our exceptionally good taste.

The Daily

This is how the news should be. And at just twenty minutes a day, it’s quick and easy. The Daily is hosted by Michael Barbaro (who ends every show with a splash of gin) and powered by The New York Times journalism.

Sarah Scheer, SDR Recruiter says “This is my daily go to for news. It keeps me in the know.”

Ella Keeven, Head of Marketing comments “I sit next to her, and she is very in the know!”


It’s good to keep yourself well rounded. And Radiolab does just that. It’s a show about curiosity. Where sound illuminates ideas, and the boundaries blur between science, philosophy, and human experience.

Chris Martin, SDR Associate and resident podcast master says “They have awesome segments on everything from politics to culture to science that never disappoint.”

Stuff You Should Know

The hosts use this podcast as a platform to educate the public about how common things work. They simplify and reveal surprising facts about common ideas. They cover literally every topic from emojis to the brain, economics, paramedics, sherpas, false positives, Meals on Wheels, and the list goes on and on.

Lauren Skuchas, Managing Director, San Francisco says “The name says it all.”
