Binge-worthy podcasts 2021: bet you can’t only listen to one
I love podcasts. I think I love them because I can do other stuff while listening. They are also perfect for car trips to work. Here are some of my favourites that I’ve listened to this year so far and I think you’ll like them too.
Cutthroat Inc looks into the lives of two friends and business partners who seem to have it all. After Christopher Smith mysteriously vanishes and then strange e-mail messages start arriving supposedly from him, those close to him knew something was wrong. But what they discover is far worse than they could have imagined.
In God We Lust
Brought to you by the same folks from Even the Rich (a deep dive into wealthy famous people), In God We Lustis a “you can’t make this stuff up” story of a disgraced evangelist, his wife and their luxury pool attendant lover. This menage a trois wouldn’t be such a big deal if the people involved weren’t from one of America’s most famous evangelical families that run a university with a VERY strict code of conduct.
Bed of Lies
They think they have the perfect relationship. Then he just disappears. One woman’s search to find Mr Right leads her to find other women who have a similar story with the same man. And then they uncover a web of lies. This feels like a real-life James Bond tale and chances are you won’t guess why this man does what he does. Bed of Lies is another so crazy it must be true podcast.
Guru: The Dark Side of Enlightenment
If you watched The Secret, then you’d have heard of James Arthur Ray. After a few deaths at one of his sweat lodges, he is convicted and sent to prison. Guru: The Dark Side of Enlightenmentfollows that story. People look for meaning and salvation but this goes way too far.
Fool Me Twice
This podcast explores the world of online dating, scams and catfishing and how it can all go horribly wrong. Jules Hannaford was successful and meets Truman, a man who seems to tick all the right boxes. Jules flies halfway across the world to be with him but things are not as they seem. Fool Me Twiceexplores this true story.
By now you know about cryptocurrency and you also know there are a lot of scams out there. A Death in Cryptoland follows the true story of a crypto mogul who dies under mysterious circumstances and is the only one with the key to access his clients’ fortunes. With him dead no one can access the money and people aren’t happy. This podcast goes in search of some answers.
Known as Canada’s Jeffrey Epstein, Evil By Designfollows the fashion mogul Peter Nygard as he is accused of rape, sexual assault and human trafficking. The designer denies it all but over 80 women from around the world say otherwise.
I usually send out a weekly mailer with a recap of blog posts but also some personal anecdotes. If you want to know about competitions or just catch up in a more personal setting then you might like to receive the mailer.
