As Serial is down to every other week I needed to find some new podcasts. And if they help me become a more knowledgeable appraiser – so much the better.
I stumbled upon You Must Remember This written and hosted by Karina Longworth and I am hooked. Described as a podcast “about the secret and/or forgotten histories of Hollywood’s first century.” Longworth’s episodes also venture into the world of pop music. It is a delight. Check it out here: www.youmustrememberthispodcast.com/episodes/
Closer to (my) home, the Fast Talking Podcast hosted by Andy Imholte is described as offering a “unique perspective to both industries has helped him create a unique blend of experience and knowledge valuable to auctioneers.” Topics covered will also be of interest to appraisers. I particularly enjoyed an episode on personal safety with guest Rich Schur. I recently talked Andy into putting me on an episode and he kindly agreed. It is supposed to air in February. Find that and more here: www.fasttalkingpodcast.com/new-blog/
Stuff You Missed In History Class makes me feel like I am getting away with something. It’s brainy but it also feels like brain candy. I was especially fond of the Prohibition episode where I learned about the origins of NASCAR. Get educated and entertained here: www.missedinhistory.com/podcasts/
