Hello fellow humans! My name is Tannis and this is my podcast recommendation blog.
What are my qualifications for taking on such a consequential task you ask?
Nothing! Welcome to the internet!
In all seriousness, I am the Content Manager here at Audioburst. We serve up the world’s largest library of talk audio content in a searchable and shareable format.
This involves a process of listening to over 6 million minutes of radio and podcasts a month! (For context, there are only about 44,000 minutes in a month 😲)
We automatically transcribe all of the audio, analyze it for important information, and segment it into smaller bits that we call “bursts.”
The gist of it is – I listen to A LOT of talk audio content.
As Content Manager, I preside over our audio library. This means that there are currently 5,000 podcast names swirling around in my brain. And I’ve listened to all of them 🤯
I listen while I’m at work, commuting to and from the office, while doing the dishes and laundry… even in the shower!
I’m a real podcast fiend.
Introducing: Tannis on Pods
I’ve started this blog series because one of the most difficult aspects of finding a new podcast to listen to is discoverability. We all know there are a gazillion podcasts out there, but how do we find a great one on a topic that we actually want to listen to?
Hopefully, I can help with this predicament!
Every two weeks, I will recommend a podcast or podcast episode that I think warrants a listen. My picks will cover every subject under the sun. Sometimes it’ll be funny, sometimes informative, sometimes challenging.
My goal is to make podcasts more accessible to people who don’t consume audio 15 hours a day. I’m guessing there are a few of you out there? 😂
With that said, check out my first-ever podcast recommendation: America Dissected with Abdul El-Sayed, Ep 4: “Superbugging Out”
In light of the terrifying coronavirus outbreak which is going to kill us all, I am recommending this episode of America Dissected to help bring the conversation back to improving our health care and away from the seemingly impending zombie apocalypse. Sometimes it feels like our personal health is out of our control – just touching the “stop request” button on the bus gives me the heebie-jeebies. This episode should serve as a reminder that there are measures we can each take to reclaim authority over our health and wellbeing. Listening to America Dissected was a very informative experience that I’d like to share with you all!
This is episode #4 in a ten-part series from Crooked Media. The show “goes beyond the headlines to explore what really matters for our health.”
This particular episode does a deep-dive into antibiotic misuse, which is “contributing to the global rise of an unseen, deadly force: antibiotic-resistant superbugs.”
Wash your hands, people!
Let me know what you think!
Please reach out if you listen to the episode and let me know what you think. Drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you enjoyed the podcast, be sure to check out the whole ten-part series, starting with episode one about the anti-vaccine movement.
Until next time folks!
Content Manager at Audioburst and podcast fanatic.
