First up, Liz has a little announcement. Then its time to recommend podcasts. Nick looks into the world of a soccer savant with American Prodigy. Liz finds the happy in the news cycle with Good for a Change. And Zane looks at the weird and wonderful, specifically cryptozoology with The Cryptid Factor. After that, the team moves onto reviewing their Sleep podcasts from last week. Liz Recommends - Good For A Change https://good-for-a-change.zencast.website Jarrod, Sean and Hollie combat the barrage of awful, everyday news with good stuff that'll make you feel happy inside. For both: Pick either a recent ep for up to date news, or a thing you wanna hear about. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/good-for-a-change/id1486123868 Nick Recommends - American Prodigy He was an American prodigy. The next Pelé. The savior of U.S. soccer. But he wasn't even old enough to drive. In 2004, Freddy Adu joined MLS at 14 years old, becoming the youngest American pro team sport athlete in 100 years. His story is a tale of talent, money, fame and fútbol. Journalist Grant Wahl, who covered Freddy and LeBron James in their teens, retraces the legend of Freddy as he went from superstar to one of the biggest "what ifs," asking: What determines who "makes it" and who "doesn't"? And what does it say about our cultural obsession with the potential of young athletic genius? https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/american-prodigy-freddy-adu/id1534964872 Zane Recommends - The Cryptid Factor https://audioboom.com/channels/4961702 Rhys Darby, Dan Schreiber, David Farrier and 'Buttons' bring you The Cryptid Factor - a show dedicated to the weird and the wonderful, and in particular, Cryptozoology. Hear the team passionately (and often awkwardly) discuss animals yet to be proven by science - like the Mongolian Death Worm, Chupacabra, Bigfoot, and the Loch Ness Monster. Though they take the pseudo-science as seriously as they can, they struggle to take themselves seriously at all. Its hosts are comedian & actor Rhys Darby, respected television journalist and documentarian David Farrier, host of top-rating podcast 'No Such Thing as a Fish' Dan Schreiber - and Pulling it all together is their best friend, 'Buttons'. If anything goes wrong, it is probably his fault. For Both: Pick one and hope for the best https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/id646121818 Mentioned in the review: https://mynoise.net/ See acast.com/privacy for privacy and opt-out information.
