This post is an attempt to a new series of blogposts, recommending good podcasts I’ve come across.
First on the list, is The Z List Dead List, a podcast by Iszi Lawrence, based on her comedy show of the same name.
The basic concept of the show is that Iszi Lawrence invites comedians (and others) to come and talk about a person who is a) dead, and b) should be more widely known.
This concept allows for a great series of podcasts, where you get introduced to some interesting people from history. There is a British bias in the selection, but even so, we get introduced to a pretty widespread selection of people through the 7 series, that exists so far.
Given that Iszi Lawrence is a feminist and a skeptic, the podcast is great in these areas, and several of the episodes includes people from these areas.
If you have any comments to the podcast, or have any suggestions for podcasts that I should check out please let me know in the comments,
