Podcasts That Be Poppin: Another Round: Blogmas Day 8
How do I love Another Round? Let me count the ways. I love Another Round to the depth and breadth and height my soul can reach, when feeling out of sight, for the ends of being and ideal grace.
If you have never listened to Another Round, give me your hand. Because I can show you the world.
Another Round is a Buzzfeed podcast hosted by Tracy Clayton and Heben Nigatu. I'm convinced that Buzzfeed does nothing wrong, and they don't fail here.
Tracy and Heben cover any and everything from ridiculous news story to feminism to mental health with a comedy twist so it's easy to digest. The show, never lasting more than an hour, is broken into sections, which change from week to week. After 2-3 segments, they interview someone who's usually amazing. We're talking Uzo Aduba. We're talking Melissa Harris-Perry. We are talking Hilary Clinton.
Another Round made me like Lena Dunham, and I couldn't stand her before the episode!
Interviews are followed by a round of not-so rapid fire questions affectionately called Pew Pew Pew that always include the famous question, "What do you think about squirrels?" After that the show ends with Tracy and Heben buying a drink for something they love.
The show is hilarious and inspiring and helps you pay attention to the issues without even realizing it. You will laugh. You'll get the best career advice from Stacy-Marie Ishmael, Managing Editor for Buzzfeed's Mobile News app. You will take better care of yourself. And you'll get to know some extremely dope people, like Jean Grae and Gene Demby.
If you're not listening to Another Round, you're missing out on having 45-55 minutes of happiness in your life. Do it for Tracy's Joke Time. Do it for Drunken Debates. Do it for the White Guy Name Quiz. Trust me. You want to know what all of these are.
Do you love Another Round as much as I do? Let's talk about it!
