Best Society podcasts we could find
Updated April 2020
Over the years, podcasts have become an increasingly popular medium because they are well-packed, can be followed from any place, at any time and without Internet connection. Listening to podcasts enables people gain a clearer insight about the social affairs and social issues in every corner of the world. In this catalog, there are podcasts where well-read hosts and guests discuss about people of different religions and their way of life and culture, of different communities, countries, continents, different philosophies as well as different points of view on society. Also, literature fans can learn more about the latest news from their favourite genres, emerging authors, current best selling books and literary theories. Furthermore, people can find interviews and true and inspiring life stories told by people from all walks of life. Some podcasts house activists who fight for the rights of the oppressed, ranging from animals to people, aiming at creating a better society.

Each week she'll bring you the latest chapter, so it's important to listen in, starting with Episode 1. New episode ...
 
Criminal is a podcast about crime. Not so much the "if it bleeds, it leads," kind of crime. Something a little more complex.

Revisionist History is Malcolm Gladwell's journey through the overlooked and the misunderstood.

Because sometimes the past deserves a second chance.
 
In "Hardcore History" journalist and broadcaster Dan Carlin takes his "Martian", unorthodox way of thinking and applies it to the past. Was Alexander the Great as bad a person as Adolf Hitler? What would Apaches with modern weapons be like? Will our modern civilization ever fall like civilizations from past eras? This isn't academic history (and Carlin isn't a historian) but the podcast's unique blend of high drama, masterful narration and Twilight Zone-style twists has entertained millions ...
