Quick, don’t look now, but it’s fall! We’re less than 20 days (okay, maybe 10) from incessant rain and cold. And while those weather patterns mean different things to different people, they definitely mean one thing to everyone: no walking in the sunshine. So, let’s take advantage now! Let’s plan some long walks — to our favorite dispensaries! And what’s perfect for a walk? That’s right, a podcast. So, for your next stroll in the sun, here are our favorite podcasts to put pep in your step on your way to the shop.
The Rewatchables: Brought to you by the media mogul, Bill Simmons, and his Ringer Network, this loose, laugh-out-loud show scientifically dissects classic movies from Jaws to Clueless to White Men Can’t Jump and Jerry Maguire. Using categories like “Who Won the Movie” or “Career Apex,” a rotating cast of pop culture admirers delve into what really matters: the best popcorn movies from past and present.
Fresh Air: Thought by many to be the world’s best interviewer, Fresh Air’s Terry Gross asks the world’s most influential people about how they got where they got or how they made what they made.

Head back to the archives or hear the latest from your favorite folks.
