Creative and captivating, a favorite
Love Word of Mouth! I drive a lot and love podcasts. This is one of my favorites, up there with This American Life, Invisibilia, Radio Lab and Innovation Hub. I think of it as interesting stories for interesting people. The topics are hard to define. Pretty much everything one can be interested in and a big bunch of stuff that we did not think to be interested in because we did not know of it yet. I read books discussed on the show, got ideas for gifts, got inspired for my work (I study creativity) and above all got entertained. Word of Mouth is intelligent and playful and a terrific source of conversation topics. Give it a try! It will be one of those amazing discoveries you can’t stop talking about!

The Merge Show
I just found this show while driving back from Portsmouth. The content varied and interesting, but falling under one umbrella concept of Merging. From organ transplants to comporate merges... very interesting and new. I will be revisiting this show.
