NEW PODCASTS

Talking More About the Things We Think About Often

 

This year, WNYC launched several new content initiatives by partnering with emerging talent in the marketplace and by cultivating ideas from its in-house talent. WNYC’s politics reporter Anna Sale, for example, now hosts and produces Death, Sex + Money, an intimate, person-to-person show about the big questions and the hard choices that are often left out of polite conversation. Death, Sex + Money launched in May, and a segment from its premiere episode was picked up by This American Life. That episode of This American Life and Death, Sex + Money topped the iTunes charts that week. Listen here.

This year, New Tech City was consistently one of the top tech podcasts on iTunes.
