Life Hack: Binge-listen to interesting podcasts when running long errands alone to avoid shooting self in face.
Recently, I came across two different series that I managed to finish in less than a day, each!
Caliphate: Ever wonder what makes an average kid from a place like Canada join ISIS? No? Is that not what normal people spend their days thinking about? How dare you imply that I am not normal! Anyway, tune into this podcast to hear first-hand why a young Pakistani-Canadian with moderate Muslim parents joined ISIS, how he joined ISIS, what happened when he joined ISIS and how he got out. I think i’ve typed ISIS enough times to get myself on some kind of watch-list. I will now be going underground for some time.
Dirty John: For a less ISIS-y option, i’d recommend this podcast which is based on a true story of a woman who thinks she’s found true love at long last. If you’re reading this and you’re above the age of 30, then you know that true love doesn’t exist and the nicer he is the more likely he is to be a murderer or on some FBI wanted list. If you’re interested to see what the characters in the podcast look like in real life, click here, but make sure you listen first because the article has spoilers!
