Podcast Spotlight: Looking for a New Show to Listen To? Here’s What’s New in Podcasts This Week!

With so many podcasts being made today, it’s hard to keep up. Luckily, with the help of iHeartRadio’s Podcast Spotlight, you can find something new to listen to every week. Here’s the latest on our iHeartPodcasts including new seasons and episodes:

For a deep dive into mob history and Black empowerment, “The Godmother” tells the story of a bad-ass anti-hero unafraid to bend the rules in pursuit of ambition, justice and legacy: Eunice Carter. One of the first Black women ever to become a prosecutor in America, Eunice was responsible for taking down Lucky Luciano, one of America’s most notorious mobsters in the 1930s. She operated from the heart of the Harlem Renaissance, navigating not only the corrupt world of downtown Manhattan politics, but a deeply racist and sexist pre-civil rights American society. Though her pioneering role in what became known as the “trial of the century” has been forgotten by popular history, host Nicole Perkins reveals Eunice’s life as a writer, social worker, mother, teacher, sister, socialite, political candidate, community organizer and unheralded pioneer. Listen in on Mondays.

Got the January blues? Check out “A Bit of Optimism” on Tuesdays, where host Simon Sinek talks to inspiring people to learn more about life, leadership and beyond. Thelatest episode features James Clear, the author of #1 New York Times bestseller “Atomic Habits.” In the New Year, we all reflect on how we can become better versions of ourselves in a way that actually sticks. Together, Simon and James break down his powerful approach to forming better habits, breaking the bad ones, and living the life we desire.

Country music and the great outdoors are deeply intertwined. In “God’s Country”, brothers Dan and Reid Isbell explore this intersection, uncovering how today’s biggest and most talented country stars and songwriters pull inspiration from rugged, first-hand relationships with the natural world. Nashville songwriters by profession who spent their childhoods getting muddy in the wilds of Tennessee, Dan and Reid draw on their own passion for hunting and fishing to lead a thought-provoking and fun exploration of the fundamental role of outdoor living in country music. New episodes arrive every Tuesday.
