Arts – Belarus – Recommended podcasts
From outsiders like a Westboro Baptist Church defector and a female Mormon psychopath to such thought leaders as anti-woke scholar James Lindsay and feminist Helen Lewis, BBC journalist Andrew Gold (andrewgold_ok on Twitter/Insta) takes us away from our comfort zone and into the worlds of people on the edge and the best thinkers of our time. New episodes every Monday.
With an open mind and a wry sense of humour, Andrew alternates the theme of guest somebody totally 'on the edge' - whether it be the woman who married a sociopathic bigamist or an ex-Muslim whose family tried to kill her - or interviews with such leading minds as conservative peer Lord Daniel Finkelstein and scholar Helen Pluckrose.
It's placed in Apple's New & Noteworthy category and been a top Editor Pick for Castbox and Stitcher, who also placed it in their 'What we're listening to'. Andrew has been making documentaries about bizarre, unusual and remarkable people around the world for a decade. He's done battle with an exorcist, taken on anti-abortionists and hunted for UFOs, all while living in six different countries and learning to speak five languages.
In this podcast, he aims to get to the humanity of people living on the fringes, and introduce these people with diverse ways of looking at the world to the listener. It's not all deep and sad - he aims to get humour and fun out of these people, so the audience can also actually...be entertained! Follow him on twitter here @andrewgold_ok.
