Tune in to these addictive podcasts

While we certainly appreciate the feeling of curling up with a good book, the life of a busy REALTOR® might not allow for marathon reading sessions.

This year, instead of an annual reading list, we’re going digital. So, the next time you’re driving between showings, why not use the time to listen to one of these podcasts as recommended by CREA staff?

Planet Money

Understanding the economy can be complicated. Once a week, Planet Money takes a small part of it and breaks it down with unique insight to help you navigate these waters.

The Herle Burly

Strategist and pollster David Herle is joined by journalists, politicians, athletes, musicians and opinion leaders. The Herle Burly offers a commotion of insights, arguments, opinions and a laugh or two.

Talking Tea

In a society dominated by coffee, Talking Tea speaks with tea experts, writers, sellers or industry insiders about unique aspects of tea drinking, tea history, tea production or tea culture. 

Ongoing History of New Music

Chronicling the history of alternative rock, music historian Alan Cross discusses its roots in punk and new wave to the modern day. Each week the show profiles an important musician or band, a significant musical trend or theme.

How I Built This

Journalist Guy Raz dives into the stories behind some of the world’s best known companies. How I Built This weaves a narrative about innovators, entrepreneurs and idealists—and the movements they built.

Missing and Murdered: Finding Cleo

Where is Cleo? Taken by child welfare workers in the 1970s and adopted in the U.S., the young Cree girl’s family says she was stolen, raped and murdered while trying to hitchhike back home to Saskatchewan. Host Connie Walker joins their search in this addictive mini-series.


It began as a true crime murder mystery but S-Town quickly pivoted to a more intimate story about the life of a singular man in a small U.S. town with plenty of secrets.

The Daily

It’s difficult to keep up with the news, but The Daily makes it easy. Each morning, host Michael Barbaro speaks with one of his fellow New York Times reporters about the most pressing story of that day.

This American Life

This American Life is a weekly, hour-long radio program hosted by Ira Glass. Primarily a journalistic non-fiction program, it has also featured essays, memoirs, field recordings, short fiction and found footage.
