Aaron Mahnke has another podcast to check out, and it’s perfect for Droughtlander. Take a listen to That’s Just Weird by Aaron Mahnke.
I will admit that Aaron Mahnke is one of my favorite podcasters right now. He has been for a long time, ever since I found Lore on Stitcher (when that was still running!). Now, I will listen to any of the podcasts that he produces, and his latest one is called That’s Just Weird.
If you want something that is a relatively short listen, this is for you. I get through two episodes as I’m walking the dogs, but I tend to now listen to it when I’m folding laundry on a weekend. Otherwise, I end up pulling funny faces while I walk and I think my neighbors may think I’m weird doing that. It suits the podcast, though!
What is That’s Just Weird by Aaron Mahnke about?
The podcast title gives it away. There are a lot of weird things that happen in the world. Some of them are in news reports now, while others happened in the past. Mahnke looks at all of them, and he brings us stories in each of his episodes.
There is a look at the beard tax in Russia, and even the story of a Swiss couple that went missing for 75 years and how their bodies were finally found. How about what actually happened to the Tower of Pisa, which wasn’t supposed to lean? What happened to it?
Each episode is around 20 minutes long.
