Overheard at National Geographic
A recent-ish find, this is the podcast we're listening to when we're after thirty minutes of informative escapism. The premise? The snippets you might overhear whispered straight from the lips of fabled explorers up and down the corridors of Nat Geo HQ. Think stories about the secret lives of sharks, science in Socotra, and life under the sea with Jacques Cousteau. Co-hosted by National Geographic editor-at-large Peter Gwin and executive editor of National Geographic's History magazine, Amy Briggs, each episode is an illuminating deep-dive into an obscure topic you'll think about long after the closing credits.
