Let’s get our budgets balanced this weekend with “Diversifying.” Host Delyanne Barros, who you may know as @delyannethemoneycoach on TikTok, made this podcast for anyone who feels like the financial system is against them. She and guests are talking all things personal finance and pulling yourself out of bad situations. From student loans to crippling debt, she’s just getting started on her new podcast “Diversifying.”
Too Long; Didn’t Watch
Rolling Stone Chief TV Critic Alan Sepinwall watches only the pilot and finale of über-popular and groundbreaking television series with celebrity guests. In what other podcast can you hear Jon Hamm watch the first and last episode of Gossip Girl and guess what happens in the numerous episodes in between? In “Too Long; Didn’t Watch,” hear actors assume what happened in shows they’ve never seen. Hear Kumail Nanjiani watch Veronica Mars, Nick Offerman and Megan Mullally watch My So-Called Life, and most admirably, hear Alison Brie try to guess what could possibly happen to get Game of Thrones through its first and last episodes.
If you’re looking for something to binge this weekend, check out the new comedy fiction podcast “Classified.” In QCODE’s series, assassin Ivan Harris is undergoing treatment at Ravenholm Institute – although he thinks he’s perfectly sane. But the enigmatic Doctor Bell believes Ivan to be delusional and must continue his treatment plan of painful procedures, therapy, and full time surveillance. The cunning Ivan has a different plan though, and with the help of fellow patients devises his escape.
