“New Mindset, Who Dis?” host Case Kenny joined Podsauce this week for an enlightening conversation on mental health and wellness. Case shared his approach to relatable topics on his self-help podcast, his sources of inspiration including Instagram, and why he believes self-awareness is one of the keys to life. Case emphasized mindfulness and shared his definition with hosts Dax and Alesha.
Alesha shared this week’s Murder Most Foul pick, “Families Who Kill: The Donut Shop Murders.” This story chronicles the notorious McCrary family that killed 20 people and evaded law enforcement for years. In the 1970s, the patriarch and son-in-law began their killing spree and found most of their victims in donut shops across America. Start the series from episode 1 to hear the chronologically chilling chain of events. Later in the podcast, audio tapes from a family member’s confession can be heard, recorded when he was serving a life sentence in Colorado.
Dax’s pick of the week is Wondery’s “Sports Wars” hosted by Sports Illustrated and SB Nation’s Dan Rubenstein. Each season unpacks different athletes’ rivalries. There are seasons covering Tyson vs. Holyfield, Tiger Woods vs. The Field, Aaron Rodgers vs. Brett Favre, and Kobe vs. Shaq. Dax listened to season 6 all about Serena vs. Venus that broke down their battles on and off the tennis court. If you’re into sports and famous feuds, this series is for you!
