Karen’s Mashups-Show 17-Just for Fun

It’s a busy time of the year for many of us, so on this show we’re going to take a little break and listen to some podcasts just for fun! (No school-related content this time.) There are podcasts about almost every leisure activity you can imagine from movie reviews to cooking, travel to sports, comedy to knitting.


I hope you enjoy the podcasts we’ve included here and take the opportunity to look for a podcast about your own favorite activities. Happy holidays!

Included in this show are:

Epicurious: Food and Drink

This is a series of video podcasts from Epicurious magazine. They are produced weekly and include useful features such as how to caramelize sugar, how to stuff a turkey, and how to open a bottle of champagne. They are short (most under 2 minutes) and easy to follow, and having them in a video format is very helpful.

New York Times Book Review

If you don’t have time to read the New York Times Book Review every week, this podcast is a great way to catch up. The podcasts air weekly and are generally about 20 minutes long.

Tourcaster Audio Tours

This group produced audio tours of a large variety of popular cities on 6 continents. Some are free; others have a fee associated and include more in-depth information, including maps.
