The 5 Best Podcasts Of 2017

Do you ever get into the car to go to work or school or to run errands and you don’t want to listen to the radio because they repeat the same songs on a loop? You don’t want to drive in complete silence with all the noisy cars and unnecessary beeping of horns because one driver got cut off by another. If you have this problem, you should try listening to podcasts!

There are so many podcasts on this earth that cover various different topics. Too many to choose from. So, in honor of International Podcast Day, we are going to take a look at some of the best podcasts of 2017.

5. Modern Love by Meghna Chakrabarti

To the experienced cocktail-bar fan, some things about the new place on Macdougal Street in Greenwich Village will be familiar: the hard-to-find entrance, the cramped subterranean quarters, the need for reservations, the turntable and the collection of old vinyl. Other details may ring fewer bells, if any: the 7-course #izakaya menu, the preponderance of sake, the song index you’re handed along with the #cocktail menu. This is @tokyorecordbar, a creative homage to a type of bar, common in Japan, where the aural is as important as the oral. Customers can choose a record to be played in addition to their drinks and food. The bar, which has only 16 seats and a low ceiling laced with paper #cherryblossoms, opened at the end of August. The photographer @anrizzy visited earlier this month while on assignment for @nytfood. Visit the link in our profile to read more.
