The first Friday of every month we will be featuring a new podcast that we’re listening to here at C. Crane. Our hopes are that we expose you to something new that you may have not heard of before and something you may enjoy.
What we’re listening to — The Way I Heard It with Mike Rowe
If you’re tired of debate and posturing, here’s someone who’s so down to earth, tongue and cheek, and actually talking about things that matter, but even more importantly – doing something and giving you a way to do something too!
You may recognize the name Mike Rowe from the show he hosted Dirty Jobs on Discovery Channel. His podcast is 10 minutes and it’s kind of a Paul Harvey “rest of the story” about a real person, place or thing with a little twist. You can listen directly on the link below, or subscribe and listen through iTunes, Google Play, Stitcher.
A shameless ad for his podcast.
Mike is also great in other ways. He has a Facebook show Returning the Favor where he travels across the United States in search of people who are giving back to their communities. At the end of each episode, those being profiled get surprised with a reveal that allows them to do even more of whatever kind of good work they are doing.
Here’s something that might resonate with some of you Video of Mike Rowe exposing the scam of college and student loans. We’re not looking to debate whether education is important, we believe in education but we also believe in fiscal responsibility and we believe that hard work is important and college isn’t necessarily for everyone (especially if it means being burdened with a debt you could never repay).
He has a great foundation too, Mike Rowe Works Foundation to help support folks who want to go into skilled trades and labor.

Wow! I never knew until now just what other things Mike Rowe is involved in. Thanks for the link!
I listen to several during the day while at work, radiofree redoubt and the Hagmann report are 2
I really enjoy “The Daily” from the NYTimes; it’s always informative, often entertaining, a great example of traditional print media branching out into “radio.”

I religiously listen to TWIT… “This Week In Tech….” and their many other podcasts.
I listen to Dan Bongino’s podcasts each and every day! Some of them, I listen to more than once. The podcasts of Mark Levin, Andrew Klavan, Michael Knowles and Ben Shapiro are also excellent. I work outside and I record the previous day’s podcasts on my MP3 player. I listen to them through earbuds. I find this to be an excellent way to stay informed on current events!
I listen to the morning and afternoon news podcasts rather than the caustic commercial newscasts on FOX and/or CNN.
I listen to the Sky and Telescope podcasts and am currently listening to Spanish to learn a second language.
Cuirrently, I am only listening to “Todays Homeowner” by Danny Lipford. I am looking for others of this type.
Love CCrane and Mike Rowe!
“The Way I Heard It” reminds me the catch-phrase of a character, The Old Timer, on the old-time radio show, “Fibber McGee and Molly: “…it ain’t the way I heard it”.
