Podcasts You May Listen in 2018


We are all having playlist in our Spotify, Apple Music, you name it. In this matter, ears are very easy to catch the knowledge then why we stuck in just listen to the music or even listen to your favorite subscriptions on YouTube? Podcast isn’t a new thing but for me I started listening to podcasts last year in early 2017. And I found it very enjoyable and easy to digest. Here are some podcasts that you may want or consider to listen / subscribes in 2018:

TED Radio Hour

Yeah for sure this is for those who watch TEDx talks. Listen to them instead when you’re on your way to office or between meeting hopping presented by Guy Raz, recent episodes include how Big Data will reshape the world and why we lie. Pretty common… in TED senses.

Sunday Movie: Brimstone


Set in wide-open-19th-century spaces, it’s a two-and-a-half-hour sadomasochistic Western domestic horror film divide in four chapters. The theme of film is about the evil of incest. Dutch-immigrant preacher from hell, Guy Pearce and Dakota Fanning starring as his daughter, who he explicitly wants to marry.


Which he thinks it’s God’s will, he cites the Bible story of Lot and his daughters to prove it. The film opens with chapter one called Revelation, when a frontier wife – Fanning – plays Liz with a daughter and stepson; she’s also mute, speaks in sign language. The hell of Liz started when the family goes to church and the new preacher shows up. The preacher is called the Reverend.


Liz knows she and her family are in great danger. Wrongly accused of a crime she didn’t commit, Liz is hunted by vengeful Preacher telling Liz that he has to punish her.

Brimstone is that the more the film moves into the past, the closer it gets into heart of darkness. When domestic sexual abuse of the past of life brings the future punishment and judgement of the lone survivor, Liz, but then Reverend calls it “love”. Such a one creepy spark of grotesque suspense.

The theme may be termed sexuality abusive, is that incest of demon of any of young girl could imagine of her very-own-home-nightmares.

Have you told me as many funny things?
Or are you having fun?
Bitter coffee and sugar cookies,
dandelions, and juicy grapes,
denim jacket and red silk,
memories, and what it’ll become
Have you just forgotten
everything that passed?


Once, or twice, in a thrice

Puff, it’s gone.

“Yesterday love was such an easy game to play. Now I need a place to hide away. Oh, I believe in yesterday.”
