My name is Joshua Topolsky and I have a new podcast called What Future.


But I want to tell you that I'm being forced by my producer to record a promo telling you about my show.


And I'm not trying to force you to listen to it.


And maybe you're not interested in internet culture and the future of life on planet Earth.


And why John Carpenter movies are so good.


You may just want to listen to a podcast about, I don't know, sports or whatever Joe Rogan talks about.


And that's fine, you know, no judgment.


But if you like what you're hearing and I know that you do, you can listen to all of what future on the I Heart Radio app, Apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts.


Hi, I'm Elfira Eisenberg. I'm a comedian and a parent of the absurdity of telling jokes late at night and then waking up early with a small child in the morning.


I have a new podcast called Parenting is a joke. I'll talk to other funny people who are also parents.


Will we be laughing? Will we be crying? Find out by listening to Parenting is a joke on the I Heart Radio app, Apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts.


I'm Danish Forrest, host of Stealing Superman, a new I Heart original podcast about the most unlikely art heist of all time.


It was Nick Cage's own personal national treasure. At a 1999 New Year's Eve party, someone snatched Cage's priceless comics.


But who? Listen to Stealing Superman on the I Heart Radio app, Apple podcasts or wherever you find your favorite shows.

The woman in the jail cell was proving to be a problem.


It was November 13, 1942, and she derived in San Juan de las Abadaysas the day before.


She was discovered at the train station with three strange men. When the Spanish officers demanded to see their passports, none of them could produce one.


The woman was separated from the group and thrown into a cold, isolated cell. The notes in her arrest file only deepened the mystery of her identity.


Her Spanish was formal, her accent sounded French to their ears, and her request singular.
