Normal Not Normal

This week for the Spotcast Sunday feature, I am reviewing the society & culture podcast, Normal Not Normal. This show debuted in April 2020. There are 34 episodes available to listen to at the time of writing. The following overview is provided from the Apple Podcast page: James and Oliver Phelps (aka Fred and George Weasley) talk to a star-studded selection of friends, colleagues and personal heroes who stepped into the limelight at a young age, and find out what “normal” means to them. As identical twins who grew up on the Harry Potter film set as Fred and George Weasley, you could never say that the pair had a “normal” start to life. But recently, they’ve been thinking: what does “normal” mean anyway? Ready your ears for behind-the-scenes Potter revelations; outrageous rants; frank conversations about mental health; and even the odd, ‘did-you-know?’ Stabl production (Formerly the Double Trouble podcast).

I really like how this podcast has evolved. You can tell that James and Oliver have gotten more comfortable in their podcasting. Their interviews feel less rigid and formal now which makes them more enjoyable to listen to. I really like the messaging behind their podcast. I also like how they are willing to speak about their own mental help. Given their platform, they are helping younger generations feel okay acknowledging when things may not be okay. I highly recommend this podcast to anyone who wants to feel less alone in the world and those that need to hear that none of us live a “normal” life.

I give this podcast 4 out of 5 stars.

Tomorrow for the Movie Monday feature, I am reviewing the animation film, Sailor Moon: Eternal. Next week for the Spotcast Sunday feature, I am reviewing the language podcast, 6-minute Vocabulary. Until then keep listening on; Nerd out!
