I love podcasts. I’ve talked about this a lot. But my list of podcasts is ever changing, so every so often, I like to do an update of what I’m listening to.
My current jams are:
The Baby-Sitters Club Club – Jack and Tanner are hilarious. Two 30-something guys reading and reviewing The Baby-Sitters Club books. But if you read these in the 90’s, trust me, there’s so much subtext you missed, and Jack and Tanner will help you find it. (Or maybe they’re just making it up for entertainment.) Either way, these are a riot and totally worth the listen.
Wolf 359 – This is a fiction podcast, set in a space station. Small cast, incredible acting, epic writing. It’s what I would call a dramedy. Definitely start this one from the beginning. I’ve actually listened to the story twice through. The show wraps up this year, and I’m alternately excited to see how it ends and sad that it will be ending.
The Bright Sessions – Another fiction podcast, this one about a psychologist and her paranormal patients. Really great listen.
Radiolab Presents: More Perfect – This is Radiolab’s Supreme Court show. They go into depth on current Supreme Cases and former Supreme Court cases and explain why they’re important now and what they mean for us. And Radiolab‘s main podcast is pretty good too.
Reply All – This one’s new to my list. They describe themselves as a podcast “about people who shape the internet and how the internet shapes people.” There are some absolutely fascinating stories here.
Sawbones – This show will likely forever be on my list. Take an entertaining trip through medical history. It’s amazing what we thought might cure our ailments.
This isn’t an exhaustive list, but it’s the podcasts that I listen to almost immediately when a new episode pops into my app. There are others that may rise back to the top over the next few months, so I’m sure I’ll have an update then.
Any podcasts I should be listening to?
