Well, it’s time for more of that “books are only the beginning” thing, and I’m going to talk to you a little about podcasts.
If you’d told me last year that I would be listening to about 9 podcasts on the regular, I probably would have scoffed. If you’d told me that I would’ve spent the equivalent of two straight weeks listening to podcasts in 2018 (starting about June, so not the entirety of 2018), I would’ve said you were crazy.
I want to spend a few weeks talking about the podcasts I’ve been listening to over the past year and why I like them. It’s not going to take very long, because I don’t have a super long list yet. After the initial post run, I probably won’t write another post until I’ve found and listened to almost the entirety of a new podcast.
I’m not going to introduce a podcast this week, but I am going to give you a quick run-down of what podcasts you can look forward to me talking about in the future:
- Aaron Mahnke’s Cabinet of Curiosities
- Adventures in New America
- Alice Isn’t Dead
- Beach Too Sandy, Water Too Wet
- Birmingham Barons X-Wing Podcast
- Murderville + GA
- Myths & Legends
- Our Fake History
- The Angel of Vine
- Welcome to Night Vale
Out of this entire list, the only podcast that I’m not caught up on is the Myths & Legends podcast, because I started that one out a few years too late. All the other ones I’ve listened to in their entirety since June 2018. (I’ve got a long and boring commute.)
I’m excited to share my favorite podcasts with you. To those of you who haven’t gotten into podcasts yet, I like them because they’re similar to books, just in smaller chunks. Some have an overarching story (like chapters of a book) such as Welcome to Night Vale, while others have a different story every week like Lore. I have a good mix of fiction and non-fiction podcasts, and I hope I’m able to introduce you to something new.
If you have any questions, or if you have a podcast suggestion for me, let me know in the comments!
And as always, keep reading.
