And Now For Something Completely Different: Podcasts

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
  • Lore
  • Murderville + GA
  • Myths & Legends
  • Our Fake History
  • The Angel of Vine
  • Unobscured
  • 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.
