i’m surprised there aren’t more mentions of Welcome To Nightvale. i love that damn podcast, it’s so fun. i also like 99% Invisible, and one of the things that keeps me subbed to that is that it’s short. i subscribe to WAY too many podcasts, and ones that are 30 mins or less i tend to keep after awhile – longer ones i might skip if my time is too short.
i also like Hello From The Magic Tavern, which is hard to describe but it makes me laugh every episode, so there ya go.
i also listen to Slate’s Culture Gabfest and their Political Gabfest religiously (the former so i can yell at Stephen Metcalf, the latter so i can gush over my podcast boyfriend, John Dickerson).
the New York Times Fiction podcast is cool, if you like listening to an hour or so of various authors reading works either by themselves or other authors, and then discussing them with the host.
Studio 360 is great for all things culture
and there’s a new one i recently came across called “Between The Liner Notes” that covers music history. the 2-parter about the history of disco was fantastic.
i know i have more…
