This podcast decided to go the long route to put into context the Space Program. And it has payed off. Everybody always points out to Kennedy's speech as the beginning of politics and space exploration. But this episode is all about the behind the scenes "realpolitik" between Johnson and Eisenhower that lead to the creation of NASA.
This podcast explores all the now classic (and bombs) of the crowded year of 1999. But this is the first of a spinoff mini series where they venture into TV shows. Starting with cult classic Freaks and Geeks with the great Alan Sepinwall.
The genre of bad movie podcast is by now a staple of the comedy podcast genre. This is a new spin on the genre that instead of discussing movies. It explores bad Video Games. Heather Ann Campbell and Nick Wiger (of Doughboys) are a great pair of hosts that keep the show moving. This episode is all about the Dreamcast oddity Seaman. The perfect insane game for this podcast.
It finally is here. One of the most hyped audio dramas in a while. And it doesn't disappoint. The cast that includes Kelly Marie-Tran (Star Wars) and Patti LuPone (!) is excellent. And the behind the scenes includes a murderers row of talented podcasters including John Scott Dryden (Tumanbay; LifeAfter), Lauren Shippen (The Bright Sessions), Mark Henry Phillips (Homecoming; Serial) and Mara Wilson (Big Hero 6; Matilda!) and Kevin Rodriguez (Deadly Class) promises more thrills ahead. Even if you don't listen to audio dramas I recommend this as an entry point.
On this episode the host reads a lot of positive and negative reviews which is a shame as I realized that the negative reviews were on point. The host is a newbie on podcasting and has no idea of what the podcast is. Which is a shame as is the only show talking about this topic.
Reply All is not the same anymore. This episode is plagued with Decompression issues. Twenty Thousand Hertz would have done a tighter version of this story. When NPR/Gimlet shows try to be funny is definitely one of my biggest podcast pet peeves.
This episode is all about the inequality of Health Care that has been part of the system pretty much from the start. They mentioned Tuskegee briefly at the end of the episode. For a more in depth exploration the American Scandal podcast recently wrapped a Tuskegee series of episodes.
I have always found this case tragic and absolutely insane. If you recently watched the HBO miniseries Chernobyl (and its companion podcast) this is the American case that you need to know more about. This will be part of my upcoming Curated List "The Art of the Scam 3: Scam With A Vengeance".
This podcast is back with new episodes! I definitely found intriguing when the guest discussed how interesting design ends up being creating spaces only for wealthy people. In this episode they talked about the concept of co-living. Pretty much dorm rooms for millenials that want to live in the city without breaking the banks.
Season 3 of Prognosis is discussing the rising threat of antibiotic resistant bacteria. This particular episode tells the story of how this rising threat has brought renew interest in a Soviet Union therapy involving viruses. This episode will be included in my upcoming curated List "The Invisible Kingdom: All About Microbes"
Very meta episode for this platform @mm @danny. I also feel so validated because I knew all the podcasts she mentions (except for that cat one WTF). I also feel a kinship when she mentions she is over Reply All.
Great 8 part miniseries. It is a nice primer of the work on DeepMind and AI.I would listen to this and then listen to Sleepwalkers for a more in-depth counterpoint and/or companion podcast series. Also Hannah Fry has a nicest voice in podcasting. I wish she was the voice of every podcast.
One of my favorite episodes of the year. A great simple (and complex) and tight narrative about the beginnings of American Music and its evolution with a lot of subtext on cultural appropriation, minorities on media etc. I spend the week listening to a lot of aspiring indie podcasts and more creators should listen to this episode as a masterclass for crafting a podcast episode with concise storytelling and efficient editing.
Great new audio drama starring Natalie Morales (Abby’s, Parks and Rec). If you liked the audio drama Bubble you will like this. The dialogue is definitely a breath of fresh air on the audio drama genre.
