I have been a podcast listener and creator since 2005. Every year I find some new shows to listen to and stoppedn some that I tired of. This year I have added some great ones to my playlist.
108.9 The Hawk
Love classic rock radio and improvisation? You’ve found your favorite podcast. Jason Gore and Geoff Garlock weave a tapestry of a fictional classic rock radio station complete with wacky disc jockeys, rock star impressions, wild advertisements set in the fictional always cold town of Val Verde. This most original idea a constantly amusing podcast idea I have heard in years, you deserve to listen.
Apocalypse Soon with Eddie Pepitone
Comedian Eddie Pepitone creates a variety show based on the concept of living in late stage capitalism. Listen to his character sketches in Driving in the Rain, Eau de Pepitone, What Squirrels are Thinking and The Last Newscaster in the World.
The Video Archives Podcast
Quentin Tarantino and Roger Avary relive their time at Video Archives talking about the video titles from the library Tarantino owns from the video store they worked in. A great way to listen to a couple of film nerds.
Weekend at Bergman’s
A showdown between arthouse films and mainstream movies. Brett Boham and Joe Cilio review and choose which of the two enter the canon or the trash canon. One of the best movie podcasts around.
The Rest is History
A couple of Brits talk history. Fun banter and interesting facts make this show sing. Great show for history buffs.
We Have Concerns
Jeff Cannata and Anthony Carboni host a comedy science podcast. They talk interesting ideas and concepts from the science world.
Strange Year: A Strange History Podcast
Every week a year on the calendar spotlights a strange news item of interest. Great short podcast is really full of things you may have never heard of.
In addition to those shows, I started a podcast with my buddy Clay. Unsocial Spectators, we talk about Generation X culture and what we’ve been watching lately. Check it out when you get the chance.
