So, yeah, I love podcasts. Love, love, love them. The world of podcasts is this incredibly exciting, exhilarating world where any kind of entertainment you want is at your fingertips: music, news, comedy, drama, cultural criticism, political commentary, sports talk, history, trivia, advice, philosophy, spirituality, and, of course, sex. There’s quite literally, I would guess, not a niche out there that isn’t represented by some sort of podcast.
One of the most amazing things about podcasts? They’re FREE. A large portion of them anyway. All it takes is an iTunes subscription (or some other kind of subscription) and every morning you wake up with a boatload of entertainment that has magically appeared on your computer or media device without you having to pay anything at all. I hate these kinds of things, but I have to say it: the future of mass media is in the world of podcasting.
In this new project, I’ll be talking about a lot of podcasts. I’ll be bringing up award-winning podcasts, my favorites and, in a few cases, truly awful podcasts (you knew I’d have to do it, right?).
Don’t feel restricted to talking about the podcasts I bring up; I’m kind of treating this as a hosted discussion from my end, but post about the podcasts you’re listening to as well. If you listen to a podcast on a regular basis, post about each episode as you hear it. Let’s discuss the latest episodes, the classic episodes, the unfortunately defunct and exciting debuts.
In my next big post, I’ll be bringing up a wonderful informative history podcast that is, beautifully, complete, allowing you to download every episode and in, just a handful of hours, be incredibly informed on a fascinating period of history.
For now, what are some of your favorites?
