My go-to favorites are Snap Judgment (I love Glynn Washington's voice SO MUCH) and the Moth story hour. This American Life is a weekly listen. My podcast obsession started, of course, with Serial (I think he's innocent). But what else should I be hearing?
I enjoyed The Mystery Show and also Invisibilia. sometimes I listen to Throwing Shade, Fresh Air, and, occasionally, In Our Time and Stuff You Missed in History Class. I can sometimes get into The Longest Shortest Time. I started Limetown, but David and I decided to wait until the first season is complete because we are binge listeners and this business of waiting weeks for the next episode is too much for us.
Recently, my friend Erin told us about the Black Tapes podcast, which is a fictional investigation into paranormal activity. It's highly entertaining but kind of scary--sometimes it has me seeing shadowy figures everywhere! I'm almost finished with season one, and then what will I do on my drive to work?
So any other recommendations? I like good stories, nerdy stuff, and spin offs of anything nerdy and good.
