Thought this would be nice to have since podcasts are huge right now. Every Tom, Dick and Harry now thinks the world can't be deprived of their opinions and starts a podcast.

I've been a fan of My Favorite Murder since almost the first episode, but their fan base is almost intolerable now. I just miss having the facebook ground in the beginning with a couple hundred people posting links to things they found interesting. It's gotten out of control. The whole Tipi incident recently seems like it was ridiculous, did anyone get the full story there? I get the Tipi part of it, but what about racist people in the group or something? I don't know how much longer before Karen snaps and turns on the fans completely. It already kind of happened that one time someone called them racist. I think they are ill informed sometimes and misspeak, but I don't think they're racist or insensitive at all.
My other beef is with Karen and Georgia themselves. It's getting pretty tired to have to listen to them brag about how this is their job now and they can't believe it, and also complain about having to do the bare minimum of work. Basically their full time job is reading one wikipedia article a week and even that seems like too much for them sometimes and they make Steven do all their lackey work. I like their personalities but there are other True Crime podcasts that put it 10x the work and research they do. Even their minisodes feel lazy. The most recent one they said they got over 600 emails on the subject, and they only read what, 4 of them? They couldn't be bothered to do a longer minisode even though they were getting paid to advertise a movie? It just seems so disrespectful to all the fans.
Also Georgia, you don't need to brag about how gross you are all the time and constantly belch into the mic. Have 1% of decorum. Not everyone is into that.

I love YMRT! I've listened to the series on Charles Manson several times now. I also really liked the series on dead blondes.
You might like "The Daily Zeitgeist" too if you like The Daily. It's another daily news show, but they basically have comedians on everyday as guests. Miles can be a little annoying and talks about weed a lot, but they're both super politically smart and funny guys. I might just have a giant crush on Jack O'Brien though (he used to be the head of Cracked/host of the Cracked podcast) and left to do this podcast. He's a qtpie
I honestly relate to Karen a lot lol, Georgia annoys me more and more but I still love them both. Karen definitely seems more sensible and more grounded than Georgia and doesn't take any bullshit and seems to be annoyed by the fan base's antics (which same). I feel like Georgia blows her ditsy/gross/anxiety-ridden character out of proportion, like I always feel like she's purposefully mispronouncing things….
I thought about going to a local meet up but soon realized everyone in my regional fb group is a ridiculous SJW who blows any slight slip up out of proportion (even by my standards, and you can tell by my original post that I'm a lib).
I'm glad they've found success, but like you said their episodes feel really lazy as of late (granted Karen seems to do a bit more research) but hopefully since their book is finished things will improve! Monday's minisode annoyed the shit out of me honestly haha

I started listening to Last Podcast on the Left because for some reason the name sounded familiar when it was suggested to me. I’ve never been into true crime and occult shit but damn if I haven’t listened to every episode of their show. When I listened to the older ones there was a lot of “bro humor” but they’ve gotten much bigger and have attuned the show to be more inclusive with their audience. The boys that host it are usually pretty hilarious and are so entertaining. They also don’t miss a fact or important detail in the entire story. I think the most interesting episodes are the newest jonestown ones, the one about the rich kids who killed their own parents ( I can’t remember their names) and just about any of the “heavy hitters” (Gacy, Dahmer, Ramirez). A lot of those are series of three episodes so there’s hundreds to listen to if you end up liking them like I did.

Ugh, I'm so glad to hear you were annoyed by it too. I get that being shitty to Steven is their bit, but at this point he's definitely doing waaay more work than they are. Going through 600+ emails for them to read 4? I actually joined their Fancult in the hopes it would be less crazy people, but the UI is absolute garbage. Yeah, Karen definitely feels more grounded, I guess cause she's actually had to work hard and prove herself in the industry? And has some self-control going through AA and everything. Georgia just seems like she did a lot of drugs and dropped out of several schools and…I'm still not really sure how she ended up where she did. It must suck for Allie Ward to watch her be successful doing nothing and drinking all day bragging about how great her life is, when Allie has to bust her ass on her podcast and TV show. I stan Allie so much harder, she's really worked for her success and is so much smarter than Georgia. If the show goes under, Georgia's fucked. Karen can go back to writing and comedy.
I'm too afraid to go to any meetups too. I feel like it would just be people like pic related, just screaming "STEEEVAN!"
File: 1534994943748.jpg (158.92 KB, 630x630, allie_and_georgia.jpg)
Sage for samefag, but also doesn't it kind of feel like Georgia totally ditched Allie for MFM? I could be wrong and it could be totally mutual but basically they just stopped making episodes of it as soon after MFM started and blew up, and she never really mentions Allie anymore.>Allie: Single, hosts time intensive research and interview podcast by herself and Science TV show, travels all the time for both. It also seems like she edits her podcast herself too, because she drops in to do narration/clarify things all over the place. (Podcast is called "Ologies" btw, highly recommend) >Karen: Single, Sober, Hosts MFM, guests on multiple podcasts, works as writer and producer on TV shows, tours the globe for podcast, all at the same time.>Georgia: Hosts a podcast, ditched her original podcast? Sits on the couch and drinks in her pajamas and burps all day? Because anxiety? Unclear. Luckily her husband is their "manager" so he gets to travel with them all over the world when they tour, and seems to just validate her and let her do whatever.
I don't know how Karen lets her get away with all that honestly.
The only two I don't hate in some way at this point:
Who Weekly - Lighthearted D list celebrity news
The Singing Bones - Really underrated show about fairytales. Wish it updated more often.>>17268
Yeah, that one guy who just screams at everything ruins it.

No, not the tall one. I’m pretty sure the annoying one is Henry Zebrowski. While I like the podcast, I have to agree. I cringe when he tries to be funny most of the time. It’s usually in incredibly poor taste. If he was out, it’d probably be more enjoyable. His show sucks too.

Hmm, it seems like there's been a few kind of one off ones I can think of (all fiction)
- The Message
: spooky space aliens and stuff, iirc I really enjoyed this one
: spooky technology, yada yada. Same people who did The Message
: psychology or something? Idk but it's got Oscar Isaac in it
: Town disappearance. Maybe connected to Alice Isn't Dead? I can't quite remember
- The Black Tapes
: spooky paranormal stuff, I enjoyed this one but I kind of dropped off of it because I'm not sure where they're going with it
- The Control Group
- I actually haven't listened to this one yet, but it seems like it's an MK Ultra kind of story. I'm usually pretty happy with things How Stuff Works puts out.
I tried TAZ but it just seemed too confusing for me, also I've never played DnD, but maybe I'll give it another go. I really enjoy the McElroys content, but it's like >>17265
said, I would never go to one of their live shows because their fans are too crazy. I genuinely feel bad for them when they make a joke or mention some celebrity on MBMBAM and they have to stop and be like "hey guys no really don't harass this person/us on twitter". They just seem like they're silly brothers who like making each other laugh who accidentally have hoards of fans. (That being said I do find Travis a lil annoying)
File: 1535052587624.png (280.47 KB, 540x395, ben.png)
Yeah, Night Vale didn't do it for me either. I grew up on NPR and This American Life so I was game on podcasts from the start. I'm glad the WTNV fandom died down because I feel like for years it was>hey anon, whatcha listening to?>oh, a podcast>you mean like Nightvale????>mfw
File: 1535060132311.jpg (15.25 KB, 220x220, S-Town_cover_art.jpg)
I forgot to mention S Town in my post because it was a limited series and I've removed it from my subscriptions. If you decide to listen to it, don't read anything about the show or the premise. Just listen to the first few episodes and see if it's your thing.
ive recently started listening to nightvale again, because the format is perfect for listening to before going to bed and it helps with my insomnia. storywise though, sometimes its a little annoying. i know its supposed to be more fun and "meme-y", but i do wish it took itself a bit more seriously as a horror podcast and was a little less random, because some episodes really have a good atmosphere.
i also started alice isnt dead and the black tapes. alice is okay, its a bit too long for me to listen to a whole episode in one go, especially with the kind of onesided format. the black tapes is okay too, but the format makes it easy to listen to, so i like it.
other than that, i just listen to the art corner sometimes.
Oh, I love mbmbam!
I gave up on game grumps awhile ago and needed something with the same silly humor, and I think the brothers fit it well. I was watching a best of Griffin vid last night and I was in tears.
On another note I really like last podcast on the left but I do think the Henry can get really annoying lmao.(I think his sister is funnier and more bearable tbh) I really like the Dahmer and Aileen episodes. Haven’t listened to them in a while but I heard they did one on incels not too long ago? so I might go back to give that one a listen.

Wow, I'm surprised how many Last Podcast fans there are here. It always seemed like they had a crazy huge fanbase, but I never understood it because everyone I've ever heard talk about it basically says that exact same thing: I like Last Podcast but that one guy sucks. I guess they're in too deep now to get rid of him. Their coverage on Jonestown was some of the most in depth comprehensive I've heard. (And I always jump on Jonestown themed episodes of podcasts, like a crazy person.)
Didn't they have to get rid of their facebook group too because of some shit? Anyone know what happened there or did I make that up? Also do the other guys ever do any work or is it always just Marcus doing all the heavy lifting?>>17279
they're good boys
honestly I just love podcasts where it's the hosts cracking each other up (MBMBAM, Suicide Buddies, The Dollop, Comedy Bang Bang etc)
File: 1535129525697.png (67.12 KB, 300x291, imaaronmankey.png)
Oooh, I love Lore but I do find Aaron Mahnke to be a lil hammy sometimes. But I LOVED the TV show. It doesn't seem like many people talked about it, I hope there's enough interest to get a 2nd season.
My favorite along those lines has been Dark Histories
! Basically the narrator tells the story in a well researched unbiased way, and then afterwards kind of cuts to him sharing his opinions about it. You could skip that part all together if you wanted. But, I like that the storied have more of a real basis, if that makes sense.
File: 1535129933023.jpg (64.41 KB, 318x471, ghostland.jpg)
Oh, samefag but also, Spooked!
is fun. It's from the podcast Snap Judgement
which is also good if you like This American Life type stories, but they always do a series of spooky stories from people around Halloween, and last year they branched off to do a separate podcast where it's just the spooky stories. I've always found the host to be annoying, but I love the stories.
Otherwise if you like more of the historical based/researched tales this is one of my fav audiobooks to listen to around Halloween. Use one of those hot Audible promos they're always giving out on podcasts for a free audiobook (and then cancel it because it's a ripoff)
File: 1535151483558.jpg (39.58 KB, 328x328, 13986.jpg)
Hardcore History - Long, sometimes multi part episodes.
Stuff You Missed In History Class - Light, easy to digest. Kind of like being in history class when you were 13. Massive archive of episodes.
The History Chicks - Similar to the above but more like you're 11 and you're being homeschooled by a midwestern mom. They do their research but their way of speaking bugs me a little.
File: 1535155433855.jpg (130.96 KB, 1000x1000, AL_podcast_badge_1.jpg)
Oh good! I also like DH because he often covers stuff that's less talked about. I recommend the episodes on Adam: The Body in the Thames and The Disappearance of Gary Mathias (If you're interested in Dyatlov Pass like me, this one is great).
I also like Astonishing Legends
. Some of their topics can be kind of hit or miss, but they go pretty in depth. I really like the episodes on Dyatlov Pass, Amelia Earhart, Oak Island, and Skinwalker Ranch, to name a few.>>17286>>17288
I'll also throw in The Dollop
here! It's more of a comedy based history one, but the stories they dig up are absolutely insane. You probably won't like it if you're annoyed by riffing and just want straight forward history though.
File: 1535163617900.gif (2.57 MB, 480x270, justin.gif)
Yeah, Sawbones is fun as well. My only "problems" (I use that phrase very loosely) with it are like when they were doing their usual Maximum Fun drive on all the pods and Sydnee said something like "With your contributions I'm able to do less clinic hours and more podcasting!" which to me feels like….idk should you though? That just seems like kind of a strange thing to me.
Also the episode on breastfeeding where she talks about how she still breastfeeds their 4 year old daughter even though they now have a newborn. I'm not tryna shame anyone or be derisive or anything, and I don't have kids or anything and I know that's a hot topic with parents. Obviously she's very smart and knows what she's talking about but….that just makes me a little squeamish. It seemed like it made Justin a little squeamish too, but he was definitely trying to be supportive and understanding of why she does that. Or maybe he was just squeamish at the idea of her putting that out there for all their fans to know? Idk.
I used to listen to a lot of Pod Save America (following them from Keepin' It 1600) and their other flagship podcasts, but I got frustrated that many of their points felt like retreads and a lot of the guests, who were running for office, were so… rehearsed. This was maybe 30 episodes in, so maybe they've matured further and gotten guests to loosen up? But I still check into Pod Save the World occasionally.
In general, though, I don't listen to political or heavy subject podcasts anymore, since I listen to NPR programs on commute anyway and I'd prefer to read crime since crime podcasts are so long. So, I listen to a bunch of pop culture podcasts when I'm doing chores or exercising or something.
Pretty much all the podcasts' hosts are left-leaning, as a heads-up.
Podcasts analyzing (largely) Western pop music, its production, music theory, and, occasionally, its social context:>Pop Unmuted
Retired since 2016, minus a brief return to talk about the Jonas Brothers. The episode on the delusional fujos of One Direction fandoms is a fucking ride: >http://popunmuted.com/episodes/episode-22-who-is-larry-stylinson/
And, there was a short run of Kpop episodes. Probably the only Kpop related commentary that was strictly about music production and not just the eye candy appeal that I've come across.>Switched on Pop
Very similar to the above, but still running and approaching their 100 episode marker. The current batch of episodes is hitting my 90s and 2000s pop nostalgia. The best production and editing on this list.
Podcasts about bad movies and books (I'd probably listen to ones about bad TV but that's a much harder subject to broach):>I Don't Even Own A Television
Two guys just talking about shitty books (or just plain out weird shit) and following a format of Summary, Things They Liked, Things They Didn't Like, etc. Books range from talk show radio host books aimed at children to pulp novels to 80s rock band memoirs (a special interest of theirs). >The Worst Bestsellers
Two drunk, librarian women just talking about shitty books. They focus more on "chick lit", children's books, and best-sellers like James Patterson('s ghost writers). I wish they had better recording equipment, tbh.>We Hate Movies
The most comedic of all the podcasts listed, but it's like a bunch of guys in their 40s, which can be hit or miss understandably. I fucking love their mailbag episodes, though–those genuinely get a laugh out of me. They have a pretty extensive archive (with the earliest few hundred and some specialized episodes being under a Patreon lock, but that's pretty easy to get around) and cover so much stuff.
File: 1535171693050.jpeg (400.58 KB, 1500x1500, teencreeps.jpeg)
Oooh….that music one sounds great. Have you ever tried Teen Creeps? It's another Literature one, 2 girls reading YA Fiction. I haven't kept up with them lately but I loved their episodes on V. C. Andrews books cause they're so wild. Their episodes also tend to be pretty long since they go through the whole book, if that's what you're into.

I love this podcast and I promote it every chance I can get LOL. It's actually really well done and I found it when I was going through so much in highschool and it helped me stay distracted. It's a really long podcast (Though obviously it is finished, though there is a spin-off that is also finished). If you like Zombie stories you'd love this one. The name is obviously pic related (We're Alive)
>> Horror Stories
I just found this one kinda, but it's the No Sleep podcast. Some of them are really scary and the voice actors are really good! Most of them are like Reddit stories (obv /r/nosleep) but some are just regular horror stories. I'd recommend that too!
Lmao yeah but then she shouldn't have wasted all those years and money going to medical school to learn a valuable trade she's going to abandon when something more fun pops up. Most people become doctors because they want to help people.
There ARE people whose jobs it is in the medical field is to just do research. If it was about that she could just do that. But it's not, she's choosing the thing that makes her more famous and grows her fanbase.
It's also to me saying "I could make great money as a doctor, but I'd rather the FANS pay me a doctor's wage for less work."
File: 1535260495332.jpeg (79.05 KB, 700x713, timesucklogo_lg.jpeg)
I'm a fan of Timesuck with Dan Cummins.
He covers a really wide range of topics (from Area 51 to the dark web to presidential assassinations and even random historical events) but keeps it interesting throughout. It has a great fanbase too.
File: 1535264334785.png (6.94 KB, 220x220, 99pi.svg.png)
Reread what I wrote. I said not every doctor pursues their career out of a genuine desire to change the world and make it a better place or whatever. Never said her podcast made an impact. I'd take reading wiki articles over dealing with WV crackheads any day.
Anyway, I've been listening to 99% Invisible lately. It's about architecture, design, and infrastructure. One episode, for example, focuses on the inflatable things in car lots and why they're so commonplace now.
File: 1535314707616.png (78.91 KB, 598x349, screenshot.png)
Sorry, you're right, my bad.
Also why is this the funniest shit? Kim's being dragged all over twitter for being 4 years late.
Gosh, it's been so long since I listened to it, but I don't think Adnan killed Hae. I think Jay had something to do with whatever happened though. There have also been other podcasts that covered it since that covered some of the evidence that wasn't touched on in Serial and how the cell phone tower evidence made no sense and how Adnan's lawyer was basically out of her mind at the time and totally botched another trial right around his as well, and iirc died shortly after his trial because she was that ill. Based on just Serial though, I could see where it would be unclear. I don't remember all the details exactly, but really what it comes down to is that his trial should have been thrown out for how poorly his lawyer represented him and all the cell phone shit. >>17306
I don't think it has anything to do with her being late, to me it speaks to how truly up her own ass she is all the time because it seems like it would be impossible to not hear about it, especially if you're on the internet all the time. It's also her phrasing, if she had said "I just started listening to Serial and I love it!" that would be fine, but she's acting like it's this hip underground thing that she discovered. It's like>Hey I just started reading Harry Potter and it's great!
vs>Have you guys ever heard of this book called Harry Potter?!

I feel like it's pretty obvious since it finished up its first arc a WHILE ago but I have not loved another podcast as much as I fucking love TAZ. Balance was amazing, and I love Amnesty so far.
If you like funny DND podcasts, listen to it. It's like my favorite podcast of all time. Gold star.

Listening to today's episode and Georgia brags about not drinking for 2 days in a row, but then says she couldn't sleep because of it. You know, for a show that loves to point out "RED FLAGS" (Georgia especially) it seems like they sure are missing the giant red flag that Georgia might have a drinking problem. I wonder if that's ever come up between her and Karen, since Karen's sober now. She would know the signs, and also with Georgia's drug/rehab history?
Yeah, that's what I thought too. I don't know how Karen can share her horror stories about being an alcoholic when she was younger and Georgia can think it's fine to say shit like that? Or to joke about it? Is it just a hallmark of some alcoholics to be like "well I'm not mean or destructive when I'm drunk, so therefore I don't have a drinking problem"? How does she not realize she has an addictive personality by now?>I've had eating disorders and have done every single hard drug and had to go to rehab when I was a child/teenager basically….but it's not a problem if I can't function unless I drink in my pajamas every single day! Because anxiety!!!
She's definitely self-medicating with alcohol. Her therapist or Karen or Vince need to shut that down.

Huh. So LPOTL and MFM facebooks had to be shut down, the Sword & Scale one had a ton of drama too didn't it? Or was that the Reddit? That's a little different though because Mike Boudet was starting half the drama by being a giant weiner. Didn't he get kicked out of the MFM group after like 30 seconds for being creepy back in the day? kek
Who would have thought that people who like murder would end up being crazy?

Is it just MFM and the Mcelroys that have this crazy of a fanbase, or am I not remembering others? Nightvale of course but that seems to have died down.
Also MFM's minisode was 17 mins today with commercials? Gimme a break. They should just quit if it's that much of a chore.
i mean, imo it's better than the generic cecils and carlos' we saw.
And it's better than just putting on a button up. They have some signature outfits you can do.

Their big huge Halloween episode with 7000 people was so awkward. Georgia picking the McMartin preschool trial was such a terrible call. So uncomfortable to hear the audience silence while they try to come up with jokes about child molestation.
Honestly, how long until MFM crashes and burns? Karen and Georgia both have such strong personalities I can't imagine it can't be somewhere on the horizon. Considering how huge they are and whatever happened with Allie and Georgia's friendship breaking up AND Georgia's husband being their "manager", it can only be a matter of time.
My prediction is Karen will walk away. She has a real job and a life she can go back to, she doesn't need this shit. Georgia has made both herself and her husband completely dependent on it, and still can barely put any effort into it.
I've been listening to Oh No Ross and Carrie a lot lately. It's a duo who try out religions, paranormal investigations and spirituality to talk about their experience and how legit they think it is. I started with their episodes on Scientology and it got me hooked. What I like about them is that they're skeptics but they're very open so they don't dismiss things straight away. It really satisfies my curiosity about these religions without getting sucked into a cult myself lol.
I'd love some suggestions for similar podcasts.>>17280
I've seen the YouTube videos for this and I can't believe there's a podcast too!
I think the show's lost a lot of what made it so entertaining as time has gone on and it's become more popular but it's still pretty good.
Any opinions on it getting a TV version?
I didn't think I'd ever want a Britney Spears podcast in my life but now I know I need it.
Their whole thing is just so fucking dumb and they make an obscene amount of money on Patreon. It's ridiculous. As someone who works in/studies politics it's obnoxious to hear people who don't know what they're talking about shell out their uneducated hot takes. Their fanbase is cultish and the blind Bernie worship is fucking weird.
If you're interested in liberal politics I'd recommend Pod Save America, Pod Save the World, Lovett or Leave It, and other podcasts from Crooked Media. They actually know what they're talking about
im not going to sit here and say chapo is the best thing ever because they are kind of reddit-ish and irritating, but to promote pod save america related media is absolutely beyond the limits of spastic cretinism. they are fucking neoliberal obama lackies tbh…
redscare anna is annoying sometimes but if youre slavic and leftist and actually care about things girls like its fun to listen to.
my personal favorite podcasts on the iphone podcast app thing are:
new books in philosophy
slavoj zizek - collected recordings

Yeah, MBMBAM is one of my go to comfy podcasts, but I would never speak aloud that I'm a fan because their fanbase is batshit insane. I just finished TAZ as well, and I enjoyed it just fine but TAZ fans are somehow even more insane than just the MBMBAM ones?>>20064
PUTJ is amazing. I agree Miel can be kind of obnoxious, but Demi is SO talented it makes up for it. I started listening to Gilmore Guys and PUTJ just because I was such a fan of him on Twitter. The "It Wasn't Me" punch up is one of my personal favs>>17320>comfy podcast recommendations
Not sure what you consider comfy, but as someone who loves non-fiction/historical/science/true crime podcasts, I kind of consider the comfy ones ones I don't have to think much about, or aren't particularly heavy or political….if that makes sense. Here's some of my favs:>Gilmore Guys: a comfy classic, but watching the show along with them helps. 2 silly dudes going through every episode of Gilmore Girls>MBMBAM: silly dudes answering silly questions. If you can ignore their batshit fanbase, it's a comfy staple>Punch Up the Jam: see >>20064>Mother May I Sleep With Podcast?: podcast about absurd Lifetime movies. I've never watched a single one of the movies and I still enjoy the podcast>Plz Advise: same host as MMISWP, they take calls and give advice>Why Won't You Date Me?: comedian Nicole Byer and trying to figure out her dating life>How Did This Get Made?: one of the OG bad movie podcasts>Mysteries Abound: I can barely tell you what this one is about because I put it on when I'm trying to sleep and I usually pass out. Basically a soothing Australian man reads weird articles.>Sleep With Me Podcast: similar to MA, a guy rambles on nonsense to help you fall asleep>The Dollop: one comedian reads an absurd story from history to another comedian who has never heard it. History and learnin' but real silly.
I can also give an absurdly long list of recommendations for non-fiction/historical/science/true crime podcasts if anyone wants those.
Any Suicide Buddies fans here? I love those dudes. I feel like it's a podcast that only works for a very specific type of person (the most extreme version of using comedy as a coping mechanism for depression/suicidal thoughts) but if you happen to be in that venn diagram it's amazing.

Really wish this thread was more active, cause there's so many podcasts I wanna gossip about.
Anyways, sure seems like Miel is butthurt about Demi leaving PUTJ.

anyone else interested in reviving this thread?? i got into fiction podcasts a while ago and so far i really enjoyed the magnus archives, wolf 359 and eos 10 (among others). i also listened to alice isn't dead, but that was such a drag that i'm wondering if maybe nightvale stuff just isn't for me. currently i'm listening to we're alive and i'm at the beginning of s3, but it's starting to get really dry and boring since the main focus isn't the zombies anymore. i can't bring myself to drop it (yet) though since i got really attached to the three main characters.
Alice Isn't Dead was so incredibly slow that it drove me mad, which is unfortunate because I liked where it was going most of the time, it's just that it never got there. It felt like a /r/creepypasta where the writer is stalling for time because they enjoy the attention and didn't think of an ending yet.
I really enjoyed Sandra so I've been listening to Motherhacker, it's going in a direction I'm less interested in but I trust it enough to stick with it.
Also, Levar Burton Reads never disappoints.

Does anyone listen to Call Her Daddy? It was my guilty pleasure podcast but with all the drama and now only Alex hosting I might drop it.
The most garbage podcast I've ever listened to. Guaranteed to lose braincells and only encourages emotionally unstable behavior. I don't follow the advice of grown women who admittedly can't make a man see them as anything more than a cum dump.
Not to mention the 23 year old sugar baby who had #callherdaddy in her insta bio and ended up getting murdered by a random she chatted with. Yass queen. I'm only glad that the men who jack off while listening to this drivel put it on their dating profiles so I can filter them out.
I'm sad this podcast is so popular in sororites, they'll think it's a smart boss bitch love to play mind games on random hookups then crying about it when he doesn't even leave a read receipt
I don't listen to podcasts, but audiobooks are for>driving>long flights when you're too tired to concentrate but can't sleep either>when you're doing some sort of physical busywork
It's too hard to switch off and just sit/lie down and listen, but you can't do too much either.

i can only listen while i'm driving
potterless is complete trash that i love to get angry at. why are so many of his guests awful? why is half of it talking about how woke they are compared to jk rowling when she wrote this shit in the 90s-00s?
Apparently Chris sperged out at Chase (AKA Geek Gamer; yes, that is literally what he calls himself, and he is very much that out of touch) while discussing an Unfilter reboot, and Chase reacted seemingly disproportionately by coyly denouncing Jupiter Broadcasting and Chris altogether on Twitter. Though, considering this isn't the first time Chris has sperged out (See Chris strawmanning Noah over distro circle jerking: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jyDpmNK1C3o
), the whole ordeal isn't that astonishing. In all likelihood, this won't result in anything notable, but drama like this is a fairly predictable outcome when you put a bunch of manchildren in a room together. It comes and goes.
For clarity, Unfilter was a political podcast that's fairly tech-adjacent and featured generally good deconstruction about news and media. Not incredibly unique, but the two core hosts', Chris Fisher and Chase Nunes, commentary made it work. The project ended some time last year, but Chris attempted a reboot recently, just by himself. It's unclear whether he'll continue it.
Too bad, because I liked Unfilter – and TechSNAP. Both were good because they were legitimately informative, the former because it was a good summation of political news without telling you what to think too much and the latter because it's a good, practical highlight reel of important various software projects and happenings, though it's more fun when Allan talked about ZFS. Everything else on JB is such an insipid waste of time. Just vapid, personality-driven entertainment for obnoxious nerds.
I haven't heard it myself, but I've been told that No Agenda, a similarly tech-adjacent political show, is a good podcast hosted by Jon Dvorak and Adam Curry that can fill the void where Unfilter left.

Blocked and Reporter is my first podcast. I learned about Singal and Herzog from GC content. I like the dynamic between them, and hearing journalists talk about twitter! bullshit is entertaining. I'm also developing a crush on Jesse, tfw no Jewish bf.
ooh, I’ve never heard of this but it sounds good, any recommendations for episodes to start out?
also just throwing it our there, I’ve enjoyed their content almost from day one but goddamn am I sick of my favorite murder’s lazy money grabbing bullshit and their batshit enabling fanbase. saying it here because I’d get destroyed by their cronies anywhere else for daring to speak ill of them

I mean, that’s the catchphrase of the show that’s been around since the early eps but yeah their fanbase is batshit insane and will justify any of their garbage behavior because ‘muh mental health’. they praise the show for being sOoOoOo good for mental health but georgia’s a blatant alcoholic who seems to barely function as a human and is dangerously codependent on karen and vince and her cats. I don’t know how their brainwashed fans don’t see that there’s nothing mentally healthy about that and they shouldn’t being validating that behavior>>99888
cool, I’ll check it out. I guess I would say there’s no shortage of ‘just quirky gals talkin about murder’ podcasts though, all those copycats popped up when mfm found success. so, that’s not really the problem. I think I’ve had a hard time giving it up cause I relate to karen so much (I was also raised irish catholic, her family sounds exactly like mine, I even have the same bday as her). I still enjoy their earlier episodes when it seemed like they actually cared and it wasn’t a blatant moneygrab
I like wine and crime alright, mostly cause of the midwestern accents>>99929
I’ll be real witchu I picked a random episode to try them out yesterday which was the ‘cpk (central park karen)’ episode and I barely got through 15 mins because of how badly the girl rubbed me the wrong way with what she was saying. maybe that was just a bad one but idk if I’ll try another ep
anyways I gotta whine about one last thing. I’ve been re-listening to all of ‘you’re wrong about’ which is great but their episode schedule drives me crazy with the way they jump around so much. I like to wait until a series is done to listen to them all at once, but their oj simpson series started in november and they were only up to the bronco chase in june and they just do episodes of whatever random topic they feel like in-between. I don’t understand why they would possibly think that was a good idea, I was really excited about it initially but I lost interest and forgot about it completely because of how long it was taking and I’m sure I’m not the only one. same with their dc snipers series, took from january to march to put out 4 episodes with unrelated eps in between. It’s just not a cohesive story at that point and no one can remember what happened

all that being said I do think they’re doing a great service by really addressing how truly awful society treated women in media in the 90s/00s. a lot of their episodes cover topics I vaguely remember from growing up but was too young to understand. I really had no idea what went down with the teri schiavo case, and even their episodes on anna nicole smith and jessica simpson made me really think about what I did remember about them

is anyone else listening to behind the bastards? it's a podcast about the horrible people in history, ranging from classic candidates like adolf hitler and stalin to more or less surprising ones like mark zuckerberg. most of the time it's really funny because some background information is just too hilarious.

I've been binging Wizard and the Bruiser episodes because there's literally nothing else about nerd shit with this quality. Their voices are easy to listen to, but Holden has some weird ass obsession for talking about masturbating every 2 or 3 episodes. I really liked the episodes about Shrek, Digimon, and Invader Zim. The Mountain Dew and Doritos episode was… awkward. The Power Rangers episode was fun, too, but Jake was sperging about the creator being Israeli way too hard lmao.

I see a lot of true crime stuff in this thread, so I'm assuming there must be at least a few other people interested in super dark and morbid shit. A warning: this is extremely disturbing and if you can't deal with stuff to do with kids do not listen to this one; it's about darkweb pedos/cp/all the worst shit imaginable, and catching (some of) the people responsible.
I listened to it months ago and of the hundreds of podcasts I've listened to (it's a problem lol) this has stayed with me more than any other. As hard as it is to listen to in parts I do think it's important to try and understand how stuff like this happens, if there's ever to be any hope of stopping it. I dont know how VG is regarded in Norway but from what I've seen of them they do some pretty great journalism, and CBC's contribution is great here too, I think the host does an excellent job of handling what has to be some of most difficult subject matter ever.
I don't think it ever got much recognition, which is a shame, but understandable. Highly recommend, if you're able to stomach it, but yeah… unironic trigger warning
Thank you for this anon, I couldn't stop listening! The dude has a nice chill voice and gets straight to the info.
Listening to Warhead's relative talk about him trying to be alone with her daughter gave me so much anxiety.

I really recommend this podcast. It's still running, but thats fine, because it takes like 1 week to calm down after listening to one episode.

Reviving the thread because I've pretty much gone through my entire backlog and I need new stuff to listen to at work. Do you guys have any recommendations for good solo/scripted podcasts (preferably historical or non-fiction?) I can only listen to so much banter and improv. For reference, and also as contribution, I really enjoy:
>You Must Remember This
Fantastic looks into Hollywood history. I recommend her very first episode (on Frank Sinatra's weirdest album) for starters, then her Dead Blondes miniseries when you're really getting into it
Stories about attempts at utopian societies. Their first episode about Jamestown is sobering but interesting.
>The Memory Palace
Short, bite-sized "weird history"
inb4 "Just listen to audiobooks" kek

Does anyone know some good cinema podcast? It could be about any genre or style!
Are there any good podcasts where women (or just even just one woman) just casually discuss random stuff and make jokes and that's also NOT about romance/dating/sex or true crime?>>99816
I like this one too.

there are a lot, actually! story podcasts (audio dramas) are really popular. some of my faves:
>the magnus archives
archivist at an institute for, let's say, supernatural research reads witness accounts from people who had weird supernatural things happen to them. it slowly turns out that things are not what they seem. really good if you like lovecraft/cosmic horror. contains gay romance in the latter seasons, sadly a little bit of gender woo but usually only for characters who only appear for one episode and then are never mentioned again.
doctor is put on a space station and has to deal with his weird boss and aliens. lots of shenanigans. sadly the best character got written out of the story after like 2 seasons because his voice actor was a sexual predator. also contains gay romance.
genuinely one of the best audio dramas i ever listened to. it's about people stationed in space who suddenly come into contact with aliens. you have to get through the first few episodes but once you have warmed up to the mc/his chris pratt-iness, it gets really good. the best characters appear later in the show (kepler, jacobi, maxwell).
fake true crime podcast about a woman resurfacing after being kidnapped and tortured by a psychopath. gets really twisty at the end.
secret agency offers its clients to fake their deaths in hilarious ways. the characters are VERY quirky, might be an acquired taste.
woman explores strange planet consisting almost entirely of water.
one of the first really modern audio dramas. it's in a zombie apocalypse setting and has very high production value. one of the few podcasts that don't incorporate some sort of recording device to explain why everything is on tape. it's like a tv show but without visuals.
>the edge of sleep
yes, the protagonist is voiced by markiplier. people suddenly can't go to sleep anymore unless they want to die. the ending is a bit weird but i enjoyed the buildup.
if you still want to check out some non-drama podcasts, i really enjoy behind the bastards, which might fall into totes funny and relatable territory sometimes, but it talks about evil people in history and it's quite hilarious. my dad wrote a porno is also funny, at least the first 2 or 3 seasons, before it gets boring. basically the host's dad writes erotic novels and him and his friends make fun of the terrible writing and plot.
