After last month’s unofficial hiatus, I finally got back into podcasts in March. I found out a few of my favourites will be returning soon, including Darkest Night which returns in May. Plus, I’m pairing up with The Plot Demands It to rank all the Bond movies this summer – so check out the info for that below!

February Podcast Roundup

Standard

So clearly I’m a little behind on this February roundup – did anyone else feel like that month just FLEW by? There was so much going on and I didn’t end up searching for as many new shows I would have liked… but check below for thoughts on a newer NPR educational civics show Civics 101, my thoughts on the end of TERMS season one, and many more!

January Podcast Roundup

Standard

Early this month, I was the guest on Mad About Movie‘s La La Land episode. We talked Star Wars and DC movie news before moving onto the review and some weekly recommendations. It was great fun, and hopefully you’ll be hearing me more soon!

As for this month, Terms kept ramping up and I can’t wait to find out how this season will end! And I prepped for next month’s JFL NorthWest festival with a lot of My Favorite Murder and Stop Podcasting Yourself episodes. Continue reading

December Podcast Roundup

Standard

In November, I re-listened to the first season of Serial. It’s one of the first podcasts I ever discovered and I’ll never forget how fascinated I was with that. So fascinated, I’ve consistently been searching for new shows that will bring me that same level of dedication and attachment. Check out my top five podcasts like Serial s1 here, and let me know if you have any more.

As for this month, there was a lot going on. I found this great new podcast Terms and I really got stuck into The Black Tapes, a show that recently finished its second season. Continue reading

Top Five: Podcasts for People who love Serial

Standard

This was an insanely popular show a few years ago, at least in first season. Sarah Koenig and team never claimed to be a true crime podcast, instead they were more of an in depth story like This American Life. What drew people (including me) to the show was the Adnan Sayed story: all the intricacies of his case, the did-he-or-didn’t-he presentation, and the true crime element. Shows like Making a Murderer and 48 Hours are hugely popular, so it’s no wonder her second season with the military guy that went rogue and became an Al Qaeda POW didn’t go over so well. There were no interesting questions, nothing that felt like we needed to delve deeper… Continue reading

My Favourite Podcasts

Standard

Over the summer, I really got into listening to podcasts. When you’re working 8+ hours a day in a job that doesn’t require much thought… it’s good to have something to listen to and engage with. So I’ve decided to start some monthly podcast round-ups to discuss my favourite moments from the ones I love, and to give me a chance at trying a few new ones.

Unfortunately, I already have so many podcasts I need to keep up with, especially as I came in late and need to catch up on some. Instead of jumping right in with a round-up, I’ll start by listing some of my favourites… These will probably make it into the round-up’s pretty frequently, but I also have a lot more I listen to that didn’t make it onto this list.
