Your favorite non EA podcasts
« on: November 12, 2017, 01:52:18 PM »
That we're all here means we love one or more of the Escape Artists podcasts. But you probably have other favorites too - here's the thread to share them and discover new podcasts from other people's favorites!

Any type of podcasts count - story podcasts of course, but tell us your favorite educational podcasts, or ones about your hobbies and interests.



My list
Story podcasts: Lightspeed, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Drabblecast (RIP?)
NPR: This American Life, Radiolab, Invisibilia, More Perfect (supreme court history).

Some of my favorites get deep into crunchy analysis of literature and film. I enjoy discussion of the minutiae that make up stories. These include:

Faculty of Horror
The Know Fear Cast
H.P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast
A Podcast to the Curious
The Tolkien Professor

Decoder Ring Theater  kind of like old time radio shows along lines of the Shadow.  There are usually at least two Character arcs going.  The Red Panda (very much a the Shadow type character)  and Black Jack Justice (think mickey spilane or other noir detective.)

Fiction:
- The Magnus Archives (British horror shorts with a bit of metaplot)
- Welcome to Nightvale (disguised as a local radio station - comedic/absurd weirdness with a pinch of horror)

Non-Fiction:
- Deutschland Funk: Eine Welt (German NPR "one world" - news about other countries)
- Luftpost ("air mail" - a German student interviews people about their travels. includes an episode with me ;) )
- Cracked Podcast (comedy writers talking about weird history, media, and society)
- Freakonomics Radio (a journalist and an economist try to explain stuff; based on a book series by the same guys)
- Writing Excuses (four successful authors from different genre styles discuss how to write)
- Oh No Ross and Carrie (Ross and Carrie join cults or try out paranormal stuff and report on it)
- New Books in Anthropology (authors are interviewed about their research - easier to digest than reading those books)
