I’ve been making another stab at getting into podcasts lately. I just took a four-hour road trip last weekend and I tried to grab some recs from Twitter, leading to several hours of listening to Lore and a quick try at Case File that was immediately derailed by the host’s accent, which was just a bit too thick for me to handle in the car.
Lore I liked a bit more, but it’s falling into the same trap that Welcome to Night Vale did–after listening to a half-dozen or so episodes, I am both tiring of the host’s voice and becoming really good at predicting certain tics in the way the show is written. If I’ve got a mental drinking game mapped out for your show after listening for a couple of hours then it’s probably not going to hold my interest for too terribly long.
So: any of you out there listen to a lot of podcasts? Y’all should have a decent idea of what I’m into by now. Any recommendations from those of you who don’t follow me on Twitter and are seeing this for the first time?
