Episode nine and it's podcast time. First up, as always, your friendly neighbourhood Castologists tell us exactly what they thought of Ain't it Rich, Serial and RadioLab. Then, have they got more recommendations for you! (Of course they have, it's literally their job). Liz is all about romantic espionage with I Secretly Recorded My Boyfriend, Patrick brings comedy and the biggest issues of our time together with #WeThePeople LIVE, and Zane brings Paul F. Thompkins to the table once more with Spontaneonation (making Liz very happy in the process).
Liz Recommends: I Secretly Recorded My Boyfriend
Jo was so astounded with some of the things her boyfriend said that she started secretly recording him (seriously, he doesn't have a clue). She brings her friends Katy and Sparky on board to judge the status of her relationship by the very amusing recordings. Get ready for heavy Birmingham accents, lots of swearing and a fascinating look into the differences between men and women.
For both: Start at the start and listen to as many that grab you. This one's easy to duck in and out of.
Pat Recommends - #WeThePeople LIVE
Hey guess what I've recommended. A news, science and politics podcast. Something like that anyway. Crazy right? Hosted by Australian media personality Josh Zepps, this one started out as a somewhat drunken panel show that would take place in a bar in New York. Now that Josh is a responsible adult with twins he's moved back to Sydney and the show has taken on a one on one interview format... onaoneonone. Anyway, the show is great regardless of format and he manages to wrangle plenty of fine guests.
For Zane: Episode - 134. Dr Karl - LIVE
For Liz: Episodes - 139. Is the USA Undemocratic - Harvey Kaye
Zane Recommends - Spontaneanation www.earwolf.com/show/spontaneanation-with-paul-f-tompkins
After The Thrilling Adventure Hour left my life, Paul F Tompkins did his best to fill the void in my life (and in the Largo Theatre) with this improv podcast. Spontaneanation with Paul F Tompkins is a completely improvised show, from monologue to interview to narrative sketch. Join Paul, his special guests, his incredibly talented improviser friends, and accompanist Eban Schletter for an hour of comedy that none of them ever see coming.
For Liz: 41 Pet Store, Post Robbery
