I've been binge-listening to a podcast from the New York Times called The Run-up. It was originally started as a discussion and analysis of election cycle news prior to the US presidential election, now continuing with post-election coverage and analysis of how things ended up the way they did and why.
It's pretty interesting to listen to the pre-election stories in light of the results. Really makes me wonder what the heck happened.
I've been mainlining Lore, a series about some possibly-supernatural and some plain gruesome happenings throughout history as well as the Penguin Podcast in which Richard E. Grant interviews authors about their latest books and asks them to share five objects that have something to do with the conception and writing of them.
"There's a horror movie named Alien? That's really offensive. No wonder everybody keeps invading you."
For a light hearted listen, im tucking in to The Two Mikes. Mike 'Porky' Parry and his inane stream of consciousness is just hilarious and I've always liked the guy. His partner, Mike Graham, spends most of his time fending off and proving Parry's theories as codswallop.
You cant beat flashing perspex goal posts for goal line technology or todays yarn about moths being made entirely of dust.
The Daily, from The New York Times. Twenty or so minutes every weekday on current news events. The host, Michael Barbaro, goes into interesting details on the prominent news stories of the day.
Can He Do That? from the Washington Post is a weekly podcast that examines events happening in the Trump administration and asks the question, "Can he do that?" Very interesting, and also a short time commitment, usually about 20 minutes or so.
Note to Self bills itself as "the tech show about being human." The discussions center on the technology we use and how it affects our lives, as well as privacy issues. It's very interesting.
And, of course, I'm still listening to the ones I mentioned upthread.
I absolutely love the podcast "Gilbert Gottfried's Amazing Colossal Podcast"
I initially checked it out because Gottfried's voice and...er...baser sense of humour make me laugh, but then I found out it was much more. Gilbert and his buddy Frank run this podcast as basically a love letter to golden age of Hollywood. It is, of course, infused with his kind of humour, but most episodes are all about talking about old movies and actors, stories and legends from behind the scenes, and so on. And their guest list? Incredible, for 'a podcast hosted by Gilbert Gottfried.'
Over the last few years they've interviewed: Dick Cavett, Larry Storch, Marty Allen, Robert Osborne, Joe Franklin, Billy West, Bill Persky, Danny Aiello, Barbara Feldon, Adam West, Roger Corman, Bob Saget, Micky Dolenz, Henry Winkler, Danny Bonaduce, James Karen, Bob Zmuda, Bill Mumy, Bobby Rydell, Lee Meriwether & Julie Newmar, Michael Nesmith, Ed Asner, and tons and tons more. I think they're up to about 180 podcasts they've done now.
Are there any discussion podcasts of Big Finish Doctor Who anyone can recommend?
I already subscribe to Tin Dog, but I am looking for something a bit some spoilerific and perhaps a bit more controversial!
I've listened to Tales from the Vortex once or twice, but it was a while ago, so I can't remember if it's more spoilerific/controversial or not.
MarkWHO42 sometimes talks about Big Finish releases, but that podcast is about Doctor Who in general and can be all over the place. He has done some good interviews with people involved with Doctor Who and/or Big Finish. Haven't listened to his podcast in a while, as it's long and a time commitment.
