Podcasts are like television for your ears, but on the train.

WeCrashed

WeCrashed: The Rise and Fall of WeWork

WeWork seemed like such a great idea. In fact, it's still a great idea. Or a good idea, at least. But what happens when a great idea meets a man with horribly narcissist...
American Jihadi

American Jihadi

Imagine being such a true believer that you leave your comfortable, middle class American home and go to a war-torn country to take up arms against all perceived enemies...
Blood Ties Season 1

Blood Ties: Season 1

Here I go again, delving into scripted fiction audio stuff. Because there isn't enough good TV out there. But, the issue is, there is plenty of TV out there. And, sure...
The Rewatchables

The Rewatchables

The thing is, I barely see first-run movies these days. That used to be a big thing in my life. But as adult life and children and work and all sorts of other distractions...
Bad Batch

Bad Batch

Podcasts are this weird chain reaction of discovery. I don't often find them serendipitously. I honestly rarely hear about limited series podcasts via word of mouth. Sure...
Atlanta Monster

Atlanta Monster

I tend to ingest media about certain things — mainly serial killers — in chunks. A little while back I listened to a podcast about the Black Dahlia and then watched...
Bardstown

Bardstown

Bardstown is another in an increasing field of true crime podcasts. Named after the supposedly idyllic town in Kentucky, the podcast investigates five unsolved murders...
Culpable

Culpable

There are so many of these true crime podcasts around these days. On the whole they all feel like an expanded version of a decent episode of Dateline. You know, you...
The Clearing

The Clearing

The Clearing is yet another true crime podcast that investigates some old, cold case murders. But this one is different. Because one of the major participants of the...
Dirty John

Dirty John

I’ve been listening to way too many of these depressing podcasts of late. Dirty John is a little different than some of them, of course, as it’s not about an unsolved...
To Live and Die in LA

To Live and Die in LA

I've always wondered how the heck you plan an investigative thing without having any idea how it's going to end up. It's not like I haven't listened to a few of these...
Carrier

Carrier

Podcasts have truly ruined my book reading. But until this year the two didn't really overlap in terms of content. I listened to podcasts to get news or entertainment...
Running from COPS

Headlong: Running from Cops

Back in college, we had a Saturday evening ritual. Before heading out to the campus bars we'd catch an episode of COPS. There was nothing like watching shirtless...
Blackout Season 1

Blackout: Season 1

No matter the medium, doing a New England accent is tough. And this scripted podcast set in New Hampshire is no exception. You gotta either commit to the accent or...
Root of Evil

Root of Evil

Of late, I feel like my viewing and listening habits are melding in an almost unhealthy way. After watching TNT's limited series, I Am the Night, I kind of, sort of ran...
The Dropout

The Dropout

I’m like the last person in America to read about the case of Theranos. I had a vague notion what it was all about, but really hadn’t dug in. In all honesty, I...
Broken Record

Broken Record: Season 1

What amounts to a bit of a spinoff of Malcolm Gladwell’s Revisionist History podcast, Broken Record obviously focuses on music and its place in history. Initially...
