Title Ear Hustle (Radiotopia)
Type Society, Culture
Recommended by Phil Maguire from the Podcasters' Support Group (on Facebook)
They say, "I recommend the Boom Boom Room episode."
We say, Fantastic concept, brilliantly executed. This show is exactly what you want from a 'beneath-the-surface' programme about the day-to-day life of a brutal US gaol system. It very much 'humanises' the whole thing.
Description: Ear Hustle brings you the stories of life inside prison, shared and produced by those living it. The podcast is a partnership between Earlonne Woods and Antwan Williams, currently incarcerated at San Quentin State Prison, and Nigel Poor, a Bay Area artist. The team works in San Quentin’s media lab to produce stories that are sometimes difficult, often funny and always honest, offering a nuanced view of people living within the American prison system.

Title How Do You Sleep At Night? (ABC)
Type Society, Culture
Recommended by Stabl reader, Tom Hoggins
They say, "I don't know if you listen to many Australian podcasts, but this is a new one and I love it! I feel like I'm getting judged constantly, so it's nice to hear someone else' perspective on getting judged."
We say, ABC have yet again pulled a doozie ot of the bag - I love the idea and the episodes the studio have produced so far points towards promoising things to come.
Description: How Do You Sleep At Night? is a new podcast hosted by Hack’s Sarah McVeigh. It’s about people who live their lives in the face of judgement. You’ll meet characters including a big tobacco lobbyist and big game hunters, a killer and a stock market manipulator. The show explores the different moral codes we all live by. Because no one thinks they’re a bad person, right?

Title Adrift from Geoff Lloyd and Annabel Port
Type Fiction
Recommended by Stabl reader Robert Howard on 12th September, 2017.
They say, "my favourite podcast is Adrift from Geoff Lloyd and Annabel Port. It promises little and delivers even less.... seriously though these two used to be on Absolute Radio and left to start this. Two friends chatting about this nonsensical world. Give it a go - you won't be disappointed though that's no guarantee..."
Description: a comic tragedy for anyone flailing in the sea of their own inadequacy. Sony Radio Award winners Geoff Lloyd and Annabel Port steer a life-raft through the choppy waters of being a functional human.

Title [Night Vale presents] Within the Wires
Type Fiction
Recommended by The Guardian on 8th September, 2017.
They say, "Last season comprised 10 relaxation tapes that were sinister and surreal. They quietly laid a bloody trail of horror. The new season is an equally unnerving take on museum audio guides. The first instalment is set in the Tate Modern and narrated by Rima Te Wiata, who plays an artist talking about the work of her mentor, the mysterious Claudia Atiero, who disappeared suddenly. She paints a picture of a parallel world, after “the great reckoning” – a revolution that changed the way people lived."
