podcast recommendations, every day.


Title: Song By Song
Type: Music, Tom Waits
Recommended by Stabl reader, Eric Benson.
He says, "This is probably the most grown-up podcast I’ve listened to in a while. I love that Isy Suttie - from Peep Show fame - is a guest host who brings an added dynamic to a topic I don’t know much about. Serious Music Chat (SMC), around 15 minutes per episode."
We say, "If you're a fan of Tom Wait, this is a no-brainer. But even if you aren't, this series still has something for the eternally inquisitive."
Description: Martin Zaltz Austwick and Sam Pay discuss the entire Tom Waits discography, episode by episode, song by song.

Title: Ghosts In The Burbs
Type: Horror, Story-Telling
Recommended by Dana from the Bello Collective.
She says, "Ghosts in the Burbs. To some, October means sweaters, PSLs, and football. To me, October means sweaters, Reese’s pumpkins, and horror podcasts. My first horror binge of the season went to Ghosts in the Burbs. The subdued, slow, and realistic feel of the ongoing story was both exactly what I wanted in my listening binge and also a huge mistake which led me to locking myself in the bathroom to hang out in a safe space until my husband came home. Starting as a blog, the podcast series is read by Liz Sauer, a writer and children’s librarian in Wellesley, Massachusetts who sets out to naively just collect ghost stories of the town … without becoming a paranormal target herself."
We say, "The genius of this podcast is in its simplicity - a first-person narrative with some added sound FX. Boo!"
Description: Ghosts In The Burbs is a podcast about the ghosties living in Wellesley, Massachusetts and the suburbanites who encounter them.

Title: What If World
Type: Story-telling, Children's
Recommended by Guardian Podcasts.
They say, "Every week, Mr Eric answers a what-if question from a kid who has called in, coming up with an impromptu 15-minute story full of adventure and excitement. You never know what new characters you’ll meet or where the story will take you, and there is always a lovely lesson to learn. My son and I love it. It really is quite magical."
Description: What if a tiny dragon lived in my closet? What if there were a never-ending bowl of ice cream? What if cats ruled the world? Join Abacus P Grumbler, Randall Radbot, and Whendiana Joan as they help Mr. Eric tell wacky stories inspired by your questions!

Title: The Decision
Type: Sport, Basketball
Recommended by the ever on-it Ben Cannon from the Constant Listener.
He says, "Make no mistake, The Decision is not sports radio. Even though the central premise is about passionate fandom, there is an absence of bluster. Instead the program consists largely of easy going, often erudite conversations, touching as much on the Instagram accounts of players as their history and playing style. Guests run the gamut, including podcasters, journalists, comedians, filmmakers and kind of everywhere in between. It’s this everyman take that positions the show to also serve as an entree into the sport for the uninitiated."
We say, "The concept is a little hard to take in being a soccer/football fan based in the UK - the thought of changing one's team is unthinkable - however, this is an intriguing mini-series nevertheless. Nicely produced and food-for-thought for those who watch basketball occasionally but are not yet affiliated with a team. Swish!"
Description: This is The Decision: The podcast where people try to convince host Alex Kapelman to finally abandon The Knicks, and become a fan of their favorite team. The Decision is produced by Alex Kapelman. Original music from Louis Stein, Alessio Romano, and Scott Kapelman. There will be five new episodes of the show every weekday until Tuesday, October 17, when the final episode will be released.

Title: Some Noise
Type: Documentary, History
Recommended by the awesome The Auditors.
They say, "This hard-to-define indie podcast is a thing of spectacular ambition and ravenous curiosity, presenting deeply-reported episodes that seek to understand what it means to be American. Host and producer Najib Aminy is a journalist by trade, and it shows. Pounding the pavement from mosques to wrestling rings, he is equipped with the tools of a reporter: a nose for a story, an easy rapport with people, an instinct for when to speak and when to be quiet. Interviews and actuality are cut with archival audio and Aminy's reserved narration, and though episodes are long, they aren't formless. They unfold deliberately and one must absorb them patiently (a healthy prescription for restless podcast reviewers). "
We say, "Sometime the presenter alone makes the piece worth listening to, and this is very mucht he case here. Well worth a binge."
Description: It's a show about stories and the foolish pursuit of life, clarity and context. Stories that confront, challenge and question our preconceived notions of Uncle Sam’s culture, tradition and identity. And stories that focus on the purpose of common folk—be it those who spend their Fridays in a wrestling ring or those that attend Sunday service, and ask why?

Title: Reply All (specific episodes)
Type: Technology, non-fiction
Recommended by Ella Watts from The Podcasters' Support Group.
She says, "Well, [I was recommended] Long Distance and Long Distance Part II from the show Reply All, and honestly it was brilliant!"
We say, "This show is a regular in our stabl of shows, f'sure. Excellent, as always from the Gimlet team, and these specials are particularly gripping and well-produced."

Title: The Thread with OZY
Type: History
Recommended by the Guardian.
They say, "“What makes someone kill their own hero in cold blood?” That’s the question asked by The Thread with OZY (iTunes), an addictive podcast that takes a short and snappy journey through history. “We turn back the clock one story at a time to reveal how various strands are woven together to create a historic figure, big idea or an unthinkable tragedy,” says narrator Sean Braswell.
The Thread is one of those podcasts that you can’t dip in and out of: start at the beginning, with the murder of John Lennon. Braswell keeps each episode tight, so within 20 minutes he gives enough information to hook listeners in as well as make them want to read up on the facts. "
We say, "The minutiae details is what makes this podcast fascinating. Only 6 episodes are planned but that should change once people get gripped."
Description: Explore history’s interlocking lives and events. Turn back the clock, one story at a time. Discover how various strands are woven together to create a historic figure, a big idea or an unthinkable tragedy. From OZY Media. History. Unwound.

Title: Benjamen Walker's Theory of Everything
Type: Documentary
Recommended by Janet Levy, Stabl reader.
She says, "It's just one of those podcasts that I cannot wait to listen to every week, I love it. I particularly recommend listening to the Influencers double bill."
We say, "This podcast from Radiotopia has been on our radar for a while now. Fantastic stories scraping the surface of art and society. Nicely produced."

Title: Sum Of All Parts
Type: Science
Recommended by Erik Jones via his fascinating newsletter.
He says, "I love well produced narrative podcasts that narrow their stories to one topic. There's 99 Percent Invisible for design, Planet Money for economics, 20 Thousand Hertz for sound. And now there is Sum of All Parts for math. Shoal Attack is the story of how looking at the behavior of large groups of animals helped Australia win the Netball championship vs their long time nemesis, New Zealand.
You might learn: Collective Behavior is a new field of scientific research that quantifies how and when the sum is greater than the parts. "
We say, "We were recently recommending science-based podcasts on the radio and missed this one out, the fools! Time to catch up... "
Description: Sum of All Parts tells extraordinary stories about the unseen influence that numbers have on the way we think, feel and behave.

Title: Dirty John
Type: Narrative, Documentary, Mystery
Recommended by Sara Weber via her brill newsletter.
She says, "Dirty John, a co-production by the LA Times and Wondery, is fantastic: It feels like THE podcast of the fall, another great example of audio storytelling. The big question: Who is John, the guy that is in a relationship with Debra Newell?"
We say, "Another great example of a newspaper which understands the podcast format by bringing their journalistic expertise to the table. Very promising."
Description: Debra Newell is a successful interior designer. She meets John Meehan, a handsome man who seems to check all the boxes: attentive, available, just back from a year in Iraq with Doctors Without Borders. But her family doesn’t like John, and they get entangled in an increasingly complex web of love, deception, forgiveness, denial, and ultimately, survival. Reported and hosted by Christopher Goffard from the L.A. Times.

Title: Baltimore: The Rise of Charm City
Type: History, Documentary
Recommended by Ashley from the fab Bello Collective.

We say, "The perfect way to tell a local story, one to check out."
Description: A radio show and podcast telling intergenerational stories of place and memory in Baltimore City. Produced in partnership with WEAA 88.9 and AIR's Localore: Finding America project.

Title: Deadly Manners
Type: Fiction, Mystery
Recommended by Dana from the fab Bello Collective.
She says, "...and then I can’t forget Deadly Manners which is already an instant classic of celebrity voices in a murder mystery dinner party. Agatha Christie would be proud."
We say, "Love, love, love this! And it's narrated by the legend that is LeVar Burton. Great foley, brilliant production, superstar cast. What's not to love?"
Description: Deadly Manners is a 10 episode, dark comedy murder-mystery series set in the winter of 1954. It follows the events during the night of the affluent Billings family annual dinner party with their distinguished, eccentric guests. However, all is not fun and games as shortly after the party starts, a snowstorm begins to rage outside, trapping all the partygoers inside their host’s mansion.

When a murderer starts killing off those in attendance, the guests must figure out who is responsible, or at least how to stay alive -- lest they be next. Deadly Manners was created by Ali Garfinkel and Alex Aldea. Deadly Manners stars Kristen Bell, Denis O'Hare, Alisha Boe, RuPaul, Anna Chlumsky, Timothy Simons, Michelle Visage, Alona Tal, David Cummings and is narrated by LeVar Burton. Artwork by Kina Lee.

Title: I Only Listen to the Mountain Goats
Type: Art, Music
Recommended by Erik Jones from Hurt Your Brain.
He says, "I Only Listen To The Mountain Goats is a collaboration between Joseph Fink from Welcome to Night Vale, and John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats. The first episode is The Best Ever Metal Band in Denton and features famous author and Mountain Goat super fan, John Green. It's part deep dive into The Mountain Goats, and part exploration of the creative process. It's like the best version of a friend nagging you that you really need to be into their favorite band."
We say, "Never meet your heros? This may change your mind..."
Description: Welcome to Night Vale creator Joseph Fink and the Mountain Goats singer/songwriter John Darnielle discuss what it means to be an artist, a fan, and both at once.

Recommended by Tony Dutcher from Podcasts We Listen To.
He says, "I know I can't be the only nostalgia podcast lover in here. [I love this one!]"
We say, "Lots of laughing and swearing... there's a tendency that the hosts talk over each other but if you like nostagia and naff movies, check it out!"
Description: Each week the WHM gang force themselves to watch bad movies that were better left forgotten to fuel off-the-wall tangents, inane impressions and unabashed comedic silliness. This is a comedy podcast for movie lovers that can't help but relish pure trash.

Type: Non-Fiction, Culture

Title Alone: A Love Story
Type Non-Fiction, Narrative
Recommended by The Audit.
They say, "From the Canadian national broadcaster - specifically, from inside the most private inner chambers of producer Michelle Parise - comes this first-person account of the making and breaking of a marriage. CBC dropped the whole 10-episode series last week, and we tipped headlong into it, following Parise from the first flush of her relationship with the man who would become her husband, through the pleasures and difficulties of marriage, into the painful present.
It's obviously extremely personal, and there is a wildness in Parise's descriptions of her own pain that makes us think it isn't entirely in the past. At times, it's uncomfortable, spilling over with the embarrassing self-regard of a journal. But discomfort is no bad thing.
Mostly, it is magical: honest, deeply felt, and beautifully scored, too. Thoughtful story editing by Veronica Simmonds, of Sleepover, Braidio and other good things."
We say, "Woah, strap in and feel the feels."
Description: Alone: A Love Story, is a bold new format for CBC Original Podcasts — a memoir about love, the bomb, and the fallout.

Title Tumanbay
Type Fiction, Adventure
Recommended by Melissa Locker or woolyknickers from Pod People .
She says, "My new favorite audio drama is Tumanbay, which is well-produced, haunting, and kind of sounds like a Game of Thrones spinoff set in Dorne."
We say, "Epic drama from the BBC and Panoply. What's not to love?"
Description: Tumanbay, the beating heart of a vast empire, is threatened by a rebellion in a far-off province and a mysterious force devouring the empire from within. An epic medieval thriller inspired by the Mamluk slave rulers of Egypt, set in the most powerful city on earth. A story of slaves, spies, armies, betrayals, assassinations, deserts and plagues.

Title Strong Opinions Loosely Held
Type Social-sciences, Adventure
Recommended by Monica Rivera on Podcasters' Support Group [on Facebook].
She says, "I'm kinda digging this show called, Strong Opinions Loosely Held. It's generally 30 mins or less and is about pop culture. If you're into food, House of Carbs is a fun one - don't listen on an empty stomach or you'll want to eat everything afterwards."
We say, "Season 2 has just finished. Interesting and engaging topics, one for the boardroom."
Description: Refinery 29's Elisa Kreisinger talks to today's culture makers and rule breakers to solve the mysteries behind our modern popular culture. Are the creative entrepreneurs we see across social media with a ton of followers making any money? What does our obsession with HGTV say about America? How can Taylor Swift sell squad goals after she's put women down? Why do we discount young women but embrace "early adopters"? This award winning podcast is back for season two starting July 10.

Title The Unmissables
Type TV, Pop Culture
Recommended by Guardian podcasts.
They say, "The Unmissables is an attempt by Heat magazine to create a podcast about pop culture – mostly TV programmes – in the same style as the Kermode and Mayo film review podcast. And it succeeds, on and off.

Title Pregnant Pause
Type Life, Culture
Recommended by Guardian podcasts.
They say, "my favourite parts are the fly-on-the-wall moments: Zak and Shira breaking into a silly, spontaneous song; Shira crying after a negative pregnancy test; Zak asking a new mom friend, “Why do parents always need so many bags?” If only more couples approached parenthood with this much honesty and humility."
We say, "Powerful and deeply personal, this is a great example of how podcasts get beneath the listener's skin".
Description: Over a year ago, Zak and Shira began discussing whether they should have kids. They conferred with friends, family, writers, scientists, and philosophers along the way. Pregnant Pause is their intimate account of making the most important decision of their lives (so far).

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.

Title How Do You Sleep At Night? (ABC)
Type Society, Culture
Recommended by Stabl reader, Tom Hoggins

They say, "my favourite podcast is Adrift from Geoff Lloyd and Annabel Port.

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."
