Podcasts Worth Your Time

Aside from the A Part of Him Network podcasts and SModCo podcasts, here is a list of the podcasts Trent listens to on a regular basis:

99% Invisible is about all the thought that goes into the things we don’t think about — the unnoticed architecture and design that shape our world. With 150 million downloads, 99% Invisible is one of the most popular podcasts on iTunes.
JUDGE JOHN HODGMAN is a weekly podcast in which I, John Hodgman, listen to real life disputes on issues such as: -is chili a soup or a stew? -is this room in my house called an “office” or a “den” or “a room full of junk.” -when is it may someone else’s Chinese food be legally considered abandoned property? -is it OK to rifle through the trash for prize coupons in a Canadian pizza parlor? -is a machine gun a robot? Then I tell the disputants who is right and who is wrong.
The Memory Palace is a storytelling podcast and public radio segment about the past. It was named a finalist for a Peabody Award in 2016.
Nate DiMeo created the show. He is the Artist in Residence at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for 2016/2017.
Elliott Kalan, Dan McCoy, and Stuart Wellington are friends who’ve decided to express that friendship not by doing productive or enjoyable things, but instead by watching critical or commercial flops, and then discussing those terrible movies for you to enjoy in your ear-holes. Although, honestly, most of the time they just talk about random bullshit.

Song Exploder

Song Exploder is a podcast where musicians take apart their songs, and piece by piece, tell the story of how they were made. Each episode is produced and edited by host and creator Hrishikesh Hirway in Los Angeles. Using the isolated, individual tracks from a recording, Hrishikesh asks artists to delve into the specific decisions that went into creating their work. Hrishikesh edits the interviews, removing his side of the conversation and condensing the story to be tightly focused on how the artists brought their songs to life. The show has been featured at the Sundance Film Festival and SXSW.

Radio Diaries

Radio Diaries tells the extraordinary stories of ordinary life. Since 1996, we’ve been giving people tape recorders and working with them to report on their own lives and histories. We’ve collaborated with teenagers and octogenarians, prisoners and prison guards, gospel preachers and bra saleswomen, the famous and the unknown…and along the way we’ve helped pioneer a new form of citizen journalism
