I nearly forgot! I will also nominate Wonderful! I appreciate that it is a very positive show in a very negative time. I’m glad that there is a show that I can go to that is just unabashedly pure and happy about just stuff! It’s such a warm respite nowadays.
This past year I’ve gotten BIG into podcasts. Fave This!, The Polygon Show and of course Waypoint Radio have been really enjoyable, but they’ve been nominated! @2Mello I simply MUST check out Magnus Archives! And @ApparitionOnLine I gotta check Trust Issues out. Both sound like my style! Adding those to my app immediately. I’d like to shout out some of the newer ones I’ve been enjoying, and that I haven’t seen brought up!:
The Cryptid Keeper is literally just a show where two young ladies talk about cryptids and have a good time. Again, it’s one of these warm respites.
Lingthusiasm is a linguistics podcast. One cool thing is that they write transcripts of their episodes and post them on their Tumblr!
What Trump Can Teach Us About Con Law is pretty self explanatory, but super interesting.
The Optional Podcast I’ve only listened to a few episodes of, but seems nice!
Every Little Thing is another sweet, but also very informative little podcast! They investigate seemingly trivial matters and get really into the hidden mechanisms and cultures behind them. My personal favorite is the episode about the office plant industry. This is honestly my runner up! I might like it more than Wonderful!, as a matter of fact. Big fan of this warm and positive journalism!
