Question: Creative talk podcasts?

Tue, 24 Jan 2006 22:38:17 -0800

I really like Benjamen Walker's Theory of Everything. What else would I like?

Some that are similar that you might like are:
Love and Radio which is a sort of "This American Life" of youth and internet culture... It's a resurection of an older show called "This One Time" which was also very good, and available in archive.

Verge of the Fringe, which is a personal storytelling podcast by a man who has an actual degree in storytelling somehow...

Also, in a different thematic vein, but I think good for anyone who liked ToE would be "Sound of Young America"

If you like the occasional somewhat sciencefictiony aspects of ToE then you might like the sci-fi short story magazine podcast "Escape Pod"...

Now that I mention it, there's no podcast but "This American Life" is available for listening online with Realplayer (they can't switch to podcasting because of a deal they made with, and is more like ToE than just about anything else. It's very much worth listening to.

I confess I am just aching to self-link here, because my podcast is inspired by Theory of Everything.
I'll resist... but it is in my profile.

Benjamen's also got at least two audio reports up for the Berkman Centre, here.

I'm a big fan of This American Life and The Theory of Everything, you might also enjoy Invisible Ink and I highly recommend Joe Frank.

You should also check out Ben Adair's show Pacific Drift. It's podacastable. Or you could stream it here...

Check out Johnathan Goldstein's Wiretap on the CBC:

No Podcast, but you can get live RM streams live when it's on. (Hint: If you miss it in one time zone, you can hear it in another).

He's a former producer from This American Life, who, like Benjamen Walker, is really influenced by Joe Frank.

The show's prettty great: Compared to TAL, it's funnier, a bit edgier, and more creatively risky. Really interesting radio and definitely worth checking out.

I also urge you to check out Joe Frank. I think his site is pay, but he's VERY much the progenitor of Benjamin Walker's style. Ira Glass' style, too -- one of Glass' first jobs at NPR was working on special projects with Frank.

A discontinued show called The Next Big Thing was in a similar veign, as well. No podcast, but it does have web archives. I particularly enjoyed Jonathan Katz's segments.

San Francisco comedian Brent Weinbach has a CD called Tales From the Brown Side that's very influenced by Joe Frank. I think it's great. I played some stuff from it on this episode of my own podcast.

(and thanks to Shane for mentioning my show, The Sound of Young America.)

Jonathan Goldstein's Wiretap has an unnoficial podcast... search for Wiretap and his name and it'll pop up.
