I love podcasts very much, and I wanted to share some of my favourites with you guys, and hopefully get some recommendations in return! In no particular order:
Girl in Space, (I lied, this is my most favourite one, the rest don’t have an order though) a story about a girl called X who lives in a space station orbiting a red dwarf called Ra. As a scientist she records pretty much everything, for research purposes, posterity and to have something to talk to. She’s the only person there, until she isn’t. It’s heartwarming and heartwrenching and the characters and the voice acting are SO GOOD and the person who makes it is super lovely.
Mabel, about a girl called Anna who is a care nurse for an old lady named Sally, whose granddaughter is called Mabel. Lots of very strange things happen in that house and the podcast is Anna’s voicemails to Mabel. It’s spooky and fascinating and quite poetic.
The Phenomenon, set after a global disaster means that survivors cannot look outside, cannot look at the sky, and cannot make noise. It has some really great characters and the mystery behind the disaster has me HOOKED.
Olive Hill, a fictional podcast in the style of a journalist investigating the night two girls mysteriously left their homes and walked straight into the woods behind their town, neither returning alive. Fascinating and genuinely creepy in parts.
Encounter Party, a dungeons and dragons podcast set in Ravnica, it’s hilarious and has such a weird motley crew making up the party.
Death in the Afternoon, from the Order of the Good Death, a death-positive movement to reduce stigma around death and talk about it in more positive and meaningful ways. If any of you have seen Ask a Mortician on YouTube (which I highly recommend if you haven’t) it’s along the same theme, being made by the mortician in question and two of her friends who are also Order members. The last episode was about zombies and how they relate to society’s relationship with death, it was really good.
What do you listen to??
