It has been a while since my last podcast recommendation post, but my love for podcasts is still going strong. Here’s what I’ve been listening to lately.
Buffering the Vampire Slayer
Presented by Jenny Owen Youngs and Kristin Russo Buffering the Vampire Slayer is an episode by episode discussion Buffy the Vampire Slayer that concludes with an original song.
I re-watched Buffy recently, but if it has been a while and you’re looking for an excuse to revisit Sunnydale this podcast is perfect for you.
Made of Human with Sofie Hagen
I could write an essay about how much I love Sofie Hagen and everything she does, but for now I’ll settle for singing the praises of her Made of Human Podcast or MohPod as it is affectionately known.
In each episode, Sofie chats with a comedian, writer or someone in public eye about life, connection and how to be a human. There is also a Facebook group full of some of the kindest and most generous people you will meet on the internet – go join.
Our Sexual History
Shawna Scott, owner of SexSiopa.ie, explores aspects of Our Sexual History, including syphilis, female sexuality and the laws surrounding sex, and how they shape the sexually liberated world we live in today.
I love a good backstory and Song Exploder has them in spades. Each episode features an artist talking about how they created a specific song; from the initial inspiration through to the writing and recording processes.
The New York Public Library Podcast
The New York Public Library Podcast features thought-provoking conversations and public talks from artists, writers, performers and thinkers.
