I am so very glad I was born in the era of podcasts. I should probably be thankful I was born in the era of you know, toilets, vaccines, cars, things like that. But podcast are my favorite.
The first podcast I got into was Aaron Mahnke’s Lore after I watched the first season of the Amazon series. It was all downhill from there. I binged the series, and then tried to find other series similar. Soon I was knee deep into Astonishing Legends, Unexplained, Monsters Among Us, Crime Junkie, Unsolved Murders and on and on- overly excited that there was a community of people who were as interested in monsters, madness, cryptids and the unsolved questions of the universe as I was.
I think podcasts allow us to connect with a large group of like-minded people, as well as learn new and exciting things not previously available in such a specific and accessible format. Many podcasts also have their own online communities where listeners can connect and discuss the show and other topics related to their similar interests.
What do you think about podcasts? Have you delved into this newer world of media? If so, what is your favorite genre and series?
