I Guess I Listen To Podcasts Now

It was bound to happen, and it's actually been a nice way to take more walks. 

Here's what I'm currently listening to:
  • Nancy - The folks at Nancy, particularly co-hosts Kathy Tu and Tobin Low, generate queer content that has both humor and heart. Recommended episodes: "The Ring of Keys" and the interview with Alexandra Billings.
  • Battlestar Galacticast - One of my favorite things about Battlestar Galactica is that many of the cast members are at least as nerdy about the show as the diehard fans. This podcast is hosted by Tricia Helfer (Cylon Number Six) and writer Marc Bernadin, with special guests also appearing.
  • Gaslit Nation - Co-hosts Sarah Kendzior and Andrea Chalupa provide essential analyses of current political events, particularly the Trump regime and Russia.
  • The Hilarious World of Depression - The format here is that host John Moe interviews comedians, musicians, and celebrities about depression and mental health. It's done well, I think, and it's been informative to me to see how differently the same mental health issues can manifest in different people. 
  • Bag Man - This one's hosted by Rachel Maddow and, in it, she recounts the investigation into Vice President Spiro Agnew's illegal activities and eventual resignation, with obvious parallels to current events.
Feel free to drop recommendations in the comments!
