Elevator pitches for some good podcasts (minor spoilers)
  • Welcome to Night Vale: Community radio told in soothing tones that are really easy to zone out to. Don't, though, because if zone out for three seconds during a report on a PTA meeting you'll be wondering when Cecil started giving injury reports on a pteradon attack.
  • Within The Wires: In a future of world peace and totalitarian fascism, shitty guided meditation cassette tapes are the true weapon of resistance.
  • The Message: You like horrible death plagues? You like SETI? Boy do I have the podcast for you.
  • LifeAfter: A fascinating little story about grief, recovery, and the development and psychology of artificial intelligence. That would be awesome. You can almost see it being told in the background of a self-centred dickbag whining and fucking everything up.
  • Juno Steel: Mentally ill genderqueer private investigator on Mars solves crimes and saves lives. Once ate a rock to stop anybody else from having it. Let's not get into the cat thing.
  • The Black Tapes: What if James Randi was, like, a complete arsehole? With the philosophical grounding of Richard Dawkins? Also a sound-based death cult is in there somewhere.
  • Tanis: Man in search of mystery finds too much mystery. Wishes people would stop being so fucking mysterious and just give him straight answers. (Spoiler: they do not.)
  • Sparks Nevada, Marshall on Mars: The title tells you everything.
  • Beyond Belief: Two rich people want to sit at home and drink all day. Ghosts, demons and vampires keep fucking it up.
  • The Bright Sessions: Psychiatrist violates every ethical rule possible for dealing with her patients, but it's okay, because psychic government conspiracy.
Non artist struggles

That moment you want to draw something but remember that you struggle to draw stick figures and circles

Y’all, we need to take a moment to appreciate the story of how Marc Evan Jackson (aka Kevin Cozner in B99, Trevor Nelsson in Parks and Rec, Sparks Nevada in the Thrilling Adventure Hour, etc) met his wife because it legitimately is a Real Life Vet AU and is the most adorable thing. ♥♥ OK, SO: 

  • His wife is a vet, and they first met because his cat was sick.
  • When she walked into the tiny patient room, they had a “two-way, star-in-the-eye, twinkle moment.” 
  • As she was listening to his cat’s heart during the physical exam, his actual thoughts were: I’M GOING TO KISS HER. Wait, no, I could go to jail today if I do that… She doesn’t need me in her life. I’m not going to do anything. 
  • He was planning to travel somewhere and needed a permit/certificate for his cat to fly with him, so he had to go back to the vet. 
  • At the second visit, she asked him out by saying she wanted a tour of downtown because she had been away from the area for several years. 
  • He wasn’t 100% sure if they were on a date, but he took her out to dinner, coffee, and dessert anyway.
  • He actually did bring her on a “total bullshit tour” – he had no idea where he was driving her to because he had been so busy with work and really barely knew the city. 
  • Right when he was lost in the middle of the nowhere, she started giving him directions… And then he realized that it was a date! She knew exactly where they were and didn’t need a tour at all!!! 

In conclusion, ADORABLE AU-TYPE MEET CUTES CAN HAPPEN IN REAL LIFE AS WELL.

Here is 2/? of my podcast recommendations for anyone looking for something good to listen to. I’ve put The Bright Sessions here as well because it is my favourite at the moment and I want to share it with as many people as possible. These can all be found on iTunes.

If there’s a podcast that hasn’t featured on either of my posts that you think deserves a shout out, let me know what it is and I’ll give it a listen. I’m always looking for new podcasts to listen to, preferably fiction.

Podcast suggestions?

Hi! I NEED MORE PODCASTS TO LISTEN TO PLEASE SUGGEST SOME!

I’ve been getting a bit board with my podcast feed, does anyone have any podcasts they suggest? I really want like an audio-drama with characters and a story. I’ve listened to a lot and have some even to catch up on but I’m never in the mood for them. Here is a list of what I have listened to already, and a description if you yourself are looking for more to listen to:

Alice isn’t Dead- Spooky vibes, not too long, gay, mostly the main character talking to herself but gets into trouble with Thistle men 0.0

EOS 10 (WHICH I LOVE AND WANT TO RETURN SO BAD)- Hilarious, probably gay but no official relationships yet, doctors in space and their banter

Greater Boston- Super original ? Like a group of characters living in Boston but they don’t super know each other and also real interviews from people living in Boston, and LESBIANS

Hector Vs. the Future- Science comedy hilarious and weird

Lore- Real stories of folklore, can keep you up at night so watch out

Our Fair City- hilarious and suspenseful and wholesome, Capitalism takes over and people are trying to just survive

Radio People- Confusing space banter that is sometimes concerning for characters but most of it is just funny and weird 

The Bridge- just started, don’t know how i feel about it yet

The Bright Sessions- FANTASTIC! Listening to the counseling sessions of a therapist and her patients with abnormal abilities! Usually nice, all pure characters (except one -_-), you will love everyone and they all meet up in the current episodes AND ITS GAY WITH SEVERAL CHARACTERS AND HAS A CANNON ACE CHARACTER

The Far Meridian- Super chill like lonely aesthetic ? A character is trying to overcome her anxieties about life while super weird things happen to her every day and she just has to deal with it and she’s great!

The Orbiting Human Circus of the Air- I don’t even know other than great ?? A radio show you listen to but also hear the behind the scenes and you will fall in love with the janitor Julian he is my smol son and will be yours too

The Penumbra Podcast - SUPER LGBT+ Detective on mars, getting into way to much trouble and Juno just needs some help and maybe he will get that. Also random mini series that are also super amazing and always defying expectation and probably the most futuristic gay podcast because society has gotten to the point that being gay or trans or having pronouns that don’t match your voice (since you can’t see anyone) isn’t shocking to any character ever at all ? and boys wear wedding dresses :’D

The Strange Case of the Starship Iris- amazing gay space pirates and their adventures, cannon trans character!!!

Thrilling Adventure Hour- tragically ended but 200 episodes so hey you’ve got plenty. So many different shows but the best is a space western and a couple that are mediums but just want to be left alone to drink.

Welcome to Night Vale- spooky and I’m sure everyone has heard of it by now

Wits- A talk show from Minnesota Public Radio with comedian and musician guests that talk about things and play games, it’s over but the archive is great.

Wolf 359- Begins with healthy space banter, ends with you obsessing if your space children will ever be okay. 

Wooden overcoats- Hilarious and very little drama, when a second funeral home opens in the village a never ending feud begins 0.o except only one side is really upset about it, Chapman is nice to everyone. 

  • Steve: Wanda, what kind of alternate realities did you create?
  • Wanda: Well, they're like this one, only there's some where we all made different choices. And some where everybody's got the other gender. Or different preferences.
  • Steve: Whaaat?
  • Wanda: Yeah. And there's one where we're all teenagers in high school together.
  • Steve: What? Different...choices?
  • Vision: We...we're teenagers?
  • Steve: What?
  • Vision: Am I the high school?
  • Steve: What?
  • Vision: I'm the high school, aren't I?
