Do you guys have any podcast recs?? I love the Penbumbra Podcast, the Bright Sessions and The Adventure Zone but wait for episodes to come out os killing me :,,(
Hello @actuallyaghostthanks, first of all, you have an amazing taste in podcasts!! I must admit, I wasn’t really sure in what direction to go for my recommendations, based on these three podcasts. Do you like podcasts with a good LGTBTQ+ representation? Or a paranormal mystery? Or a bit more Sci-Fi?
So I guess I’ll just put a bit of all of this into your recommendation list. Also you should check out this list for more podcasts with an LGBTQ+ cast (and keep your eyes open, I’m currently working on a part 2) this one for spooky podcasts, and these for horror if that’s your thing)
And here are some more podcasts I’m pretty sure you’ll enjoy:
While I must admit that I had to give up on the podcast (for various reasons), I still highly recommend it. It has Sci-Fi, time travel, parallel universes (I think?), and an amazing lead character
One of my favourite podcasts by far! The only reason I haven’t posted a review yet is that all my thoughts about it are way too long. It uses all the tropes and cliches of the Investigative Journalism genre, and turns them into a hilarious, diverse, and thrilling story. It starts off great and becomes more amazing with each episode
The adventures of a doctor on Space Station EOS 10. There is political conspiracies, medical emergencies, and a dangerous fugitive hiding in the space station. Also, sentient christmas trees!
This podcast is not the type of podcast you think it is after the first one or two episodes. I’m not saying it gets better, I’m not saying it gets worse. I’m just saying that you might expect Twin Peaks or Silent Hill, and you get … were-bunnies, a bizarre city council election, and one of the main characters dating the Devil. While Return Home sure does have it’s serious and dark moments, it’s way more fun than the first episodes make it seem to be. Can’t wait for the new season!
When Big Data uses tropes and cliches of the Investigative Journalism genre and turns it into something hilarious, The Black Tapes (find our review here) and its spin-off TANIS simply use these tropes. I enjoy this type of narration a lot, and binge listened to the first seasons of both shows within a few days. While I do think the quality dropped a bit as the stories progressed, I still highly recommend both The Black Tapes (with a focus on the paranormal and occult) and TANIS (with a focus on … creepy pasta and internet conspiracies). It should also be said that I’m not the biggest fan of the people behind the podcasts …
I must admit I’m only a few episodes in, but I enjoy the mix of horror and comedy: “The Year: 1971AD. The Place: The City of Swinging London. The Mission: To Destroy all Monsters.” Also I love that it’s a bit of a different setting from all the other podcasts. You should definitely give it a try.
A Sci-Fi drama that’s only one episode old! So it’s still too soon to say much about it, but I liked the first episode a lot, it’s well written, well acted, and I’m excited to find out what happens next. All in all a very promising start!
This one is quite different from most other podcasts I’ve recommended so far. It’s the story of a young girl who follows a mysterious giant who suddenly appears from the ocean and walks across the US. It’s an odd one, this podcast, but captivating, and a very unique experience. I’m not sure if it’s for everyone, but I sure did enjoy it!
I hope you’ll find something you like! Also, feel free to scroll through our tags to find more specific podcasts!
