I enjoy podcasts. With a 40 minute drive to work, they are a good way to pass the time. With the exception of two, all the podcasts I listen two are locally produced, or feature locals in them. They are shows put on by fellow Geeks, talking about stuff they enjoy. They don’t make a living off talking, sometimes they are a bit rough, and for the most part they sound fantastic. Today, for #FollowFriday, I’m going to tell you where to find many of these shows on Twitter (my preferred social platform), and I encourage you to give them all a follow. This is by no means an all inclusive list, and I know I have skipped a few, completely on accident. However, what I know of right now is right here, listed in alphabetical order, as to not show any favoritism!
So, who should you be following?
- Cult Cinema Cavalcade – I discovered this podcast during the podcaster’s panel at Who’s Yer Con. Brandon and Cullen, with the occasional guest, talk about, well, cult cinema! My introduction was the episode covering Death Bed: The Bed That Eats and I haven’t regretted the subscription a bit!
- Established Facts, The – I have extolled their virtues before, but it’s not enough. This group is a ton of fun to listen to, whether it’s about gaming, their convention experiences, or talking about wrestling. They are also great people, and have helped me out a few times, so I want as many people as possible to know about them, follow them, and listen to them!
- Five(ish) Fangirls, The – Okay, they are scattered all across North America, but Rachel is awesome, and she’s from Indiana, so they’re included! Tangents and squee are their brand, and they love talking about their favorite fandoms, and they’re entertaining to listen to!
- Gaming with Scott – This is a good crew that does recorded gaming sessions, as well as convention follow-up. Give them a follow, and see what’s up with them!
- Nerds Domain – This is the main account for multiple podcasts. Some cover gaming sessions, one (that needs more episodes!) covers a watch through of Star Trek, and one is general nerdery! Give them a follow, and a listen!
- Obsessive Viewer, The – This one is a two-fer! Matt runs both the Obsessive Viewer podcast, along with Tiny, talking about movies and entertainment. He also runs the solo podcast, Anthology, which looks at Twilight Zone, as well as other anthology programming. Follow him, and watch the fanboying increase as more stuff comes out about The Dark Tower.
- Sci [and/or] Fi – This is a brand new podcast, with only
twothree episodes (third posted today, 5.26.17). Looking at science and pop culture, it features Lucas (a scientist) and Taylor (not a scientist) talking about things like the bowel movement habits of mammals.
- Video Store, The – Finally, this is a brand new podcast that hasn’t even put out its first episode. The folks involved are pretty dang awesome, though, so I don’t doubt this will be a great piece! Give them a follow, and get on the ground floor!
See you next week, folks!
