xxp it's so gross and i'm someone who has enjoyed some of ronson's work in the past but this feels just so gratuitous and just stirring up the worst impulses of human beings to get a not particularly insightful story

i finished the whole thing bc i wanted to give ronson a chance to make all this petty human tragedy mean something but he gets nowhere

if you didn't know that the porn industry has a number of unhappy damaged ppl in it you might find it educational. even the prurient aspects are so low key and low stakes ultimately for a story about a sex industry it's just normatively bleak.

I havent listened to Ronson’s podcast & prob won’t the Rialto Report is a good interview podcast with stars & directors of porn of yore by 2 consultants from HBO’s The Deuce. It’s pretty good.

Can't imagine which would be more depressing, tales of '70s porn or tales of '10s porn.

American poetry podcasts that are good include VS (aka Versus) and Poetry Off The Shelf.

They mentioned it on a recent episode, I think it was a yacht or nyacht? Said they're doing ten more episodes so they hit 100 and then stop. Though they also hinted they'd do other things in the podcast format.

My friend's son is recording a podcast about cheese. It's called Charlie's Cheese Chat, and it's the best. Here's the second episode. It's uncanny how well this 10 year old kid gets the rhythms of grown-up podcasts down:

Probably in a minority here and Not a podcast but Have to recommend the 4 Extra rebroadcast of a great adaptation of a Mrs Henry Wood Melodromatic pot boiler; East Lynne. From back when radio 4 could expend seven hours of drama on moralising Victorian pulp fiction.

I have to say I like how actually doing a podcast has already made me more attuned to the finer points of recording and editing, as well as pacing in general — each episode is building on the last as I am able to drill down on certain points. I’m not saying we still can’t improve but it is happening!
