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

Mordy, Thursday, 6 June 2019 02:29 (four months ago) link

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.

Lol 8 months later and they’re still putting out wpisodes

Muswell Hillbilly Elegy (President Keyes), Sunday, 16 June 2019 01:25 (four months ago) link

They’re up to 90 Y or N mini eps and they may hit 100 before their 100th episode proper

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!

Ned Raggett, Monday, 15 July 2019 13:28 (three months ago) link

I'm really not enjoying It Could Happen Here, but it's kept me riveted.

полезный идиот (Sanpaku), Thursday, 18 July 2019 15:08 (three months ago) link

That podcast was good enough that I checked out the host's other show Behind the Bastards, but it's that format I kind of hate where someone presents information and two other people crack dumb jokes.

Muswell Hillbilly Elegy (President Keyes), Thursday, 18 July 2019 15:21 (three months ago) link

Yeah, my friend really likes The Dollop, but the one time I gave it a shot it sounded like a Morning Zoo thing. Like, "Welcome back to the Dollop, my name is David ... AND I'M THE SQUEEGE!"

Digging Abby Travis podcast right now: https://soundsoffpodcast.com - all LA punk luminaries, but the premise (Abby + friends walking around and doing stuff) has led to some incredible conversations. If anything just list to her and Exene walking around the City Of Orange farmers market, talking about her life prior to moving to LA and starting X. Also, don't miss the one with Kira Rossler where they walk around Hollywood and visit the Masque and the Canterbury.

I’m enjoying your podcast, Ned! It’s entertainingly nerdy, but in a way that doesn’t take it all too seriously. The right tone.

Una Palooka Dronka (hardcore dilettante), Tuesday, 30 July 2019 23:10 (two months ago) link

Thanks! Much appreciated. Spread the word and/or review if you can!

I found “the Roth show” last night, may dip a toe in

Also on the latest Robert plant one it was unexpected and nice to hear him heap praise on Townes van zandt. Didn’t get too specific but that’s ok

This Podcast Will Kill You a podcast about disease. Really quite informative and each week has a related drink called a quarantini based on some aspect of the disease so you can sip along with it.

Dressed a fashion history podcast.

Robert Evan's The War Against Everyone, on online radicalization and neo-fascism, is up.

Some XPs: his Behind the Bastards isn't that annoying, though his guests express unawareness of history more than they add humor.

hedonic treadmill class action (Sanpaku), Tuesday, 13 August 2019 01:05 (two months ago) link

On the subject of Robert Evans, I ended up dropping This Could Happen Here after three episodes - just didn't seem at all insightful to me, pointing out a lot of troubling trends and phenomena we already know about without any particular connective tissue between them. Maybe I stopped too early but it seemed to veer into wildly speculative territory after more or less promising not to.

i really enjoy the east is a podcast https://www.eastpodcast.com

The East is a Podcast is a show that focuses a critical lens on the history of the present of the modern Middle East and North Africa. Interviews with experts and archival mashups.

good eps on kashmir and yemen recently.

sound quality usually not great, lots of skyping

Hey Simon, is Hacks still a thing?

Nah, fatal scheduling issues. Blame children.

Simon H., Thursday, 12 September 2019 21:08 (one month ago) link

xp i've mentioned it many times before but if u don't already listen to the afropop worldwide podcast it combines amazing music w/ lots of great historical and contemporary information about the countries it visits and many episodes use music as a launching pad to explore much larger conflicts. i haven't listened yet but very interested in recent ep "Bolsonaro Is and Isn't" which they describe in ep description as a "look at who Bolsonaro is, who his targets are, and how he rose to power. We also hear the first round of songs written to protest his hard, right-wing politics." there was an ep a year or so ago about Kagame and his imprisoning of musician Kizito Mihigo that was v good, a recent ep about the relationship btwn haiti and DR and musical exchanges, etc.

They discuss so many great records!but I’m finding the hosts tough to take. The one guy needs to stop shouting over everyone, & they need to tighten up the editing. The episode on NoMeansNo’s Wrong, they ramble so much & never stop to give the music a chance to say its piece.

Haven’t listened to your episode yet, Hadrian. Will pass harsh judgment in the near future.

"they ramble so much & never stop to give the music a chance to say its piece."

I actually think they do a pretty good job keeping the rambling to a minimum, but agree about the music. I guess you can just pause and listen to the songs on spotify if you need to tho. Ive been loving this show recently - the level of geekery, and music theory, is just where I like it.

tobo73, Tuesday, 24 September 2019 18:12 (three weeks ago) link

I was specifically beefing about the Wrong episode — I quite enjoyed the Reckoning one, everyone knew when to pause and bask in the jangle.

Una Palooka Dronka (hardcore dilettante), Wednesday, 25 September 2019 03:31 (three weeks ago) link

Except Interrupty McInterruptison still a sore spot.

Una Palooka Dronka (hardcore dilettante), Wednesday, 25 September 2019 03:31 (three weeks ago) link

And now I’m hooked on TRGMH. The Wrong episode was terrible, otherwise a great podcast. I’d like it if they tightened up the editing & spotlighted more of the music, esp when they point out a record’s great moments.
