a place for zinesters - writers and readers
When I go out for bike rides to pick up my mail, or various other in town errands, I like to listen to podcasts. Either I have already listened to the ones worth listening to, or I am just not looking in the right place. Are there any recommended podcasts?
I have already listened to all of the Nobody Cares About Your Stupid Zine and ZINECORE Radio podcasts. Are there any more?
Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thanks :-)
not sure if you're looking specifically for zine-related podcasts, or podcasts in general, but i've got some good comedy recommendations as someone who has been an avid listener of podcasts since terrestrial talk radio took a rapid decline.
my favorite podcast is WTF with Marc Maron. if you like what's been dubbed "alternative comedy" then it's likely that you'll take a liking to him. it's my understanding that this podcast has recently been picked up by NPR, and will be airing sometime in autumn. for now, it's available on iTunes.
the adam carolla podcast and the greg fitzsimmons podcast are great, and so is The Smartest Man in the World podcast, which is hosted by greg proops.
hope some of this helps!
There was just an episode of Zinecore Radio last Thursday - http://www.blogtalkradio.com/thezineshow
I don't know of any other zine-related podcasts, but my two favorites are both comedy: the Nerdist podcast with Chris Hardwick, Jonah Ray and Matt Mira, and the Pod F. Tompkast by Paul F. Tompkins. I get em both through iTunes but here are the sites:
WTF with Marc Maron's not bad either as Brian recommended, and you can get some pretty good Radio Labs and This American Life, etc. if you're into NPR.
Looking forward to checking out everyone else's recommendations, thanks for posting this!
ZINECORE Radio is going weekly! I am looking for people to come on and read from their zines, announce call for submissions, plug up coming zine events, etc. DIY music to play of all kinds.... contact me if you wanna participate in what i;m working on making a weekly zine show!
Thanks again to Nicole of Click Clack Distro who did an amazing reading on the show last Thursday! <3
