PODCASTS! People love them! And those who don’t? Well, they just haven’t been enlightened yet. But how in the heck do you figure out which ones are worth listening to? Castology, that’s how.
In each episode, our Castologists Brit, Harry, and Zane will review some of the best (and sometimes not-so-best) podcasts around. They’ll also do the hard work and trawl the RSS feeds to find the newest podcasts that should be on your radar. Will they always agree with each other’s picks? Probably not! But hey, you’re clever, you know that’s how reviews work.

    #scripted #fiction #comedy
    Adventures in New America is the first sci-fi, political satire, Afrofuturistic buddy comedy, serialized for New Americans in a new and desperate time.
    Set a few years in the future, Adventures in New America follows the escapades of two mismatched African-New-American best friends — fat, lonely, curmudgeon IA and lesbian sneak-thief Simon Carr — who take on a series of increasingly wild heists to get quick cash to pay for IA’s medical treatment while attempting to survive the wilds of New New York City — and a secret cabal of Tetchy Terrorist Vampire Zombies from outer space. Intrigued? Good! Frequently, there will be musical numbers... and radical reflections on our dangerous, beautiful, heart-pounding world.

    From the depths of their grief, the Boylands vow to figure out what happened to Rosanne. Her brother-in-law, Justin Cave, reaches out to an old high school friend he hopes can help: MSNBC journalist Ayman Mohyeldin.

    TWIOAT is an award-winning smash hit comedy podcast hosted by kiwi comedians Guy 'Flash' Montgomery and Tim 'Timbly' Batt (known jointly as the Frost Fellas, The Boiz, etc). The pair have been punishing themselves with movies for your enjoyment since Feb 2014, starting by watching and reviewing Grown-Ups 2 once a week, every week, for a full year. They applied the same treatment to Sex and The City 2, Sex and The City, We Are You Friends, and are now watching and reviewing every softcore adult film in the Emmanuelle franchise. Sub-projects include My Week With Cats, where the pair went to see CATS (2019) at the cinema every day for a week, and Podcast In A Tree which saw them record while in different trees around Aotearoa New Zealand.

    Harry Recommends- Reply All
    At its most basic, Reply all is a podcast about the internet. It explores stories about how people shape the internet, and how the internet shapes people. Hugely successful and arguably seminal, Reply All gained a massive listenership based on the originality of its stories, and intelligence of its writing, and the chemistry of its hosts. In 2021 it released a controversial episode series that led to its decline and eventual cancellation in recent history.

They Got The Goods!!

Quite enjoyed the presentation of this podcast on ..... podcasts. A unique format and felt that Zane, Nick and Liz were well balanced with their reviews and tended to present their opinions by giving a bit of grace to the podcast, even if they didn't particularly like it.
