Each episode of Almanac delivers a multi-course collection of conversations and presentations about current events, the arts, technology, and society. You’ll never know what you’ll find inside, but you’ll find it interesting. Hosted by Andy Ihnatko.
Simply Look Around
Show Launch! This is the training cassette for the Almanac podcast. All new hires must listen in full, witnessed by HR. Also: Andy has just heard that Trump has won an electoral victory. Future episodes will be edited for length, and notably less boozy.
The show was great...all one of them.
Not sure what happened to this podcast. Nearly two months ago this new show was launched on Relay FM and it was typical Ihnatko...insightful, witty and a pleasure to listen to. That was the first episode...and in the subsequent six weeks it has been followed up by complete radio silence. No comment from Relay FM's Myke Hurley or Andy Ihnatko on the status of the show. It's tough to get into a podcast that doesn't seem to have any sort of apparent support from the podcast network or consistent release schedule. I give the show content (for one episode) 5 stars. I give the scheduling and inconsistency 1 star. Subscribe to the show and then forget about it and maybe every so often a new episode will appear in your podcast feed (hopefully). If and when they do you'll definitely enjoy them, but don't get your heart set on seeing any sort of consistent release schedule.
Not sure if I want to invest time in this.
Listened to Ihnatko's Almanac for five years and am a huge fan of Andy's but over the last year months would go by without an episode and no explanation. I am not sure how switching networks will fix that. If episodes are released on a regular basis I will reconsider subscribing.
Andy is a great host with insightful info
