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. Each episode our Castologists Liz, Patrick 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.

    Blackout, 30 For 30: The Sterling Affair, and Best Judies

    Blackout, 30 For 30: The Sterling Affair, and Best Judies

    Look it was only a matter of time before Nick brought another sports podcast. He swears it's more about racism but we will have to listen to 30 For 30: The Sterling Affair to find out. Liz has found a podcast by the people who created the Castology-fave Carrier. It's called Blackout, its apocalyptic and it stars Rami Malek. Then Zane gets some "friends of Dorothy" together for Best Judies, an LGBTQIA+ podcast that celebrates the people that made and continue to make up the community. Then REVIEW TIME.

    BONUS Nick's Audition

    Have you ever wondered what it takes to become a Castologist? We, even if you haven’t you are about to get a brief window into the audition process we subjected Nick to before he could join our exulted ranks.

    Zane threw him a curveball in this one, just to see how he would handle it. Listen at your own risk, as things get weird!

    In this episode we talk about ‘Believed’ (which NIck has recommended on our regular episodes) and ‘Pounded In The Butt By My Own Podcast’ (which Zane had been hiding away for just such an opportunity).

    The Secret Room, The Press Box, and Monster Presents: Insomniac

    The Secret Room, The Press Box, and Monster Presents: Insomniac

    This week Zane has a secret... well, many secret in fact. His recommendation is The Secret Room and looks at the stories no one ever tells. Nick takes a look at the media taking a look at politics through a comedic lens with The Press Box. And then Liz brings a podcast not because she loves it but because she's not sure. Does she actually like Monster Presents: Insomniac or does she just really want to like it?

    Scriptnotes, The Podcast For Laundry, and The Irrationally Exuberant

    Scriptnotes, The Podcast For Laundry, and The Irrationally Exuberant

    Remember when Nick recommended the super-niche podcast Containers? You know, the one about containers of the shipping variety? Well Liz decided it was time for a niche podcast war and here we are with The Podcast For Laundry. Zane has a rather theatrical listener submission with The Irrationally Exuberant, and Nick goes to Hollywood with Scriptnotes. Then it's time to let you all know what we thought of last week's recommendations.

Great Podcast!

A podcast about podcasts! How do you beat it? The co-host have great chemistry and have great taste as well! They haven’t steered me wrong yet! Definitely recommend!

A Must Listen!

Loving this podcast! It’s a great way to learn about other podcasts and there’s a 100% chance that they’ve reviewed at least one of your favorite podcasts. They have great insight and their banter makes them fun to listen to. A great way to find new podcasts and a must listen!

I am obsessed with this

I am always looking for the next new poscast to get involved in and these guys make it so easy. Their on air chemistry is really engaging and all three "castologists" have really different opinions so you get to know who you agree with more and it can open you up to a range of podcasts you'd never have listened to otherwise. This is the podcast we needed.
