Welcome all mavericks

Oddball finds creative people in all corners of American life — and shines a light, even as the cockroaches run for cover. Critical, humorous, insightful and unpredictable. The latest interview w. C.C. Arshagra traces the path from the Open Mike Poetry of the 90s to the confused and exhilarating current soundscape of internet platforms, endlessly cruising YouTube, Podcastlandia and FaceBook livestreams. Words will find a way and if we tune in we might even become more human, according to Arshagra.

I can’t get enough

This show just keeps getting better every week. I love the content and interview style. Add this to your podcast list. It’s a must listen.

A show for all moods

I was feeling musical today and of course, Oddball had a ton of great shows with artists I love. Whether I want to hear perspectives from musicians, writers, politicians, mental health experts, whatever. I'll never stop turning to this show. Seriously, it has everything and never disappoints.
