More podcasts please!
Hi, guys, love the mag — especially the podcast recommendations. I’ve never been much of an audiobook person, since my mind seems to drift off and I get lost with where the story’s at and need to rewind (yes, remember cassette tapes?) to a point in the story I remember. But I have started listening to podcasts, since I find them a bit easier to listen to while I’m doing other things, particularly when there’s multiple speakers. I thoroughly enjoyed flipping through the March issue’s podcast page and decided to give listening to audiobooks another go, based on your suggestions. Limetown had me gripped! So much so that I started looking for further titles in the same vein and found The Black Tapes ( theblacktapespodcast.com). It’s back from 2015 but it’s super gripping. When can we expect the next roundup of true crime podcasts? I’m hooked, I need more! [ JACK BALTINS ]
Ed replies: True crime seems to be the genre that gets a lot of people into podcasting — you can often see them topping the iTunes podcast charts. We’re glad you enjoy the column — a follow-up true crime feature is definitely on the horizon, as is another audiobooks instalment. For now, though, we can recommend Missing Richard Simmons ( www.missingrichardsimmons.com) and also Tanis ( www.tanispodcast.com). Hopefully, those’ll hold you over for the next little while! And to any other readers who’re podcast fans, feel free to flick us a letter if you have any you’d like to recommend.
