POD PAIRS

ELLE (UK) - - Elle Play -

WE’RE NOT THE ONLY ONES OB­SESSED WITH POD­CASTS: ma­jor TV stu­dios are now look­ing to them for their next com­mis­sion. With six mil­lion monthly lis­ten­ers, it’s no sur­prise that Aaron Mahnke’s hor­ror pod­cast Lore caught the at­ten­tion of Ama­zon Stu­dios, which has com­mis­sioned a 10-episode TV se­ries start­ing on 6 Oc­to­ber. With Mahnke’s real-life tales now strad­dling pod­cast and TV form, here are three more pod­cast pair­ings to get be­hind.

WEL­COME TO NIGHT VALE + STRANGER THINGS

Fort­nightly pod­cast Wel­come to Night Vale is a mock ra­dio sta­tion re­veal­ing cryp­tic hap­pen­ings in a fic­tional town. Get into it along­side the re­turn of Wi­nona Ry­der and co for sea­son two of the oth­er­worldly Stranger Things.

NANCY + TRANS­PAR­ENT ‘Su­per queer, su­per fun’ duo Kathy Tu and Tobin Low host Nancy, a pod­cast ex­plor­ing LGBTQ is­sues. Tune in along­side gen­der-iden­tity com­edy Trans­par­ent, which, like the pod­cast, veers from side-split­ting hu­mour to sear­ing hon­esty.

2 DOPE QUEENS + IN­SE­CURE From ir­rev­er­ent chat about

Spanx to nu­anced de­bate on cul­tural ap­pro­pri­a­tion, no topic is off lim­its for 2 Dope Queens, aka Phoebe Robinson and Jes­sica Wil­liams. Pair with Sky At­lantic’s In­se­cure, which of­fers sim­i­larly in­sight­ful com­men­tary on the black fe­male ex­pe­ri­ence.
