When ev­ery­one is throw­ing pod­cast rec­om­men­da­tions at you, or de­mand­ing that you lis­ten to their own pod­cast (mine is called Pods in the Key of Spring­field, by the way, please sub­scribe), it can be nice to have things taken out of your hands some­times with a cu­rated batch of con­tent. Wil­son is a weekly pod­cast ‘mag­a­zine’ (al­though there’s not a lot of read­ing in­volved). Each week the folks be­hind Wil­son – or guest ed­i­tors, in a few cases – present a short, themed list of pod­cast episodes that they want to rec­om­mend. For in­stance, a re­cent is­sue on se­man­tics and com­mu­ni­ca­tion fea­tured an episode of lin­guis­tics pod­cast The Al­lu­sion­ist, an episode of Re­ply All (the very best pod­cast) about Pepe the Frog and the mean­ing of memes, and four other episodes feed­ing into this theme. The folks at Wil­son have great taste – I’m writ­ing this while lis­ten­ing to an ex­cel­lent in­ter­view with Phan­tom Thread di­rec­tor Paul Thomas An­der­son – and the app’s na­tive play func­tions mean that you can lis­ten to the episode with­out need­ing to load it up through your pod­catcher of choice.
