I sometimes feel that my closest friends and family don’t understand the language that I speak. I blame this almost solely on The Simpsons.
I’m constantly refreshing my Pocket Casts recommendation feed in order to find new shows to pick up. There have been more than a few times where it has worked in my favor such as the time where it suggested Detective (just finished its absolutely incredible first season and I will be reviewing it), Theoretically Speaking (which introduced me to the amazing Christian Bök), and an independent radio drama production of The Long Halloween (one of the single best Batman graphic novels and a great podcast). However, out of all the podcasts the app has suggested, I’m not sure any of them have blown me away like Limetown.
Limetown is a monthly fictional audio series about a small town in Tennessee where all of its residents disappeared overnight, never to be heard from again.
If you’ve read my original post about how to get into podcasts, you may have been anxiously awaiting a follow up post where I give you all some recommendations on where to start. Given that Halloween is in the air and, as luck would have it, I have three very solid podcasts that fit in the horror genre , I’ll be spending the next few entries of this series reviewing them until Halloween. So grab you headphones, turn down the lights, and get ready to listen.
Much like the rest of the world, I became obsessed with Podcasts after binge-listening through the 12 episode perfection of Serial. Even though I caught wind of the show at episode nine and was able to blaze through the previous eight episodes (five of which were dusted in the first day of discovering the show), I felt the cultural resonance, indescribable frustration of not knowing where it was headed, and the unfolding of something unlike anything that I had ever heard before.
