Aimee Mann and Ted Leo Start New Podcast

Ted Leo and Aimee Mann have announced a new podcast.

We talked to a broad array of people from many backgrounds and many regions of the creative spectrum, including musicians, of course, but also comedians, speechwriters, screenwriters, illustrators, painters, authors, directors, producers, and more than a few who maybe lean one way or another, but are ultimately pretty hard to categorize. It was fascinating and fun for us, but, done sporadically over the course of pretty much the entirety of 2018, it wasn’t until we looked back recently at the body of interviews we’d collected, that it seemed like something real, that made sense and hung together as a series.

Best of 2018 (Encore Episode 160)

We are back with a special episode of Encore to talk about our favorite albums (and other things) of 2018. I am joined by Craig Manning as we run down our personal best of 2018 lists as well as the full contributor list. We talk about surprises, sleeper albums, disappointments, and try and work through why certain albums ended up in certain spots.

Introducing Chat Sematary

It took me much longer to get around to writing something up on my new podcast than I intended, but here we are. Chat Sematary is my new Stephen King podcast. I’m breaking down his bibliography and many of the adaptations that followed. As of right now, I have roughly 10 episodes in the bag and four that you can listen to now (five if you want to include the trailer).

For the most part, I’ll be experiencing a lot of his novels for the first time. I had read a handful out of order when I first started reading his works and then I decided to start from the top and run through them in the order of release. That led me to the idea for this podcast and it’s going to be a lengthy process. Right now, there are roughly 150 episodes to plan out. That number will change as King continues to release novels, short stories, and novellas and as more adaptations come out.

If you’re a King fan, even in the slightest, you just might find something to enjoy with this podcast. I’m not going to claim to be an expert on his works and how everything ties in, but I’m having a lot of fun discussing everything. I’m also always open to having new guests on the podcast, so if you or anyone you know might be interested, get in touch with me on Twitter.

You can find the podcast on Transistor to listen and subscribe and on Twitter and Instagram. There’s even a thread for both of my shows on the Chorus.fm forum.

The Podcast Worm: Halloween Unmasked

Halloween Unmasked is my kind of podcast. I’m three episodes in on it, and it feels like a new take on film podcasts. Usually, I’m listening to pop culture podcasts that are discussion-based (and mostly hosted by dudes). I listen to shows like Fatman On Batman (now branded Fatman Beyond), The Watch, and Channel 33, which has a lot of sub-shows within its feed. I listen to a lot of shows from The Ringer.
