Podcast Playlist

These podcasts are straight from the top of the charts

Get inside the trenches of a Juggalo march or examine the power of jokes with W. Kamau Bell. Our favourite podcasts share their best stuff.

Music making ninjas, a murdering monkey, and the Dolly Parton/Sylvester Stallone musical comedy no one asked for. These are just a few of the so-bad-they're-good movie plots discussed on How Did This Get Made

Podcasts about movies and film making have become a dime a dozen. But  that's exactly what makes How Did This Get Made? stand out. I've been listening since 2010, and the show just gets better and better. 

Every time I see a new episode appear in my feed, I smile. 
This episode made me laugh so hard I almost cried.
This episode was so heartwarming I actually cried.

It's healing to listen to something that's frivolous but also super witty and charming. 2017 has been one for the books (to put it lightly...) and finding a new episode of HDTGM in my feed every week is such a treat. That's why it's my pick of the week.
