I found out a little while ago that the podcasting medium presents a challenge to ranking things by category. That’s because you have people doing such unique, incredible work that it really can’t be categorized. I tried to shoehorn these podcasts into my previous (now deleted) list because I desperately wanted to recommend them (and because iTunes’ recommendations had all five podcasts on the old list associated with each other), but that didn’t remotely do justice to the work these producers were doing. So if a podcast defies categorization, why not say so? Furthermore, I expect this list to grow, just because of all the great work I’ve seen happening in the podcast community
So, some of you might remember these podcasts being in a “best of list” about the “weird and the unexplained”. After listening to some of the shows on that list a bit more carefully, and thinking on my list a little more, I realized that by having some of those podcast on the same list I was kind of comparing apples and oranges. Nevertheless, they remain great podcasts. So my next two posts are going to be reorganized re-postings (not rewrites for the most part) of those lists.
So, as far as this list, these are great podcasts to listen to if you’re interested in hearing about strange legends or brushes with the unknown.
