I listen to a lot of podcasts, and I know there's at least a small number of Homestuck fans who are also fans of Welcome to Nightvale, but many I know only really listen Nightvale and maybe Serial, so I thought it might be neat to open a general podcast thread, to discuss podcasts and recommend new ones to people. So I guess I'll start with a few recommendations.
- Fantasy Fiction/Tales from the Tavern is about two hosts, Dominic Moschitti, and formerly Josh Henderson, both from Continue?, and their friends writing and then reading each other fantasy fiction short-stories in their own fantasy worlds based on audience submitted prompts. The humour is very "base" and quite blue collar for much of it, but there's definitely a brilliance behind it if you're willing to put up with it. Not for everyone, but fans of fantasy and fiction who don't take either too seriously should be able to find something in it for them.
- Fistshark Marketing is a bit hard to describe. To say it's kind of what you might think of if you pictured a Twilight Zone-esque SNL skit about Marketing taken to the extreme wouldn't be inaccurate. Very peculiar, and prolly not up most peoples' alley, but if it's for you, there's not a lot else like it I can think of.
- The Thrilling Adventure Hour is a light-hearted and fun sort of parody/sort of homage to old time radio serializations, like you might be familiar with from Fallout 3's Derring Dashwood radio tales. TTAH is comprised of several serialized stories, including but not limited to: the Futurama-esque "Sparks Nevada, Marshall on Mars", the ghost-hunting antics of two classy drunkards "Beyond Belief", the Doctor Horrible-esque superhero parody "Captain Lazerbeam", and the Doctor Who parody "The Cross-Time Adventures of Colonel Tick-Tock". It's also the most family-friendly listening of these three recommendations if that's a concern for you.
