Podcasts That Arent Serial
- •Song Exploder10-15 minute episodes where a musician breaks apart the creative and technical thought behind one of their songs. Simple concept perfectly executed.
- •The Flop HouseThree dudes (including Daily Show Head writer/funniest living human Elliot Kalan) watch a bad movie and then discuss. Many podcasts share this concept but only one deserves your time.
- •Start-UpA serialized podcast that chronicles a former This American Lifer who sets out to create his own podcast company. Like Serial, it takes place in real time and is brilliantly produced.
- •Bret Easton Ellis PodcastNot a creative title but still the smartest, most thought-provoking podcast there is. BEE takes an hour to have movie and pop culture-centric discussions with interesting guests. Every episode begins with a 8-10 minute long monologue/thought piece read by Bret. @BretEastonEllis
- •Dinner Party DownloadShort, well produced vignettes that revolve around setting up a dinner party. You've got ice breakers, fun facts, celebrity curated playlists, and informative interviews. It moves quickly and is chalked full of fun tidbits and entertaining stories.
