Shows you download, usually on your phone, and then listen to. “Oh, it’s just talk radio,” you say, and you’re correct in general, but wrong in almost every particular. Generally it is people talking, yes. There are few, if any, interpretive dance-only podcasts. But talk-radio is almost exclusively about either Jesus, or how anyone who isn’t an old white man is out to get you, an old white man. Podcasts are about any number of things, from drunken Dungeons and Dragons, to interviews with celebrities where they’re only allowed to talk about their dogs, to people trying to figure out what the movie We Bought a Zoo is about based only on the title. You’re not getting that on NPR. Not even on weekends. 4.9/5
