Tee likes to recommend new podcasts for me to check out. Her recommendations are always good, but I have to absorb them one at a time; when I try to incorporate too many new podcasts into my podcast diet, I get overwhelmed.
My current podcast diet includes Happier With Gretchen Rubin; Podcast For America; About Race; Dear Sugar; Magic Lessons; The Total Soccer Show; Slate’s Audio Book Club; CNN Debates; Invisibilia; Serial (I keep waiting for a little red 1 to pop up on that one!); On The Media (which I only occasionally listen to); and Death Sex & Money.
I’m caught up on all my regular podcasts, so the other day I decided to check out my phone’s top podcasts chart. A new podcast was at the top of the list, in the number one spot; it was called Limetown. I decided to download it to see what it was all about.
I am totally hooked!
The first time I listened, I thought that Limetown was a Serial-type podcast, a reporter re-investigating an old true crime-esque story – in Limetown‘s case, the disappearance of over three hundred people from a research facility in Tennessee. I got extremely excited listening to the first episode, and texted several friends telling them that another real life, true crime, suspenseful, intriguing, addictive podcast was now available for download.
Yeah – I was wrong. Limetown is fictional. My bad. But – it’s still awesome!
Only parts one and two are currently available; the story will supposedly be told in seven parts, and my googling indicates that a new episode will be available every two weeks or so. I keep checking my phone to see the little red 1 pop up. (See? Just like Serial!) And I hope this new podcast continues to be as intriguing and compelling as its first two episodes were. For now, Limetown definitely has a space reserved in my podcast diet.
Writer’s Note – As of 10/19/15, I am feeling a little down on Limetown. I think the wait time between episodes – almost a month between episodes 2 and 3 – causes my interest to wane. However, I’m going to stick with it and hope for the best!
