Are you a podcast junkie?
Many of us love to download podcasts through our smartphones and listen to amateur storytellers (The Moth), insightful interviewers (Fresh Air with Terry Gross) people who live with ghosts (Haunted).
Recently, Apple announced the best podcasts of 2018. This year, investigative reporting underpinned the immersive storytelling of shows such as American Public Media’s In the Dark, The New York Times’s “Caliphate,” along with historical deep dives like Slate’s“Slow Burn.
“Serial” takes place in Cleveland this season with an in-depth look at the court system. It’s riveting.
News and Politics grew as podcast genres in 2018 with The New York Times’s “The Daily” and Crooked Media’s “The Wilderness,” while celebrities and a healthy mix of independents topped this year’s new shows, including Dax Shepard’s “Armchair Expert,” “Oprah’s Master Class” and Parcast Network’s “Conspiracy Theories” and “Unexplained Mysteries.”
