The great stretches of headphone listening time that come with house cleaning are one of my favorite things about the job. Of course I listen to the NPR standbys that anchor the medium – This American Life, Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me, Snap Judgement, Planet Money. Here are some of my other favorites:
All Killa No Filla – two British comedians talk about serial killer cases. Creepy and funny.
Myths and Legends – ancient myths, retold with love and a little sarcasm
The Allusionist – thoughtful short takes on language and culture
The Bugle – very silly politics podcast. Lord knows we need a laugh.
Lore – creepy stories from history.
Alice Isn’t Dead – a story about – zombies, I think? From the Nightvale people
