It’s funny how one thing leads to another sometimes, especially on the infinitely connected world of the Internet. A couple of weeks ago, I was listening to Top Four #5, where Marco and Tiffany Arment were discussing their favorite podcasts. Because of their recommendation, I checked out 99 Percent Invisible, which is a great podcast. On episode #178, which is a fabulous examination of the restoration of a castle in Scotland, they included bonus audio introducing me to The Allusionist, which is an amazing and addictive podcast that I can’t believe has flown under my radar for so long. Seriously, it’s wonderful. That show, in turn, brought me at last to Answer Me This, which is a delightfully weird podcast that is almost, but not quite, entirely unexplainable. (Apologies to Mr. Adams.) It’s a comedy podcast that is as hilarious as it is strange, and I love it.
Any of the above shows, including Top Four are worth checking out. I hope you find one you enjoy as much as i enjoy these.
So now I have three great new podcasts to listen to, and each led me to the next like a trail of breadcrumbs through the dark forest of the Internet.
