Hi Anne,

Enjoyed listening to these episodes. 'The War Requiem', on 'shell shock' and distress in and after wartime, is very well made.

This a new podcast on Irish history. The second episode begins a four part look at vikings. I thought the pod-caster managed to bring to life Europe of the 800s (don't want to say more as it will ruin the effect, but some of the pictures painted stayed with me after the episode). I found it entertaining without being glib, had enough meaty detail to make it informative.

Hi - it's not exactly history or soccer, but we'd love to see a review of our little dog and pony show, Flash Pulp: http://skinner.fm/category/flash-pulp/

We try to pay homage to the pulp stories of the '30s and '40s, three times weekly. Even if you don't do a review, we appreciate the consideration!

Hello Anne

My name is Devyn, and i would like to submit an amazing local podcast, that i love, for review.
It is a cast made of a table of "Misfits" all attending UT dallas in different degree programs.
They discuss topics from the news, to life, all the way to answering "letters," and giving advice to listeners.

Each of them have a different view on almost everything, and it helps that they all are funny.
It is a interesting, hilarious, great podcast that i think many would enjoy.

i hope you enjoy. I sure do

DysfunctionalParrot said...

I guess I'll take a stab at self promotion. In all fairness, I'm somewhat of an upstart production and not really well known...yet!

The podcast covers news,politics,religion and comes from the angle of a cynical, pragmatic Christian worldview.

I'm just looking for some honest feedback.

Hello,

I ran into your review site tonight. Very impressive and insightful reviews.

We have an ongoing sociology podcast that we would love to get your feedback sometime. We've been going for about a year and a half and have close to 50 episodes. We discuss recent research done by sociologists and social scientists more broadly and interview researchers who we think are doing interesting work. Our goal is to make sociology accessible and interesting for the broader public.

We're located in the society pages domain and the podcast is called office hours

Hi Anne,

I'd really appreciate you reviewing our podcast: The Ministry of Geek, a light-hearted, entertaining and often-times acerbic take on technology issues and geekdom from Downunder (in an easily digestible 30-40 minute format).

We're getting great word of mouth down here, but would love to pick up some global listeners out there who might enjoy our unique vibe.

Kind regards,
Richard F

As usual I can't recommend Margaret Anderson more highly! Her lectures are a real treasure. No matter how much or how little previous exploration one has made into the history of our culture, no matter how vague or concrete one's views, there is much in her coursework for everyone. There are many enjoyable and profitable podcasts available, but if I were asked to recommend only one, her's would be my choice.

Hi Anne!

I write children's poetry and decided to create a podcast of me reading them - for children who don't have my book, for those who want to read along or just listen in the car.
So far, I've only read published poems (52), and they're in the same order as the book. But now that my Podcast has been out for a month, I'll start adding more new and unpublished poems...
Anything to give parents a few minutes break while sparking the imaginations of their children!

Right now on Podbean, I am the 3rd most listened to podcast in the Kids/Family category.
I'd love it if you'd review my work:

http://www.simpletoremember.com/authors/a/crash-course-jewish-history-mp3s/

Not strictly speaking a podcast, but a collection of MP3 audio lectures on Jewish history from the Old Testament stories to the present day. Rabbi Ken Spiro gives not only the history of the Jewish people, but also a good insight into Jewish beliefs and their interpretation of history. Very clear and entertaining presentation suitable for an audience without a background in history. Total duration is about 24 hours.

The Inverse Delirium podcast is a comedic take on public radio, produced in Baltimore, USA. Inspired by the likes of Monty Python, Mr Show, Daffy Duck, and Word Jazz, each 12-minute show features interviews and sketches straight from the mind of creator Geoffrey Welchman. Watch the line between reality and reality podcasting blur!

I've been doing a podcast for about 6 months about cult movies. Either I'll get comedians to come on the show to review and make fun of a movie or I'll have an interview with someone who's been in or made a cult hit. Often both in one episode. THe show is fun and fast moving.

We also have some comedy bits.

Past guests have included, actors from Uwe Boll's films, from "Pluto Nash," "Troll 2" and "Dirty Love" among others.

Comedians have included, Todd Levin (Conan), Adam Felber (npr), Al Madrigal, Steve Agee and Chris Spencer.

Hi Anne. Here's something to get your ears around on foreign policy - the podcasts that we put together here at ECFR, a think tank. The main ones are ECFR reports and ECFR agenda, but we also have a few in Spanish, German, French and Italian.

There's some big names there, but the main idea is to go slightly beyond the level of expertise of most newspaper podcasts, and to try to keep the length below ten minutes where possible, looking at issues in the news like Libya or Egypt, or some of the other big questions in foreign policy.

I hope you enjoy!

Is it bad form to ask for your own podcast to be reviewed? If it isn't I'd love any comments or criticism you'd be willing to provide.

My podcast is, the Fantasy Movie Podcast. Its dedicated to reviewing fantasy movies (and ocassionally fantasy tv series).

European Cultural History Course

http://history.wisc.edu/mosse/george_mosse/audio_lectures.htm

About 70 lectures given by George L Mosse at the University of Wisconsin Madison - quite a few years ago.

I used the "downloadthemall" program to download the MP3s. This was a bit of work to do as you have to go to each lecture page separately for a lot of the lectures.

I have not yet listened to them all, but what excerpts I have listened to have given me a good flavour, and I look forward to listening to the whole course.

Love your site!

Hello, we'd love it if you could take a look at We Are Not Alone, the 1950s science fiction sketch comedy podcast.

Here's the pitch:
Enter the strange world of mad scientists, out of control robots and cold war paranoia in the 1950s science fiction themed We Are Not Alone comedy podcasts.
Are you constantly plagued by mad scientists trying to rule the world? Do you reminisce about the days when we all feared for our existence due to nuclear warheads pointing at our homes? Do you long for the days before the invention of shower gel and regional accents?
Join us for a re-evaluation of  history past, present and future. Come on in, the conspiracy is lovely.

To whom it may concern,

My name is Syd. I conduct a comedy podcast named The Argument. It usually makes special time for the ridiculous, or otherwise absurd kinds of debates you get into with your friends about nothing and everything. These topics rarely, if ever, include anything of any social substance, as we prefer to discuss things like "Immortality: Would You Life Forever If You Could?" or the merits of using Facebook or not. The podcast is recorded in Louisville, KY. This is something we're revisiting, as the Argument was a podcast we'd initially conducted about three to four years ago, and those episodes should soon be up again, so we should have approximately 26 episodes. Fair warning, we are often rambly and prone to R-Rated comments about whatever our subject matter is; we rarely censure ourselves. You can find information about the podcast here: http://argument.louisvillehardcore.com/ You can listen to it there, or find the numerous places it is available for consumption.

Hope this finds you well,
Syd

Howdy -

I stumbled onto your site while looking for avenues on how to promote my weekly podcast - which is posted every Wednesday (and sometimes Friday's).

I'd love for you to give it a listen!

Here is a description of the show:

The Bumperpodcast is an oftentimes hilarious weekly romp around Headquarters, in Coffee-Can Alley, with Natty Bumpercar and his entire gaggle of pals! Giggle in wonder as Robot sneaks into the studio. Smile with joy when Baby Bumpercar visits the studio. Stare with amazement when Doodle Poodle and a bunch of other characters say a lot of things about a lot of things and just know that Pig is the best pig that has ever stepped to a microphone - ever. A lot of tremendous stuff can happen in a short amount of time - and we prove that every week on the Bumperpodcast!


Here is a link to the archive … We've got 91 episodes up!

http://www.nattybumpercar.com/bumperpodcast-archive/

New shows are posted on the blog each Wednesday.

Thanks for your time … Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks a ton,

Seymour Jacklin said...

Hello, Anne,

I have been podcasting my short fiction as "Stories from the Borders of Sleep" for the last 6 months. I have recently started putting up a new episode every week and I'm hoping to generate some more interest by having the podcast reviewed.

The podcast is available on iTunes and at:

http://www.bordersofsleep.com

The stories are diverse but have threads of fantasy and mysticism running through them, some of them are rewritten fairy tales or biographical snippets. I aim to transport the listener in their imagination and provide the perfect bedtime story.

Although I write for adults I make sure that the stories are appropriate for family listening and would suit anyone from 5 upwards (my nephews love them).

Thanks for the incredibly comprehensive catalogue of reviewed podcasts that you are growing here. It is surprising how few sites are dedicated to this but you are clearly leading the field!

Keep up the good work.

Best regards,

Seymour.

Hi Anne!

I wanted to submit a podcast that I host to you in hopes that you'll enjoy.

I t is called "Sounds Like An Earful" and it is all about getting curious with our ears. We talk about music and sound design, but keep it rooted in day to day life. I ask friends and strangers to participate in lots of cool sound experiments as well as write and record all of the original music. I’d definitely appreciate your ears if you have some free time to check it out!

You appreciate our consideration for this review! Thanks for listening. You are probably wondering why we went into podcasting, well, it's because such an elite class of professionals actually make it and just having one is validation in itself. Knowing we've arrived is priceless. I had a feeling you were wondering how we felt about that! Well feel free to drop me a line and we might go bear-shopping in the Andes together. I'm staying at the cocaine monastery, so look me up (wink).

Bye now. I'm hanging up on you. Seriously, don't bring it up again! We've had this argument too many times and frankly I've had it up to here! Where? Oh don't be snarky with me. I'm a hangnail away from chopping off your scratchy toes.

Thanks!

Loren said...

I produce the podcast Movies You Should Love, and would be very grateful for a review.

Movies You Should Love is like film school without the tuition. Loren and Scott take on classic and current films and break them down, explaining what makes them tick and why people love them today.

Through in depth film analysis, they pick apart, analyze, critique, mock, and dig into classic films, mediocre movies, and modern masterpieces.

Hi,

I'm one of the hosts of the newish literary podcast, Book Fight, in which we discuss books in an intelligent and analytical, but irreverent way, similar to the kinds of conversations two writers might have in a bar.

Mike Ingram, the other host, and I, are both published authors and editors of the literary journal Barrelhouse, in addition to being creative writing professors.

I hope you'll check it out and give it a review. We're in the Itunes store and at bookfightpod.com

DigMeOut said...

Hi Anne, I'm the producer and co-host of the Dig Me Out Podcast.

We started in January 2011 revisiting lost, forgotten, overlooked and under-appreciated college, indie, alternative and hard rock of the 1990s.

Each show focuses on one album, sometimes with guest reviewers, sometimes with members of the bands themselves, dissecting songwriting, recording, etc., trying to uncover the hidden gems of 90s.

We try not to get too deep into music-geek speak, keeping things conversational for the everyday music fan.

The podcast is on iTunes and Stitcher, links on digmeoutpodcast.com

Daniel Froehling said...

Hey Anne,

I'm a young podcaster in college who earlier tried starting up a little politics podcast with a few of my friends. Unfortunately, none of them showed up to the recordings and left me saddled with paying for operating the podcast and not much to talk about history-wise. The podcast was called History on the Run and you gave it an honest review as more about the politics than the history....which weren't very good either. Fast forward four years and I'm in college quadruple majoring in History, Economics, Poly Sci, and Global Studies and running a podcast on the side for fun where I get to interview professors, talk about history, and break things down into little 20 minute chunks. I'm available on Itunes, and I'd love whatever criticism you can throw my way to make the podcasts better.

-Thank you

Hi, I was wondering if you can review a podcast called D Saint Radio.

(http://dsaintradioblog.wordpress.com)
I listened to their "Bonus Episode" and quite honestly could not stop laughing at their jokes.

Anonymous said...

I'm an avid podcast listener. I just discovered your blog and it's a great resource, so thank you for doing this.

I'm surprised no one has recommended "Oh No Ross and Carrie!" It's a hilarious and warm-hearted skeptic show. That type of podcast usually doesn't appeal to me because it consists of angry people ranting about people they hate, but Ross and Carrie are different. They're genuinely curious about the many beliefs people hold and are always funny without being cruel. I particularly recommend the two-part episode "Ross and Carrie Go Mormon". The episodes are fast-paced for a 50 minute show, and I rushed through them.

I don't have any association with ONRAC or any other podcast, I just wanted to bring attention to one of my favorite underrated podcasts.

Hi Anne,

I saw your blog about doing podcast reviews, and I have been very interested to see what a podcast reviewer would think of the program that I oversee. I work for Spy Hop Productions, a non profit youth development facility in Salt Lake City, Utah. The program that I teach is called Sending Messages. It is a storytelling podcast that is recorded and produced by teens in a lock-down youth corrections facility. Like a youth correction This American Life.

You can listen to episodes at sendingmessages.org

Hi Anne,

I'm sorry to add to your workload! But as you have such a comprehensive list of history podcasts I had to add the new "History of Byzantium" podcast.

It's a continuation of the story told in the "History of Rome" and follows the Eastern Roman Empire from 476 to 1453.

Keep up the great work.

Hope you're doing well. There's a pretty awesome podcast that came out earlier this spring. It's called Nick Nerds Out. It's hosted by a guy named Nick, and his two cohosts, Fembot Nicolette 3000, and Count Nicula. They nerd out on topics like movies, games, comics, etc. The secret to the show is that he does all the voices himself. He does them so well, and edited in a way that it's hard to tell. Hope you review it! Love the blog!

Hi, loving the blog!

A couple of months back there was a podcast called The Verbal Shotgun Effect on the New & Noteworthy section of iTunes. I thought it might be worth sending over to you for a listen.
