Podcasts That Gail Carriger Loves (Miss Carriger Recommends)

Lately, as it becomes more widely known what an addict I am, I am frequently asked about which podcasts I enjoy. I listen to A LOT, Gentle Reader. However, I don’t think you really care about all of them, do you?

Here is a pretty comprehensive list of some of my favorites as of April 2014. (Podcasts are always pod fading and then I need to find new ones, so there is a constant stream of me trying something out, but these are the old work horses.)

When do I find the time to listen?

I listen when I am driving or biking, doing any kind of household task, cooking, and so forth. If I am alone and not writing I’m probably listening to a podcast. I love to get two things done at once, I feel so efficient. Podcasts are a low entry way for me to do this. I rarely watch television, so that figures into all calculations. I’m pretty cruel about it and if the subject doesn’t interest me I just delete that episode. As a result, I don’t listen to every cast of every pod.

Quote of the Day:
How doth the little Bumbersnoot
Chew gayly on his coal
And sit beneath the petticoats
Through which he burns a hole.
