What's playing in the workshop?

I have a long history of listening to audiobooks. What started has a habit during my morning commute has followed me into the workshop. Recently that habit has transitioned into listening to podcasts while I work. I'll be honest, I'm really not a big fan of the listening-to-two-strangers-yammer-on (get to the point already) format you often hear, but the revived tradition of radio drama is really appealing to me. So I've compiled a list of some of my favorites for you to check out.


The Black Tapes

Spooky! If the hosts of NPR were to join the X Files. The first podcast I really got into. Join Alex Regan has she she explores the paranomal and tries to unravel the mysteries of the Black Tapes.



" Because sometimes the truth is more frightening than fiction. "

Author Aaron Mahnke explores to dark sides of our history. Ghouls in Irish graveyards, globe trotting serial killers, the monsters inside us all. It's all here and all true.



A new podcast about what happens to our social media presence after we die. A really outstanding cast of actors and a great plot had me finding busy work around the workshop just so I could stay and listen to another episode.

Not an audio drama but one of my favorites. Alex and PJ are like the Lewis and Clark of the internet. They explore the weird and mysterious while producing a show that is a lot of fun to listen to.

Maker's Broadcast

The newest podcast on the list. At the time of writing there are only two episodes released. Each episode features a visit to the workshop of a maker in England. There is no narration, music, or ads. Just one person talking about their work and why they do what they do.
