Podcasts I Added This Month

ORBITAL PATH - space

MASTERPIECE STUDIO - Downton Abbey, Sherlock

SHE DOES - Extremely well produced on Women at Work

Podcasts that Got the Axe this Month

THE AXE FILES WITH DAVID AXELROD - I just couldn't get into it, and I'm I'm a political junkie

YOU MUST REMEMBER THIS - a fun early Hollywood history podcast, but I moved on.

INC. UNCENSORED - Whenever I racked & stacked the day's playlist, INC sank to the bottom. Couldn't compete.

Podcasts Headed for the Chopping Block

RATIONAL SECURITY - greatest podcast nobody hears. Abysmal production standards.

WHAT HURTS - What's the point?

THE TIM FERRISS SHOW - I love Tim Ferriss, generally, but he needs an editor. 2 hours is too long for any podcast.

WAKING UP WITH SAM HARRIS - Samething for Sam. Sam Harris needs an editor's intervention.

UNDER THE RADAR - While I like this pod, I'm not going to listen to any podcast, particualrly a two-hour podcast, on "faith." Every morning I rack & stack my playlist by reading the description of the podcasts that came in with each one overnight. If UTR can't be bothered to flesh out a description of the show, I can't be bothered to find out.

THE MICHAEL ERIC DYSON PODCAST - As far as I can tell, he tried once and quite. Had abysmal production standards, which I wrote to him about, with suggestions.
