PODCASTS! People love them! And those who don’t? Well, they just haven’t been enlightened yet. But how in the heck do you figure out which ones are worth listening to? Castology, that’s how. Each episode our Castologists Liz, Patrick and Zane will review some of the best (and sometimes not-so-best) … read more


The Adventure Zone, Chompers, Happy Face

It's that time of the year where it's the holidays, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and a bit like Festivus for the rest of us. So your friendly Castologists decided on a family theme. (Collective aw). Zane heads into the Dungeons and Dragons universe with a familial twist with The Adventure Zone, New Patrick/Nick embraces his inner child with Chompers and Liz manages to find murder in the most unlikely of themes with Happy Face. Then it's on to the reviews from last week. What did Liz and Zane think of New Patrick/Nick's very first recommendation?

Liz Recommends - Happy Face

Who could have predicted Liz would have interpreted the Family theme to include murrrrrrrrder? (Pretty much everyone). But still, this IHeartRadio show is a doozy. Think the words of the actual killer in his police interviews, interspersed with interviews with his daughter about the red flags the family missed as their patriarch was becoming a notorious serial killer.

"For Melissa Moore, 1995 was a nightmare. That’s the year the teenager learned her father, Keith Hunter Jesperson, was a serial killer. It’s also the year Melissa Moore’s doubt spiral began: When you look like your father, and you share his intelligence and charisma, how do you know you’re not a psychopath, too? Happy Face is the story of Keith Hunter Jesperson, his brutal crimes, and the cat and mouse game he played with detectives and the media. But it’s also the story of the horrific legacy he gifted his children. Join Melissa Moore as she investigates her father’s crimes, reckons with the past, and wades through her darkest fears as she hunts for a better future.

"Melissa Moore is an Emmy-nominated Crime Correspondent for the Dr. Oz Show, Executive Producer and host of LMN's "Monster In My Family.” Melissa is a recognized expert on the topics of recovery from trauma, domestic violence and serial violent crimes. Moore was raised Melissa Jesperson, daughter of the infamous “Happy Face” serial killer, Keith Jesperson. Growing up in a small town in Washington state, she survived the escalating trauma from her home life and the man she called her father. Today, she frequently shares her insight and background with survivors seeking healing from violent crimes and abuse through her work and bestselling book, WHOLE: A Guide to Self-Repair (2016 Rodale)."

For both: Serial-style podcast so start from the start.

Nick Recommends - Chompers

Make tooth time easy with this morning and night tooth brushing show for kids and ADULTS TOO.

Kids AND ADULTS TOO will hear jokes, riddles, stories, fun facts, silly songs and more, that’ll keep them giggling - and brushing - for the full two minutes that dentists recommend.

Chompers will have kids AND ADULTS TOO reminding parents that it's time to brush, not the other way around!

For both: Any of em'!

Zane Recommends - The Adventure Zone

So, what exactly IS a "family" podcast? How about a podcast where three brothers and their dad get together play a game? And what if those brothers were part of the podcast royal family? Justin, Travis and Griffin McElroy from My Brother, My Brother and Me, Sawbones, Schmanners, Wonderful! Trends Like These, The Empty Bowl, Run. A Doctor Who Fancast, Still Buffering, Positiviteeny, and From Death Till us Blart, have recruited their dad Clint for a campaign of high adventure. My favourite season is Season 1...
