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

Directive, Several Stories High, Just The Zoo Of Us/Amazing Wildlife

What's up listeners? This week it's all about YOU (well, if you submitted a podcast). It's listener submission week! Nick and Liz have gone a similar yet different route, both picking storytelling podcasts. Nick recommends the sci-fi fiction serial Directive, and Liz recommends the anthological podcast devoted to telling all the tales Several Stories High. Then, Zane gets his David Attenborough on with not one but TWO animal podcasts: Just The Zoo Of Us and Amazing Wildlife. Then it's reviews time.

Liz Recommends - Several Stories High

https://www.severalstorieshigh.com/podcast

"Several Stories High is a podcast and much more—an idea. This concept of stories. Little slices of magic on display for all who should notice such things. Whether it’s a true tale, fiction, or somewhere in between…it’s all magic.

But stories come in many forms, no? Some you read. Others you hear—be they from a tangible teller of tales, present and in the flesh, or via the airwaves. And some stories take the form of song. Of moving musical melodies that conjure emotional responses from the deepest parts of us. Maybe they’ll make us feel like laughing, or crying, or contemplating—but the only thing that matters is that we feel something.

Yes. Everybody loves a good story—whether you hear it, read it, or sing it … just as long as you feel it. And Several Stories High creator Nathaniel David Knox has a few of his own to tell.

And for those who prefer to read stories rather than listen to them, he even has some written stories up on his website. But you're here, so you probs just want that sweet podcasty goodness. That's cool too, no judgment here!

For both: Pick a story that takes your fancy

Zane Recommends -Just the Zoo of Us & Amazing Wildlife (Two Podcasts)

Two lisener submissions! We had two animal-centric podcasts submit to us one-day apart, and so, not to unfairly pick one over the other, Zane is bringing both to the table this week!

Just the Zoo of Us (https://www.justthezooofus.com/) is an animal review podcast by Christian and Ellen Weatherford of Jacksonville, Florida. Every week, each host selects one animal species submitted by a listener to research, review, and rate out of ten in the categories of effectiveness, ingenuity and aesthetics. This podcast is made with families in mind and contains no profanity or graphic language. This podcast is released weekly and usually runs just under an hour.

Amazing Wildlife is an educational series highlighting the wonders of the animal kingdom. Featuring fun and insightful facts about the world's most fantastic animals (a few species an episode). Released approximately once every fortnight the episodes run just under 20 minutes.

For Both: Pick your favourite!
