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


Dying for Sex, Tides of History, The Last Voyage of the Pong Su

This week we set a challenge for each Castologist to recommend a podcast they think one of the OTHER Castologists would normally recommend! Still with us? SO: Zane brought a podcast on sex, feminism and mortality for Liz: Dying for Sex. Then, Nick recommended a historical journey for Zane with Tides of History. Then Liz did her darndest to impress Nick with a podcast containing all his favourite things including boats, shipping containers, spies and intrigue with The Last Voyage of the Pong Su. Then, it's time for the reviews of last week's podcast.

Liz Recommends - The Last Voyage of the Pong Su

A North Korean dictator, bags of heroin, drug lords, spooks, sailors, Australian cops and a web of lies: Come aboard The Last Voyage of The Pong Su.

Featuring conversations recorded by listening devices, and translated. Interviews. Reported by Richard Baker (The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald) and produced by Rachael Dexter, The Last Voyage of The Pong Su tells the story of an ill-fated 2003 drug trafficking operation involving a North Korean cargo ship, its crew and members of an Asian crime syndicate targeting Australia with a then-record amount of heroin (estimated street value of A$160 million.)

The podcast also won the Melbourne Press Club's Quill award for podcasting.


For Nick: Start from the start, it's a serial.

Nick Recommends - Tides of History

Zane LOVES history so Nick chose HISTORY to curry favour with the podfather. Those echoes define the boundaries of states and countries, how we pray and how we fight. They determine what money we spend and and how we earn it at work, what language we speak and how we raise our children. From Wondery, host Patrick Wyman, PhD (“Fall Of Rome”) helps us understand our world and how it got to be the way it is.

For Zane: Any and all!

Zane Recommends - Dying for Sex

What could be MORE Liz? Wondery + Sex + Mortality + Feminism? Zane brought in THE MOST Liz podcast they could find: Dying for Sex. When host Nikki Boyer’s best friend Molly is diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer, she decides to do something bold. She leaves an unhappy marriage and embarks on a series of sexual adventures to feel alive.

For Both: Start at the beginning
