This Podcast Will Kill You, The Empire Files and You Must Remember This

Well, well, well, look who it is... it's your friendly neighbourhood Castologists here to recommend podcasts to you for your listening pleasure! Liz's enthusiasm for this disease podcast is infections with This Podcast Will Kill You, Patrick peeks behind the curtain of the US with The Empire Files, and Zane gets nostalgic for Hollywood's Golden Era with You Must Remember This. Then come the reviews of last week's offerings.

Liz Recommends - This Podcast Will Kill You

"Grad students studying disease ecology, Erin and Erin found themselves disenchanted with the insular world of academia. They wanted a way to share their love of epidemics and weird medical mysteries with the world, not just colleagues. Plus, who doesn't love an excuse to have a cocktail while chatting about pus and poop?" And thus This Podcast Will Kill You was born. Each episode looks at a first person account of a disease, then they look at its history and potential future if things progress as on their current track.

This is a new one for the Exactly Right network aka the podcast network owned by the MFM gals Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark.

For both: Any disease that takes your fancy but I liked Encephalitis Lethargica.

Pat Recommends - The Empire Files

Yes, it's as terrifying as it sounds. Perhaps not in the way you imagine though. This is the podcast version of a documentary and interview series hosted by Abby Martin. She and her team delve into issues, both domestic and international, surrounding the world's biggest empire. If you'd like to know more about war profiteering, regime changing, and the incestuous relationship between politicians and the press, this'll be the podcast for you. Bare in mind that this is rather editorialised, Abby certainly wears her heart on her sleeve, but that's why we love her.

For Zane & Liz: You're loose units, you'll figure it out.

Zane Recommends - You must Remember This

You Must Remember This is the podcast dedicated to exploring the secret and/or forgotten histories of Hollywood's first century. The podcast was created and is written, produced and narrated by Karina Longworth. This podcast is a heavily-researched work of creative nonfiction. Every reasonable attempt is made at accuracy, but quite often when it comes to the kinds of stories they explore, between conflicting reports, conscious and unconscious mythologizing and institutionalized spin, the truth is murky at best. That’s kind of what the podcast is, ultimately, about.

For Pat: Any that catches your eye

For Liz: Any that catches your eye
