It’s early Feb 2021, here are some podcast episodes I’ve enjoyed recently.
The Gauntlet Podcast Production
Great technical episode on how to manage podcast recordings including the environment, double-ended recordings, managing the mic, baffles, multiple takes, and Audacity tricks for noise reduction, compression, etc.

The Loremen: Hang me low, the Mary Blandy story
A podcast about “local legends and obscure curiosities from days of yore” where the hosts and guests interrogate local British ghost myths and other legends. Really nice style and good subject matter plus legitimate complaints about Christopher Nolan. Found by chance after seeing tweets and following Alasdair Beckett-King (now following James Shakeshaft as well).
S3 Ep 56: the Mary Blandy story
Breakfast in the Ruins: Moorcockian Music
My love for Moorcock is intrinsically linked to the associated music of the time including Hawkwind, New World’s Fair, etc. Great listen for modern Moorcock-inspired artists.
BitR Moorcockian Music (plus see the first and second addenda)
Fear of a Black Dragon: The Bruja, the Beast and the Barrow
Long time fan of FoaBD, this just happens to be the latest. Always liked the pace and format of this show, including the chain lightning round, companion adventures, etc. Very interested in this particular scenario as well, although they didn’t link it in the show notes, so I will here.

The Allusionist: Sorry
Brilliant podcast about language. This latest episode is all about apologies: the four things that make an apology and apology, fauxpologies, the difference between interpersonal and corporate apology, etc.
