Top 5 Podcasts of 2016

In no particular order:

  1. Song Exploder
    Hrishikesh Hirway’s Song Exploder is a wonderful look into the process of making music. I love hearing musicians tell the story of how they pieced together a song. The Commander Thinks Aloud by The Long Winters is hands down my favorite episode. Chances are you’ll find an artist you know as a starting point and then continue exploring from there.
  2. Cortex
    Youtuber CGP Grey and podcaster Myke Hurley talk about doing the right work as a self-employed creators, their individual quirks, and living a multi-iPad lifestyle.
  3. Top Scallops
    Three friends made a show about season 13 of Top Chef and hilarity ensued. I devoured this podcast without ever watching an episode of Top Chef.
  4. Due by Friday
    After Top Scallops ended, the same three friends started a show where they challenge each other to do something each week.
  5. The Journal The Journal podcast comes out roughly once a month and features Kevin Rose interviewing an expert in a field he’s interested in learning about.
