Another of my favorite weekly podcasts is the interesting and informative 99% Invisible. Host Roman Mars zeros in on “all the thought that goes into the things we don’t think about — the unnoticed architecture and design that shape our world.”
Every episode is totally engrossing and I never miss it.
one of my all-time favorite podcasts, the hilarious “Comedy Bang! Bang!,” has just celebrated its ten year anniversary. hosted by expert improviser and comedian Scott Aukerman, this two part…TEN HOUR episode is a great window into the lunacy of this crazy podcast. Check out Scott’s crazy cast of characters, he interviews about 40 of them in these these episodes. guests include Jason Mantzoukas, Andy Daly, Paul F. Tompkins, Seth Morris, Jon Hamm, Paul Scheer, Thomas Lennon, Adam Scott, Nick Kroll, Weird Al, Paul Rust, Haratio Sanz and TONS more!
if you’re further interested, there is a great Forbes interview with Scott Aukerman regarding the anniversary episodes and podcasting in general. really funny and interesting!

R.E.M. is a band that I have loved since I was a kid and still find their music in heavy rotation while at my workbench. So I love this hilarious R.E.M retrospective podcast hosted by Comedy Bang Bang’s Scott Aukerman and actor Adam Scott (Step Brothers, The Good Place, Parks and Recreation, Big Little Lies…etc.) Together they’ve gone through R.E.M’s extensive discography with many, many, many hysterical side-stories peppered in. They also have a great roster of funny guest…today’s was R.E.M. bassist Mike Mills.
If you’re a fan, they also host a U2 podcast that is a must-listen, as well.
I’ve listened to every episode at least once…highly recommended!

If your are a fan of all things science…this is the podcast for you.
New York’s WNYC public radio hosts Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich never disappoint with this fantastically interesting podcast/live show. I have religiously listened to every episode for (I cannot remember how many) years. Every single one is a diamond…perfect.
I will not recommend an episode, they are all super-informative and super-engrossing. Take a deep-dive into their extensive archive and you will surely want to subscribe to their weekly feed.

If you’re unfamiliar with KEXP it’s the super-cool Seattle Public radio station that specializes in current/retro indie and alternative music. They’ve got a deep roster of old-school-style Disc Jockeys (I picture a WKRP in Cincinnati-like cast…google-worthy) that actually program the station and choose the music that they play…a welcome revelation! Each have their individual tastes and personalities, so I recommend getting to know them all.
I mainly stream the live feed during the during the day, but they have an extensive arsenal of great podcasts, shows of various genres and archived in-studio performances, as well.

If you’re a podcast listener and of a certain age, like me, I recommend this hilarious Friday the 13th schlock-movie franchise retrospective. The hosts are podcast pros Matt Gourley and Paul Rust (a fellow Iowan) who are comedy-improv artists and experts(?) on the Friday the 13th movie series. This is just funny and a welcome diversion when you need a little comic break from real, well, daily horror…
You may know Paul Rust as a producer, writer, and central character on the Netflix show Love, and a bunch of other great stuff. And Matt Gourley is a member of the SuperEgo improv cast of characters and another thousand things including podcasts, TV and on and on and on. Google them yourself, I’ve got jewelry to make. If you’re a fan of comedy podcasts you know these guys.

I’m currently (I mean…come on!) listening to Minnesota public radio’s “The Current” when I need some early morning wake-up tunes. They always offer up an eclectic mix of classic indie/alternative favorites and some forgotten, by me, deep-dives into bands I love.
I am hooked on the Saturday morning show “Teenage Kicks” which focuses in on the era from 70’s punk to 90’s grunge. Plenty of 80’s alternative…my guilty-pleasure decade genre favorite. Example…in the last half hour I’ve heard Nico Case, Pixies, Weezer, and Husker Du.
They’ve got a great app to check out, as well.
We’ve just added a “New Events” page to the circlesmith site. Check it out to see when we’ll be at the Sioux City Farmers market, when we’ll be having trunk shows, when we’ll be attending art shows, or when and where else circlesmith jewelry might pop up.
Finally some blue sky! That cold winter grey was getting to be a little much. Looking forward to some Spring and Summer events…I’ll keep you posted.
