One of the big changes that the Internet has created is this now anyone can have their own talk radio show. I’ve been following some podcasts lately, and I thought I’d share exactly which ones I’m excited about.
I’ve been following pulp author Barry Reese’s podcast The Shadow Fan’s Podcast ever since the first episode, and it’s only been getting better and better. This podcast covers everything you would want to know about the classic pulp character The Shadow in all of the different incarnations, including book, radio, film, and comics. Barry is a guy who is truly a fan, and it shows through in his podcasting. If you are at all interested in The Shadow and his impact on classic pulp and new pulp, then this is a podcast you should be listening to. A new episode is released each week.

Following on with the pulp theme, there’s also Pulped! The New Pulp Podcast. This podcast is put together by Tommy Hancock and his friends, and they talk with people who are making a splash in the new pulp arena. Although the podcast comes out irregularly, there’s a lot of great content, and a lot of past episodes to go through. Check out the podcast on iTunes here:
A fairly new podcast that I’ve just started following is The Regular Joes Podcast. This podcast deals with movies, toys, science fiction, TV shows, comics, and collecting. The three hosts, Dave Pisani, Barry Kay and Tod Pleasant, have been active in the G.I. Joe fan community for years. In fact, I remember first encountering Dave Pisani and Tod Pleasant when they were doing their Aesop photostory in the Lee’s Toy Review Magazine. The work that they put into creating the sets and photographing the characters was absolutely inspirational, and these three gentlemen bring that same work ethic and passion for the subject matter to the podcast. New episodes are released every week and run approximately an hour each. This podcast is one that I would very highly recommend. Check out the podcast on iTunes here:
This next podcast is a little bit different from the previous three podcasts. Producing Unscripted with Joke and Biagio is an insider’s look at producing reality TV shows. Now, I find it interesting to have this behind the scenes look at the television production process, even though I very rarely watch reality television shows with the exception of the Food Network and History Television. The hosts have great sense of fun around production fun, and they do it in 15 min. bites that make it easy for someone like me to digest. Check out the podcast on iTunes here:
I’m going to be adding more and more podcasts as I discovered new podcast series. Podcasts are a great way to learn new things while working on other projects, such as hobbies, coding, and so forth. If there any podcasts that you enjoy and think should be added to this list, then by all means list them in the comments below.
