Podcasts are awesome (especially From First to Last) and each week sees brand new, fantastic shows appearing, demanding to be fed into your ears. How do you decide what to listen to and what to ignore? Not to worry, Audiences Everywhere has you covered. Each week we’ll give our picks for the best podcasts you should be listening to about movies (and other things) so you don’t have to make any more hard podcast decisions ever again.
Movie Podcast of the Week
A monster movie podcast with a difference, CadaverCast is hosted by father and son duo, Jef and Alistair. Family podcasts aren’t a new thing in the podcast realm (we’ve included a few involving siblings on these pages already), but the difference with CadaverCast is that Alistair is only five years old and only four when the podcast began.
The podcast covers a wide range of monster movies going back to the ‘30s with O.G monsters like Dracula and Frankenstein while also hitting some B-Movie classics like Attack of the Killer Tomatoes, Empire of the Ants, and The Blob.
Al and Jef are great hosts as Jef doesn’t talk down to his young son and Al is full of great explanations for why a movie is scary, funny, dumb, or brilliant. The joy of this podcast is listening to Al’s meandering monologues about these different movies and his immense pride in himself that he doesn’t get scared while other kids and some adults do.
Where to Begin: Begin with the Dracula episode as it is the first and it gives Jef a chance to explain his philosophy for the podcast and introduce you to Al, the bravest four-year-old ever.
Non-Movie Podcast of the Week
We have featured some fiction podcasts on these site before, but other than the Beef and Dairy Network, we haven’t showcased much comedy. Wooden Overcoats differs from a lot of other fiction podcasts in that it is not produced to seem like a radio show or podcast. Instead it feels like a very good radio play.
The story of Wooden Overcoats is about Rudyard Funn, the only funeral director on the island of Piffling, a place populated by odd, odd characters including an insane mayor, easily impressed reporter, and an agnostic priest. One day another funeral director comes to the island and sets up shop across the road from Funn and a rivalry is born.
Wooden Overcoats is great for fans of British comedy shows like Blackadder, The League of Gentlemen, Little Britain, Father Ted, Black Books, and Fawlty Towers as Funn tries his best to overcome his enemy while being surrounded by fools and being a bit of a fool himself.
Where to Begin: Episode one.
