Who are we?
We are avid podcast listeners and many of us are podcasters ourselves.
We are passionate about podcasting and want to let the creators we admire know that we appreciate what they do.
We are also a community of people that like to share. Share podcasts recommendations, share podcasting tips, share our audio and personal lives.
We are here for each other in a way that is reflective on the personal medium we share: podcasting.
What our community says about #podrevday:
I've been seeing the reviews for Jar of Rebuke posted month after month during podrevday. I've been curious but so resistant to audio drama. Yes, I love Girl in Space. But that's 1 in the genre that I liked. Not a high number to say I liked audio fiction. But last month Seen and Not Heard penetrated my earbuds and emotional world. I realized that my ambivalence towards audio fiction needed some investigation.
So I loaded up a few episodes of Jar of Rebuke. With my mind open, I pressed play. I think two minutes in to hearing Casper's voice, I stopped what I was doing and headed for the couch. I did something unprecedented: I listened to a podcast withOUT doing anything else.
Living outside our passport/home countries can be challenging at times but it can also be really rewarding. Founder of PodRevDay, Steph, wanted to share a list of 8 of her favorite expat podcast episodes with you so you can come along for the ride. In the video she talks about The Bangkok Podcast but the listening list below includes a total of 8 episodes from different expat podcasts globally.
18: Surprising Mental Health Podcast Recommendations to help you slow down with JD from Health Talks with JD
Mental Health is a topic that has been on many of our minds these days. The pandemic has put extra strain on our lives that many of us, myself included, were just not prepared to deal with. So when JD said that his theme for this podcast recommendation was mental health I was quietly and deeply happy.
But these are not your typical mental health podcasts. JD calls them "sneaky" episodes because they are not all from podcasts that you'd think of as being in the category of mental health.
Do you listen to podcasts while showing? I know that’s a bit of a personal question but my recent podcast geekery conversation with Amma Marfo brought this question to front and center. Personally, I’ve never been able to figure out how to do it. The volume is always too low for me. But Amma figured it out and shares this tip with us freely.
But this is just the tip of the recommendation iceberg. She shares many of her favorite podcasts with us. And let me tell you, they are funny, thoughtful and make the world a better place. Curious? Have a listen. You’ll be glad you did.
He stops his friends from putting ketchup on hot dogs, is an avid bicycler (can you see the bike art in the episode art?)and listens to a lot of dating podcasts. What's not to love about Dion McGill, Host of Off the Beaten Podcast?
In this quick chat Dion shares his love of real people making great podcasting content. He went old school with Vinyl Cafe, geeked out with Nerd Cage Live, and commiserated with Erin of You're Such a Catch about the awfulness of dating. And wow, is this just the beginning.
Like many of our guests, Dion is a power listener. So much so that he keeps a podcast notebook where he jots down the podcasts that he wants to listen to and where he heard about them. That's dedication.
