About Us

PODCASTS! People love them! And those who don’t? Well, they just haven’t been enlightened yet. But how in the heck do you figure out which ones are worth listening to? Castology, that’s how. Each episode our Castologists Liz, Nick and Zane will review some of the best (and sometimes not-so-best) podcasts around. They’ll also do the hard work and trawl the RSS feeds to find the newest podcasts that should be on your radar. Will they always agree with each other’s picks? Probably not! But hey, you’re clever, you know that’s how reviews work.

Twenty Thousand Hertz, Apocalypse Songs, It Was Simple: The Betty Broderick Murders

Have we got some (podcast) news for you! Nick looks at the history of different recognizable sounds with Twenty Thousand Hertz. Zane gets his audio drama on with Apocalypse Sounds. And Liz gets back on the murder train with It Was Simple: The Betty Broderick Murders. Then it’s delicious review time for last week’s recommendations. Liz Recommends - It Was Simple: The Betty Broderick Murders https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2020-05-20/betty-broderick-murders-podcast These were murders that would turn any town on its head, but La Jolla, Calif? That rich jewel by the sea? Thirty years ago, a man and his new wife were murdered in their bed. That’s a long time for a double homicide to stay in the public eye and imagination, but these were no ordinary murders. The killer was the man’s first wife, Betty Broderick. Betty and Dan Broderick had looked like the perfect couple, right up until they weren’t. After four children and nearly 15 years of marriage, after the riches they both worked for were finally within reach, he walked out and began having an affair with his assistant. But divorce ended the Brodericks’ marriage only on paper. “Till death do you part” turned out to be the way it would ultimately end: bitter, savage and fatal. It took two criminal trials to send Betty Broderick to prison, and we’ll hear not only from her divorce attorney, but also from the criminal defense attorney who argued for her in two murder trials, plus the foreman of the jury that convicted her. So many things burned this case into memory: The principals were rich. The jealous killer was, for a change, the woman, not the man. It’s been the subject of TV movies and books. It’s resonated with two generations of Americans -- deserted wives, unhappy husbands. And it’s raised some questions about how divorce laws may contribute to what’s called the feminization of poverty. All of these issues remain critical and controversial in contemporary America today. Thirty years after five bullets, two coffins and one California prison inmate No. W42477, why can’t we look away from Betty Broderick? For both: Serial so start from start. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/it-was-simple-the-betty-broderick-murders/id1513430448 Nick Recommends - Twenty Thousand Hertz The stories behind the world's most recognizable and interesting sounds. From Siri to Dial-up! For both: Take a pick! https://www.20k.org/ Zane Recommends - Apocalypse Songs http://www.redscare.co.nz/ Red Scare Theatre Company presents a five-part audio drama experience. Apocalypse Songs follows a local radio station reporter Amy Louise Chen investigating the tapes of Clara Wilson, an obscure 1960s musician whose cryptic lyrics seem to have predicted the future. Amy joins forces with Clara’s great-nephew Josh to investigate the mystery of Clara’s “Apocalypse Songs”.

I Spied will take a look at the dark underbelly of the intelligence world and give its love-handles a damn good shake. . A DM Podcast www.diamantina.com.au For both: It seems kind of serial-y even though it strictly isn't so start at the start.

Wild Wild Tech, Heist with Michael Caine, Once More With Dragons

If you’re wondering what podcast you should listen to this week (other than this one), wonder no more! Liz gets her criminal on with Heist with Michael Caine, Nick gets pop-culture nerdy with Wild Wild Tech and Zane gets Regular nerdy with the Broadway themed Dungeons and Dragons podcast Once More With Dragons. Then the Castologists weigh in on the pods they recommended last week. Liz Recommends - Heist with Michael Caine https://www.audible.com.au/pd/Heist-with-Michael-Caine-Audiobook/B08BFXNHD9 Sir Michael Caine - perhaps best known as gang leader Charlie Croker in 60s crime caper The Italian Job - tells the stories of remarkable heists and extraordinary robberies from around the world, as remembered by the masterminds, detectives, victims, journalists and witnesses that lived through them. For more than 60 years, Caine has played thieves, criminals, gangsters and the detectives trying to catch them. But there’s Hollywood and then there’s real life... and that’s when things get really interesting. From the largest bank burglary in American history, to the world’s most audacious book heist, Heist with Michael Caine travels to America, Australia, Stockholm, Antwerp and everywhere in-between to tell true stories behind the world’s most daring heists. A Somethin’ Else production for Audible Originals, Heist with Michael Caine was created by Alexis Conran, Russell Finch and David Britland. Produced by Richard Ward and Jessica Beck. Executive produced by Joe Sykes and Russell Finch. This is an Audible Original Podcast. Free for members. You can download all 6 episodes to your Library now. For both: whatever heist takes your fancy but the first one is pretty great. https://www.audible.com.au/pd/Heist-with-Michael-Caine-Audiobook/B08BFXNHD9 Nick Recommends - Wild Wild Tech Great stories of how tech shapes our culture in wild ways. Would you be surprised to find out scientists are using World of Warcraft to learn how to fight COVID-19? What if I told you that I could spoil almost any movie based on who uses an iPhone? Or how about the fact that Disney is afraid of butts? Well, that’s Wild Wild Tech, the podcast that brings you the wildest, most bizarre, most interesting stories about how tech is shaping our culture. Hosted by Jordan Erica Webber and Joshua Rivera, every week on Wild Wild Tech we’ll uncover infamous stories at the intersection of pop culture and tech, learn from the experts, and talk to the people who lived through some truly strange tales. These are the tech stories that are seldom told - but once you hear them, you won’t be able to forget them. These are the stories that are seldom told, but once you hear them, you’ll never forget. For both: Pick an episode https://podcasts.apple.com/nz/podcast/wild-wild-tech/id1519846548 Zane Recommends - Once More With Dragons https://oncemorewithdragons.com Ready your crossbow and lace up your tap shoes: the time has come for "Once More, with Dragons!" It's a musical theatre themed, Dungeons and Dragons real-play adventure featuring a troupe of your favorite musical theatre YouTubers and podcasters. "Once More, with Dragons" is an improvised, fantasy, role-playing story filled with combat, intrigue, mysteries, and musical theatre puns. And don't worry – you don't need to know ANYTHING about Dungeons and Dragons (or musical theatre) to enjoy this story.

The Hilarious World of Depression, No Gangsters in Paradise, The Knowne World Bardcast

Need some more podcasts on your list? Castologists are on it! This week Liz finds the funny in life’s blah with The Hilarious World of Depression, Nick looks at the slimy belly of the Sydney underworld with No Gangsters in Paradise, and Zane gets down to some olde worlde music with The Knowne World Bardcast. As always, after all that, the Castologist review the podcasts they recommended last week. Liz Recommends - The Hilarious World of Depression https://www.hilariousworld.org/about A show about clinical depression...with laughs? Well, yeah. Depression is an incredibly common and isolating disease experienced by millions, yet often stigmatized by society. The Hilarious World of Depression is a series of frank, moving, and, yes, funny conversations with top comedians who have dealt with this disease, hosted by veteran humorist and public radio host John Moe. Join guests such as Maria Bamford, Paul F. Tompkins, Andy Richter, and Jen Kirkman to learn how they’ve dealt with depression and managed to laugh along the way. The Hilarious World of Depression is not medical treatment and should not be seen as a substitute for therapy or medication. But it is a chance to gain some insight, have a few laughs, and realize that people with depression are not alone and that together, we can all feel a bit better For both: any eps that look good. https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/the-hilarious-world-of-depression/id1181589175 Nick Recommends - No Gangsters in Paradise At the turn of the millennium, Western Sydney was a terrifying gangland. At the heart of the frenzy was the Darwiche-Razzak family conflict – a Romeo-and-Juliet style tragedy complicated by honour codes, politics and drive-by shootings. Journalist Mahmood Fazal draws on his own experiences as a gang member to tell the inside story of Sydney’s Lebanese gang wars, to pinpoint why young Muslims just like him commit their lives to violence. Fazal delves into the city’s cultural divide, the special police task force that dealt with the conflict, and what life is really like behind bars. Tough questions emerge from the investigation: Why did these young people re-enact in Australia the experience of a Middle-Eastern war they never knew and which their parents hoped to leave behind? What role did prejudice play in the police’s response to the conflict? And how did Eddie Darwiche get his hands on ten rocket launchers? For both: From the start https://www.audible.com.au/pd/No-Gangsters-in-Paradise-Audiobook/B07Y8NG6LP Zane Recommends - The Knowne World Bardcast https://knowneworldbardcast.com The Knowne World Bardcast is a podcast for the populace of the Knowne World of the Society for Creative Anachronism. Our purpose is to unite bards, minstrels, musicians, storytellers and all other performing artists in the SCA and to provide a digital archive of the songs and stories of Scadian life as well as introducing bards of previous and current generations to the Knowne World at Large. The KWB is not directly affiliated with or endorsed by the Society for Creative Anachronism and is a an independent production of DeepNerd Media. Your host and curator is Lord Gideon ap Stephen of the Barony of Hawkwood, apprentice to Mistress Rosalind Jehanne and Master Dunstan Le Herryngmonger.

We Don’t Deserve Dogs, Max and Ivan: Fugitives, 10 Things That Scare Me

If you want podcasts you’ve come to the right place! We’ve got three recommendations coming at you this week. Zane takes a break from the doom and gloom with We Don’t Deserve Dogs; Nick gets caught up in a comedy thriller podcast Max and Ivan: Fugitives; and Liz looks at what people are most afraid of with the short form podcast 10 Things That Scare Me. Then it’s onto the reviews! Liz Recommends - 10 Things that Scare Me https://www.wnycstudios.org/podcasts/10-things-scare-me WNYC Studios. It’s a tiny podcast about big fears In each episode, one person talks. Alone in a room. It could be anyone. It could be you. It’s someone driven by fears that keep them up at night, that define their lives, and inform their choices. This is a podcast about them, about you, about us, and the world we inhabit together. New episodes every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. For both: Ida and Noa https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/10-things-that-scare-me/id1443856963 Nick Recommends - Max and Ivan: Fugitives https://play.acast.com/s/maxandivanfugitives Two lowly tech developers acquire a laptop full of contraband data, witness a murder, and then narrowly escape being assassinated. Suddenly, they find themselves sucked into a world of state-funded disinformation campaigns, bot farms, all-knowing Big Data organisations, and shadowy terror groups. Inspired by the chaotic way global politics is currently unfolding, Max & Ivan: Fugitives is an on-the-run comedy thriller set across international borders. For both: From the start https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/max-ivan-fugitives/id1487956745 Zane Recommends - We Don't Deserve Dogs https://thepodglomerate.com/dogs Comedian Richie Redding and celebrity veterinarian Dr. Lisa Lippman are unlikely cohosts... and also a loving couple. The result is an extremely informative show that is surprisingly funny. Each episode features high profile guests telling hilarious stories of the pets that shape their lives. They also get real vet advice from Dr. Lisa and get to play stump the doctor with all the silliest animal questions they have. (You'll learn a TON about sex and poop). This is the least narcissistic interview possible! Instead of talking about themselves, guests get to talk about the thing that makes us human: their love for life's furry little family members… and these jumping-off points highlight more of their personalities than we might think.

Liz goes back to her macabre roots with Martinis and Murder, Nick dips into the listener submissions with BiPositive+, and Zane turns to science with the award winning Important, Not Important.

Freshly shaken martinis also help. Spending hours on research per case, John and Daryn not only tell the narrative of each murder but also delve into compelling and little-known facts about the lives of each killer and victim. What was the motivation? Was the killer a psychopath or a sane person who simply snapped? What was the impact on the victim’s family, friends and community?

Liz Recommends - It Was Simple: The Betty Broderick Murders https://www.latimes.com/california/story/2020-05-20/betty-broderick-murders-podcast These were murders that would turn any town on its head, but La Jolla, Calif? That rich jewel by the sea? Thirty years ago, a man and his new wife were murdered in their bed. That’s a long time for a double homicide to stay in the public eye and imagination, but these were no ordinary murders. The killer was the man’s first wife, Betty Broderick. Betty and Dan Broderick had looked like the perfect couple, right up until they weren’t. After four children and nearly 15 years of marriage, after the riches they both worked for were finally within reach, he walked out and began having an affair with his assistant. But divorce ended the Brodericks’ marriage only on paper. “Till death do you part” turned out to be the way it would ultimately end: bitter, savage and fatal. It took two criminal trials to send Betty Broderick to prison, and we’ll hear not only from her divorce attorney, but also from the criminal defense attorney who argued for her in two murder trials, plus the foreman of the jury that convicted her. So many things burned this case into memory: The principals were rich. The jealous killer was, for a change, the woman, not the man. It’s been the subject of TV movies and books. It’s resonated with two generations of Americans -- deserted wives, unhappy husbands. And it’s raised some questions about how divorce laws may contribute to what’s called the feminization of poverty. All of these issues remain critical and controversial in contemporary America today. Thirty years after five bullets, two coffins and one California prison inmate No. W42477, why can’t we look away from Betty Broderick? For both: Serial so start from start. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/it-was-simple-the-betty-broderick-murders/id1513430448 Nick Recommends - Twenty Thousand Hertz The stories behind the world's most recognizable and interesting sounds.

Liz gets her criminal on with Heist with Michael Caine, Nick gets pop-culture nerdy with Wild Wild Tech and Zane gets Regular nerdy with the Broadway themed Dungeons and Dragons podcast Once More With Dragons. Then the Castologists weigh in on the pods they recommended last week. Liz Recommends - Heist with Michael Caine https://www.audible.com.au/pd/Heist-with-Michael-Caine-Audiobook/B08BFXNHD9 Sir Michael Caine - perhaps best known as gang leader Charlie Croker in 60s crime caper The Italian Job - tells the stories of remarkable heists and extraordinary robberies from around the world, as remembered by the masterminds, detectives, victims, journalists and witnesses that lived through them. For more than 60 years, Caine has played thieves, criminals, gangsters and the detectives trying to catch them. But there’s Hollywood and then there’s real life... and that’s when things get really interesting. From the largest bank burglary in American history, to the world’s most audacious book heist, Heist with Michael Caine travels to America, Australia, Stockholm, Antwerp and everywhere in-between to tell true stories behind the world’s most daring heists. A Somethin’ Else production for Audible Originals, Heist with Michael Caine was created by Alexis Conran, Russell Finch and David Britland. Produced by Richard Ward and Jessica Beck. Executive produced by Joe Sykes and Russell Finch. This is an Audible Original Podcast. Free for members. You can download all 6 episodes to your Library now. For both: whatever heist takes your fancy but the first one is pretty great. https://www.audible.com.au/pd/Heist-with-Michael-Caine-Audiobook/B08BFXNHD9 Nick Recommends - Wild Wild Tech Great stories of how tech shapes our culture in wild ways. Would you be surprised to find out scientists are using World of Warcraft to learn how to fight COVID-19? What if I told you that I could spoil almost any movie based on who uses an iPhone? Or how about the fact that Disney is afraid of butts? Well, that’s Wild Wild Tech, the podcast that brings you the wildest, most bizarre, most interesting stories about how tech is shaping our culture. Hosted by Jordan Erica Webber and Joshua Rivera, every week on Wild Wild Tech we’ll uncover infamous stories at the intersection of pop culture and tech, learn from the experts, and talk to the people who lived through some truly strange tales. These are the tech stories that are seldom told - but once you hear them, you won’t be able to forget them. These are the stories that are seldom told, but once you hear them, you’ll never forget.

The Hilarious World of Depression, No Gangsters in Paradise, The Knowne World Bardcast

Need some more podcasts on your list? Castologists are on it! This week Liz finds the funny in life’s blah with The Hilarious World of Depression, Nick looks at the slimy belly of the Sydney underworld with No Gangsters in Paradise, and Zane gets down to some olde worlde music with The Knowne World Bardcast. As always, after all that, the Castologist review the podcasts they recommended last week. Liz Recommends - The Hilarious World of Depression https://www.hilariousworld.org/about A show about clinical depression...with laughs? Well, yeah. Depression is an incredibly common and isolating disease experienced by millions, yet often stigmatized by society. The Hilarious World of Depression is a series of frank, moving, and, yes, funny conversations with top comedians who have dealt with this disease, hosted by veteran humorist and public radio host John Moe. Join guests such as Maria Bamford, Paul F. Tompkins, Andy Richter, and Jen Kirkman to learn how they’ve dealt with depression and managed to laugh along the way. The Hilarious World of Depression is not medical treatment and should not be seen as a substitute for therapy or medication. But it is a chance to gain some insight, have a few laughs, and realize that people with depression are not alone and that together, we can all feel a bit better For both: any eps that look good. https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/the-hilarious-world-of-depression/id1181589175 Nick Recommends - No Gangsters in Paradise At the turn of the millennium, Western Sydney was a terrifying gangland. At the heart of the frenzy was the Darwiche-Razzak family conflict – a Romeo-and-Juliet style tragedy complicated by honour codes, politics and drive-by shootings. Journalist Mahmood Fazal draws on his own experiences as a gang member to tell the inside story of Sydney’s Lebanese gang wars, to pinpoint why young Muslims just like him commit their lives to violence. Fazal delves into the city’s cultural divide, the special police task force that dealt with the conflict, and what life is really like behind bars. Tough questions emerge from the investigation: Why did these young people re-enact in Australia the experience of a Middle-Eastern war they never knew and which their parents hoped to leave behind? What role did prejudice play in the police’s response to the conflict? And how did Eddie Darwiche get his hands on ten rocket launchers? For both: From the start https://www.audible.com.au/pd/No-Gangsters-in-Paradise-Audiobook/B07Y8NG6LP Zane Recommends - The Knowne World Bardcast https://knowneworldbardcast.com The Knowne World Bardcast is a podcast for the populace of the Knowne World of the Society for Creative Anachronism. Our purpose is to unite bards, minstrels, musicians, storytellers and all other performing artists in the SCA and to provide a digital archive of the songs and stories of Scadian life as well as introducing bards of previous and current generations to the Knowne World at Large. The KWB is not directly affiliated with or endorsed by the Society for Creative Anachronism and is a an independent production of DeepNerd Media.

Zane takes a break from the doom and gloom with We Don’t Deserve Dogs; Nick gets caught up in a comedy thriller podcast Max and Ivan: Fugitives; and Liz looks at what people are most afraid of with the short form podcast 10 Things That Scare Me. Then it’s onto the reviews! Liz Recommends - 10 Things that Scare Me https://www.wnycstudios.org/podcasts/10-things-scare-me WNYC Studios. It’s a tiny podcast about big fears In each episode, one person talks. Alone in a room. It could be anyone. It could be you. It’s someone driven by fears that keep them up at night, that define their lives, and inform their choices. This is a podcast about them, about you, about us, and the world we inhabit together. New episodes every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. For both: Ida and Noa https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/10-things-that-scare-me/id1443856963 Nick Recommends - Max and Ivan: Fugitives https://play.acast.com/s/maxandivanfugitives Two lowly tech developers acquire a laptop full of contraband data, witness a murder, and then narrowly escape being assassinated. Suddenly, they find themselves sucked into a world of state-funded disinformation campaigns, bot farms, all-knowing Big Data organisations, and shadowy terror groups. Inspired by the chaotic way global politics is currently unfolding, Max & Ivan: Fugitives is an on-the-run comedy thriller set across international borders. For both: From the start https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/max-ivan-fugitives/id1487956745 Zane Recommends - We Don't Deserve Dogs https://thepodglomerate.com/dogs Comedian Richie Redding and celebrity veterinarian Dr. Lisa Lippman are unlikely cohosts... and also a loving couple. The result is an extremely informative show that is surprisingly funny. Each episode features high profile guests telling hilarious stories of the pets that shape their lives. They also get real vet advice from Dr. Lisa and get to play stump the doctor with all the silliest animal questions they have. (You'll learn a TON about sex and poop). This is the least narcissistic interview possible! Instead of talking about themselves, guests get to talk about the thing that makes us human: their love for life's furry little family members… and these jumping-off points highlight more of their personalities than we might think.

We've got podcasts right, freshly chilled, right out of the fridge for you this week. Liz goes back to her macabre roots with Martinis and Murder, Nick dips into the listener submissions with BiPositive+, and Zane turns to science with the award winning Important, Not Important. Then we review last week's offerings. Liz Recommends - Martinis and Murder https://www.oxygen.com/martinis-murder-true-crime-podcast From serial killers to mysterious disappearances to infamous murder cases, John and Daryn break down one murder over the course of one or two episodes, making heavy subject matter a little more palatable by not checking their senses of humor at the door. Freshly shaken martinis also help. Spending hours on research per case, John and Daryn not only tell the narrative of each murder but also delve into compelling and little-known facts about the lives of each killer and victim. What was the motivation? Was the killer a psychopath or a sane person who simply snapped? What was the impact on the victim’s family, friends and community?
