My Favorite Podshows

Lately I’ve been on a Podshow listening kick, and I wanted to share some of my favorites. They run a gamut between writing, Irish, Icelandic, and History.

Many of these podcasts have member-only content that you can obtain by becoming a patron. Definitely worth it! Support your podcasts! Also, leaving reviews REALLY help them.

What are you favorites? Let me know! I’m always willing to listen to more!

These are in alphabetical order, since I can’t choose favorites!

The Allusionist – A lovely podcast about the love of the oddities of language

Bitesize Irish Gaelic – Interested in the Irish language? Bitesize is a fantastic resource, and their podcast gives glimmers behind learning the language and the culture

Blúiríní Béaloidis Folklore Podcast – Delve into the folklore of the Irish

Celtic Myth Podshow – dramatizations of the Celtic myths, including Irish, Welsh, and news from the pagan world. Gary and Ruth are a delightful pair!

Celtic Tomes – also by Gary and Ruth of Celtic Myth Podshow, Gary reads traditional texts about Celtic myths

Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History – not for the faint of heart. Dan goes on historical rants and delves deep into the gritty parts of history

Druidcast – all things Druid, hosted by the talented and fantastic Damh the Bard!  Check out episode 131 for me reading a segment from Misfortune of Vision!

 

Irish Fireside – Traveling to Ireland, either in real life or vicariously? Corey and Liam are a wonderful resource, full of fantastic information.

Irish History Podcast – Specializing in the Famine years, Finn Dwyer gives intense glimpses into Ireland’s past.

Rex Factor – Grading each of the British Monarchs on scales including battliness, scandal, and legacy.

Ridiculous History – for the bizarre bits in history

Saga Thing – Grading each of the Icelandic sagas

Sawbones – the history of all we’ve done wrong in medicine throughout history. Hilarious!

Sidedoor – The Smithsonian’s Podcast

Story Archaeology – A fantastic and intriguing duo of women who analyze the Irish myths, their relation to culture and language, and their relation to other myths

Stuff You Should Know – General but interesting. They ramble a bit more than most, but it’s fun. The SYSK network has a bevy of other interesting podcasts to delve into

The History of English Podcast – An incredibly detailed podcast about the origins of the English language, which definitely appeals to my inner etymologist! 3 years in and we’re not even into the 13th century yet!

The Once and Future Podcast – Great writing podcast with interviews with authors, actors, and other folks in the biz.

Viking Age Podcast – While his halting delivery is distracting at first, this has a lot of great information.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Celtic Fairies, Fables, and Folklore! Bestselling author (top #100 Amazon Canada, #1 in Paranormal Fantasy, Amazon Canada) Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon, is an author, artist and accountant. After she failed to become an airline pilot, she quit her ceaseless pursuit of careers that begin with 'A', and decided to concentrate on her writing. Since she has Project Completion Disorder, she is one of the few authors with NO unfinished novels. Christy has her hands in many crafts, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing, and photography. In real life, she's a CPA, but having grown up with art all around her (her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected her, as it were. She wants to expose the incredible beauty in this world, hidden beneath the everyday grime of familiarity and habit, and share it with others. She uses characters out of time and places infused with magic and myth. Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. She does local art and craft shows, as well as sending her art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad.

    If you’re centered on history, there’s always What You Missed in History Class, The Memory Palace, Revisionist History, The Allusionist (more history of language centered, but short episodes, funny, and thoughtful), Sidedoor is the Smithsonian’s podcast, You Must Remember This (centered on history of entertainment industry in different ways, Sawbones is hosted by a husband and wife (she’s the doctor) about the history of insane things humans have done in the name of medicine, More Perfect is produced by the same people who make Radiolab (also amazing, seminal podcasting), and it’s centered on the history of the Supreme Court, and finally, Invisibilia is history, science, sociology, you name it—with such amazing storytelling that it’s always an inspiring, sometimes mind-blowing, listen.
