Wild ones episode (ep 140ish) is up there with one of the greatest 40mins of audio I have ever heard.
Roman Mars has the most captivating voice, I would identify his voice a risk to my ability to concentrate on the road whilst driving.

I am a radiotopia contributor such is my appreciation for their work, I'd have to recommend Benjamen Walker's Theory of Everything also. His stories are such an effective way of explaining cultural phenomenon. Start with: Interserfs, where he "hires" an intern to help him explore the sharing economy.

I actually listened to that episode last week, and sent it on to others to listen to.
Roman Mars is also such a great name

Flats and Shanks is a weekly rugby podcast that seems to be all about what Flat's and shanks (two former players and current friends) did last week.
At least that was the case with the single episode I almost listened to the end of. If you want a blow by blow account of their experiences getting the car valeted and
how the barbecue went, I'd highly recommend it.

Enjoyed S-town. Atlanta Monster is worth a listen
Half way through Atlanta monster, enjoying so far. Is "S-town" good? Anyone listen to "up and vanished"?

I gave up on Atlanta Monster, found it hard to get into. S Town is definitely worth a listen. Very unusual story.
I've heard good things about Up and Vanished.

I really enjoyed S-town, and Serial series one. Series two wasn't so good. If you like the true crime ones like Serial, try 'Someone Knows Something', 'Accused' and 'In The Dark'. Oh, and 'Dirty John' was decent too.

Just finished 'West Cork' (about Sophie Toscan Du Plantier's murder) and while not as good as the rest of them, it was local and familiar. Just starting 'Up and Vanished', will let you know how I got on.

I tried 'Crime Town', 'Casefile' and 'Criminal' but I didn't really like the one episode per story thing.
