I don’t believe we have an auditory equivalent to the Whatcha Readin’? and Whatcha Watchin’? threads yet, so this thread is for the discussion of new or obscure podcasts that you think other mutants would dig, but they may not be hip to yet.
I’ll start: This morning I just stumbled across a multi-part audio play called “The Message” presented in the form of fictional podcast called “Cyphercast.” The podcast tracks a team of cryptographers who attempt to decipher an alien transmission broadcast to Earth 70 years ago but soon realize that it has “The Ring”-like implications for anyone who hears the recording.
Compounding the problem dramatically is that audio of the transmission itself was broadcast the second episode and the podcast went viral after being mentioned on Boing Boing. Thanks a lot, @doctorow!
