Thinking about getting into podcasts? Not surprising, they are coming back in and it’s a great media to consume content on the go. *Little disclaimer they are all kinda geeky, just warning you.
So here are my top 10 podcast:
The Black Tapes is a fictional podcast created by Paul Bae and Terry Miles. It is hosted by Alex Reagan (voiced by Lori Henry), released as a spin-off of the fictional radio program Pacific Northwest Stories. the story begins as a biography of paranormal investigator Dr. Richard Strand (voiced by Christian Sloan), an “evangelical skeptic” on a mission to debunk all claims of the supernatural. Reagan becomes interested in his collection of unsolved cases, which she begins calling his “Black Tapes,” and the podcast evolves into an exploration of these cases, paranormal culture, and the mysterious life of Dr. Strand. This one is a little scary but it is really, really good.
