This Week in Podcasts: 9/17/17 – 9/23/17

This Week in Podcasts a weekly roundup of mini-reviews of all of the podcasts I’ve listened to in a week. If you see any podcasts that you feel are missing from my list, there’s a good chance I haven’t listened to the show yet! Feel free to give me recommendations–as well as any feedback or discussion!–in the comments below, in my asks on tumblr, or on twitter.

This week, The Bright Sessions‘s Charlie Frail (also known as Charlie Ian, who voices Damian) announced a new sci-fi audio drama, and PodCon confirmed their list of featured guests for the 2017 convention. I also got excited for Halloween. This was also a great week for podcasts, so there’s no pitfalls to be mentioned.


Highlights

Wolf 359

“Episode 54: The Watchtower”

This week’s Wolf 359 was a great return to the character, stakes, humor, and drama that fans of the show have come to expect. After episodes of developing other characters more, it was a nice return to true protagonist Doug Eiffel as he corresponds once again with the Dear Listeners, ending in urgency, heightened stakes, and one of the show’s best cliffhangers to date.
