This Week in Podcasts: 3/18/18 – 3/24/18

This Week in Podcasts is 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! You can see my current list of podcast subscriptions here. Feel free to give me recommendations–as well as any feedback or discussion!–in the comments below or on twitter. 

This week, Limetown announced the release date for its second season and opened pre-orders for its prequel novel. I reviewed The Bright Sessions‘s “50 – Rose,” which I’ll also touch on below. I also listed my all-time favorite podcast episodes as a thank you to my Patreon supporters.

As a note, next week (4/1/18), there will not be a This Week in Podcasts post! I’ll be taking the weekend off.

Don’t forget to sign up for the Podcast Problems newsletter for weekly recommendations, news, musings, and more!


The Bright Sessions
“50 – Rose”

“50 – Rose” is literally a dream come true, a full musical episode of The Bright Sessions, and it still surpassed my expectations by a wide margin. You can read about it both in my episode review and on my favorite episodes ever list.
