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, I wrote reviews for Two Broads Talking Politics and Words to That Effect. I also updated my speculative article on the My Brother, My Brother and Me VRV show to make it much less speculative.
As a note, this This Week in Podcasts only goes through the afternoon of Friday, 5/18/18, as I’ll be out of town for the weekend. This week will also not have a newsletter. Regular programming will return next week, and you can still always catch me on Twitter.
Don’t forget to sign up for the Podcast Problems newsletter for weekly recommendations, news, musings, and more!

These weekly roundups are some of my favorite to write, but they’re also some of the most exhausting posts to write. Keeping up with all these podcasts is time consuming!
