This Week in Podcasts: 8/12/18 – 8/18/18

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. 


Highlights

The Big Loop
“Surfacing”

The Big Loop has returned for its second season, releasing an episode that left me sobbing and stunned. You can read my full review of the episode here.

Kalila Stormfire’s Economical Magick Services
“Case File Thirteen: Catharsis”

Kalila Stormfire has always been wrapped in mystery, but in the finale for its first season, so much more is revealed about Kalila herself than expected. The reveal that listeners have been awaiting turned out to be an emotional twist, truly earning the episode’s title. If you haven’t started this magical audio drama yet, now is the perfect time to marathon listen between seasons.

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!
