This Week in Podcasts: 1/21/19 – 1/25/19

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.  You can see a list of every episode that has scored within the A range here.


Highlights

Caravan, “Riders in the Sky” and “On the Road Again”

The Whisperforge’s new production, Caravan, debuted this week with two gorgeous episodes that feel both emblematic of the studio’s pillars and completely new. With gorgeous sound design and intimate writing, Caravan feels like a perfect fit for The Whisperforgebut Caravan already feels like an exciting tonal departure. Following, and narrated by, protagonist Samir, Caravan is about a strange canyon with cowboys, demons, and “unicorns,” but it still manages to feel emotionally captivating within its bizarre slipstream setup. The characters are immediately captivating, and Sushant Adlakha’s Samir already feels like one of the great leads of 2019.
