This Week in Podcasts: 2/24/19 – 3/1/19

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

Greater Boston
“Episode 34: The Storm on the Sea of Galilee”

This episode of Greater Boston is hard to discuss without spoiling, especially in talking about what makes it so great. The performance by James Oliva as Michael hits a new, heartbreaking high, and the writing breaks form while still focusing on the characters at its core. If you’re not listening to Greater Boston, you’re missing out on one of the most beautiful, inventive podcasts being made right now.
