Scratching my brain itch…

Welcome everyone to The Podcast Geek. Recently I’ve had a real need to do some writing. Almost a tangibile pressure in my skull, hence “scratching my brain itch”. Seeing as I spend literally 8 hours a day listening to podcasts I figured I’d start a blog to share the love and maybe recommend something new to discover.

I’ve amassed quite a collection over the years, so there’ll be lots of (mainly horror) fiction, folklore, history, actual play/boardgame related shows and true crime. What there won’t be is Joe Rogan. While I used to listen to the big bald shouty man, I have ditched his show in favour of more creative podcasts. I mean there’s only so many times I can hear him recommending hot yoga, Ju Jitsu and heroic doses of psychedelics.

Rather than just waxing lyrical about my favourite shows, I will also be reviewing shows that I perhaps haven’t enjoyed as much as others to keep in the spirit of a proper review blog. I mean, they can’t all be zingers eh? I’ll also be rating each one on “the brain scale”. Five brains is essential listening, and one brain is a show best left to people who don’t read this blog. That’ll serve them right (although to be fair, I can’t think of any one brain shows off the top of my head). I’ll also do my best to keep these reviews as spoiler free as possible. I am well aware that I’ll be covering a lot of well known, older shows that you’ll have heard of, but someone out there will no doubt be new to it, and I dont want to ruin any surprises for them.

Anyway, that’s enough of my ramblings for now, at least until I start proper posts, so please check back and if you’ve heard a podcast you think is great then drop me a comment and share the knowledge. If it’s a new one on me then I’ll definitely check it out and review it in due course. I’m always on the lookout for new content.

Lack of creativity can drive you mad.
