Hip Squared Season 2 Episode 9



In this episode of Hip Squared, we walk through the neighborhoods of a couple different podcasts. Troy tells us about The Walk, a 1st person podcast that adds a new twist to the audio genre. Instead of experiencing a story being told to the listener, The Walk makes the listener the main character. Everything the listener hears reflects what’s happening to them in the story. Troy tells us what works and what doesn’t work with this new form.

John talks about two paranormal podcasts, Mysterious Universe and Astonishing Legends. Both of these tell “true” stories of the strange and supernatural, with the personalities of the hosts infused throughout. Mysterious Universe is an Australian podcast with two hosts that have a darkly funny sense of humor. Astonishing Legends is an American podcast by an older pair of gentlemen who are more genial, and present a profanity-free experience. John recommends both.

Produced by Maplex Monk.
