15 Notable Podcasts That Came Out In 2016

What happened with podcasting in 2016? Certainly there was no runaway hit like “Serial” Season 1 that we can use as a tentpole to draw conclusions about The State Of Audio Today. When I think of this year’s water-cooler conversations on culture, the things that come to mind are “Stranger Things,” “Westworld” or “La La Land” — at least in my experience, no one podcast has yet to reach the critical mass of Sarah Koenig and co.’s serialized investigation of a murky Baltimore murder. 

That doesn’t mean that podcasts didn’t make an impact. When I look back at the audio that affected me this year, I think of emotional fictional narratives or soul-baring admissions of humanity

In an episode of Chris Gethard’s podcast “Beautiful/Anonymous,” he tells someone that in doing his show (wherein anyone can call in anonymously to a number and Gethard will give them one hour of his time to listen and chat), he hopes that people find solace in having a platform and feeling listened to. And in turn, listening to people reminds him that his everyday trials and anxieties are part of a larger whole.

That is part of why I find podcasts so appealing — they help me remember that there are millions of experiences and perspectives I have yet to learn from, or appreciate. In short, in 2016, I spent a lot of time listening to people.

Below is a selection of podcasts that were born (or reborn) in 2016 that I loved, and hope you will, too.

2015-05-08-1431125928-4266441-fathom_podcasts_spring.jpg

These tiny, portable files make for perfect travel companions. They don’t take up space and provide hours of entertainment on the go.

By Berit Baugher for Fathom | It took the Serial phenomenon to unite Team Fathom on the awesomeness that is the podcast. Without naming names, there were a few skeptics in the bunch to balance out those of us who’d been touting their love of the medium for years. But we’re all on the same page now: These tiny, portable files make for perfect travel companions. They don’t take up space and provide hours of entertainment on the go. Here’s what we’re listening to this spring. Some new. Some old. All worth a download.

1. Song Exploder

In each 12-20 minute episode, a musician breaks down one of his/her songs. After listening to the science behind the song, you hear it in its entirety with fresh ears.

2. Dear Sugar Radio

The advice columnist who calls you “sweet pea” and urges you to fight your insatiable jealousy, find redemption, and “write like a motherfucker” is actually two people, Steve Almond and Cheryl Strayed, and now a radio podcast. The pair delve deeply, empathetically, and beautifully into questions of nurture, acceptance, loss, infidelity, and love — and help you decide when to hold the reigns or let them go so you can ride out your wildest journey.
Start here: Meet the Sugars

3. Martini Shot

The weekly four-minute KCRW podcast created by producer, screenwriter, author (and Fathom contributor) Rob Long breaks down the ins, out, and insanities of Hollywood.
