I've been using a podcast app on my phone and there are so much stuff in there that i can hardly find anything cool.
Lately i've been listening to "Downtown soulville" from WFMU, has some really great vibe and nice songs.
Are you podcast listener?
What would you recommand?

I don't know anything about podcasts other than the ones that everybody else knows... This American Life, The Moth Storytelling, WTF, that stuff.

I got around to listening to Low Profile with Jeffrey Lewis tonight. It was a nice little history lesson of the songs and comic books and it was nice hearing it as a linear thing for me. Iíve been listening to all the different Jeff projects for so long I forget the exact timeline and could never remember the dates of my life and what I was doing. It was nice to hear a bit about the newest recordings too as I havenít seen them covered much yet. Looking forward to the new projects soon.
Recommended.

I don't remember which one was the Low Profile thing but I usually find myself insufferable when listening back to anything like that, but I guess we all hate to hear our own voices talk on answering machines etc!
I'm not much of a podcast listener, but I've been really enjoying listening to the DJ sets that Ira Kaplan of Yo La Tengo has been doing once a week on WFMU, they are all archived, I love his eclectic music choices and I enjoy hearing him talk.

And I've been listening to all the episodes of "The Toth Zone" which is a memoir podcast by my old buddy James Toth (he performs as Wooden Wand and I've done various tours and gigs with him, I met him in the 90s and his little home-made cassette label put out some of my earliest stuff). I don't know how interesting it would be to people, just hearing him talk about how he got into music and his family and stuff, but I enjoy hearing his friendly voice around my otherwise-empty apartment, and the episodes are pretty short, like 17-20 minutes, so it's not a big ask. I thought episodes 5 and 6 were particularly good, but i started at #1 and I've listened through to about 17 or 18 at this point.

The Low Profile was the one that you posted on Facebook maybe a week or so ago.
Thanks for the recommendations I love something good to get into. I will get around to them.
At the moment I am fascinated by incels and have been autistically researching them. Iím not one but am interested in them so have been listening to lots on that.

I thought incels was just a fancy word for people who aren't currently in relationships? But I guess I should look it up myself since I probably don't know what it means really.

Thatís the broadest sense of the word yes, the involuntary celibate. Itís a whole subculture with language of its own. Some of it is very hateful towards women.

I've been enjoying The Anthropocene Reviewed. Soon the book will come out too, with essays in the same style. Episodes are quite short, usually under 25 minutes and they don't come out very often (1/month). It's a nice reflective podcast on any topic pertaining to humans, how they impact the world and how the world impacts them.

This is a great one, reminds me a bit of a Jeffrey lewis history lesson in a way.
