Television recap podcasts are increasing in popularity and can provide interesting insight to your favourite tv shows. Some are better than others though and some are best avoided.
Which to avoid? Well sadly it seems to be the officially sanctioned ones. Unofficial podcasts are still run by fans, but the best podcasters will still criticise a show if it’s deemed warranted.
The worst of the official ones are little more than shrill. Everything is, ‘so great,’ or, ‘really interesting,’ or doing, ‘such a fantastic job.’ Then there is the prompt to go watch it on the affiliated network. They’re not as much podcasts as being advertising.
Give me the enthusiastic fan produced podcasts any day.
