General audio discussion
« on: June 26, 2016, 05:43:02 AM »
That is, audio outside the realm of music. e.g. audiobooks, podcasts, lectures, etc.

in my occupation i get a lot of time to myself for the most part. i haven't been into music much lately (it's a phase that happens sometimes), and i've worn out my Coast to Coast collection pretty hardcore so i'm looking for something to fill that void.

i've been trying to find audio along the lines of mythology (specifically norse and germanic. i downloaded something from demonoid ages ago but i've not listened to it yet, all it says in the title is "mythology" so i'm not even sure what the contents are) and maybe some theology, anything in the paranormal realm, but anything outside that will do too. preferably non-fiction, preferably informative.

any recs you can throw my way?

Look at my "knowing" thread. There are some podcasts and stuff there. Probably audio books in an archive there somewhere. Also the audiobook thread on /t/ isn't bad

Get the Susan Wise Bauer history audiobooks. And anything by Anthony Everitt. And if you really want to go history geek get onto the TGC/TMS/TTC lectures.

Got into some podcasts recently. LORE is fantastic, really good stuff focusing on (obviously) folklore and all that comes with it, with an emphasis on related aspects as well. Recommended for anybody into that sort of thing, urban legends, weird phenomena, etc.

The Black Tapes is another good podcast, albeit a fictional serial. It plays out like an ongoing radio documentary, following a reporter investigating a James Randi like professor who offers a $100,000,000 reward to anybody who's effectively able to prove the existence of any type of paranormal or supernatural phenomena. But then certain aspects of his background begin to come into question as the reporter investigates cases he's worked on, and soon they all find themselves in the middle of a (possible) demonic conspiracy. Starts off pretty shaky but picks up halfway through the first season.

Got into some books on tape as well. In the middle of the 10th Anniversary edition of American Gods which has a full voice cast and has been expanded by Neill Gaiman. It's pretty good, actually. Recommended.
