    I dug up a thread from 2005 suggesting there should be a Fedora Lounge podcast, which surprised me that we were talking about them so early. The comments there are funny, in hindsight.

    My wife is very much into true crime stories (and is starting work on her Masters in abnormal psych to back it up). She's just completing her first in a series of podcasts about the hundreds of solved and unsolved murders which have taken place in small towns in Ohio. They tend to be forgotten rather quickly, and she wanted the victims to be remembered with respect and dignity.

    I don't have much time or patience (or a regular commute) for regularly listening. I like a series from NPR about the inner workings of our minds, and a couple of others when I can. Brett at The Art of Manliness creates a lot of them. We probably should at some point.

    What do you like to listen to? What are your favorites?

    The Country Squire Radio Podcast - pipes and pipe tobacco
    The Briefing - news commentary by Albert Mohler
    The HT Guys - home theater gear and consumer tech
    I Hear of Sherlock Everywhere & Trifles - for Sherlockians of every stripe
    The Dividing Line - apologetics
    ...and a host of one-off OTR or modern day audio drama, with some music podcasts for drive time

    If the Fedora Lounge could put on a podcast, I would definitely listen in. Lizzie Maine would be a natural for this!

    ... a couple more, that I inadvertently left off the previous list-
    Classic Mysteries - a short review of recently republished mysteries from the Golden Age; Les Blatt, the host, is knowledgeable about the genre and obviously appreciates the books he reviews.

    The Warner Archive Podcast - a (almost) weekly podcast that promotes dvds and blu-rays released by Warner Brothers. A good number of the titles are from 30s, 40s, 50s, and more recent years. The three hosts are a trove of film history-

    Tonight, The Thrilling Adventure Hour and their presentation of Sparks Nevada, Marshall on Mars. Good quality voice acting with clever repartee. Clearly recorded before a fan-filled audience in an intimate venue. Enjoyed it very much.
