Jeff Cannata Is the Podcasting G.O.A.T.
I'm not usually one to just fanboy about someone on this blog, but I wanted to take a second and express my appreciation for Jeff Cannata, who I seriously think is my favorite podcaster ever. The short of it is that I will listen to any show he does, and every show he's done is magical.
We Have Concerns
If I had to pick a favorite right now, it would be We Have Concerns, which he co-hosts with Anthony Carboni, and is a "science comedy podcast" that covers amazing stories in the world of science with such wonder and humor. They also have a Patreon where you can get extended episodes where Jeff and Anthony talk about random stuff before each episode.
Every week with a We Have Concerns is a good week.
DLC is a podcast about video games that's been running for about 9 years and has held my interest throughout it's whole run. They recently started a Patreon as well (they used to be on 5by5), and if you subscribe to that, you get:
- The DLC podcast about games with Christian Spicer (ad free)
- The Wednesday bonus show with Christian and Lana Bachynski which is an absolute joy and is a freeform conversation about whatever is on their minds
- The Feeling This! show on Thursdays about some game that they love
The Filmcast (formerly the Slashfilmcast) brings along David Chen and Devindra Hardawar as well, and is a great show about movies. I'm sorry I have less to say about this one, but the best thing I can say is that I love movies and this is the only movie podcast I really enjoy week in and week out.
I guess all I'm saying is that Jeff Cannata is great, I pay for 2 of his Patreons, and I think more people who follow me should check out at least one of these shows because I think you'll really love at least one of them.
