I was listening to an episode of the BBC's "History Extra" Podcast sometime in the last year or two and they interviewed a historian who'd recently written a book about utopias, specifically a failed New England farm in the 1800's started by people with good intentions but who weren't good at farming. Does anyone remember this episode or know the book it was talking about? [more inside]
So, due to a series of computer hard drive failures and cross-oceanic moves, I have no access to my music collection right now, and may never get it back. I've decided to look on it as an opportunity to start afresh and get into new music. I listen to a lot of podcasts, so I'd like to add one that's new music focused. Do you have any recommendations? Further specifications follow. [more inside]
Hi MeFi! I can't remember where I heard a podcast about a British guy who ends up in NYC, meets "Claire" on a dating site (I think?), and then proceeds to have a beautiful intellectual relationship with her only to have her start getting horribly sick. Turns out it's a giant hoax she is playing on him just for fun... any ideas?! Thanks!
I’m looking for a specific podcast episode featuring a man who started taping everything around him for years in hopes that the found sound would lead to a good radio story but it never did. I think the piece was on Transom, but it could also have been on something similar, such as This American Life or Love and Radio. A number of very specific plot details inside. [more inside]
I need new podcasts to listen to! I like two kinds of podcasts: 1) high-production, good sound design, on almost any topic (think 99% Invisible, RadioLab) and 2) historical and/or biographical topics (Everything is Stories, Backstory, Criminal). And a few others. But my playlist has gone stale -- refresh me? Examples of what I already like and dislike are inside. [more inside]
I read tons of small to medium blogs, read and listen to many independent news producers from public radio to online editions of mainstream newspapers to indy news sources, and listen to dozens of different podcasts. I have started donating directly to a few of these writers and producers, but frankly, it's impossible for me to donate to all of them. What can I do to support a sustainable economy for these nonprofits/progressive media companies/small ventures/creative projects/etc? [more inside]

I really love British panel shows. I would love to find some podcast equivalents, with the caveat that I am in the US so they need to be available for (relatively) easy download directly to my iPhone in the US, preferably through iTunes, though iTunes availability is not a dealbreaker. Any recommendations? [more inside]
Anyone out there listen to the Ars Paradoxica podcast? It's terrific -- I'm really enjoying it -- but now I'm breaking my brain trying to crack the codes at the end of each episode. Any hints? More inside, with some spoilers for stuff I've already figured out. [more inside]

I'm trying to improve my ability to write convincing dialog for non-native English speakers.

Hi, I'm trying to put together a week of lectures on Women in Refrigerators for my students and I have gone and found Gail Simone's old list and looked at Feminist Frequency's episodes for Bitch Magazine, and I have some passages from a myth textbook and Joseph Campbell's work. But I want to add one of my favorite podcasts, On the Media. I vaguely remember the host Brooke Gladstone talking to a guest once and she says that when she was younger and she remembers watching those old black and white movies like Perils of Pauline she remembers there being something vaguely erotic or sexual about the way that the evil villains would tie up the damsels in distress and leave them on the railroad tracks, and she may have said she wrote her masters thesis on it? But I can't find a thesis on Proquest or JStor that Brooke published, anyone with a fantastic memory?
Please help me name my "podcast feed delayer" project. I'm working on a small spare-time project that proxies a podcast feed (or any RSS/Atom) but delays it by some amount of time, and can also reduce the interval between episodes. Use case: did you discover Welcome to Night Vale recently and want to start at the beginning, but don't want all old the episodes in your podcatcher right away, and instead want them to be doled out periodically (eventually catching up with the new episodes)?

In episode 1 of Season 2 of Serial, it is noted that Bowe Bergdahl left behind all his "sensitive items." Someone clarifies that sensitive items are "serial numbered gear that would be a problem. Like his weapon, the laser for his weapon, the optic, his night optics..." I understand why the Army would not want this technology to be in the hands of the enemy. But what do the serial numbers have to do with it? [more inside]
I have an iPhone 5s. I have the apple podcast app. How do I view podcast episode descriptions? When I am on a podcast's "page" it has a list of episodes each with a snippet of description - "What happens when you combine an ax..." But I can't figure out how to read the rest! Any insight?

As I delve deeper back into the sublime grip of Star Wars fandom (I had escaped for a while), I've decided that I'd like to add a podcast or two to my podcast listening habits.

I've been helping my wife produce a podcast. It publishes through a Wordpress site sitting on Dreamhost. We have Google Analytics set up for the site (which existed as a blog before the podcast came along), but unless I'm reading them wrong, they don't appear to show podcast downloads. What's the best way, either through Google Analytics or some other route, to get reliable numbers on downloads? [more inside]

There is a podcast I subscribe to that posts two episodes each weekday. This show has some recurring segments that I generally like to listen to, but I skip the rest. The episodes that I don't listen to are cluttering my podcast app and sometimes I miss the episodes I do like in the mess of all the episodes I don't necessarily care for. Is there a way I can filter out the episodes I don't care for? [more inside]
Where can I find excellent movie discussion, analysis, reviews, dissection, etc by women? I feel like I have a stable of great film-related youtubers, writers, and podcasters that I enjoy, but they are largely male -- I'd love to discover more current work from women in this area. Thank you!
My 8 year old son LOVES history. He also loves audiobooks and podcasts as he can listen whilst doing his other great love - Lego!

I'm looking for a segment from This American Life to have a friend listen to, because the story is oddly specific to her life. The segment is about a man and a woman who were at one point married, but then divorced, because the husband suffered from a type of delusional disorder where he believed his wife was sleeping around with just about everyone. The interview was from the perspective of the woman, since the man had moved on to a new woman, and presumably would take up the same course of actions with her (the wife's words [paraphrasing here]). I've looked through the tags on TAL's website and even searched by air date back, but I think that the part I'm looking for was fairly short within the context of the episode itself. IIRC, in the same episode, one of the presenters on TAL talked with a woman who was sort of a secret agent, maybe met her in a bar, and followed her around for a bit. I know for certain that that part was in the same episode. If anyone out there can hope me find this episode, I would forever be in your internet debt!

I heard a great story about a waitress in Hollywood who dealt with a vulgar regular diner who turned out to request her every time he returned. Eventually they develop a friendship and he flies her granddad to Las Vegas so he can fly a vintage WWII airplane he bought from Tom Cruise. Ring any bells?
