It's an exciting time to be a podcast addict — so many new shows are launching soon! Here are seven trailers (listed below in no particular order) that have me really excited about the future of my podcast subscription box...
Trailer for Still Processing [launch date: September 8]. A new weekly show from The New York Times, hosted by culture writers Jenna Wortham and Wesley Morris. Starting this week, they'll be chatting about the internet, film, books, music, television, politics and everything in between.
Trailer for Accused [launch date: September 8]. Two journalists — Amber Hunt and Amanda Rossman — investigate an unsolved murder from the 1970s in this eight-part true crime series. Hunt says, "This isn't a podcast that simply lays out a cold case. Our work here has helped resurrect it."
Trailer for Heavyweight [launch date: September 27]. In this new show from Gimlet, host Jonathan Goldstein (formerly of This American Life and Wire Tap) revisits the past with guests who have some serious regrets.
Trailer for In the Dark [launch date: September 13]. A new eight-part show from APR Reports explores the disappearance of eleven-year-old Jacob Wetterling twenty-seven years ago. Reporter Madeleine Baran looks into the mismanagement of the case, and now that his remains have been found, she asks, "Why did it take so long?"
Trailer for The Secret Room [launch date: September 19]. In the show's second season, hosts Ben Hamm and Dahlia Beta continue their search for the deepest, darkest secrets. The new season will feature tales of house fires, unconventional relationships, and a mysterious character nicknamed crackhead Johnny, among many others.
Trailer for How I Built This [launch date: September 12]. A new show from NPR in which TED Radio Hour's Guy Raz will talk with entrepreneurs and innovators about the companies they've built from the ground up.
Trailer for ...These Are Their Stories: The Law & Order Podcast [launch date: September 12]. A new show from Kevin Flynn and Rebecca Lavoie — hosts of the great podcast Crime Writers On... — who happen to be totally obsessed with the Law & Order television franchise. Along with fellow addicts, they'll dive into the show's archives and dissect their favorite episodes.
