Here’s a roundup of Raleigh podcasts you should check out to stay plugged in.
Raleigh Raleigh Raleigh
“North Raleigh spitting cobras.” “Bunch of jerks.” These are just some of the brilliant (and hilarious) shirt slogans that come from the brain of House of Swank’s local luminary John Pugh. Other genius fodder from Pugh? This podcast: All Raleigh. All the Time—just relaunched after a hiatus, but back and better than ever, featuring the movers and makers of Raleigh and, “honestly,” he says, “giving me an excuse to grab beers with friends.” houseofswankclothing.com/blogs/raleigh-podcast
Move over, Catfish. This docu-style podcast by host/creator and Apex-er Javier Leiva is about real people pretending to be other people (hence “pretend”). A mainstay on top 100 true crime podcast lists in the U.S. and abroad, Pretend unravels these stories one episode at a time as Leiva interviews “pretty much anyone living a lie” (think con artists, FBI agents, snake oil salesmen, the fake prosecutor, the liquor guy…). Um, we’re all ears. pretendradio.org
Voices for Victory
“Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up.” In that famed ESPY speech, Jimmy V also named three things he considered most important in life: “Where you started, where you are and where you’re gonna be.” Voices of Victory champions his vision of Victory Over Cancer by welcoming guests (Dereck Whittenburg, Jay Bilas, Andrew Jones, to name a few) touched by or leading the fight against cancer. v.org
Brewing up some can’t-miss convos on local suds, co-hosts Adam Eshbaugh and Joe Ovies create plenty of “brew-ha-ha” as they tap local brewers and chat beer news and more with this inside look at NC’s craft beer scene. Cheers! wral.com/919-beer-podcast/18354895
A podcast for podcasters and peeps looking to break into the world of podcasting, local podcast production company Earfluence partnered with co-working space Raleigh Founded in June to create a podcast studio space serving both brands’ clients and serving as a Raleigh resource.
