Before we wrap up for the year, I wanted to run a selection of those Best of 2018 lists that frustrate some people, and I generally find pretty fun to peruse and read. It’s been quite a year. Here we go:
- My top ten overall podcast list for Vulture.
- My top ten podcast episode list for Vulture.
- Caroline’s top ten overall podcast list for The New Statesman.
- Sarah Larson’s top ten overall list for The New Yorker.
- Anna Bonet’s top ten picks at Harper’s Bazaar UK.
- The New York Times’ five round-table picks.
- HuffPost’s thirty-one round-table picks.
- The AV Club’s 2018 podcast superlatives.
Also, I just wanted to share this: a few weeks ago, back when I was doing a bunch of re-listens in preparation for my list, I sent out a Twitter bat signal for folks to tell me about the listens they most enjoyed from the year. Here’s that thread for your perusal, which packs in a whole universe of taste. Keep scrolling, y’all.
