Best Local Podcast


Staff Pick

Of the growing number of local podcasts — an MP3 file that can be downloaded into an iPod — we’re particularly fond of SKEPTICALITY, the brainchild of Roswell roommates Derek Colanduno and Robynn McCarthy. The duo offers commentary on urban legends and pseudoscience, such as the phenomena of attributing human traits to lifeless objects (McCarthy humanizes her black Jetta) and of spreading the myth that Earth was flat (Colanduno says scientists put the theory in textbooks to make religious leaders look “scientifically stupid”). The podcast, which has 75,000 subscribers, is regularly one of the top 10 downloads on iTunes, right up there with “The Al Franken Show” and ESPN.
