Castologists to the rescue with podcasts you'll want to subscribe to, stat! Zane gets his science on with The Joy of X. Nick gets his legalese on with Opening Arguments. Liz gets her "true crime but makes it art" on with The Apology Line. Then it's review time for all the goodies from last week. Liz Recommends - The Apology Line https://wondery.com/shows/the-apology-line/ If you could call a number and say you’re sorry, and no one would know…what would you apologize for? For fifteen years, you could call a number in Manhattan and do just that. This is the story of the line, and the man at the other end became consumed by his own creation. He was known as “Mr. Apology.” As thousands of callers flooded the line, confessing to everything from shoplifting to infidelity, drug dealing with murder, Mr. Apology realized he couldn’t just listen. He had to do something, even if it meant risking everything. From Wondery the makers of Dr. Death and The Shrink Next Door comes a story about empathy, deception, and obsession. Marissa Bridge, who knew Mr. Apology better than anyone, hosts this six-episode series. For both: It's a serial, so from the start. https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/wondery-presents-the-apology-line/id1179629560?i=1000505768852 Nick Recommends - Opening Arguments Every episode, legal expert Andrew and comic relief Thomas will tackle a popular legal topic and give you all the tools you need to understand the issue and win every argument you have on Facebook, with your Uncle Frank, or wherever someone is wrong on the Internet.

PODCASTS! People love them! And those who don’t? Well, they just haven’t been enlightened yet. But how in the heck do you figure out which ones are worth listening to? Castology, that’s how. Each episode our Castologists Liz, Nick and Zane will review some of the best (and sometimes not-so-best) podcasts around. They’ll also do the hard work and trawl the RSS feeds to find the newest podcasts that should be on your radar. Will they always agree with each other’s picks? Probably not! But hey, you’re clever, you know that’s how reviews work.
