I’m always on the hunt for new and interesting podcasts that help me learn, understand and laugh.
Most of the ones I listen to regularly tackle national or global topics, but it’s been great to see a small resurgence of podcasts that are local in origin and explore local issues and news. (You may remember that from 2006-2008 I hosted a weekly podcast called The Richmond News Review, one of the first local podcasts around.)
Unfortunately there are no results if you search on “Richmond, Indiana” in popular podcast directories like the iTunes store. But, if you’re a podcast listener (or can consume audio in some form – no fancy Apple device is necessarily needed) and looking for some local flavor, here’s a list of podcasts around Richmond Indiana:
Life According to Adeshile
Interviews, commentary and productivity tips with a focus on entrepreneurship, from Adetokunbo Adeshile. Available on Soundcloud:
The Wake Up Call
Local news, commentary, events and interviews with Phil Quinn. Available on iTunes and the web.
Earlham College Podcast
Profiles of faculty, students and programs at Earlham, with Brian Zimmerman and Mark Brim. Available on the web.
RadioTroy Interviews & Clips
Conversations with local athletes and sports personalities, with Troy Derengowski. Available on YouTube.
I’ll be happy to add to this list. If you know of an active, locally-focused podcast that might be of interest, just leave it in the comments below.
