Top 50 of 2011 Podcasts Part 1

By The Staff | 18 December 2011

Now that you’ve worked your way through all 50 spots of our Top Albums of 2011 list, and had a few days to reflect on how correct we came, why not immediately relive the magic all over again? Only this time in reverse, and with almost five hours’ worth of songs instead of 25,000+ words. Got an upcoming road trip, or flight, or maybe just a large family get-together? Here’s your new extended soundtrack.

…and if that, along with the No Big Hair 2011 podcast, just aren’t enough to get you through the next few weeks, how about our 30+ other podcasts from this year? Do a marathon; make it an endurance contest; ring in the new year by playing them all simultaneously, on your biggest speakers, at the loudest volume. Or from your car through a loudspeaker as you drive around the neighbourhood, perhaps. Spread the joy, I guess is what I’m saying.

But, of course, start here:
