PODCASTS



Green & Gold is a weed podcast hosted by cannabis journalist Hayley Fox. We talk to pioneers in the weed business: from entrepreneurs to activists, scientists, weed doctors, growers, politicians, plus everyday consumers like you to better understand the complicated world of cannabis.


Talking to people about the history of their favorite foods is a great way to trick them into telling stories they haven’t told before. Host Katherine Spiers brings the history, the guests bring the anecdotes – like Gail Simmons discovering American Thanksgiving, Jenny Yang’s childhood love of salad bars, and Scott Conant and Lorena Garcia’s fundamental disagreement about dumplings.



Gayest Episode Ever has screenwriter Glen Lakin and stay-at-home journalist Drew Mackie going through the great and not-so-great gay episodes of sitcoms past.



Singing Mountain is a video game music podcast hosted by Drew Mackie, who feels most at home in the music from 16-bit RPGs.



Actor and comedian Sam Pancake sits down with friends famous and funny to discuss the surreal, silly and nonetheless star-studded made-for-TV movies of the 1970s. It’s a loving look at baffling not-quite-feature-length flicks that often aren’t on DVD and have largely been lost to time.



Is there one single movie that you always find yourself recommending to anyone who hasn’t seen it? This podcast is about those movies. Each week, hosts Tony Rodriguez and Drew Mackie bring in a new guest to talk about a movie that has resonated with them strongly enough that they’ve found themselves saying, “Oh you have to watch this movie.”

Because console video games hit mainstream around the same time that America was watching a lot of B-grade action movies, there’s a more-than-occasional similarity between the way ’80s video games sound and the way those movies sound. It’s a good thing, and this episode is all about VGM that sounds […]
