3 Local Podcasts We’re Loving Right Now

Sit back, relax and enjoy one of these three podcasts.

SURE, YOU SHOP local and eat local, but do you podcast local? If you don’t, you really ought to. Here are three of our favorites to get you started. 

1. “Unsolved”

Spine-tingling stories about criminal activities can be extraordinarily entertaining. And this podcast focuses on local (and unsolved!) true crime, so you can go to bed pondering all of the horrible things that happened in familiar places, with a perpetrator who is still on the loose! Gina Barton from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel is a thorough researcher and thoughtful storyteller. And if podcasts aren’t your thing, she includes a written story with each new episode.

2. “Bubbler Talk”

What’s got you scratching your head about the Milwaukee area? That’s the question Milwaukee’s NPR team asks and answers for their listeners in this simple, but endlessly interesting, podcast. For example, do you know why some Milwaukee homes are built above street level? Each episode is only about ve minutes, and getting started is easy. Just pick a question that piques your interest, such as “Where Are Milwaukee’s Pigeons?,” and tune in.

3. “Mythinformed”

Interested in challenging your belief system? Then this is the podcast for you. The team surrounding “Mythinformed” is unafraid to tackle any subject, be it politics, religion or anything else you’ve been told not to bring up over dinner. The podcast has hosted some pretty noteworthy guests, including comedian Hannibal Buress and prominent science writer Dr. Michael Shermer.

Milwaukee Magazine’s own Ann Christenson hosts a podcast with 88Nine Radio Milwaukee’s Tarik Moody called “This Bites.” They talk about all things dining-related once a week.
