The Authoritative Music Podcast Guide

In today's digital world it seems everyone has a podcast about almost every conceivable topic. From sports, to movies, to construction, to gardening it seems every hobby or interest has a corresponding podcast. If you are a huge music fan like myself, there are plenty of choices when it comes to finding a great music podcast.

For indie music fans, check out the Low Times podcast, hosted by Maggie Serota and Tom Scharpling. You may know Tom from The Best Show on WFMU. Low Times highlights include interviews with Lou Barlow of Dinosaur Jr. and Sebadoh, Dean Wareham of Galaxie 500, and Peter Prescott of Mission of Burma and the Volcano Suns. Indie music fans should also check out Music That Matters, put out by college radio station KEXP in Seattle. This podcast has more music than talk, and is a great place to turn to if, like me, you don't have enough time in your life to source out new music and rely on the music review work of others. Sock Monkey Sound is also a great podcast for the hard-core indie music fan, with in-depth interviews and news. If you're a fan of 90s British indie rock genres like Brit-Pop, Shoegaze, and Twee, check out Indiepop Radio, which is broadcast out of the UK. Lastly check out the Noise Pop podcast, put out by San Francisco radio station KQED.
