1. Reply All | Gimlet Media
Here’s where my rankings may get called out as extreme. Strangely, there are several people (see iTunes reviews) who don’t like this show at all. However in this poll, only one man’s opinion matters in ranking the best of the best.
Reply All is the first Gimlet production after StartUp. Hosts PJ Vogt and Alex Goldman got their start at WNYC’s TLDR. The quirky dynamic-duo moved to Gimlet last year to produce essentially the same show as TLDR, just with a new title and more consistent releases. While Reply All is dubbed “A Show About the Internet”, its stories go much deeper. Thought provoking topics and incredible production with a soundtrack by The Mysterious BreakMaster Cylinder is sure to bring pleasure to your ears.
I’ll admit that I’m being slightly biased by ranking my favorite podcast No. 1. I was originally going to place Reply All No. 2, behind Invisibilia. But after I heard the latest episode, which provided updates on several of its great stories from 2015, I bumped Reply All to its ever deserving No. 1 spot.
