1. Time Magazine says that 1619, Mobituaries, Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend, Scattered, Decoder Ring, Last Days of August, Blank Check with Griffin and David, You're Wrong About... and Moonface are the ten best podcasts of 2019. While I have listened and enjoyed many of these shows, I'm especially excited that Moonface has made the list, as this Thursday I'll interview creator James Kim for season two of Inside Podcasting. Please let me know if you have questions you'd like me to ask James.
For those of you who haven't listened to Moonface yet, Time says "James Kim’s fiction podcast immediately draws the listener into the restaurants and dive bars of Downey, California outside of Los Angeles... As he tries to bridge the emotional and linguistic gap, the show trusts that non–Korean speakers will understand the sentiments, if not every word, of their conversations: the struggle to be understood is universal."
