Personally, I love podcasts. They are great to listen to while driving to and from work, and for the commute from campus to my home town. I also do Uber Eats and Postmates, and sometimes music just doesn't work for me. Now, I would like to preface this recommendations post by saying that I am in no way an expert on podcasts. I can only recommend what I've listened to, and what has been recommended to me by others.
Limetown is a horror & sci-fi podcast created by Two-Up Productions that began airing during the summer of 2015. It focuses on Lia Haddock, an investigative journalist with the fictional station American Public Radio, in her search for the truth about what happened to the scientific settlement of Limetown, Tennessee. In 2004, all 327 inhabitants of the town vanished without a trace after a burst of strange activity. However, her interest is far from simple curiosity, as her uncle is among the missing citizens.
Limetown is also a novel by Cote Smith, and a tv series.
