A few years ago, I started listening to podcasts. I'd never had any real interest in them before, but I was stuck in traffic and had nothing better to do so I figured, "what the hell." The first podcast I tried out was NPR's Pop Culture Happy Hour and I instantly fell in love.
After that, I was addicted. I started listening to audio-dramas, game shows, and investigative journaling either in the comfort of my car or while running or just doing chores around the house. You can imagine my excitement when, at BookCon 2015, I learned that one of my favorite podcasts, Welcome to Night Vale(a podcast that presents itself as community updates for the bizarre desert town of Night Vale) was going to publish a spin-off book. I was ecstatic.
Since then, Night Vale has published two more books, as companions to the first and second seasons of the podcast. Then, I discovered on Twitter that The Moth Radio Hour had also published a collection of their best stories from the show and had a new collection coming out this spring. Which led me to start compiling lists of podcasts that I'd love to own in book form. So, whether you are new to podcasts or as addicted to them as I am, here are just a few that I think that should make the transition from earbuds to page.
