Limetown is a non-techy podcast well worth your ears

When you're not listening to the Android Central podcast, what other shows are filling up your feeds? There's a good chance if you're reading this then there's sure to be a fair showing of other tech related shows. You're not alone. But what about changing the pace a little and trying something new? Something fictional, even? Limetown is well worth the attention of your ears.

Serial set a new podcasting benchmark, showing that one story told episodically week-by-week can work in this medium. But, where Serial was telling a true story, Limetown is entirely fictional. Only it's so well delivered you'd be forgiven for thinking it's not. It follows that same kind of flow as Serial. You're following the tale told by Lia Haddock, a reporter for American Public Radio.

"Ten years ago, over three hundred men, women and children disappeared from a small town in Tennessee, never to be heard from again."

I'm not going to hint at anymore of the story, because that's all part of the experience. It's going to be delivered in seven parts and you'll never know exactly when the next one will arrive. It's being delivered in a non-uniform time frame, as if to add to the drama of what's unfolding. Currently it's only two episodes in so there's ample time to get caught up. It's really, really good. Check it out at the link below.

  • Found this awesome podcast the week it came out. Love it Posted via the Android Central App
  • One episode per week? More like one every other month. I waited so long for episode two that I have to reply episode one just to remember what the story is about. First was in July. Its the end of September and episode 2 just arrived.
