Who are you, and what do you do?
Hi! I’m Cory Schmitz. I do freelance graphic design & illustration. I do logos, posters, album covers, shirts & more for folks like PlayStation, Anamanaguchi, Polygon, Jim Guthrie, & Double Fine.
What podcasts do you listen to?
I listen to podcasts all the time. Most are video game related, but my favorite podcast is specific segment of a comedy radio show called the Best Show on WFMU. My favorite part is Jon Wurster‘s (drummer of Superchunk & the Mountain Goats) weekly call. It is what I believe to be the funniest thing ever. If you just want to hear those calls, you can listen to Best Show Gems, where they pick a classic call every other week. It’s seriously so funny. Kris Piotrowski from Capy introduced me to it & now I’ve listened to hundreds of hours. My Brother, My Bother & Me is another good comedy podcast.
My next favorite podcast is 8-4 Play. It’s definitely my favorite video game podcast. They’re funny, they talk about the games & news I care about, & they’re good pals of mine! I also like Player One Podcast, Giant Bombcast, CAGcast, Red Sun Gamer, & the Besties. I have like ten other video game podcasts I listen to when I’m bored.
For music podcasts, I mostly just listen to XLR8R Podcast now. I used to listen to Boiler Room Podcast, Stone’s Throw Podcast, & Low End Theory Podcast, but they don’t really update any more (on iTunes, at least). I like listening to Boiler Room sets & BBC Radio 1 Essential Mixes on Soundcloud, but those aren’t really in podcast form. Every once in a while I’ll listen to Savage Lovecast, Hardcore History, This American Life, Radiolab, & 99% Invisible, but not so much anymore. One time I listened to a graphic design podcast, but it was so snobby, I couldn’t stand it, haha.
How do you listen to podcasts?
I mostly listen to podcasts using the Podcasts app on iOS. Either that or on iTunes on my computer at home. I listen to them while walking around, or going for a run. I usually just listen to music while I work.
