Audible Feast’s Best Podcasts of 2017

Audible Feast’s Best Podcasts of 2017

Happy Holidays! I’m so excited to share Audible Feast’s Best Podcasts of 2017. This year I increased my subscription count to 446 podcasts and over the past 12 months I have listened to somewhere around 2000 episodes of various shows (you can check my list here!). I’ve really tried to diversify what comes in my ears, and appreciate all the recommendations I’ve heard from my readers. Keep them coming.

There are three lists here: the best overall shows in 2017, the best new shows that I want to hear more of in 2018, and the honorable mentions. This post covers the best series, and I’m working on the best episodes of the year – that post will be published in the next few days.

If you’re new to Audible Feast, I publish reviews of all kinds of shows and curate a list of the best stuff I’ve heard all week on Fridays. I have had some great guest reviews in 2017 and have interviewed a couple of amazing podcast hosts. I also have a newsletter that is published every other week. Here’s to even more great audio in 2018!

The Best Podcasts of 2017

The cream of the crop, the best of the best. Each of these shows appeared on my Delicious Ingredients lists more than once or had a 5-star review in 2017. Why Oh Why appeared a whopping eight times on my weekly best-of lists, and Between Us Girls, Terrible, Thanks for Asking, The Karen and Ellen Letters, Criminal, and Inflection Point with Lauren Schiller were also recognized repeatedly throughout the year.

The Best NEW Podcasts of 2017

These are some of my favorite new shows in the past year. I haven’t listened to enough episodes of each to place them in the overall best podcasts of the year, but I am excited to hear more from most of them – some series may not have release dates for additional content, but I’m hoping for it pr for another show from the hosts/producers.
