Switchyards
For the culturally curious
This weekly interview show is not even a year old, but host Clay Bolton (formerly of GPB) has a knack for snagging the city’s movers and shakers, from MARTA’s Amanda Rhein to artist Fahamu Pecou. The 30-minute chats feel more like casual conversations than formal interviews, but the guests still do most of the talking.

1 Beer 1 Song
For beer snobs
Since 2012, Russ Sauve and Tony Simon have paired craft pours with music tracks on their weekly podcast. During each 30-minute show, the amateur beerologists muse on the finer points of a brew, then play a song (Jason Isbell is a favorite). Just as it does during any good night of drinking, the conversation tends to meander—but is always entertaining.

Comcastro
For geeks of all sorts
In this daily talk show, which debuted last summer, host and founder Maximüs Groves invites guests from all sectors of the city—comedians, politicians, NFL agents, and scientists—to discuss their respective fields. As you’d expect from a podcast run by Georgia Tech alums, the resulting conversations are equally informative and irreverent.
