While We Own This Town offers an enjoyable variety of our own podcasts, we make no claim that we’re the only resource around Nashville for finding quality shows. With that said, we’re going to start a regular feature of spotlighting other podcasts created outside of the WOTT Network that are still absolutely worth your time and ear investment. If you’ve got a podcast you think we should hear, contact us and we’ll check it out!
To ease you into Other People’s Podcasts, here’s one with a familiar voice as co-host. You Are Good is brought to you by Nashville Demystified’s own Alex Steed with You’re Wrong About host Sarah Marshall. The show was originally entitled Why Are Dads? and investigated the role of fathers in our lives through the lens of pop culture. Since that inception, the framework of the show has opened up and now it’s a deep dive into just what the hell it means to be a grown up… through the lens of pop culture! Lots of great guests throughout and they do a wonderful job of balancing heavy subjects through levity and familiar cultural touchstones.
GO TEAM VIDEO is a relatively new podcast at the time of this publishing but the folks behind it should be names you’re quite familiar with. AMPM Video has been making music videos for the likes of Kent Osborne, Heinous Orca, Ryan Mims and many more for years. If the name isn’t ringing any bells just watch their reel and you’ll be in a good place.
The AMPM Video crew is offering up the GO TEAM VIDEO podcast as a means of bringing in a variety of musicians, artists, creators and random guests to discuss movies that helped to influence their craft. It’s early days but there’s already a varietal offering through E.T., The Witch, Blade and more. A fun listen, for sure.
Your Inner Child Is An Idiot strikes close to the heart! Hosts Damon Xanthopoulos and DJ Phillips pick a movie or TV show from our collective childhoods, rewatch it and decide if our warm fuzzy feelings of nostalgia are warranted or not. Did you love My So-Called Life? How about He-Man and the Masters of the Universe? Any Spider-Man movie? They tackle them all over the course of 150+ episodes and do so without being punitive or overly damning in their verdict. In my opinion, it’s a downright hilarious show and well worth a subscription just to remind yourself that the lens of time definitely shifts and distorts. That said, occasionally your Inner Child was not an idiot and you loved something that stands the test of time; a real feel good win.
Truth be told, East Nashville Yacht Club is an enigma. It’s not particularly about anything. There’s no conceit surrounding the show to frame each episodes discussion but, much like Seinfeld, a show about nothing can still be extremely entertaining. The hosting duo brings in a delightful cast of guests – including former mayor Megan Barry, local bands Jive Talk and AG Sully and local comedians such as Joshua Black, Brad Sativa, and Cortney Warner. The discussions cover just about any topic and it feels like sitting at a bar and listening to some friends have a rousingly good time.
