Podcasts are in abundance. Woordbuis.nl provides a weekly media person who selects his or her favourite podcasts to help you navigate the site. Today: Koen Maas’ podcast tips.
After a long time with NPO Radio 2 & 3FM After working as editor-in-chief and manager of the online department, Koen Maas started working as a freelance content creative. Also, a new skill came into play. Create podcasts. And in his case even The Perfect Podcast. A series of talks and specials with makers, connoisseurs and enthusiasts about the rich history of… Suske en Wiske!
He enjoys podcasts that are more colorful. „Chatcasts as Teun and Gijs of De Shitshow are entertaining and listen well. However, if more attention is paid to research, soundscaping and a good structure, then that is of unprecedented added value for your listening pleasure.”
An gripping and richly documented podcast about nebulizing Hans. The podcast’s creator, Hans, is a cheerful Amsterdammer who has Alzheimer’s disease. He was closely following Hans and his family until they moved to a care home.
True crime is popular, but often you are left somewhat dissatisfied with the outcome afterwards. Not at The Ratline. Podcast about a British journalist discovering that the father of an Austrian friend is a prominent Nazi. He hid in the Alps for many years, and later in the Vatican. It was great, and Stephen Fry is one of the voice actors.
One of the best podcast documentaries I’ve seen heard so far. The series is about Dolly Parton’s influence in America and her legacy. Dolly Parton herself, as well as guest speakers and a passionate search, will be part of the series.
Even such a gem. Richard Simmons, a fitness phenom and television star, was a huge success in the eighties & nineties. But he continued to teach Friday dance classes. He disappeared one day. One of his students goes looking for him.
The first conversation, in which Gijs Groenteman talks to Hans Dorrestijn about his past with Harry Bannink, is immediately hit. The conversation is both informative and funny, as Dorrestijn allows the waterlanders’ stories to flow. The rest of the podcast is a collection of wonderful anecdotes. It was the deciding factor for me The Perfect Podcast to go make.
