When Janet asked me to guess what she would title her Guns N’ Roses podcast, I took ten minutes to think. My best guess was Get in the Ring.
I had additional guesses:
Can’t Get Enough of that Wonderful Duff
You Talkin’ GnR to Me?
What’s So Civil About Podcasts, Anyway?
GnR - Lies (and Truths)
And as it turns out, not of these were correct. However, the lone podcast solely dedicated to GnR I was able to find is named Get in the Ring. Whoa! Great minds think alike! Or, if all of their podcast episodes are the same as the only one I listened to, a great mind and a few not great minds think alike!
I was interested to see how other podcasters had named their fan appreciation shows, but was surprised to find few results in my searches. After the relatively large (and very wonderful!) impact of “U Talkin’ U2 To Me”, I figured I would find a podcast for every big band from the ‘90s, but as far as I can tell, that’s not the case. Pearl Jam podcasts seemed the lone exception -- Evil Little Goats (named after an outtake!) and Given to Cast both exist, but even those seemed to burn out after a few episodes.
I suppose it’s easier to talk about a plot-driven television show than a collection of music, but I still find it strange that we live in a world where every episode of Gilmore Girls gets a podcast, but not every album of Radiohead.
If it’s podcast names that is keeping these would-be shows from existing, allow me to help:
