Hmmmm.  They panned it on the Slate Culture Gabfest, but I might give it a try on the strength of your recommendation.

So far all three guests they've had on have been people I already liked from Comedy Bang Bang.  I'm already used to Paul F. Tompkins laughing off mic and Mary Holland purposely talking in a shrill voice, but I guess they might not come off so hot if you aren't accustomed to it.

I'm enjoying the Washington Post's Constitutional. It's a well told history of the constitution and its amendments. It seems like they're going for elements that make a good story rather than going through the history of the constitution line by line (which is what I initially hoped) but the engaging narrative has surpassed my expectations so far.

I'm sorry that should have read: The Amazon Washington Post. Want to make sure I'm not deceiving anyone about the source. Also in the interest of full disclosure my wife works for Amazon so George Soros can direct deposit every time someone listens to Constitutional.

Did you listen to Presidential, Neutral Milk?  Besides Lillian's silly "what would a date be like" segments, I was happy with the overall series.

I did not. Didn't hear about it until Constitutional. I'm full up on podcasts at the moment so I can't dedicate the time to go back and listen, but if it's anything like Constitutional I'm sure I'd enjoy it

Is it just me or does there seem to be a sudden rise in the number of podcasts about the American legal system?

Started listening to Magnus Archives.
 It's a fictional narrative of a paranormal research group in England. The framing device is the podcasts are audio recordings of reports that cause odd disturbances when trying to add them to a digital archive.
 It's been pleasantly creepy.
