The Brand New Podcasts Of 2018 We're Most Excited About

I never struggle to wake up on Thursday mornings, and it’s because I know new episodes of two of my favorite podcasts — Reply All and Who? Weekly — are waiting for me. Each episode feels like a hang-out session with my old friends, who happen to share my strange and particular interests. That’s one of my favorite things about podcasts: They’re unabashedly specific. Whether you’re obsessed with true crime or makeup or Gilmore Girls, you’ll find your podcast community.
There are already so many incredible podcasts floating around. And, because we’re lucky and get things we don’t deserve, there will be many more brand new shows arriving in 2018. From a Marvel scripted original to a show featuring the best stories of Reddit, these are the podcasts that everyone's going to be talking about. The mini-Serials, so to speak.
Here are the best new podcasts of 2018. We're including entirely new endeavors, as well as new seasons of shows that change dramatically between seasons.
