Podcasting Milestones

Three long-running (and excellent) shows recently reached very impressive milestones. These all put the 11 episodes of my Quarter-Bin Podcast to shame!

SQPN: The Break. Father Roderick's show recently hit the 900th episode. This is now a mostly-weekly show, having started life as The Daily Breakfast, and covers pop culture, movies & TV, and current events and Catholic Church news. Father Roderick, a parish priest in Holland, oversees an entire network of podcasts. SQPN includes shows that cover more specifically spiritual content, as well as the excellent "Secret of" series of shows, that examine the lessons that can be learned from pop culture content such as The Hobbit, Star Wars, Harry Potter, and Battestar Galactica.

Battleship Pretension. This terrific movie criticism podcast recently produced its 350th weekly episode. Hosts Tyler Smith and David Bax take a thought-provoking approach towards current and classic cinema. They don't do movie reviews, they do actual film criticism, and do it very well. They occasionally have a guest-host, but most of the episodes are just the two hosts. This is easily my favorite movie podcast.

 The Danger Room. This X-Men comic book commentary podcast recently his its 100th episode. Hosts Adam and Jeremy started at the beginning of this comic's history, and are already in 1979. They take a modern view on these alder comments, and make lots of fun of the sillier aspects of these stories.
