You can debate whether Reddit is a force for good or evil in the world, but you cannot dismiss its dizzying depths. As a venue for people of every stripe to trade advice, develop conspiracy theories and get woke (among other things), it's a living online community, and there is nothing to rival it. In this podcast, Reddit's head honchos pluck out the very best of the site's offerings - which rise naturally, via democracy, to the top of the pile - and talk to the real people behind those posts. Even if you're not a regular user, you will recognise many of these stories from the viral portion of your news media: we meet such luminaries as the guy looking for someone with the same name as his ex for a trip around the world, and the NSFW Double Dick Dude, as well as gamers, former heroin addicts and chicken farmers. In Season 1, around 40 half-hour to hour-long episodes are available.
Gateway episodes: 7 Double Dick Dude (26 Feb 2015) / 12 The Surprisingly Complex Life of a Vacuum Repairman (2 Apr 2015) / 22 The Button (11 Jun 2015) / 38 Hold On (1 Oct 2015)
