Read the Internet’s round-ups of best podcasts of 2018

Podcasts had a banner year, accumulating ever-growing audiences, ad revenues, and impact on popular culture. That also means podcasts are now subject to the annual practice of the “best of” list. Publications large and small are posting their lists of the top shows of 2018. Some focus on particular subjects, others highlight ambitious new projects, others just go for overall quality. Here, in one convenient location, are as many of those year-end round-ups as we could find from reputable or interesting sources (yes, The Onion totally counts).
