USA Today’s entertainment blog Pop Candy aired its first weekly podcast today, featuring clips of recent interviews and music recommendations. While it seems like blogger Whitney Matheson is still getting used to the format, she has a relaxed charisma similar to that of This American Life’s Ira Glass (who I want to narrate my life). Her inaugural podcast pushes indie duo the Submarines, and features an interview with comic Laura Kightlinger about her new IFC show The Minor Accomplishments of Jackie Woodman. Kightlinger’s awesome deadpan is perfect for radio, making her a hard act for future interviewees.
