a lot of podcasts – and i'm thinking of those that exist at the shaggier/looser/less polished & edited end of the spectrum –evidently exist to be comfortable, to reassure, like the artistic equivalent of an easy chat with friends you see all of the time. So a lot of their strength derives from creating familiarity, and as they proceed through their runs they accrete habits/bits/in-jokes.
And these tend to grow more ornate over the life of the podcast, until every episode begins with a 5 minute bit that needs to be carefully enacted before anything else can happen.
