Recommendations – CYAPodcast


The podcasters recommend stuff during every show. The recommendations are listed on that episode’s blog post, but we thought it would be good to start collecting them in one place. They are loosely organized into “Books”, “Movies/TV”, and “Websites/Other Stuff”, and each includes the name of the recommender in parentheses.

NOTE: This list is current through the end of December, 2011. Since then, the podcasters have been posting their recommendations on Pinterest. Enjoy!
