You know we love all things local — including San Diego-centric podcasts. We’ve rounded up five shows that entertain while dropping knowledge on that local life. Sound on, SD.
“All in San Diego”
Hosted by former local radio personalities AJ Machado and Sara Perry, this podcast highlights the people and places that make San Diego amazing. The duo cover everything from hidden gems and restaurants to seasonal events and landmark attractions — and we’re all in. Episodes drop several times per month.
“Beer Night in San Diego”
If you’re a local craft beer enthusiast, this one’s for you. Billed as “San Diego’s first and longest-running beer podcast,” this show focuses on indie beer news, interviews, and beer education — topped off with humor. Episodes drop a few times monthly.
NBC 7 sports reporters Darnay Tripp and Derek Togerson hop on the mic to talk all things San Diego Padres. It’s a mix of analysis and interviews — with a bit of insider baseball — since these guys are all about the love of the game. Episodes drop every Thursday.
“Amazing Wildlife: A San Diego Zoo Podcast”
We’re wild about our zoo animals in this city, and this podcast gives a behind-the-scenes look at the rare species, research, and ongoing conservation efforts at San Diego Zoo and San Diego Zoo Safari Park. It’s hosted by renowned San Diego Zoo Wildlife Ambassador Rick Schwartz, joined this season by Marco Wendt. Episodes drop every other Friday.
The San Diego Public Library (SDPL) created this podcast to connect locals with SDPL services, facilities, and staff. The show — of course — talks books and authors, but it also delves into community resources and events, plus fun interviews like this paranormal activity-themed installment. There are 33 episodes so far.
