The Obscure News podcast claims to feature "all the news the networks omitted." Dedicated to redeeming the ordinary, it's a chorus of anonymous voices telling those weird little anecdotes that are born every day, all tied together by a steadfast host, driving rhythm, and strategic bits of found sound.
