Last week radio producer Sam Greenspan of the design podcast 99 Percent Invisible gave a shout out to a new show from WFMU called "Why Oh Why" and added the hashtag #YSLTF ('You Should Listen To' Friday).
I saw the tweet a few days later and reached out to him, saying "Let's make #YSLTF a thing this Friday." Then we got Andrea Silenzi, host of "Why Oh Why" involved, and BOOM! a new Twitter trend was born.
The mini-meme is growing with tons of radio makers and radio lovers tweeting out the handles and links to their favorite podcasts, radio segments and audio storytelling.

A lot of other great suggestions are coming in from long-form radio stories to audio essays.
People are also suggesting everything from found sound to favorite episodes of well-known shows like This American Life to lesser-known podcasts.
Here are 10 to check out, recommended from our fellow #YSLTF followers...

We're also happy to report that #YSLTF ("yissel-toff"?) is already turning into a verb (like Google).
We'll be sure to keep updating the list. And be sure to join the conversation!
