Default Re: Podcasts that are totally obscure and worth listening to

The Realness: an exploration of the life of the rapper Prodigy, who died last year from complications relating to Sickle cell anemia.
Aftereffect: an investigation into the Miami police shooting of caregiver Charles Kinsey while attempting to assist his autistic client Arnaldo Rios Soto in Florida, focusing on the care facilities for the developmentally disabled, and specifically the challenges faced by Arnaldo and his family.
Yo, Is This Racist? Andrew Ti and Tawny Newsome host- guests discussing racism and answering questions sent in by listeners.
Chapo Trap House: Dirty socialists shit on Jordan Petersen, mainstream liberals, and white supremacists.
Emil Amos' Drifter's Sympathy: one of my favorites: Musician Amos takes you through his exposure and experience of music, focusing on his relationship with a punk rock antihero as his spiritual guru, the evolution of music and the reasons for making it- Sebadoh, Sun City Girls, singles from Turkey in the 1970's, obscure tracks intermingles with his chaotic edge progression through his teens and twenties. Haunting, worth it.
Obscure with Michael Ian Black: he reads Jude the Obscure to you the listener, with commentary
Nerd Poker: Brian Posehn plays D&D with his friends, with the best metal opening songs ever
Spontaneanation: Paul F. Tompkins and friends perform a long-form improvised sketch, after listening to a guest be interviewed and then getting a surprise setting for the scene, incorporating details from the interview into the improv sketch. Older seasons are behind a paywall, but there's about 60 episodes available for free; additionally he has tons of people of color, women, and LGBTQIA improvisers on the show and it is awesome. PFT is a delight.
Small Town Dicks: true crime from I think the Northwest US; not usually my thing but so far fascinating.
The Champs: now defunct (2013-2015) but still available- Neal Brennan and Moshe Kasher do deep, irreverent, sporadic interviews with mostly black rappers and comedians- Aisha Tyler, Chris Rock, Too $hort, Big Daddy Kane.
Hello From The Magic TavernA podcast from The Vermillion Minotaur, a tavern in the magical land of Foon; co-hosted by Chunt the Shapeshifter and Usidore the Blue.
Whiting Wongs with Dan Harmon and Jessica Gao: a discussion about how to improve diversity in writer's rooms in Hollywood, with infuriating drunken tangents regarding sharks, but good guests, and Jessica is awesome.
Decoder Ring Theatre: Black Jack Justice specifically is what I liked; serial Noir in the old radio drama style; each chapter from one of the two PI's points of view; one male, one female.
