Pod-crushes: The Crushes Brought To You By Audible.com and Listeners Like You

Podcrushes are a special type of crush. For podcast denizens such as we, these crushes transcend appearance, and are based solely upon personality (or, persona, at the very least). It's all a lot like that time Zack Morris fell for the girl in the wheelchair he'd only heard on the phone. It's not that we want to date them, necessarily; rather, we want to be their best friends, hang out with them and eat Pizza Rolls, discuss whether or not "Bates Motel" is effectively filling that "American Horror Story" insanity void, and, you know, if Mantzoukas wanted to get handsy, no big deal, that's just where the friendship went naturally.

Anyway, here they are.

Janet Varney -- "The JV Club"

Tom Cavanagh -- "Mike and Tom Eat Snacks"

Vanessa Ragland & Cole Stratton -- "Pop My Culture" (seen here with a similarly crush-worthy Erinn Hayes)

Joanna Robinson and Courtney Enlow personally know a few people who cast the pod. Those people were disqualified from this list lest things get awk.ward. But our #1 would totally be this guy from that show.
