Next Door Villain
“A podcast that attempts to empathize with fictional villains”
Tiana Hennings & Joe Anderson
About the podcast (from the website):
Welcome to Next Door Villain, a podcast where we practice empathy by discussing the humanity behind our favorite fictional villains.
Each episode, hosts Joe and Tiana discuss a well-known fictional villain. They attempt to find the humanity behind these characters so that we can learn to love, and respect them. Because if we can learn to connect with characters that were designed to be hated, then we might just have a chance at understanding the villains we face in our everyday lives.
At the end of each episode, Joe and Tiana explore various creative mediums to try and understand that villain from a new perspective. These have been poems, short stories, monologues, and even an ad-lib once. If you are a writer or creative type, we encourage you to head over to the submission page to learn how you can write a piece and be featured on our show!

It’s always a joy to listen to this one!
That’s such a unique podcast idea, great post Stephanie!
It’s a really great podcast! Light, fun and the hosts are awesome!
That seems like a great podcast as I love villains and trying to understand their motivation!
The hosts do a good job with it too!
I’m starting to get into podcasts more so this is good to know 🙂
I am really bad about listening to podcasts but I will see if I can make time for this one. It sounds really good.
H hello, this sounds incredibly interesting! I can well imagine a lot of writers finding good info in here!
Ooh, I added this podcast to my playlist a while ago (I’m guessing probably after a recommendation post you did 😉 ) but I haven’t listened to it yet so far. Now I’m newly excited to try it though, because it does sound like such a fun podcast!
It IS a fun podcast! The episodes are never too long and it always entertains me.
“A podcast that attempts to empathize with fictional villains” — well now, with a tagline like that, who wouldn’t want to check this out? I guess I’d also add Disney’s movie Maleficent, that had the same theme going on. And Naomi Novik’s Uprooted.
Ahhh I forgot Uprooted but it’s been so long since I read it so forgive me haha
