    Question Your Favorite Podcasts

    What Are Your Favorite Podcasts?

    It seems like podcasting is experiencing a surge in momentum and perhaps entering a golden age. I find a lot of the well known podcasts to be enjoyable, but there have to be tons of hidden gems out there.

    What kind of podcasts do you listen to?
    Where do you listen?
    What are your recommendations?

    I really like Daily French Pod. These NYC history podcasts are nice enough, too, if the subject interests you.

    Apart from that I only really listen to (foreign) radio on my phone, because Italy and Hungary tend to have the better classical music stations.

    I can't help you find the "hidden gems"; my tastes are pretty pedestrian, and I find new podcasts from the top of the charts listings.

    Nonetheless, if you aren't already listening:
    This American Life
    Savage Lovecast--Magnum
    Serial
    the occasional Radiolab or Wait, Wait download for car trips, etc

    Huh, that guy is still around?! He is that sort of D-list celebrity that you vaguely think may have died from an overdose a couple years ago....maybe?....until someone tells you/posts evidence that he has managed to continue to exist.

    How dudebro is rogan compared to an adam corolla?

    Rogan is awfully damn dudebro.

    I like Sick and Wrong. Cracked. TEDtalks. Stuff You Should Know.

    I often adopt and drop podcasts. A lot of the NPR casts are good. Also the Discovery ones such as SYSK.

    David Wong, regarding Chicago
    Six centuries ago, the pre-Colombian natives who settled here named this region with a word which in their language means "the Mouth of Shadow". Later, the Iroquois who showed up and inexplicably slaughtered every man, woman and child renamed it "Seriously, Fuck that Place". When French explorer Jacques Marquette passed through the area he marked his map with a drawing of a brownish blob emerging from between the Devil's buttocks.

    Less dudebro, more pseudo-intellectual hippy.

    I do a lot of the usual NPR stuff, as well as lectures for work stuff. I've also started listening to "New Yorker: Fiction," which is part reading, part discussion. There's a history of Rome one that is interesting in theory, but I rarely get around to it.

    Entitled Opinions with Robert Harrison. He's a Stanford humanities scholar who invites experts on any an every subject you could ever find interesting for an hour long conversation that'll make you want to smoke a cigarette by the end. The episodes are free on Itunes. Check it out.

    Also: Philosophize this! is typically a rewarding experience. The guy has remarkably well-prepared, half-hour scripts, thoroughly engaging, on all topics philosophy explained to the level of a layman. It too is on Itunes.
