All the podcasts I listen to are for their comedic content. I feel like waiting for a podcast episode to come out is not the best way to stay on top of current events. Much quicker to use the internet or listen to talk radio.

Also, this thread sounds like a marketing thing. Like a focus group. Who is behind this?

Most of my podcasts are True Crime and RPG related, with some comedy, history, and politics mixed in. But here is my recommended list:

1) My Favorite Murder and Last Podcast on the Left: True Crime and Comedy podcasts. Last Podcast on the Left's humor is "you either love it or hate it" but if you are a farker you'd probably like it. The moon conspiracy one is hilarious.

2) Abe Lincoln's Top Hat and The Young Turks: Political. Abe's is a bit more metered with a host that is left leaning and the other right leaning (libertarian). Turks is progressive left but is willing to call out democrats/liberals on their crap.

3) Our Fake History and Born Yesterday: In depth history podcasts, can't recommend them enough

4) Stuff you missed in History Class: Shorter history podcast

5) Monster Talk and Skeptoid: Skeptic scientific podcasts

6) Shameless plug for my friend's gaming podcasts: Advantage to insight, It's like DnD, and the Guantlet.

I haven't added this one. What makes this one unique from the other Crooked Media ones?

It's a bit more comedy driven with more dumb but funny games, impressions, etc.  (The others have this a little, especially when Lovett is participating.)  It's actually my favorite Crooked Media podcast.

Ahh, thanks. I will give it a try then. I love when they do the playback of a politician's speech and stop it to interject. :)

Adam Carolla, religiously.  I generally disagree with his politics, but he has a pretty diverse guest rotation and there's comedy with a dash of politics, or a sports-heavy show.  It varies often and really good.

Joe Rogan.  while they average usually a solid 2.5 hours, sometimes more, he gets an equally diverse guest pool and they get into some shiat.  it is usually a standup comic, someitmes a UFO/Bigfoot/Aliens guy, or the occasional athlete....Really good stuff.

Marc Maron.  Amazing interviewer.  very diverse guest list.

The Mastering Show.  As a live show taping enthusiast, I dig stuff that talks about audio recording/producing.  While some of it is over my head, I still dig it. a nd there's great anecdotes about some bands or records, re production.

Walking The Floor.  Foo Figters guitarist Chris Shifflett is way into old / authenitc Country music, so this podcast he talks to a lot of legends or artists that still play real country music.  but then he'll sstill bust out John Doe or some other artist.  really cool stuff.

I like both of those. Last Podcast a little more than My Favorite Murder because they tend to tell the stories with more jokes.

Heh, ok.

 Bill Burr's Monday Morning Podcast is a great weekly listen.
The Joe Rogan Experience has some really intertesting guests, sometimes controversial people who are in the news right now.
Ari Shaffir's Skeptic Tank

I love Tom and Christina P but i just can't get into that.  whenever they're on Rogan i laugh my ass off but.....theirs just doesn't work for me.  weird.

A while back I tried to listen to his show, but Rogan always came across to me as such a dumbass with weird biases and conspiratorial leanings that I had trouble listening all the way through.  Maybe I've give him another chance.

You are taking a small slice and projecting it over the whole.

Joe is a dumbass.  He says that he's a dumbass all the time.

It's probably that they're always making fun of retarded people that makes you uncomfortable.

I mainly enjoy the conspiracy/'controversial new theory' episodes.  i generally skiip over the MMA athletes or a few specific guests (bryan redban, that aubrey marcus guy who tells those dopey stories about how high he got).  and the alt journalism ones too.


jaylectricity: It's probably that they're always making fun of retarded people that makes you uncomfortable.


they seem to be funnier to me when they're guests.  when they're doing their own thing i just don't nearly the same comedic content.  but yeah, i love when they're on rogan.


I used to religiously listen to Jay Mohr's Mohr Stories, another great interviewer.  but he seeems to have stopped doing those and just a very short podcast now.  ever since his divorce he quit his sports talk radio show and vastly dialed down his podcast.  we all change i guess.

The cracked podcast (and the spinoffs) for background while doing housework

History of rome, tides of history, fall of rome and revolutions for engaging history

Hardcore history for lengthy driving

Planet money, 30 for 30 and criminal for quick tasks like working out

Waypoint for the sjw video game coverage

And my current favorite, our fake history, for a Canadian take on historical myths and legends

Three Moves Ahead for my strategy gaming needs

Revolutions and Hardcore History, because listening to podcasts require you to listen to at least one history podcast at all times.

Super Sentai Brothers, because I need to shamelessly plug my friends Super Sentai (Original Japanese Powerrangers) podcast.
 
2017-11-06 01:17:01 PM  
Giantbombcast and Gamers with Jobs for games and computer nerdery

Wait Wait don't tell me and the Bugle (was better when John Oliver was the cohost, but Andy is still funny) for laughs

Hardcore History for a good deep dive into historical events

Rotate around a few from TWIT, usually Security Now, Windows Weekly, or This Week in Tech

I love these threads, I'm always on the lookout for new podcasts.
My current favourites:
Hardcore History - Dan Carlin is awesome
Futility Closet - ALWAYS interesting
WTF with Marc Maron - selectively depending on the guest
Rum, Rebels & Ratbags - humorous take on early Australian history
Failure to Launch - several comedians/film makers(?) ripping the shiat out of failed TV pilots
Reply All
The Tolkien Professor
- new to me, picked it up from Fark last week
Science Vs.
Something True
- a comedic history show, very well done, very funny. Can't wait for season 2

shortymac, there appears to be two "Born Yesterday" podcasts - "Born Yesterday" (We The Blue) and "The Born Yesterday Podcast" (Joey Brunelle). Which one do you recommend?

Gilbert Gottfried's Amazing Colossal Podcast. Seriously-I went into it looking for some offensive laughs, and discovered an amazing 'love letter' to the legends of the golden age of Hollywood.

And jokes about Cesar Romero.

I like News in Slow French/Spanish/Italian, One thing in a French Day, Coffee Break French/Spanish/Italian, etc., but interested in others.

I have a pretty solid rotation that fits my amount of chore time at home and "get shiat done" time at work during a normal week.

NPR:
-Up First
-Ask Me Another
-Wait Wait
-Car Talk (depending on my mood)
-It's Only a Game (Really good sports storytelling but the opinions lean heavy on baseball and nostalgia)

Sports: I miss my Atlanta sports radio personalities, so I listen to their podcasts.
-Chuck and Chernoff (Atlanta's afternoon drive team)
-Southern Sports Today (The best and most unbiased SEC/ACC and occasional "other" college football coverage)

Miscellaneous:
-NutritionFacts with Dr. Greger (Science-based look at nutrition studies and health)
-Cadence (an interesting look at music psychology but only had one season of 10 episodes last year)
-Containers (an interesting deep dive into the world of containerized shipping. Sponsored podcast, but unbiased content. Again, only one season last year)
- Bite (Mother Jones magazine's food podcast)
-Progressive Faith Sermons from Roger Ray (Progressive church in Springfield, MO for a really different take on a church sermon. I feel like they we t downhill beginning around the beginning of the BLM movement. Older ones are more focused on a critical reality-based view of Christianity and now are more SJW stuff)

There's a lot of podcasts listed that I'll have to use this as a bookmark.  The vast majority of podcasts I listen to are business/stock related.

Marketplace with Kai Ryssdal.  A daily recap and very well done.
Odd Lots.
Stacking Benjamins.
The Displined Investor
DH Unplugged.  One of my favorites.  Humorous and can be all over the place
Wall Street Unplugged.  Can be a little slow and I'd take his advice with a grain of salt but still worth a listen.
Planet Money.
 
2017-11-07 07:36:22 AM  
Crime in Sports.Not a sports podcast. Just two comedians discussing criminals that happen to be athletes. Lots of brain damage, bad decisions, and cocaine. Bonus: No OJ. There are a lot more interesting, and hilarious, crimes out there. These guys dig deep instead of grabbing the low hanging fruit.
 
2017-11-07 12:00:58 PM  
Two that haven't been mentioned yet:

Sawbones - medical history (humorous)
Radiolab - outstanding science reporting
