Podcasts, Podcasts, Podcasts...What do you listen to?

Thu Aug 22, 2019 12:37 am

While, I've always listened to the Art of Manliness podcast while running, I've recently started to listen to more podcasts.

Some of the notable ones are:

-Art of Manliness, an interesting mix of topics, some really interesting, some really...meh.
-Flight Deck Podcast, the official podcast of the Museum of Flight.
-Stuff You Should Know, little tid-bits of information.
-TED Radio Hour, a wide range of topics...little out-takes from longer talks.
-Ephemeral, this is a weird one. So, I like it.
-Noble Blood, short snippets about royals, some obscure, some not.
-Aviation Geeks, all aviation topics...industry news, history, interviews with famous types.

I don't listen to any political podcasts, nor any from the established, or not established media types. Too one-sided.

So, what do you listen too?

Airline Pilot Guy Show (As the name implies mostly aviation), Dumb People Town (Stupid news stories, mostly in Florida), How Did this get Made (making fun of bad or stupid movies), Rooster Teeth Podcast (don't really know how to describe this one if you aren't familiar with RT, they are a web production company that primarily do comedy stuffs) and Off-Topic The Achievement Hunter Podcast (sub-section of RT focused more on gaming but the podcast as the name implies goes all over the place).

Most of mine are radio shows that I catch up on.
13 minutes to the moon
Infinite monkey cage
More or less:behind the stats.
50 things that made the modern economy
The curious cases of Rutherford and fry
And finally the only one that is not science and geekiness is ‘the bugle, the audio newspaper for a visual world’

Bill Simmons Podcast - Good mix of sports talk, interviews, etc. The other podcasts on his network are usually pretty good too.
This American Life - I think it's pretty well known already, but a great weekly dive into a range of topics
LeVar Burton Reads - Remember Reading Ranbow? Now he picks and narrates a short fiction story every week for grown-ups
Giant Bombcast - My favorite for gaming discussion
Retronauts - A great one that does dicussions about various topics in video game history

I rediscovered Freakonomics, and binged it while tilling and reseeding my lawn this past weekend. Good stuff there.

Another one I found today is Plane Crash Podcast. The one I listened to today is United 811. I haven't got through the whole podcast yet, but it's not bad. Since I'm on the technical end of the business, the synopsis of the events was a little superficial, but adequate for the un-washed. Looking forward to hearing the rest of the podcast, and other episodes.
