First off, hello, I'm new here, and I hope this is an okay place to ask...what podcasts are you all into? Here's some of my favorites: Dispatches from Myrtle Beach: Link from Good Mythical Morning...
First off, hello, I'm new here, and I hope this is an okay place to ask...what podcasts are you all into?
Here's some of my favorites:
Dispatches from Myrtle Beach:
Link from Good Mythical Morning has a conversation with his father. It's a strange mix of funny, heartwarming, raunchy, and endearing.
The Newest Olympian:
Mike Shubert from the Potterless podcasts reads the Percy Jackson books (I tried reading along with the podcast because I'd never read them, but couldn't put the books down, so I'm ahead of the podcast now). It's a funny podcast regardless if you've read the books.
RadioLab and the new season of RadioLab's More Perfect podcast
If you've never listened to radio lab, just pick any episode. They're interesting and weird and you'll learn stuff. They're just good. The new hosts are still finding their way, but it's still good, so maybe start with some of the older episodes.
Judge John Hodgman
- He settles stupid disputes between people...e.g., "Is a hotdog a sandwich" (No.)
- Even if I've never heard of the song I listen. It's about how songs are made, and it's super interesting.
- it's about recognizing all the fascinating things in the world around us that we pass by every day without noticing. Always read the plaque.
Oh No, Ross and Carrie
- they do non-sciencey things and then discuss from a science perspective. (E.g., joining a religion, going to flat earth meetings, visiting psychics, getting holistic medical treatments, etc)
This American Life
just interesting stories about people and things in life?
The Memory Palace
super cool podcast...usually pretty short that takes things from history and tells the story in just a unique and interesting way.
deep dive into science news for the week
Behind the Bastards
all about the worst people in history.
Sawbones: A Marital Tour of Misguided Medicine
Hilarious podcast about medical history
The Adventure Zone
The McElroy family plays dnd and other role play games
people tell personal stories to crowds of people.
New York Times's podcast
Wait Wait Don't Tell Me
news comedy gameshow
Good Job Brain
pub trivia podcast
A Hotdog is a Sandwich (but it's not)
Good Mythical Kitchen's Josh and Nicole debate food things
Dead Pilots Society:
really interesting. They take scripts from failed TV pilots and hire actors to do table reads of the script. Every other week is an interview with the script's writers too, so you can listen to those if interested or just the table reads if not.
just interesting tidbits. Short podcasts.
I'd love to hear your recommendations!
Edit: Thank you all for all the recommendations! I'm still reading all the posts and adding them to my list to give them a shot!
