What Podcasts are you listening to - Part Deux
« on: March 06, 2017, 03:16:51 PM »
Hello Fellow Mustachians

A while back I inquired what podcasts people were listening to.  There was a lot of great info shared.  I used the information to find some new podcasts to listen to.   Since that time I have narrowed my podcasts down to:

Mad Fientist - Usually like the topics.  Less than an hour.  Good stuff
Stacking Benjamins - About an hour.  Ok topics.  Don't usually walk away with much but good listening.
Freakonomics - About an hour.  Love the topics.  Always interesting.
Planet Money - About 20 minutes.  Interesting and variety of topics.
Cal Cast - Just because you have to love the University of Kentucky

I'm looking for some additional ones to listen to.  Please reply with your favorite podcast and indicate the reason why.  Please also indicate how long the podcast is and how often it comes out.  Please just respond with your 1 favorite podcast

Looking forward to your responses.

Side Hustle School, by Chris Guillebeau. www.sidehustleschool.com

Chris is giving us a side hustle success story every day for this whole year. Some of the stories are a little zany, all are interesting. Each episode is only 7-10 minutes long, so it fits in perfectly in those little blocks of time throughout the day. Many loves. Such awesome.

Joe Rogan Podcast

2-4 hrs in length and typically posts 4-5 per week.

I've been really into this podcast for about the last 6 months or so, but I've been listening on and off for a few years.  He does a good job of bringing on interesting guests from all sorts of backgrounds.  He regularly has comedians and fighters, but he also has a good mix of scientists, strength and nutrition professionals, political guests...etc etc

Recent episodes that were really good.

Henry Rollins Interesting views on the world and travel.  He is an engaging story teller

Leah Remini Interesting look into scientology

Gary Taubes Nutrition focused episode

Dan Carlin's Hard core history is my new jam.

I like some of Ezra Klein's interviews. 

Cracked podcast, but only the ones with David Wong/Jason Pargin.

Reveal is also really good.

I liked Serial when it was running, both seasons.

Right now Bad With Money with Gaby Dunn http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/panoply/bad-with-money

Roughly 40-minute episodes, once a week (new season starting soon!), all about money-related issues. Hers is the one podcast where I must immediately listen to it as soon as I realize there's a new episode. Gaby Dunn herself is hilarious, and most of the episodes involve interviewing others about their relationships with money, like growing up with class anxiety or how "Death is F*cking Expensive"

Also anything by Gimlet Media is fantastic.

EconTalk is a great academic podcast that is heavy on Austrian and Chicago economics and has much more of a 'lecture' feel.  I really like it.

Money Guy Brian Preston is a financial planner in Georgia that does a pretty 'traditional' financial podcast.  I've listened to him for a few years, and there are some real gems in there.  Much less hardcore than Fientist/Radical PF, but covers things like 529s and travel insurance that I don't usually think about.

Marketplace is my daily commute podcast.  That and whatever the most recent BBC Global News update has been.  I'm actually gradually weaning myself off daily news updates in favor of listening to the entire Economist audio edition in 1 hour chunks each day.  I feel like that still gets the news themes across without being a fire-hose of speculation like listening to real time updates is.

For some less serious options:

My Dad wrote a Porno is suuuuper NSFW, but basically it's a bunch of British comedians reading the erotic novel that one of their dad's wrote.  It's... amazing. The commentary is so funny that I've had to pause while I catch my breath.

The Mortified Podcast is a live performance podcast of people reading from their childhood journals and diaries.  Incredibly funny and a little poignant.  Cool to see how all the anxieties of being a kid and teen are usually unfounded in the end.

You asked for one but listed five so I'm going to break the rules and list five. 
1) How I Built This: NPR 30-45 minutes about how people started their successful businesses.
2) Welcome to Night Vale: quirky 20-30 minutes horror comedy.
3) Stuff You Should Know: ~1hr various topics; always interesting (to me).
4) Bigger Pockets: ~1hr real estate.
5) History of Philosophy Without Any Gaps: 15-20 minutes self explanatory from the name.

Always been a This American Life fan. But looking for more.
Tried The Minimalists, and while I enjoy many of their blog posts I find the podcast repetitive and annoying.

If you like real crime-- Case file is amazing!  He's Australian so sometimes the accent is a little thick.  Also the first 6-8 episodes are much more amateur until he gets a "real" studio voice and help.  From then on, it's fantastic.  The first episodes are good, but he tends to drop his voice and ramble a bit.  Someone obviously started coaching him after that. 

Lore--also great!  Based on all sorts of real-life creepy stories from history to present.

I have so many podcasts that to get through all of them each day I'd have to devote like 6 hours.

The best ones I've run across are--

Motley Fool Money. Best stock discussion I've found.

Side Hustle. really short, really interesting.

Vox Weeds and 538 are the best politics podcasts.

And of course there is the standard NPR fare like Fresh Air, This American Life, Radiolab, etc.

The one podcast that I assiduously avoid is NPR politics. Too much national politics.

All things Gimlet media.  My favorite is Reply All, which is about internet related topics and run generally 30-45 min.  That's the one I listen to as soon as it comes out.

I listen to TED radio hour. Lots of interesting subjects.

I listen to a Norwegian podcast, Pengerådet, about how to be smart on money.

Waking Up with Sam Harris is by far my favorite podcast.  Sam has been unjustifiably vilified from pretty much every direction but I've always found that people who disagree with him actually disagree with a strawman distortion of his arguments.  In the podcast he engages in long (~2 hour) discussions with people on topics including the nature of consciousness, morality, ethics, philosophy, AI, meditation, and recently politics.  He comes at all of these topics from a philosopher/scientist's point of view.  Episode #53 "The Dawn of Artificial Intelligence" is one of my favorites.
I also like Vox's "The Weeds" for policy (not politics) discussions and the "You are not so smart" podcast.  Episode #72 "The Dunning-Kruger Effect" was a particularly good episode of that podcast.

Seconded Reply All. (I've been working through the Gimlet podcasts myself).

My other pick is fairly mainstream- NPR's Invisibilia. (my psych major is showing).

I noticed that no one mentioned comedy podcasts so Last Podcast on The Left is a HILARIOUS comedy podcast about weird sometimes dark topics.

Generation Why / Sword and Scale / Undisclosed / Serial - All true story/crime
Brute Strength / Barbell Shrugged - Fitness podcasts
Abe Lincoln's Top Hat - balanced politics with some humor

Seconding this recommendation.

I will also throw in Shaun Stevenson's "The Model Health Show" as a recommendation for health & fitness podcasts.

Not FI related, but the Beef And Dairy Network podcast is absolutely hilarious. If you like British comedy give it a try.

Pod Save America - twice weekly, about 60-90 minutes per episode.  It keeps me sane in this insane (political) world.

Quote
Sword and Scale

I used to be into S&S until I saw things surface about the host (Mike) being a creep and harassing people online.  He got arrested for DUI, too.  So I stopped listening in part because of that, and in part because he seems to have no empathy for mental illness but would rather portray those people as "monsters."  Just an fyi on the creep/harassment thing if that factors into your listening choices.

Waiting until "Convicted" wraps up so I can binge on that podcast (another true crime case).

My favorite podcast changes every once in a while, but since I can only pick one, the one I almost never miss is Pod Save America. I second DarkandStormy's comments about it. It's hosted by guys who worked in the Obama White House and they are smart and funny and interview interesting people. They drop the f-bomb a lot, which always get you on my good side, but they actually know what they're talking about as well. I think it usually comes in at under an hour and comes out twice a week. Crooked Media produces it and there are other associated podcasts to check out too (Pod Save the People especially which is more about race and social justice issues). 

Every time one of these threads comes up I subscribe to more podcasts! I'm going to have to purge--my Podkicker is getting too confusing.

Pod Save the World - foreign affairs, international relations
Pod Save the People - like you mentioned, geared more to racial and s.j. issues
With Friends Like These - "Ana Marie Cox, political columnist and culture critic, sits down with liberals and conservatives, pastors, writers, activists, and other people you should know for an open, funny, in-depth conversation about what divides us - a show about listening instead of arguing."
Lovett or Leave It - "Jon Lovett, former Obama speechwriter and co-host of Pod Save America, is joined by comedians, actors, journalists, and many, many renowned Friends of the Pod for a roundup of the week's top news. Rants! Games! Bad impressions! Nuanced discussion! Recorded in front of a live audience."

In the health arena, I listen to Robb Wolf's Podcast (Paleo Solution) as he has branched out quite a bit and doesn't just cover paleo. Also like Dr. Rhonda Patrick's blog.

Yes!  You and I would be buddies IRL.  Everyone I've met that listens to JRE is right up my alley.
I've actually gotten into BJJ, archery because of him, as well as the physical fitness aspects.

The psychedelics I'm holding off on...

Fave recent ones were Neil deGrasse Tyson and Josh Barnett.
