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.

Another Dan Carlin "Hardcore History" fan.  They only come out every few months but they are long 2+ hour podcasts.

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.

Great.  Thanks.  Never heard of it and will check it out.

Thanks.  Probably too long for my liking.

A German podcast that reads the news slowly. It's great for my level of German!

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.
