I think there is a similar thread on here somewhere - but instead of fishing around for it:

1. Hidden Brain
2. Revisionist History (Malcolm Gladwell)
3. Planet Money

All are NPR programs.

Iím trying My Favorite Murder, but I find the banter too long, distracting, and irritating. But I havenít tuned into their sense golf humor yet. Right now Iím not going to bother to learn to like them. YMMV.


Agree with Radiolab mentioned above.

I like Joe too, but amusingly I don't give half a crap about his MMA podcasts, which filters out about half of them. :P

Agree with Rogan, I think he might be the best modern interviewer.  If you can put up with his pseudo intellectual side, he can have some great conversations.

Another vote for the Art of Manliness.  The ultimate in non-toxic masculinity.

A couple other NPR ones that I've enjoyed:
- More Perfect (about the Supreme Court)
- The Uncertain Hour (stories from the Marketplace Wealth and Poverty Desk)

Others I've enjoyed:
- Dirty John (binged this one)
- The Numberphile Podcast (this one is just getting started but I like it so far - I guess he has a YouTube channel and is exploring the content in podcast form; math topics)

The Complete Guide to Everything: You'll learn nothing from these two but their nonsense will have you laughing so hard you'll cry.

Wodcast Podcast: Very loosely based around fitness. Probably not your cup of tea if your not but it's my once a week must listen-to podcast. It was a little better before it was just Eddie.
