Recommend a Podcast

So... basically I've started getting into podcasts, admittedly a wee bit on the late side.

My two faves just now are Gilbert Gottfrieds Podcast; Put Your Hands Together (stand up podcast) and Wham Bam Pow (movie podcast).

Anyone got any suggestions for some other ones to add to my collection?

Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to Nightvale is awesome. It's basically a stream of consciousness about a town that has a lot of weird things happen.

      This sounds like such an interesting concept, I'll look it up!

      Ahhhhh I was just about to say this. Nightvale is wicked, I love it.

      I was just about to recommend this myself!

      Nightvale is indeed awesome. It's like listening to a news report from the Twilight Zone.

    Oh my god, Radiolab. Great entertaining stories and just all around amazing.

    It's hard to recommend stuff without knowing your tastes, but let me give you five from my huge podcast collection to get you started:

    1. A Way With Words: Do you like language, the history it carries with it, and its place in culture? This is the podcast for you!

    2. Cox & Crendor In The Morning: A somewhat risky suggestion; this is a fake morning show run by two fantastic idiots. Often hilarious, I suggest listening through the archives. I imagine this will be the most polarizing of my suggestions.

    3. Hello Internet: A masterpiece of the 'two guys talking' genre. The cool thing is that both of these guys are super smart and in the same business (educational YouTube videos), but both are so diametrically different in their approaches to their work and the world around them.

    4. How To Do Everything: NPR's comedy take on an advice show. Mike and Ian (of the amazing Wait Wait Don't Tell Me) investigate questions ranging from what to do if you are faced with a bear (advice that actually saved a listener) to finding the best public toilet in the world.

    5. Radiolab: My favorite podcast of all time. The topic for a given episode could sound like the least interesting thing imaginable, yet, by the end of the episode, I'll find that topic amazing. This show is really about finding the wonder of our world, something we all need a reminder of from time to time.

    I've got many more good suggestions on many topics, just let us know your interests!

    Harmontown is a personal favorite. It's often funny, sometimes introspective and thoughtful. The stuff that Dan Harmon and his friends seem to come up with on the fly is amazing.

    Do you like Playstation?

      I do actually. Just got one in the past two / three months.

        Podcast Beyond! Here's a link to a snap I just published about them! This is my favorite podcast right now. I feel like I know the hosts personally, they make me laugh, and they keep my temper under control while driving on Northern California's freeways. Enjoy! Let me know how you like it!

          Cheers! I'll give that one a listen tomorrow!
