I figured this might be an interesting discussion, and a good way of finding new Podcasts to listen to. I'll get things started.

Podcasts I listen to consistently:

• Joe Rogan Experience - 830 episodes each up to around 3 hours long - I've listened to almost all of them haha. He has a wide range of guests, from mma fighters to astrophysicists.
• Fighter and the Kid - an ex UFC fighter and his comedian friend. It used to be a great podcast, but it's gone downhill a bit. Definitely won't be for everyone.
• This American Life - you can only listen the latest podcasts through iTunes etc., but they have hundreds.
- my favourite episode - Dr Gilmer and Mr. Hyde
• Serial - amazing first season, I was hooked! Second season wasn't quite as gripping.
• The Infinite Monkey Cage - science podcast with a comedic twist

Podcasts I listen to occasionally:

• Radiolab
• Stuff you should know
• WTF with Marc Maron
• The Nerdist
• Waking Up with Sam Harris

The Talk Show
Apple-centric podcast with John Gruber of Daring Fireball.

Sceptic and atheist podcast. Really bad language. Seriously, terrible language. Not for the faint hearted!

Surprisingly Awesome
Periodic podcast about something that sounds boring but is actually interesting.

Robot or Not
John Siracusa and Jason Snell discuss whether "x" is a robot or not. Short, under 5 mins each.

Still Untitled, the Adam Savage Project

Cheap Astronomy
Aussie Steve Nerlich discusses astronomy topics with good accessible language. Funny guy.

Cheers,
Joseph

Maaaan, screw you guys.  I hate finding new podcasts because I feel like I'm suddenly behind and have to binge all episodes from the start to get all the inside jokes!

 

Business Related:

 

- Sean Wes Podcast (Seanwes Network)
- Lambo Goal Podcast (Seanwes Network)
- How to Start a Startup (Great podcast series, also on YouTube)

 

Non Business related:

 

- The Dollop  (Only listened to a couple of episodes, but I flipping pissed myself on the ones I listened to.  Highly recommend the episode: The Willie Dee)
- The WAN Show (Mainly just listen on YouTube, Linus Media Group does it)






Sometimes what you don't get is a blessing in disguise!

Diane Rehm Show's Friday News Roundup on NPR - both international and US hours provide a good summary and critical analysis of the events over the previous week (https://thedianerehmshow.org/rss/npr/dr_podcast.xml/)

 

Serial, as mentioned above (I liked both series, buy agreed the first was more gripping).

 

Almost all the rest of my podcasting are RNZ National podcasts - listening to these at 1.5x speed while running or exercising is how I keep up-to-date! (Essentials for me are Media Watch, film reviews with Simon Morris, and many from Nine to Noon including the Monday politics slot, the parenting slot etc.) That said, I'll check out some of those listed here, as a bit of variety's always good...

And for the fans of Serial season one, what do you think - Adnan guilty or not?

 

My view. It's a tough one as to whether there was sufficient evidence to convict beyond a reasonable doubt - however, on the evidence presented, and on a balance of probabilities, I reckon he did it.

I've come to the exact same conclusion.

 

If you haven't watched Making a Murderer, I suggest you do. Also, check out Dr Gilmer and Mr. Hyde, it is a This American Life episode by Sarah Koenig. It has a similar vibe to Serial.

Hello to Jason Isaacks cool

 

 

Or is it Jason Isaacs? Let us not forget Fairport Convention, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen, Noby Jones (or is it Toby Jones?) but not Mark Strong (amongst others).

 

+1 for Infinite Monkey Cage

 

And who can go past Geoffrey on TMS...?

Simon Morris' approach to reviewing a film often sees him outlining the entire plot, pretty much in sequential order. For me, I don't want to know too much about the plot in advance of seeing a movie, so I now steer clear of listening to his reviews.

 

Mark Kermode (Podcast: Kermode & Mayo's Film Review) is very careful not to give too much away in terms of plot, so is my favoured - and recommended - weekly podcast for movies.

RNZ programs, such as Mediawatch, this way up, the panel, and Checkpoint. For some tech podcast I listen to them at 1.5 speed and also set it to remove any gaps.

Can't recommend this social and political commentary podcast highly enough. Last week, there was a very interesting opinion piece on Brexit. The week before, an in-depth commentary observing an autopsy.

 

But for the geekzoners, check out The Satoshi Affair - 30 June 2016 "Andrew O'Hagan watches Craig Wright show Gavin Anderson, one of the most respected bitcoin developers, that he holds the Satoshi key.

 

Also, it's still on the website, from March 2014, this is a fascinating listen: Andrew O’Hagan spent six months with Julian Assange helping him write his autobiography, though in the event Assange didn’t want the book published. O’Hagan speaks about those six months for the first time.
