Didn't see a dedicated topic to it. When i ride/workout, i usually listen to podcasts. What are your favorites?

Mine:
Joe Rogan Experience is probably my favorite - Good, long podcasts.
Your Mom's House w/ Tom Segura & wife - Hilarious conversation.
Sam Harris - Interesting controversial conversation.
Church of What's Happening Now w/ Joey Diaz - Really funny and tells great stories.

My all-time favorite, hands down, probably never to be surpassed was The Thrilling Adventure Hour. Hilarious comedy sketches, a perfect homage to old time radio. Best recurring sketches were Beyond Belief with the delightful Paget Brewster and Paul F. Tompkins, channeling The Thin Man and similar witty dialog comedies; and Sparks Nevada with Marc Evan Jackson, a Western style adventure set on Mars. It's officially ended, with the final episodes (recorded live performances) just released. But the archives are well worth a listen. It's the sort of show that has diehard fans quoting lines like those annoying fans of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Except nobody gets it other than fans of the podcast.

My next favorite for years has been RadioLab, especially the episodes with complex sound design as influenced by co-host Jad Abumrad, who brings a musician's sensibility to the sound of a podcast. Most folks won't notice the elaborate sound design unless they're musicians, foley artists or have otherwise worked with sound on music, video, etc.

Some Assembly Required -- Also for fans of sound, the remix and appropriation culture, culture jamming and audio anarchy. The long running podcast ended a few years ago but the archives remain available and are gold for anyone interested in audio anarchy.

Others I enjoy, in no particular order of preference:
  • Serial, especially season 2 that delves into the case of Bowe Bergdahl. (The podcast changed my mind about Bergdahl, and I decided he should be pardoned or face only a reduced sentence. But listen to the entire season to understand why. It's too complex to summarize.)
  • Criminal
  • 99% Invisible -- makes infrastructure and the inanimate stuff of cities fascinating.

"Welcome to Nightvale" is always a fun one to listen to on long drives. Its similar to the 1938 telling of "War of the Worlds," this pod cast is an ongoing sometimes linear story about a tiny (made up) town in the Mojave Desert and the alien/magical/spooky events that transpire there.

The Sports Guy Podcast
Joe Rogan Experience
Chai Tea Party
Gilmour Guys
Soul Unexpected - just downloaded recently, it's pretty good

All of them are good though, no preference . . . they are all long though, at least 40 minutes so devote some time to it

Yessss to all the Radiolab recommendations. I'll share the not embarrassing ones in my feed that I haven't seen yet.

My Brother, My Brother and Me (comedy/weirdness) and also their D&D podcast called The Adventure Zone
Can He Do That? (Trump/politics)
Freakonomics (Life/finance) Yeah, I saw it somewhere else but it's one of my favorites
Indivisible (politics) [RIP]

And if you haven't heard it, yet. S-Town was captivating. Hard to talk about it without spoilers, but I found more than once that the room suddenly got a bit dusty and I had to wipe my eyes a bit.

^ There's a lot of stuff I listen to where I find myself repeatedly rewinding because I suddenly had to pay attention to real life.

I used to listen to SYSK but I couldn't get over the droll-ness of their voices. The content was pretty amazing at times and I tried to get past it, but couldn't.
