Just started listening to Dan Carlin's Hardcore History Blueprint for Armageddon I. It's about WWI, its lead up and how warfare had changed in the 99 yrs since the previous wars involving the worlds major powers (Napoleonic wars). Pretty fascinating stuff.

Missing Richard Simmons was better than I'd expected, mostly for the wrong reasons. In part it's an example of how *not* to do a journalistic podcast. The creator/producer/investigator is too personally invested, asks the wrong questions, fails to ask the right questions, yet somehow manages to make it compelling. In the end it's a lesson in the burden of celebrity. Worth a listen for that reason alone.

I used to be a big fan of late night take shows and radio broadcast. Once that went out of favor I never really expanded to podcasts. I do watch Rogan's youtube vids every now and then but I think I grew out of it. I do still learn a great deal from the guest's specialty knowledge.

Just stumbled onto this thread. I really enjoy listening to podcasts during my commute and I'm a "rain or shine" kinda guy, so I listen to a lot of podcasts. I have little tolerance for amateurish production values or low quality subjects. Here's my current list -

This American Life - What can be said about TAL that hasn't already be said. Simply the best of the best. Three stories on a theme, excellent production quality, really sets the podcast bar.

Snap Judgement - Think TAL with an urban vibe. Produced locally with very high quality and interesting subjects. Great bumper music beats.

RadioLab - Nourishment for an info junkies soul. Clever, interesting, thought provoking. Never a dull subject.

Reply All - "A podcast about the internet..." An internet based look at modern society, hosted by a couple of good guys.

Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me! - Comedy quiz/game show focused on current events. Light, funny, a great mental diversion.

99% Invisible - A look at the invisible forces that affect our lives. Design, architecture and more. Produced here in Oakland.

Freakonomics Radio - An exploration of social, behavioral, micro and macro economics that affect our world. Interesting and informative.

The Daily - A New York Times podcast. Current news and events. (Sometimes a little too heavy on the emotional drama for my taste)

Embedded - Take a news story and dig deeper. Do they go deep enough? Not always.

Decoder Ring - Cultural issues; what they mean and why they matter. They're new at this but so far, so good.

Heavyweight - Jonathan Goldman's wry sense of humor flavors stories of people getting the chance for a "do over."

Rough Translation - How the news and current events we're talking about here are being talked about elsewhere in the world. It's not always about us.

Sometimes Joe is spot on, other times he's in left field. I don't listen to anything when I go riding. I prefer to see stuff. Besides, there's just to many hazards to risk the distraction in the big city. Maybe if I were riding on a closed-course?

No...never listen to anything while riding. I don't understand how anyone could ride on road and feel safe while doing so?

I listened to that over the summer and was fascinated by it. The whole series is over a days worth of shows and I tried to make sure I could make it to the end of an episode to avoid loosing my place on the lousy MP3 player I used when listening to it.

That's where your choice of music comes in. You choose "riding" music something where you won't get to engaged. I have a transistor radio but have yet to ever use it. Wired headphones are illegal, and so would add an extra level of difficulty in proving innocence in the event of a traffic mishap.

I've made it through Episode IV so far. It's fascinating, although his descriptions of the carnage during trench warfare at Verdun and the Somme gets a bit nauseating at times.

Yeah, it's pretty graphic. I listened to most of it sitting on the couch by my cat. She could tell I was reacting to something bad even if she didn't know exactly what I was reacting to.

That was a lot of sitting for you and kitty. The posters here piqued my interest in these podcasts about WW1 so I went to the Dan Carlin site and downloaded the six episodes of Blueprint for Armageddon; 1.24 GB and 23:06:50 length. I will probably listen to them on a long cross country drive.

I've been to Verdun. The battlefield is more cratered (from artillery) than the Moon; there isn't 3 feet of level ground anywhere. The Douaumont Ossuary at Verdun holds the remains of more than 130,000 unknown French and German soldiers from the WWI battle in Verdun. Visitors can see the massive pile of bones inside through exterior windows on the structure.

I'm not surprised from his description of the effects of the artillery there - craters, blood, guts, excrement, gas, etc. Just a massive bloodbath.

this right here is a ****ing masterpiece of historical analysis and storytelling. everyone should give at least one episode a listen.

also seconding 99% invisible from a few posts back

and also on my list:

last podcast on the left - true crime and paranormal the guys behind it are really funny
imaginary worlds analysis and history of various forms of fiction
lore - slightly odd history/stories

@atsui what BBC podcasts are you listening to?


My most recent find? Business Wars. All about competition between business titans. Think McDonald's vs Burger, Hasbro vs Matel, etc. Very interesting listening.
