What are you listening to? Podcasts
« on: November 01, 2019, 11:32:18 AM »
We have a what are you watching thread.  Figured I'd start a what are you listening to?  Mainly for podcasts as we've had other threads about music, but I suppose music could be in here too.

Podcasts that I've listened to for a couple years and still subscribe to:
Pardon My Take
CBS Sports Eye on College Basketball
The Lowe Post
Scrambled Eggs
Real Chilly Podcast
One Shining Podcast
30 for 30 Podcasts
The Sideline with Evan Daniels

New listens for me:
Serial - Heard season 1 was great and that season 2 started slow so people quit on it.  I gave season 1 a listen, thought it was just okay.  Didn't start season 2.
Up and Vanquished - heard a random episode of it on a car ride with my brother and his wife.  Find it more interesting than Serial so far, just started it though.
Atlanta Monster - haven't started it yet, but produced by the same guy that does Up and Vanquished
Black Lives Matter

I listen to a lot of podcasts with quite a bit of variety.  Here are a few that are currently in my rotation:

  • Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend - longish interviews by O'Brien and other celebs (typically in comedy)
  • The Way I Heard It* - think Paul Harvey, "The Rest of the Story."  Mike Rowe is a freaking national treasure.
  • Ball and Chain - Steve Rushin and Rebecca Lobo; really just a discussion of married life and raising kids; for some reason I enjoy it, but suspect that most people wouldn't
  • Ear Hustle - recorded in San Quentin prison about life in prison
  • Hey Do You Remember - cheesy podcast re-watching and discussing 80s/90s movies
  • TED Radio Hour
  • The Good Place Podcast - if you like the show, you'll probably like this; also interesting because it gives some good insights into how episodic television gets made

And there are many, many more that have come and gone over the last few years.


*Yesterday, for Halloween, Rowe did a reading of The Tell-Tale Heart.  It was outstanding.  Totally not representative of what is usually on The Way I Heard It, but really good.

The City, Season 2


My first podcast (that I've subscribed) ever.
Wow, I'm very concerned for Benny.  Being able to mimic Myron Medcalf's writing so closely implies an oncoming case of dementia.

I like true crime, business, philosophy, learning, and have a guilty pleasure.

Serial
Cold
Dr Death
In the Dark
Broken Hearts
Happy Face
Household Names
The Pitch
Business Wars
Freakanomics
TED
SYSK
Radiolab
Philosophize This
On Being
Invisibilia
Making Sense
Revisionist History
Broken Record
Against The Rules

I love Bob Schneider, one of my favorite musicians and songwriters. His podcast is I’m OK, You’re OK, I’m Not OK, You’re Not OK. It’s funny, cringeworthy, deep and shallow all in thirty minutes.

Another I recently enjoyed was A Very Fatal Murder.  It's done by The Onion, and it's skewering the true crime genre (which I really enjoy).  There were quite a few times I truly and literally did "LOL."  It drags here and there, but overall, I really enjoyed it.  Also, it's not too long (probably not much more than 90 minutes total), so it's easy to blow through the whole thing pretty quickly.

Also, don't skip the commercials.  The one for USPS in the final episode nearly caused a spit-take.

The 30 for 30 series on Donald Sterling was well done and eye opening.

If you were a diehard Office, Jenna Fisher (Pam) and Angela Kinsey (Angela) are on the third season episode of their new podcast, Office Girls. They are breaking down every episode from the show one by one.

This here's a good thread. 

Request for recommendations: I was late to the game on Dan Carlin's Hardcore History, which was great because there was so much to binge. But I've worked my way through those with embarassing speed. What should I turn to now?

Hardcore history
Revisionist history
Joe Rogan experience - I was astounded at how good of a casual interviewer Joe is. Compared to his jock/outlandish persona at ringside/doing standup


I'll definitely look into that office podcast - thanks!

Anyone have suggestions on good podcast platforms? Currently using Google music - it's "eh"

Joe Rogan


I really like Rogan's podcast.  I used to listen to it a lot more, but he's so damn prolific I stopped subscribing -- he kept filling up my queue.  On a fairly regular basis  I skim through his recent episodes and listen to any that sound interesting.

Although Rogan is probably my favorite of the long-form interviewers I've also enjoyed Penn Jillette, Marc Maron, Chris Hardwick and Pete Holmes.  I generally treat them the same as Rogan -- not subscribed, but revisit them to see if they talked to anyone interesting.

Am I the only one who listens to podcasts on 2x speed?

There are some podcasts that I listen at normal speed -- primarily fiction where there is an actual performance going on -- but I listen to almost everything sped up.  I've grown so accustomed to 2x that even dropping down to 1.5x makes it seem "normal" to me (for those that tend to be a little too fast at 2x).

A separate post about fiction podcasts.  They're hit and miss.  I must admit that I get really annoyed when I'm several hours into a fiction podcast and start to lose interest but feel invested and determined to finish.  But that's happened several times.

My favorites were probably Homecoming and Limetown. 

Others that I've listened to that come to mind are The Black Tapes; The Walk; We're Alive; Steal the Stars; Alice Isn't Dead; Sandra.  I recently listened to one called Blackout that had an interesting premise and great cast (including Rami Malek), but could not believe they didn't make a second season.  I couldn't help but wonder if Malek's Oscar made him less interested in continuing with a podcast.


Does anyone else do fiction?  Any recommendations?

This was an outstanding podcast produced by the BBC about the moon landing.  I recommend it very highly.


Sorry to spam the thread.  I'll go away now.

I still listen at regular speed. 1.5 feels fast, though I adapt to it. I find that I really don't like the increased speed for things that make me laugh. 2x seems crazy. I wish there was a 1.25x option, because I do find the value in increasing the speed, but even 1.5 doesn't really allow any time for the hosts to breathe.

use pocketcasts as your pod catcher. you can listen at .1x increments. i listen at 1.4x but it allows you get used to speeds.

I use pocketcasts too.  For purely talk stuff I generally default to 2x, but I do like that if something is going a little quick I can drop it down at .1x increments until it is comfortable.  I usually don't go below 1.5x unless it's something that, for some reason, I like listening to at normal speed.

EconTalk

Usually a great podcast (though recently I haven't really had an opportunity to listen to it).  Russ Roberts, retired economics professor from George Mason University, is the host.  He's a bit too libertarian for my taste, but nonetheless, he's a great host, who is fair, and tries to be objective.  He often has guests from various subfields of economics and various political stripes.  For example, he had Glen Weyl on there somewhat recently, an economist who has certain policy prescriptions that Libertarians would find anathema.

The guests aren't limited to economics.  He also has guests from the blogosphere, policy circles, and entrepreneurs, e.g., the creators of LinkedIn.  I first learned about Bitcoin and Uber on his podcast.

Not podcasts, but I watch everything at 1.7x .. This is a fantastic extension for chrome .. nearly all video can be sped up:

It also can skip +10 seconds with a keystroke, which is fantastic for all adverts.

I forgot one that I have been enjoying--

Friendly Fire - once a week, 3 guys watch a war movie and discuss it.  Good mix of history, warfare and movie knowledge on the panel, and the 3 of them have good chemistry.  They tell you in the show (and notes) what the next movie will be, so you can watch in advance (of course, you always can with a podcast, so...).  They have 200 plus movies on the list, and randomly select the next one at the end of the pod (except when they will opt out if the random selection is the third in a row from the same war).  Not all are traditionally considered war movies.

So, anything from Lebanon, Zero Dark Thirty, The Mouse That Roared, Hacksaw Ridge, The African Queen, Dr. Strangelove, Glory , Force 10 from Naverone, Dirty Dozen, Enemy at the Gates, Stalag 17 to Master and Commander etc

For those that are fans of increasing the listening speed and are on iOS you should check out Overcast.  It has the same speed up options as the others out there but also has a "smart speed" feature which will dynamically go like +/- 0.5 speed depending on how fast the speaker is talking.  So as an example if you normally listen to 1.5 speed it may go down closer to 1.0 speed when there is a conversation going on but then up to 2.0 speed when there are long pauses between words. 

It sounds more obtrusive than it really is, plus it keeps track of how much extra time it has saved you over just doing 1.5x alone.  I think I've been using it for almost 3 years and the smart speed feature has allowed me to listen to 170 hours of extra content over a flat speed increase.  Kind of crazy to think about!

Me.  Every day I drive to and from work. Depending on traffic, that’s roughly 45-75 minutes each day. Add in lunch and regular errands, and I’m probably listening to podcasts in the car about 6-8 hours in a normal week.  And if I drive for work - a relatively common occurrence, that increases significantly.  If I’m alone in the car, I’m almost always listening to a podcast...instead of the radio. And on weekends I often hike for a couple hours each day. It adds up.

Those were enjoyable.  \

Also, "Jesuitical" is a kind of fun and informal podcast hosted by 20-somethings (non priests) who work at America magazine/for the Jesuits. 

And Fr. James Martin does a daily Examen podcast that is 15 to 20 minutes long.  A nice way to end or begin the day.

Ah yes.  My drive to work is 5 mins.  I don't spend a lot of time in the car and when I do I usually listen to music.  Years ago I used to listen to talk shows, but it is hard to work and listen so for me the medium of a podcast just does not work.

For probably two years, pretty much every time I’ve googled “best fiction podcasts” I’ve seen Welcome to Night Vale on the list. The description never really appealed to me, so I never listened. I went through the process again yesterday in advance of a drive to Michigan and finally decided, “what the hell.”

Wow. That’s a very unique, strange podcast. I liked it. It’s funny. Strange. I listened to the trailer and it starts by saying, “want to jump into Night Vale but a little freaked out by the fact that we have over 100 episodes...” which was actually one of the things that had been holding me back. Short answer, it doesn’t matter. It’s not really exactly sequential. Did I mention it’s strange?

I’m not going to just binge 200 episodes, but I’ll definitely add it to the rotation. At least until I get tired of it. I listened to 20 episodes over the eight hours of driving.

As far as fiction podcasts, I greatly enjoyed the two seasons of the Wolverine podcast (The Long Night and The Lost Trail). If you're into the survival horror genre, The White Vault is also worth a listen.

I've taken a deep dive into the Pushkin Industries podcasts. That's Malcolm gladwells company (revisionist history podcast). Against the rules (by moneyball author Michael Lewis), cautionary tales, solvable, the happiness lab. All good

Business Wars
Armchair Expert
Economist Editor's Picks
Fresh Air
FT News Briefing

Podcasts (at least for now) allow the funniest people on earth an opportunity to create and distribute the best content. Way more than stand up and way more than any other form of traditional media. Why watch a show or movie that is stripped of its soul when you can get the source unfiltered?

As for politics, I need more than just basic talking points. I think the shows listed below have the most interesting guests and discussions.

Comedy
History Hyenas
The Tim Dillon Show (formerly Tim Dillon is Going to Hell)
Kill Tony
Legion of Skanks
2 Bears 1 Cave
Cum Town
Jeremiah Wonders
Bertcasts's Podcast
Fitzdog Radio

Politics
Part of the Problem
Your Welcome
The Fifth Column
The Tom Woods Show
The Scott Horton Show
The Reason Roundtable

All the news pods I listen to are on hiatus for the holidays so I started some narrative fiction podcasts. Limetown, Passenger List, & The Bright Sessions so far. All good, though hoping they don't all end on cliffhangers.

Zach Lowe’s most recent guest on his podcast “The Lowe Post” was Steven Adams. Very, very entertaining. The New Zealand accent and just the different phrases he uses alone make listening to him entertaining. He had some pretty funny stories on top of it and also has an interesting upbringing.

I’d definitely recommend giving it a listen if you have 45 minutes to kill.

Pretty great Anonymous Eagle podcast out today with Charlie Pierce- reminiscing about the 70's teams (he is class of '75) and how they were a reflection of the student body.   Interesting takes on Crean and the course of the program since the halcyon days.

Just binged the Wind of Change podcast. It's about a story that comes out of Langley saying the CIA wrote the Scorpions ballad Wind of Change, which reached #1 and is the 13th biggest single in world history, to bring about the end of Communism and the Cold War. Starts with the story and continues to talk about how the CIA used different forms of music and entertainment to work influence operations and culminates with the host interviewing Klaus Meine, lead singer of the Scorpions, who claims he wrote the song after a music festival in Moscow right before the fall of the Berlin Wall. Really good and interesting pod that raises questions about espionage, conspiracy theories, and the truth behind it all.

Has anyone listened to "The Dream"? It's about MLMs/pyramid schemes/direct sales.

No surprise, but the amount of interaction between the highest levels of federal government and these fraudulent companies is staggering.

New fiction recommendation:  Wooden Overcoats. Silly British humor and very clever. Well produced.

Bumping this.  Have a 7 hour car ride this afternoon and just caught up on all my podcasts.  Any good ones people have recently listened to?  I mostly listen to sports podcasts and a couple murder mystery ones (Up and Vanished was my favorite so far).

I absolutely love anything done by chef David Chang. I listen to his podcast “The Dave Chang Show” regularly. He is so smart. Other food and food culture shows I listen to are “Proof” and “The Sporkful.” My other always up to date is “I’m Okay You’re Okay I’m Not Okay You’re Not Okay” with Bob Schneider and Clint Wells. Bob Schneider is one of my most favorite song writers, and he is creative, funny, cringy, thought provoking. It’s mostly light.

Non-food, I love “Gangster Capitalism,” I really got into “Louder Than A Riot,” of course “Revisionist History,” “The Pitch, “In the Dark,” “More Perfect,” “Opening Arguments,” “Philosophize This,” “Reply All,” “Radiolab,” “The Argument,” “Broken Record,” “Code Switch,” “Decoder Ring,” “Invisibilia,” “The Skeptics Guide to the Universe,” “The Stoop,” “You Are Not So Smart.”

I like crime podcasts, too, so “Serial,” “Cold,” “Broken Harts.” And, I’ve listened to several business ones from Wondery. I like quick hitters like “Daily Stoic” and daily ones from NPR, too like “Planet Money.” So many.

A few on my list that I haven’t listened to yet are “Slow Burn,” “Uniquely Milwaukee,” “World’s Greatest Con,” “Stuff the British Stole,” “The Just Enough Family,” “Swindled,” “Stuff To Blow Your Mind,” “Still Processing.” I have a bunch more in the library.

The only thing I've seen David Chang on is Who Wants to be a Millionaire when he won the million dollars for his charity.  He seemed like a really cool guy, so maybe his podcast will be the one I listen to on the way home.  Thanks!

You bet! He’s more than “just a chef” as he is part of Acre Venture Partners, has several restaurants, a food company Mokofuku, a media company Majordomo Media, a Discord community, and TV shows on Netflix and Hulu and is making more. He is smart, forward thinking, and honest. He also has another podcast called “Recipe Club.”

I'm sure anyone who listened to Serial already knows that Adnan Seyed was released from prison yesterday after having his conviction thrown out.  He was not exonerated, though.  It's pretty crazy how mishandled the case was originally, given the reasons for throwing out his conviction.  It will be interesting to see if he will be retried (sounds like no) or if either of the two other suspects end up getting arrested down the line.  I believe he had the conviction overturned twice before as well, but was retried and never left prison.

For those who listened to the podcast, don't remember all the details, but don't want to relisten to the whole podcast, I found an HBO documentary on HBO Max that does a good job of recapping everything.  It's called The Case Against Adnan Seyed from 2019 and brings up the information that did wind up getting his conviction thrown out yesterday.
