So I am a little late to the game. My buddy told me to check out the Joe Rogan podcast and so I did.
He had Neil Degrasse Tyson on and they talked for about two and a half hours about science and conspeiracies. I thoroughly enjoyed the structure of the interview since there was no structure at all. It was simply a conversation. Anyone have good podcasts they recommend?
Was thinking about starting this thread up again. This one is dated -- http://maryland.247sports.com/Board/56/The-independently-unofficial-podcast-thread-66911/1 -- but has some suggestions.
Since I started my new job (40-minute commute), I've gone with:
-- Men In Blazers (Grantland/soccer)
-- Hollywood Prospectus (Grantland/pop culture)
-- BS Report
-- Wait, Wait ... Don't Tell Me (NPR)
-- Stuff You Missed in History Class (howthingswork.com)
-- Hang Up and Listen (Slate/sports)
I'm all over the podcast scene. The Flop House is my current favorite pod, followed by Who Charted?
Comedy Bang Bang is probably the GOAT podcast.
Pod F. Tompkast if you enjoy insane genius things like I do.
Good episodes of the B.S. Report are good, bad ones are bad.
Doug Loves Movies is wholly dependent on the cast.
Sklarboro Country is good when it's a "County" episode.
Adam Carolla can be good when he's not talking about political things he's extremely uninformed about.
The Flop House is probably the best though.
The Dayn Perry episodes of Fangraphs Audio are the best thing on the internet. They're not always great, but when they're great, they're the best thing you'll ever listen to.
I listen to a lot of NPR podcasts: All Songs Considered, Fresh Air, On the Media, Here's the Thing (Alec Baldwin show that is awesome).
Andrew Zimmern: Go Fork Yourself
Tony Kornheiser Show (Day behind, but always good)
I listen to a ton of tech podcasts too.
As someone who travels a lot for work, and has quite a few 15 hour plane rides podcasts have become a huge asset. That and audiobooks from audible.com
Neil Degrasse Tyson has his own podcast, StarTalk Radio. Radiolab is another good sciencey podcast.
Other than some already mentioned in this thread, Nerdist is worth checking out. Chris Hardwick interviews people from different sides of the entertainment industry- actors, musicians, writers, scientists, comedians. It's just a free-flowing conversation, you get some GREAT stories out of it usually. It stays on the lighter side of things generally, rather than going into the WTF style of getting into their dark memories. I don't listen to every episode because he has so many people on there it would be tough to keep up, but I'll download the ones of people I'm interested in.
I had to turn of the Neil Degrasse Tyson / Joe Rogan thing last week when Joe Rogan of all people was trying to tell Neil Degrasse Tyson that the moon landing was faked.
I have about an hour between metro and walking to/from work 2x a day. i listen to podcasts. In no particular order
1. The Nerdist Podcast - Chris Hardwick...kind of depending on who he has on as a guest. The good shows can be really good. Off the top of my head, the Tom Hanks, Alton Brown, and Mel Brooks episodes were really good.
2. WTF Podcast - Marc Maron. Took a bit to get into, but he has good guests, usually in the comedy game, but sometimes other stuff as well. A lot of tell-me-your-life-story type of stuff. So, good stories from interesting people.
3. The Champs Yo! - Neal Brennan and Moshe Kasher - Neal co-created Chappelle's Show and Moshe is a comedian. Almost all of their guests are black comedians. Have they ever had a white guest? I don't think so. Consistently funny stuff.
4. This American Life
6. BS Report
7. ESPN Fantasy Focus Football/Baseball (depending on the season).
8. I loved the Up and In Podcast from BaseballProspectus until it died when Kevin Goldstein took a job with the Astros. Hoping Jason Parks does something of his own this season.
9. The Moth - interesting/funny/touching stories
10. I really only listen to Adam Corrola if the guest is someone I really want to hear.
One other way I find podcasts to listen to is I think about famous people who I find interesting and then google their name + podcast. Last week I listened to an interesting talk by Michael Lewis by doing that. It's also how I found The Champs.

No love for the Rob and Joe show? http://www.robandjoeshow.com/
Other than that, all I listen to is Adam Carolla.
Uhh, Yeah Dude
Jonathan and Seth discuss craigslist missed connections and romantic encounters
Im ready for aa 5th of vodica to end my feels.
Love a good pod.
The Crab Feast with Ryan Sickler and Jay Larson.
Both stand-up comedians out in LA but Sickler is originally from Baltimore. He tells countless stories of the shenanigans that him and his brothers got into while growing up poor in Bmore and the county. I've literally been driving and in tears laughing about some of the pranks they pulled. His accent is exactly what you'd expect too. Download the recent episode with Daryl Wright or Pete Holmes as the guest for some fun times.
Also Pete Holmes has his own podcast (he's the voice of the e-trade baby) called You Made It Weird. He pulls some decent guests too... Joel McHale, Todd Glass, Aziz Ansari and Zach Galifianakis over the past month or so if I'm not mistaken.
Mohr Stories with Jay Mohr is also not terrible if he has a decent guest.
nerdist, autoblog, pod f tompcast, doug loves movies (like stro says, depends on the guests), professor blastoff (sometimes), comedy film nerds, firewall & iceberg, espnu college football, this american life, nerdist writers panel, making it w/ riki lindhome, who charted, how did this get made, comedy bang bang

Phatboy if you had any balls I'd meet you at the AFA Boxing gym and have Coach Weichers put some gloves on us.
Love podcasts, i second the crab feast.
My favorite one is fitzdogradio w/ greg fitzsimmons. i also like jay mohr's sometimes too.
They come out less often but bryan callen's is always really really interesting. he is the guy from the chapel in the hangover but is very very smart and well read.
and you still probably dont get to hear much of him.
i still listen to carolla every day.
also npr live concerts. i don't really subscribe to that, though... i just wait for a concert i want to hear and download it. tons and tons of stuff.
Ones I regularly listen to:
You Made It Weird with Pete Holmes - part of the Nerdist network; a comedian (Pete Holmes) interviews other comedians about their careers, their love lives, and their viewpoints on religion. Usually very interesting stuff because he tries to get the guests to open up about things they might not usually talk about. I have really only listened to the ones with more famous people (Aziz Ansari, Adam Carolla, Nick Kroll, Joel McHale) but I would imagine they are all somewhat interesting.
The B.S. Report - like someone said above, can be really good depending on who he is talking to and what the subject is, but there are some that are kind of stinkers (usually the athletes)
The Comedy Film Nerds - Two guys talking about movies that were just released (along with guests involved in some form of entertainment - whether movies/writing/comedy, etc.), so I'll listen to their opinions on something I've seen.
Cashing in with T.J. Miller - Also part of Nerdist. T.J. Miller was a frequent guest on other podcasts like Doug Loves Movies, so I started listening to his own that he began with another comedian Cash Levy. This one is really great - it's like a PTI style comedy show, where they bring up these ridiculous questions, talk about them for 5 minutes, and then move on to the next topic.
Doug Love Movies - If there is a good cast
The Adam Carolla Show - Just occasionally though
By the way, does everyone else hate this shitty app that I had to start using when I upgraded my iphone OS? When it was part of itunes it was simple, intuitive, and works. This app is a f***ing mess. I hate it.
If she has a guest on you like, Alison Rosen is your new best friend finds out more about that person and where they came from than any other interviewer I've ever heard. Her last episode featured Rory Scovel who is a local comedian about to become huge.
o yes, i listen to her cast as well, and you are correct, although i think she is kind of a shitty interviewer, i do enjoy her.
their music stuff is great. the all songs episode of the 2012 wrapup was unreal.
Ha. I thought that was great.
Men In Blazers is ok but The Football Ramble destroys it. And for a straight news soccer pod Football Weekly is outstanding.
Thanks Sandlapper Spike for turning me on to them.
"The reality show show" talks about reality shows, has some good stuff on shows that are near and dear to my heart (the challenge, the bachelor, every reality show)
That would be like me lecturing Tom and HMPAOF on being attractive.
"And I try to har-mo-nize with songs the lonesome sparrow sings...
There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden."
Anyone who is interested in starting their own Podcast, would like a live element to it, and wants to avoid alot of the startup costs should PM me.
Please no sports or political shows, and no Tiffles. Thanks.
Adam Carolla Show - rants can be repetitive, but he still cracks me up now that he can be uncensored
Artie Lange Show - podcast version of his radio show, never listened to him on Stern, but Artie is hilarious when he berates his staff
BS Report - Good mix of sports and pop culture, find it easier to get past his pro-Boston bias
Adam and Drew Show - used to listen to Loveline on radio, this is basically a podcast version
Film Vault - film/movie discussion, can be hit or miss
Others I listen to depending on guest- Joe Rogan Experience, Jay Mohr, and Greg Fitzsimmons
Nick and Artie show, right? Directv has it on their Audience channel in the mornings, I think. I stumbled on it one day and, shocker, Artie was out sick.
