View Full Version : PodCasts

Just thought I would try and pick your brains for some good PodCasts. Right now I listen to Hardcore History by Dan Carlin (BEST history podcast, really enjoyable). Common Sense by Dan Carlin, and The Bitterest Pill by Dan Klass. I'm used to listen to some tech pod casts, and some music ones, but they get dull and repetitive after a while.

What else can you guys suggest?

Thanks guys, I have subscribed to all of them. I recently started working on a new project that puts me sitting in the middle of a huge cube farm. Some of the people are loud and obnoxious, but since I'm a contractor I can't complain. Thus I'm listening to podcasts to tune them out. :D

This American Life, another great podcast, I forgot about that one. :D

If you like TAL, you'll definitely like RadioLab. Their show is very similar, but they have their own style. They have a bunch of short (15-20 minute) shows, but I recommend starting with a few of their full-length (@ an hour) shows.
