Podcasts

I just got a cushy office job, and I have 9 hours a day to kill in front of a computer. Looking to get into some great podcasts, what are some of the podcasts that you guys like to listen to? any cool websites with a bunch of podcasts?

    Re: Podcasts

    Av Club has a good run down of a lot of them and streams them as well. I listen to a ton. Here are mine (Top are my faves):

    Comedy Bang Bang
    This American Life
    NPR Fresh Air
    Improv 4 Humans
    Stuff To Blow Your Mind
    The Moth
    WTF With Marc Maron
    The Thrilling Adventure Hour
    NPR Planet Money
    StarTalk Radio with Neil deGrasse Tyson
    Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me
    The Economist
    Bob & Brian in the Morning
    Freakanomics
    Moyers & Company
    The World Next Week (Council of Foreign Relations)
    Stuff You Missed in History Class
    Council of Foreign Relations Events

    I think that's all of mine. Highly recommend those first three above all else. Comedy Bang Bang takes a few episodes to get the inside jokes, but it is the best.

    Comedy Bang Bang is such an hilarious format, once you learn all the characters history, its get infinitely more funny. Paul F Tompkins is amazing in that show, as is nick kroll.

    If you don't listen to the Pod F. Tompkast you should. It's the characters that PFT uses on Comedy Bang Bang and others and it's hilarious.

    WTF
    Comedy Bang Bang
    Doug Loves Movies
    This American Life
    Mental Illness Happy Hour
    This Feels Terrible
    Dining With Doug and Karen
    You Made it Weird with Pete Holmes
    Harmontown
    How Did This Get Made?
    Analyzing Phish/Fish
    Sklarboro Country
    His and Hers Podcast
    The Evening Jones
    Hollywood Prospectus
    Call Chelsea Peretti
    Who Charted
    By The Way: In Conversation with Jeff Garlin
    The Duncan Trussell Family Hour
    The Nerdist
    The Todd Glass Show

    I listen to podcasts more than I do music these days.

    The Adam Carolla app is great. Dr. Drew and Adam just started doing a 3 day a week podcast and its gold.

    Re: Podcasts

    Womp it up!

    Jessica St. Clair is my favorite guest simply for that character. Tompkins owns. Adomian is right behind him.

    If you're looking to get into Comedy Bang Bang, look to the Best of 2012 episodes. Also they're doing videocasts now. Check out the video Podcast Network to see two of the more recent episodes. The Jon Daly's Bill Cosby-Bukowski is a must watch just to see how crazy he looks.

    I just subscribed to Paul F. Tompkast, but those come out few and far between, so I'm hoping to dive into the old episodes soon. Forgot I listen to Harmontown as well, but when he is on tour and releasing every show I decided not to listen. His podcasts get too long (even when put on double speed), but I can listen to them weekly. When he would release one a day I just said "Fuck this".

    Oh yeah, I listen to Jeff Garlin's new podcast as well even though he is super annoying, he does have some great guests. I'm sure I'll skip some guests that I have never heardabout, like I sometimes do for Maron.

    Looking at the above list I totally forgot "How Did This Get Made?" Mantzoukas is the best, and it is a hilarious listen for movie fans. Not a huge fan of Benson's podcast unless he has a great line-up.

    Haha did you listen to Wompler's own podcast with Mrs. Lisler/Gutterballs around the holidays? That pair is your right, probably the best.

    Also, listen to Tomkast oldest to newest, as it has a story line.

    Yeah that's why I haven't dived into Tomkast completely yet.

    The Holiday Womp It Up special was so good.

    The episode with Wompler/Rust/Jerrod Carmichael is probably my favorite from last year and maybe the first where the shows completely clicked for me (I had only just started listening a few weeks before).

    Bill Burr's Monday Morning Podcast needs more love. One of the funniest narratives ever, esp if you like sports/betting.

    there are certain things that some of the regulars (Paul F. Tompkins, James Adomian... those are the only two I can think of) on the show have recurring characters and they have stories that are developed on each episode they're on, so if you're that interested, you might want to start from the beginning. Plus, it's cool to see the evolution of the show. I'm a nerd.

    Re: Podcasts

    Not necessary to start from the beginning, especially because there are so many. I'd do what I'm doing know, which is subscribing (and thus getting them bi-weekly at the moment) and seeing if you like the show and getting used to the format. Then when you have time go back to the beginning. You'll never be completely lost in any given episode, but you will miss some inside jokes. Aukerman is one of the best hosts and almost directs the chaos, so whenever there is a major callback he'll suually give a quick aside to explain that it happened previously.

    Also the show kinda blew for the first few episodes as it didn't really know what it was at the time.
