• Hardcore History
    • I’m no history buff, and Dan Carlin’s is no historian (his words), but this enthralling and entertaining podcast is incredible storytelling, pure and simple. One of the best podcasts out there.
  • Sam Harris
    • In my opinion, one of the most intelligent and eloquent thinkers out there on a variety of important topics
  • Tim Ferriss
    • I always thought his “Four Hour Work Week” sounded like a gimmick, until I started learning more about him and his podcast. He is a prolific podcaster and interviews tons on interesting people
  • Radiolab
    • This famous NPR show is also a podcast. Excellent production value and fascinating topics.
  • Love + Radio
    • Something a bit different. I like that they often jump right into a story without much background, leaving the listener a bit confused but seriously engaged. Topics lean toward the risque.
  • My Favorite Murder
    • A bit of a guilty pleasure, and the only real comedy podcast I listen to. These two ladies may not be everyone’s style, but they always get a laugh out of me. Yes, it’s a true crime comedy podcast about murder.
  • This American Life
    • Another famous NPR podcast, with great storytelling and production.
  • Serial
    • The first season of this podcast had me waiting for the release of each episode; the second season was interesting but not quite as compelling. I’ll be interested to see what the future holds for this one.
  • Revisionist History
    • Malcom Gladwell’s podcast has only a short season available right now, but it’s a good one. He revisits news stories that he thinks were incompletely or incorrectly told.
