    Spotify has a whole list of them, it's the service my wife and I use. Have used others, but once I got Spotify/Hulu bundle it's all I use.

      @BMF HBR Ideacast is really good if you're okay with a wide range of topics. If not, I would HIGHLY recommend the Ideacast recently posted with Michael Porter. He uses his five forces method to talk about politics. Its short and awesome - nonpartisan too. Both sides catch crap as examples of what is wrong with voting.

      Another specific podcast I recommend is the Joe Rogan interview of Elon Musk. It is looooong - like 3 hours - but I really enjoyed it. I went for a walk and listened to most of it. Highly recommended but his predictions on his Neural Link are scary.

        Highly recommend Jocko Willink's podcast. If that guy can't motivate you then you are unmotivatable.

          Been listening to Son of a Hitman, a documentary about Charles Harrelson, Woody’s dad, who famously went to prison for assassinating a federal judge in Texas.

          Up And Vanished is another good one that started based on the Tara Grinstead case. Any other posters on here from South Georgia are probably very familiar with that one.

          I like the true crime stuff.

          My wife and I listened to Tara Grinstead. Happened not too far from her home town. None of the shenanigans surprised her.

          I grew up in Tifton, 20 minutes from where she disappeared and was killed.

          I've mentioned it before the Hardcore History by Dan Carlin is fascinating stuff. They are long, but if you're using them to kill time on a commute or something they are awesome. Many of them are multi-part subjects such as the rise of Japan leading to WW2 or the advent of mechanized total warfare in WW1. Try a single episode subject to get you started such as Destroyer of Worlds, which is about the advent of atomic weapons and how they have changed everything. Sometimes when I get where I'm going I find myself sitting in the car continuing to listen to the narration.

                Listening to Joe Rogan’s interview with James Lindsay covering the absolute absurdity of today’s woke/cancel culture. Pretty good so far

                Is it this one? If so, frickin' hilarious (The Dog Park paper...and "I'm translating a chapter of Mein Kampf into feminist theory"... holy cow :lol: )

                Edit: Just finished this video and it is really sobering at the end...

                  AntennaPod is a good Android app for podcasts. I listen to:

                  • Joe Rogan
                  • Adam Carolla (he has several, including one with Dr. Drew)
                  • Mysterious Universe
                  • Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History
                  • Last Podcast on the Left (they moved to Spotify, which sucks, but I think there is still an archive of past episodes you can listen to)
                  • Missing in Alaska (a single season podcast about a plane that went down in 1972 carrying two Congressmen)
                  • Radiolab
                  • Welcome to Nightvale
                  • This American Life
                  There are so many out there, I usually have to pick and choose which episodes to listen to. I do like true crime podcasts, too, but I like the ones that go into a case in depth over the course of a season.

                  There’s a REALLY good podcast, called Winds of Change.

                  It investigates whether the CIA wrote the Scorpion’s song, Winds of Change. I’m only 1/2 way through the podcast, but there appears to be some legitimacy the CIA did write it.

                  The podcast also goes into the CIA influencing other musicians, such as Louie Armstrong.

                  Highly recommend it.
