In no particular order…my favorite podcasts.
I listen to a lot of podcast during my workdays. I like funny ones and also informative ones.
Unless otherwise noted, all of these podcasts will at least occasionally use profanity. Use headphones at work. Actually, there is probably only ONE on the list that is work-safe.
Edit 8/13/2015: Adding the Henry & Heidi podcast, from Henry Rollins. It is mostly just Henry telling stories to his longtime assistant Heidi, but Henry has some good stories. Lots of them.
The Monday Morning Podcast – comedian Bill Burr. Usually Bill and a mic and a recorder. Good.
Pep Talks with the Bitter Buddha – comedian/actor Eddie Pepitone. Love Eddie’s show.
the Nerdist – good podcast – various comedy and nerd topics and guests – by Chris Hardwick.
the Dana Gould Hour – comedian Dana Gould and various guests. Well-produced and thought-out podcast. Dana likes to talk about monster movies.
Point of Inquiry – podcast from the Center for Inquiry, publisher of the Skeptical Inquirer.
Hour of Slack – radio show/podcast from the Church of the Subgenius. Praise “BOB”.
the KunstlerCast – podcast from James Howard Kunstler, who writes about city design, new urbanism, peak oil, and various policy issues.
A Small American City – by Duncan Crary, former producer/interviewer on the Kunstlercast. Duncan’s podcast is about the small city he lives in. He is an expert podcast producer – his show sounds really good. This one is about 99% safe for work. I can’t remember any cursing on it, but I guess it is possible.
The C-Realm Podcast – by KMO. Lots of topics on this podcast. KMO has been podcasting a LOOONG time. Prolific.
