Default Tell me about your favorite Podcast!

I love Podcasts and I need to get some new ones.

Personally, I love RadioLab NYC. Each show is a topic, and they cover three stories based on that topic. The most recent one I heard is called Blood. Overall a pretty blah episode, but the third story is mind blowing.

Its about the Blood-ring where hospitals harvest blood for what they need then sell to other needy hospitals (mostly New York).

So whats your favorite Podcast?

Yeah, Radiolab is pretty much the go-to podcast for me when I want to learn something awesome. If you can, find their episode called "loops'. It's fascinating.

Other podcasts that are essential for starting out are This American Life and The Moth for just overall amazing stories and reports on interesting things. For comedy fans check out The Nerdist with Chris Hardick. He has great guests such as Mel Brooks, Tom Hanks, Robert Kirkman, Josh Homme, and Patton Oswalt. Other good comedy podcasts are Doug Loves Movie and the Joe Rogan Show.

I've heard loops! Was that the one with the Mobius Strip?

Planet Money is also really interesting. I expected it to be boring, but its pretty entertaining.

I love Radiolab and have listened to every single episode of it. I do feel like it's had a bit of a decline in quality in the past few months though. I don't know what that's all about.

I'm also a huge fan of the movie review show Filmspotting. Not only do the hosts do a great job commenting on both old and new cinema but they're also pretty funny at times, especially when they reenact movie scenes in their Massacre Theater segment.

A lot of my favourite podcasts are Australian so they're probably not relevant to other members but I'll share anyway...

Hack - Australian current affairs and issues and stuff.

Nerdzilla - Nerdy, geek stuff.

StarStuff - Space/universe/science stuff.

Unearthed - New and little-known Australian music and stuff.

I might have to check out Radiolab?!

I forgot about Filmspotting. Slash filmcast is also a great one.

If you want to hear the best damn Radiolab episode, check out Colors. Seriously. As I mentioned above I feel like they've lost steam a little lately, but episodes like "Colors" are definitely examples of them doing everything right.
