I don't think I'm alone in being a podcaster that loves listening to other podcasts. I thought it might be fun for people to share their favourites. I tend to have a handful I regularly catch up with and others that I will seek out for a specific episode.

 

Share your favourites and why you like them!

Hey David, this is my favourite podcast, with daylight second. Apart from the "Keyboard Chronicles", of course!

 

Conversations - ABC

 

It's "Conversations", from our very own public broadcaster. Richard Fidler and Sarah Kanowski are excellent interviewers and they have such a diverse range of guests with amazing stories to tell.

 

Has soaked up many an hour while away on tour!

"Behind The Shot" - photography podcast by Steve Brazill

 

"Photo Geek Weekly" - photography podcast by Don Komarechka

 

"Secret History of the Future" - "Journey into the past and you"ll discover the secret history of the future. From the world"s first cyberattack in 1834, to 19th-century virtual reality, the Economist"s Tom Standage and Slate"s Seth Stevenson examine the historical precedents that can transform our understanding of modern technology, predicting how it might evolve and highlighting pitfalls to avoid. Discovering how people reacted to past innovations can also teach us about ourselves."

Science Rules! with Bill Nye - I like it, I learn a lot, but I often want more depth.

 

There's another one that I like but it's Almost always political, so I won't Frankly mention it. That being said, he's had some guests who are fellow comedians (Dana Carvey, Sarah Silverman, Conan O'Brien) and those are usually hilarious as well.

I got turned on to an amazing limited-series podcast called "Last Seen," about the largest unsolved art heist in history, of the Isabella Stuart Gardner Museum in Boston in the early 90s. What starts as an investigation of what appears to be an inside job by some suspect security guards expands to include the Boston and Philadelphia mafia, and eventually, an international crime syndicate. It had me completely gripped from beginning to end.

 

My wife is really into the whole true crime thing, and I can't stomach it, but this was perfect for both of us -- a true crime, investigative journalism podcast, where the victim was art!

 

More on the comedy side of things, another variation on the true crime theme is "Murdertown," which is a bunch of improv comics doing deliberately bad investigative journalism.

 

And for those who don't mind some not-at-all-safe-for-work humor, "My Dad Wrote a Porno" is devastatingly funny.

Wow some brilliant suggestions so far, keep em coming! CowboyNQ: I'm also a big fan of Conversations though tend to pick and choose based on the guest. Samuel: My Dad Write a Porno is great, I've only listened to a couple but enjoyed them :thu:

 

Joe: nothing wrong with a good old political podcast. Although overtly biased (at their own admission), I dip into Pod Save America when i can, love their style :)
