    I've never really given them the time of day, but have been "paroozing" odd ones here and there lately.
    The selection both on iTunes and Spotify is overwhelming.
    Does anyone have any favourites or recomendations?
    i'm into listening about health and fitness, wine, some odd humour
    I listened to 3 hours of joe rogan with Dan B yesterday and really loved that

    I listen to five or six hours of podcasts at work every day. Some of my favourites are The Daily, Up First, Planet Money, 99% invisible, Serial, Criminal, Freakonomics, The Indicator, Undisclosed...

    There are tons. I could go on. I'm more into news, economics, random knowledge, true crime, and ecommerce stuff for the most part though.

    The Daily is great - short, sweet, great daily news analysis. We have it set up on our Alexa so we can just say, "Alexa, what's new?" and get that as our morning news feed.

    The Daily, followed immediately by Up First, are the first two things I listen to once I get to work in the morning. Both are great.

    I really like "How Did This Get Made?", where comedians critique/make fun of ridiculous movies. Also a fan of Joe Rogan.

    I’ve been into this American life lately. “Human error in volatile situations” and “fiasco” are good. “129 cars” is also another great one.

    Dan Carlin’s hardcore history is also one of my favorites. Some are like 5-6 hours long but they’re excellent.

    I hate that there are so many good podcasts out there. Not enough listening time to take them all in :(

    They play This American Life on NPR so I catch it on the weekends sometimes just driving around (just heard it which made me think of it).

    Check out Tim Ferris as well, he can be a bit long winded but lots of interesting info. The Terry Crews interview from December was really good.

    Stown was a decent one off.

    S-Town is part of TAL from what I gather. Have you tried that one yet?

    Any new recommendations? Odd facts/history, useless information, news, true crime, I'm interested in pretty much anything that's decent...

    I keep forgetting to give this one a listen. Thanks for the reminder. Usually pretty good?

    I’ve been into Dan Cummins’ Timesuck. I found him a little cringe at first but god damn if I can’t help but listen to them all.

    Trying this one now. The random knowledge seems right up my alley, but so far, I kind of wish he was here, talking to me in person so I could kick him in the nutsack. I suspect it'll grow on me...

    He grows on you. The first few I was like “this guy is fucking terrible” but now I’m a fan. Listening to the Donner Party episode right now as I sit in a parking lot waiting to go in for a meeting. I highly suggest the Caligula episode. He has two guest comedians on and i legit laughed out loud the entire time

    Also listened to a couple Astonishing Legends ones over the past few days. They’re a little Paranormal but the production quality is excellent and it sent me down a paranormal rabbit hole for a few weeks. :o Lore and Unexplained were awesome on the topics. Especially the Aleister Crowley episodes. Unexplained was centered in the UK but it was still really fucking good.

    I have a few Crime in Sports ones lined up too. They’re like 3 hours long each
