    Started listening to More Perfect based on the recommendations in this thread. What a great podcast! "The Political Thicket" was a particularly interesting episode, as the federal courthouse here in Kansas City, Missouri is named for Justice Charles Whittaker. I used to live a block away from the courthouse and attend hearings there all the time, yet knew almost nothing about the man until I listened to that episode.

    • I haven't seen any new Embedded episodes in awhile, but that's my favorite podcast. I'm also a fan of The Ezra Klein Show and BackStory, the latter of which I just started listening to again. I've listened to one episode apiece of Reveal and The Art of Manliness, but I think those are gonna make it into the regular rotation.

      Has anyone listened to Revolutions or Waking Up with Sam Harris? I'm gonna check those out as well.

      • Not sure if I mentioned this before or not, but Revisionist History with Malcolm Gladwell is really good.

        I've also started listening to the Drama of the Week by the BBC. Brings back the old time radio dramas back before there were such things as TV, Internet, etc. I highly recommend them both.

        Re: Art of Manliness, I subscribe to the feed, but I pick and choose the episodes I listen to.

        • Alright, so don't judge me -- I recently started listening to My Dad Wrote a Porno. This guy's father wrote a completely cringe-worthy erotic novella. The podcast is just the guy reading the book to his two friends and their comments/reactions. By far the funniest podcast I've ever heard (but, then again, I have the maturity of a middle schooler).

            In a similar vein to this is Competitive Erotic Fan Fiction. Comedians are assigned a topic, picked from a hat full of audience suggestions, about which they write an erotic fan faction. It's definitely a mixed bag. Some are artfully written, subtle, and hilarious. Some are deeply disgusting. Some are anywhere in between. Definitely one to listen to with headphones (and make sure that the environment you're in isn't quiet enough for them to be audible to others, made this mistake once, made it a very awkward day at work).

              Yeah, that's my plan for AOM, too.

              • The Fighter and The Kid - they talk about sports, MMA, and life. They're very upfront about what they feel which is AWESOME.
                Anna Faris is Unqualified - They don't really talk about a lot of important things, but I just really like seeing her (and sometimes Chris Pratt) in a candid state.
                Don't be afraid of dressing up...please.

                • Just downloaded the preview of the new podcast from the Welcome to Nightvale crew. This one is called The Orbiting Human Circus (of the Air). The preview sounded ok, so I'll give the first couple episodes a listen.

                  I thought Alice Isn't Dead was a pretty good podcast, but wasn't a far of Between The Wires (or whatever the other one was called). Welcome to Nightvale though I'm still a fan of.

                  • Just started listening to a new podcast from Jonathan Goldstein; Heavyweight. I thoroughly enjoyed his previous show on CBC called Wiretap so I'm looking forward to this show.

                    Heavyweight is a little different from Wiretap though. While Wiretap was more 'whinny' and 'woe is me', Heavyweight seeing Jonathan going out and helping his friends, family, and strangers right wrongs from the past. The few episodes I've listened to have been good.

                    • I've been in the mood for some history-related stuff, so I started on the Hardcore History series on WWI. Couldn't get into it, so I switched over to History of Rome, which I'm really enjoying. Couple dozen episodes in and still going strong.
                      “There are moments, Jeeves, when one asks oneself, 'Do trousers matter?'"
                      "The mood will pass, sir.”

                      • Probably a little-known fact here on Threads is that music is one of my big passions in life, and it strays into my reading and podcast habits. As such, lately I've been listening to Lead Singer Syndrome, hosted by Shane Told of Silverstein. On the show, he interviews vocalists from the punk/ hardcore/metal scene about singing and other aspects of their lives as professional musicians, and then plays samples of their music to cap off the episode. Shane's interview style is engaging to listen to, and the wide range of guests keeps the content interesting throughout.

                        • [MENTION=15132]Terminado[/MENTION] have you given All Songs Considered a listen? That podcast has been great for introducing me to new music. I absolutely love it.

                            I have! Your post earlier in the thread is actually what put me on to it.

                                Vox is moderate? I'd hate to see what you consider to be left-leaning. Is there a Bolshevik podcast?
