    [MENTION=11125]burban[/MENTION] Thanks for the FiveThirtyEight recommend. I listened to some of their back catalog over the weekend and now they are in my subscriptions.

    [MENTION=11125]burban[/MENTION] I think you're right. But it raises a question for me as to what the right-leaning equivalent would be? The strong policy focus makes it less clearly partisan than other political podcasts. The closest I've found is The Libertarian, which basically features softly prompted monologues by NYU Law prof. Richard Epstein on various issues of the day. And agree with him or not, he's extremely smart. But its clearly libertarian rather than Republican or conservative, and he has little interest in whether his ideas are politically feasible or not (for the most part they're not).

    Two others are the Ezra Klein show which features a wide range of guests both on the political spectrum, and across various walks of life, and The Axe Files, which is David Axelrod's equivalent from U Chicago.
    The Federalist Radio Hour run by Ben Domenech will often have serious right-leaning policy discussion with guests like Yuval Levin, Christina Hoff Sommers, Nicholas Eberstadt, and Steven Teles on, in addition to more political guests like columnists and side discussions on culture and sports. Ben even got Evan McMullin, the independent presidential candidate, who is the most conventionally conservative candidate running, to come on the show.

    As far as strict statistical political analysis, 538's Elections podcast is supposed to be quite good and although nobody doubts Nate Silver's political leanings, he doesn't let that get him off of what the numbers are saying.

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

    [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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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