    I need another new podcast. Hardcore History is just too long. I am willing to dedicate an hour to an episode but after that I don't want to listen anymore...and also I am usually done with my run.

      What are you looking for in a podcast? History? Comedy? Drama? Other?

        Just started listening to On Time, a podcast (but more of a conversation really) about watches. Only heard one episode so far, but I am enjoying it.

          Comedy would help pass the time there is just so much. I want to stay away from self-help or fiction stories.

            [MENTION=4069]JBarwick[/MENTION] ah, can't help you there. I don't listen to any comedy podcasts.

              there are so many great comedy podcasts. WTF w/ marc maron, the Joe Rogan Podcast, monday morning podcast with bill burr, gilbert gottfried's amazing colossal podcast, the comedy cellar: live from the table, fitzdog radio, my wife hates me podcast are some great ones.

                On road trips I listen to Belinda Blinked with the wife. The premise is insane, dad of one of the guys on the show wrote a serialized, pornographic, self-published novel. It's real bad. So they read it. Hilarity ensues.

                Weekly I listen to My Brother, My Brother, and Me: An Advice Show for the Modern Era. All I have to say about that is watch this fan-animated segment https://youtu.be/ZvoVWSP-T4Q

                  My top two comedy podcasts are:

                  Spontaneanation with Paul F Tompkins can be pretty great. It's narrative improve based in part off a conversation with a guest and a location provided. Because it's improv some are better than others, but the 'Dracula's Bedroom' (#6) and 'Student Lounge at a Performing Arts High School' (#10) are probably my favorites.

                  How Did This Get Made is also really funny. They watch bad or campy movies and then pick them apart. You don't have to watch the movies, but sometimes it helps to know what they're talking about.

                    I tried listening to How Did This Get Made and was unimpressed. Maybe I just picked a bad episode or two to try. It's also not an easy podcast to navigate (at least on iTunes). With all the prequels to this episode and sequels to that episode... Maybe it's me.

                      For watch geeks give On Time a try.

                      And for just nerds in general, I really like 99% Invisible.

                      I'm sure these have been mentioned before but what the hell? I thought I'd mention them again.

                        +1 for 99% invisible.

                        Also, at running the risk of being redundant as well--- Stuff You Should Know and Reply All are always at the top of my list of favorite podcasts.

                          Joe Rogan's podcast has been excellent lately. Bret Weinstein, the now-famous professor from Evergreen State College and Sebastian Junger, a NYT writer (former foreign correspondent who made the documentary Restrepo) talking about his new book Tribe were both on in the past couple weeks.

                          Rogan seems most known for his MMA involvement and controversy over his standup routines, but he's a very good interviewer and seems to have a broad knowledge base to interact intelligently with his guests.

                            Thanks for this [MENTION=11125]burban[/MENTION]. I was not aware that Junger has a new book out. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading his other novels and will have to see if the most recent one is at the library.

                              I guess it's not brand new, came out just about a year ago. I've read his reporting and seen Restrepo, but never read his books. He also just finished a documentary for NatGeo about Syria and ISIS that I'm definitely going to check out.

                                Pod Save America. Politics with former Obama staffers, but with lots of swearing. Basically my liberal support group.
