    The Leap. A very cool podcast about inventions that originated for one thing (like a new source of rubber for tyres) only to be used for something completely different (like silly putty instead of tyres).

    Just found Imaginary Worlds. The podcast is dedicated to sci-fi, superheroes, fairy tales and other fantasy genres. The description doesn't really do the podcast justice, but it hits the high spots for me.

    BTW I ditched The Message. Wasn't really doing much for me.

    I mainly listen to comedy podcasts now. I used to have a ton of podcasts in my feed but had to cut it down to only the ones I felt most connected to.

    -Comedy Bang Bang
    -How Did This Get Made?
    -James Bonding
    -Men in Blazers
    -Pistol Shrimps Radio (two improv comedians do play-by-play for a womens recreational basketball team in los angeles)
    -Spontaneanation with Paul F Tompkins (whether I listen depends on the guests)
    -Superego (improv comedy with production values)
    -The Art of Manliness (4+ months ago I listened to 2 episodes that changed my way of thinking and potentially my life, yet I haven't listened to any since... It's weird how everyone in this thread wants to listen, but rarely does.)
    -The Dead Authors Podcast
    -Worst Idea of All Time (two comedians from NZ watched Grown Ups 2 every week for a year)

    Some old podcasts that I'll still go back and listen to are:
    -The Thrilling Adventure Hour
    -The Andy Daly Podcast Pilot Project (8 episode spin-off of Comedy Bang Bang)
    -The Pod F Tompkast

    Just started listening to The Message. The podcast is about a declassified radio transmission from the 1940s. The audio has been kicked around by gov't types for a while now trying to decrypt the message within. I've only started it, but so far it seems interesting.

    Radiolab this week is all about viruses that can not withstand antibiotics and how we are looking at solutions from the past for killer current day bugs. Very very informative and neat.

    Also, I know I raved about this before, but the whole Manson Murders on You Must Remember This was amazing. Extremely well done and produced.

    I'm annoyed that thee new IOS seems to have done away with the Next/Skip button when listening to podcasts. Anyone else found this to be the case?

    I thought I'd give Overcast a shot. I read some good things on the interwebs. But you're right. The stock app does 98% of what I need in an app to do. However it does tend to forget what I'm subscribed too at times which I do find annoying.

    I use Pocket Casts. I like it but I don't really have much to compare it to. I basically selected it based on reading a few internet articles on podcast apps. From what i recall it sounded pretty well rounded.

    Honestly, the stock app worked pretty well like 98% of the time. I had a few rare stability issues, but I think I got something knew out of boredom more than anything else.

    Thirding You Must Remember this. It has been the background to all cooking projects this Fall as I catch up on the back catalog. I've recommended it to multiple people. It helps if you like movies, but I think really anyone could enjoy it.

    I've really been enjoying "You Must Remember This" as well. The Manson series is really well done. Karina Longworth, the host/writer, is an interesting and thoughtful person herself. I recommend the Longform Podcast's interview with her.

    Found some great new (well new to me) podcasts.

    1. The Lapse - true stories told with amazing sound effects and soundtracks.
    2. You Must Remember This - history of Hollywood legends (right now I'm listening to the history of the Manson Murders. VERY creepy and interesting)
    3. Lore - myths, rumours, anything spooky that is founded in truth and fact.

    Just listened to Here Be Monsters last night. Man, was that ever a creepy podcast! If background on the Heaven's Gate cult interests you, give this podcast a listen.

    I love "How Did This Get Made", the most recent episode about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has to be one of the funniest things I have heard in a long time.
