    Every now and again I'll tune in to the Nerdist podcast. For me some of the episodes can be hit and miss. I guess it all depends on who you want to hear speak. So far I end blowing past/deleting more than I listen to, but I'm always interested to see who they bring on the show.

      Invisiblia is fascinating. If you like Radiolab, you'll like Invisibilia

        I'll agree it had some great topics, but the presentation style didn't entirely work for me. Too much wasted time by the two presenters trying to be cute. Maybe the show is trying to go after a different (i.e. young female) demographic.

          Adam Carolla's Car Cast, Ace on the House and a little bit of his main show.

            I personally did not find the presentation of stories all that different from Radiolab. It definitely did not feel like it was going after a demo other than...me.

              The only episode of How Did This Get Made I've heard was a live episode in which they discussed "Rhinestone" starring Sylvester Stallone and Dolly Parton. It was so damn funny I embarrassed myself multiple times by laughing aloud (hard) on the train. Thanks for reminding me of this one - I'll have to go back and check out some more episodes.

                Yeah, took a pass on this one. I tried it, but something about the podcast just didn't sit right with me. Too bad too as I really enjoy Radiolab.

                  I am a big fan of the Nerdist podcast with Chris Hardwick, as well as How Did This Get Made (as previously mentioned by others) as well as The Vergecast (tech) and Checkered Flag Formula 1 (I am a big F1 racing fan). Ten Minute Podcast has also had me cracking up a number of times (comedy).

                    Art of Manliness- his interviews with authors are really well done. You can tell that the host is prepared.
                    You are Not So Smart- podcast companion to blog about the science of self delusion
                    (another vote for) Hardcore History by Dan Carlin- LONG and well researched history podcast
                    The History of Rome- 100+ episode on the rise and fall of Rome
                    Freakonimics- if you like the books
                    Spycast From the Int'l Spy Museumn
                    Football Ramble- soccer podcast from UK, heavy on English leagues but pretty funny
                    Puck Podcast- weekly hockey podcast, thorough
                    Shutdown Fullcast- College football, kind of SEC heavy.
                    Worst Episode Ever- simpsons podcast about the worst simpsons episodes
                    10 American Presidents- only one episode out now, but it is a 2hr plus episode with Dan Carlin detailing Richard Nixon. very well done

                      [MENTION=2779]auronblue[/MENTION] what's the Vergecast like? Does it just discuss latest tech trends - like the iWatch for example - or does it get in to stories about security breaches and whatnot?

                        Based on this thread, I listened to a couple episodes of How Did This Get Made. Fast and Furious and Mortal Kombat. This is right up my alley. It's Mystery Science Theater and movie conversations with my friends. I am a little disappointed however. I wish it was a bit more polished. You can't make a comment funny by just prefacing it with "Fucken ..." all the time. It gets hard to follow with everybody talking all at once and they often don't finish their sentences because the words escape them and rely on the audience or each other to finish. They do a bit of research but I guess I got used to How Stuff Works level of research.

                            The short answer is yes. They are a weekly podcast that covers all kinds of tech trends and topics. From CES coverage, to net neutrality, to devices, and other items. It pretty much runs the full gamut.

                                Just downloaded half a dozen episodes, this sounds awesome. Thanks for the recommendation.
