    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.

      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 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.

          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).

            Revolutions podcast by Mike Duncan. If you havent listened to his history of rome podcast, it is highly recommended

              New Serial podcast is out!!! No idea what the story line is, but I noticed the new podcast had been downloaded this morning. Based on much I enjoyed last year's Serial, here's hoping this one is just as good.

                  [MENTION=11125]burban[/MENTION] I just finished with the first chapter of the podcast. Not bad. Kind of reminded me of John Krakauer's book Where Men Win Glory: The Odyssey of Pat Tillman.

                    I just picked that book up in a used bookstore over Thanksgiving. Looks fascinating.

                      The book is excellent. I look forward to hearing what your thoughts are. Cheers.

                        There are some great recommendations here. I've caught bits and piece of The John Batchelor Show before and I liked it, so I'll be sure to listen to some of those podcast episodes. I'm also going to check out Planet Money, EconTalk and The History of Rome based on the recommendations in this thread. If you're a history buff, I recommend checking out BackStory.

                            [MENTION=14985]nklw[/MENTION] I hear ya. I wasn't sure about this season's Serial but after the first three episodes I must say that I am hooked.

                            I am definitely loving the past episodes of You Must Remember This too.

                              Listened to season 1 of Serial while painting and the first episode of Season 2. I am halfway through Episode 2 so I may give it a listen on my way home from work.

                                I've been listening to The Flop House. Although I like and still listen to How Did This Get Made, TFH feels more like a show, better/creative vocabulary. HDTGM has a lot of "Like, come on!", "Bonkers!", "I meaaaan, seriously!". I just wish TFH did more than bad/bad movies because 80% of the movies they do I haven't seen, don't want to see so it doesn't seem as funny to me hearing them talk about it.
