    I added the Undiscovered podcast after hearing The Waste Book on Planet Money. It is another science-related podcast. It is well done. Another keeper, I think.

    [MENTION=15867]carlitos[/MENTION] That and The HourTime Podcast are pretty good, non-watch snobbery podcasts. At least for my listening they seem to be pretty good.

    Waking Up with Sam Harris is absolutely fantastic. I can't say enough good things about this one. Sam has to be the clearest thinking and most well spoken person I have ever heard.

I've listened to one episode apiece of Reveal and The Art of Manliness, but I think those are gonna make it into the regular rotation.

    Has anyone listened to Revolutions or Waking Up with Sam Harris? I'm gonna check those out as well.

    I'm just skimming the thread, and searched for "Sam Harris" and found this. I'm a fan. It will be interesting to see what his app looks like when it comes out.

    ETA - Thanks [MENTION=13399]DocDave[/MENTION] - I'm going to check out On Time.

    Anyone been listening to Alice Isn't Dead? I thought the first seasons was decent but my interest is starting to wane this season. Interested to see what others think/have to say.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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
