another podcast suggestion question
June 9, 2014 9:38 AM Subscribe
My job lets me listen to stuff while I work, and I'm finding that podcasts are the right level of mental stimulation. I don't know much about podcasts. I like media and funny people shooting the shit. What should I listen to?

So far I've been listening to these:
My Brother, My Brother, and Me: Hilarious. I enjoy the raunchiness and the brothers are usually pretty good about checking each others' more offensive jokes, which I'm not into.
WTF with Marc Maron: Marc Maron is an interesting dude and he has a lot of cool talks with cool people, which I enjoy. Often really funny. The first ten minutes with Marc oversharing and rambling about his life can get a little grating, but overall, I'm a fan.
NPR's Pop Culture Happy Hour: I like this a lot. Just getting into this one so far, but I find them very charming and I love what they talk about. I like that I finish these episodes better informed, but I never feel like I'm listening to a lecture.
I like these things:
film/book/TV/video game reviews and analysis
conversational delivery of cool info
comedy with a direction, like MBMBAM's advice thing or Marc Maron's interview format
