I heard a great story about a waitress in Hollywood who dealt with a vulgar regular diner who turned out to request her every time he returned. Eventually they develop a friendship and he flies her granddad to Las Vegas so he can fly a vintage WWII airplane he bought from Tom Cruise. Ring any bells?
I'm working my way through BSG (just started season 3) and I've learned of the existence of Ronald D. Moore's BSG podcasts (details here). How spoilery are they? Should I wait until I've finished the series to dive in, or is it safe to listen episode to episode?
I'm making a Swift iOS app that lets the user search years of daily podcasts from a certain Wordpress site. Right now it is working off an RSS feed that only goes back several days but I want to be able to dump everything into one giant file. Any ideas? [more inside]
My wife is having surgery this month which comes with a likely long recovery period. To help get her through this time we are looking at stocking up on new TV series and podcasts to keep her mind occupied during this time (aka electronic content!). What gripping-crime-drama TV series or that's-a-cool-idea-I-never-heard-about-before podcasts would you recommend? [more inside]

The final episode of Serial will be released this Thursday, and I fear that there will not be any sort of satisfying conclusion to the central mystery of what, exactly, happened to Hae Min Lee. So, as an antidote to the frustration that I'm likely to feel soon, I'm looking for real (non-fiction) mysteries that do get resolved in an unambiguous way. [more inside]
For the past couple years I have gone to sleep with podcasts on (usually sports or news podcasts) and find it really difficult to go to sleep without a podcast on. I have tried sound machines and they do not help. No matter how long I sleep, I generally wake up feeling fatigued, and can have brain fog or feel tired and am tired throughout the day. I have never been a particularly great sleeper, but I am at a place that I need to address the fatigue. I am going to go get checked by a sleep doctor in a couple months (switching insurance and travel schedule), but in the meantime I am assessing things I am doing that may cause the fatigue. Does anyone sleep with podcasts on? Could this be an issue? My thought is maybe my brain is semi-engaged because I am listening to the conversation. Total guess, but thought I would reach out and see if anyone else has dealt with this. Thanks!
I will listen to any subject under the sun (radio or podcast) that has a great interviewer. Terry Gross rules this genre. Anyone else of this calibre I should know about?
I spend 10+ hours per week commuting, 40+ hours wearing headphones at work (open-plan office: boo!), and ANOTHER 5+ hours wearing headphones at the gym. As such, I plow through an absolutely obscene volume of podcasts. I'd like some recommendations for more (lest I be forced to spend even a single second alone with my thoughts). To help you get an idea of my preferences, here are a few lists: [more inside]

I'm looking for some French or Dutch language podcasts that I can use to practice my comprehension. However, I'm looking for something more like Uhh Yeah Dude, Jordan Jesse Go!, or another "two people talking, being funny, and themselves" type podcast, rather than an NPR type show. Do any shows come to mind?

I'm about to leave for a two-day long car trip and I thought I could listen to some podcasts to pass the time. I'm a huge Bullseye with Jesse Thorn (formerly Sound of Young America) fan and I saw a link on the Maximum Fun website to download a torrent of all of the old episodes. So I downloaded the .torrent file and opened it on uTorrent but nothing happened. Any help on my predicament? What am I doing wrong and what can I do to properly download the files?

Looking for a particular podcast I used to listen to, lost track of, then forgot the name of it or the people involved. It was by a man and woman, probably in their early to mid 30s. Friends, but not romantic (he was married). Funny, conversational, no set topic, but not necessarily a "comedy" podcast. Popular enough to have t-shirts for their show. [more inside]

Starting a podcast (spoken word) and suddenly have the opportunity to interview the exact people I really shouldn't be "practicing" on. I'm a radiophile, want decent sound, but have no time to learn the technical side of sound recording before my interviews in a few days. Can I spend a little up front to make decent sound or do I just need to spend more? [more inside]

Recommend a podcast that offers valuable life lessons, but isn't a self-help or career-builder type podcast. Just a human being in his/her 40s or older who's been around the block and has valuable hard-won wisdom to share. Even better: guests with similar life experience. [more inside]
