Ambassador to the humans
A question was asked in the chatbox about what podcasts I listen to. My current group of podcasts that I follow is:
- Up First - It's a quick summary of the past 24 hours news in 10-15 minutes that comes out really early in the day
- NPR Politics
- Android Central - I'm a tech nerd and I do really like android so this give me that nerd fix once a week. The episodes can range from 1-2 hours so it's not exactly a quick listen typically but oh well.
- Hello From the Magic Tavern - Ever wonder what it would be like to fall through a dimensional portal behind a Burger King and end up in the magical land of Foon? Well if you have then boy do I have the podcast for you... Honestly though this one is hilarious. Episodes tend to be about 45 minutes and come out once a week. When I'm looking for laughs this is a good place to start.
- Ear Hustle - A podcast about prison life. You know - cause I'm so gangsta.
- Levar Burton Reads - This is fairly new and it's just Levar Burton reading some of his favorite short stories. What's not to like (well other than episode 2 which was boooooooring but I've liked the rest).
- Stuff You Should Know - I really don't listen to this one too often but when a topic comes up that sounds interesting I'll give it a shot.
- Song Exploder - Typically about 20 minutes long these are basically artists walking through their process of creating a song. At the end you get to hear the finished product. Most of the artists I've never heard of so I don't really have any expectations coming in on those episodes but it's really interesting when you get an episode that you know the artist and song already.
- Presidential - I'm still working through this one... There is an episode devoted to each US President. Did you know there's a reason you probably don't know much about Millard Fillmore? The reason was that nothing really happened other than him having a silly name. Don't you long for those days?
- This American Life - I don't listen to every episode but it's really well done.
- Various others that I don't expect will have more episodes or update so infrequently I don't really count them: Apple Keynotes, Hi My Name Is Mark, S-Town, and there are a few others that I forget...
