I like listening to things. Though, for some reason, I only really started getting into podcasts about a year ago. Here are the ones I listen to, which ones do you listen to?
The Ancient World - http://podbay.fm/show/517589332
A history podcast which discusses the very origins of human civilization. From the ancient Sumerians to the very earliest years of the Roman republic. In particular, the episode discussing the rise of democracy in Athens is fucking good. The show is actually over now, but then he started a new show! That one was about the history of people discovering ancient history. It is also over! Currently he's doing a series called "Bloodlines" which I'm really enjoying. It traces a lineage from Cleopatra (last independent ruler of Egypt who committed suicide after her capitol was conquored by the Romans), and will eventually wends its way down through the generations to Zenobia. The warrior queen of Palmyra who almost took Egypt back from the Romans.
The History of Rome - http://podbay.fm/show/261654474
A history podcast with a fairly obvious focus. It goes all the way from the mythical founding of the eternal city by Romulus and Remus, all the way to the fall of the Western empire. It's honestly a pretty phenomenal podcast.
Harmontown - http://www.harmontown.com/category/podcasts/
A comedy podcast where Dan Harmon sits on a stage and gets drunk for 2 hours. It's pretty amazing. I'm a stupid helpless fanboy of Dan's.
This Feels Terrible - http://podbay.fm/show/535677158
Holy shit TFT is good. It's been sitting at episode 66 for ages now, but Erin swears up and down that she's going to get it started back up again.
The basic format is as follows: Eric McGathy brings on a guest, and they talk about the worst, most fucked up romance stories from that person's history. You learn an awful lot about Erin along the way. She's a fascinating person. And as a man nearing his 30th birthday, who has spent most of his adult life in very successful relationships, I can honestly say that I've learned more about how to be in a relationship from this podcast than I've learned from any other source. (except, ya know, all the stuff I learned from actually being in a relationship). TFT is a must listen IMHO.
Human Conversation - http://www.feralaudio.com/show/human-conversation/
I'mma be honest, this is my least favorite podcast I listen to. As much as I love and respect Erin McGathy, I cannot fucking stand her co-host, Wayne Federman. None the less, I listen to it, because I like to keep up with Erin's projects.
I'm currently on the last 10 episodes of History of Rome. Then I'll have a few weeks worth of catching up to do with my other podcasts, then I'll need to find a new one. So I'd be interested to know if any of you have suggestions.
