What Podcast Are You Listening To?

I've noticed a few people over the past number of months offering up suggestions for podcasts and given there certainly is a growing interest in them, I thought a thread might be useful, similar to that of the "What book are you reading?" thread.
The thread is for suggestions of certain podcasts, specific episodes and/or interesting guests.

It may not be of any interest but I'm sure there are some interesting podcasts that people are listening to at the moment across a range of topics.
I've certainly come across a few very good ones in the past few months on IPB so hopefully people contribute.

Ill kick it off with a few I've listened to in past few months.

Finance: http://mebfaber.2.cavendoclient.com/2017/02/08/10017/ Pretty good podcast overall, this a decent episode with Ed Thorp, poker book author, made a good point about the perception of a home as an investment

Cryptos: http://investorfieldguide.com/hashpower/
I've suggested this a few times on other threads but the podcast as a whole from Patrick O' Shaughnessay(son of What works on Wall Street author) is very good.

Decision-Making/Success/Knowledge:

This podcast is quite broad and features a number of different people on different subjects. Dalio is probably the most famous guest so far and it's a great insight into his routine and thoughts about a range of topics like his "Ideaocracy" style in the workplace.

I very occasionally listen to Sam Harris but I find the timbre of his voice sends me to sleep.

What I listen to...

Freakonomics radio - almost all episodes.
Hardcore history - all episodes.
Off the Ball - rugby and sportspeople interviews. The YouTube channel is great too.
Art of manliness and Tim Ferris occasionally.
Primal blueprint the odd time.


Good idea for a thread!

This American Life - listen to almost all but not always a fan! Dislike the smarminess and OTT 'educated American liberal' tone can be really annoying
The Moth - all episodes
Planet Money (probably my favourite) - all episodes
99% Invisible - almost all
Blindboy (listen occasionally, very good to be fair)
Freaknomics - used to listen to all, much more of an occasional thing now
BBC History Podcast - listen to about 50%
Desert Island Discs - listen to about 25%
WTF with Marc Maron - listen to one or two per month
Something to Wrestle with Bruce Pritchard - listen to all of the episodes featuring the 80s WWF stars; Mr Perfect, Ravishing Rick Rude, etc...

My essentials are mostly BBC stuff

In Our Time
Start The Week
Infinite Monkey Cage
More or Less
A good Read
Weekly Quiz program
Inside Science
The Life Scientific
A point of view (varies greatly with contributors doing a few weeks at a time)
Desert Island Discs

Then the NewYorker Fiction Podcast is the only non bbc I have set to always download.

I get it hard to find podcast listening time but somebody put me onto 99% Invisible and I've listened to it every week since.

Joey Barton’s has a podcast called the edge only gave the one with Gary Neville a listen last would definitely recommend it (and I wouldn’t be a big fan of Barton’s) . Heard the one with Sean dyche also very good .

For those with an unhealthy obsession with Table Quizzes I have found Trivial Warfare to be an amusing and occasionally enlightening podcast.

Anyone into True Crime?

I love Casefile. Been getting into others to fill the gap in between episodes. Mens Rea and Crimeroom are good ones with mostly Irish stories.

You would probably find his meditation App pretty good then

Being serious he obviously has a good grounding in the area as he left Stanford in his second year and went to India and Nepal, where he studied meditation with teachers of Buddhist and Hindu religions. He didn't return for almost a decade. I did give the first couple of free lessons a listen and would like to do more of the course but he can get fucked for a price of 15 quid a month.

Just gonna cross-post this from boards:

Turns out, what she invented was on par with a mediocre secondary-school science project and was essentially useless. Didn't stop her from getting the company up to an estimated value of $9 billion, though.

The story of how she managed it is fascinating.

Reminds me a lot of the Fyre Festival fiasco that was the subject of a couple of documentaries recently.

It's also amazing to see how far you can actually get by just by looking the part and telling people a story, without actually providing any hard evidence.

Well worth the listen, it's the only podcast currently that I'm dying to listen to each week.
I haven't listened to it myself but there seems to be a lot of positive reviews and I know Denny and maybe a couple of others have had an interest in this story over the years.

The book on the company Theranos, at one stage valued at more than 5 bn USD, is called Bad Blood, and worth a read ...

He does seem very hungry for loots, what do himself, Dawkins and Peterson do with all that cash.

Did you see their latest cash in? They have published a transcript of the Four Horseman of Atheism conversation with Harris, Hitchens, Dennett & Dawkins. Stephen Fry wrote the prologue, he was Harris most recent guest.

The app is expensive, I didn't buy it but a couple of caveats I'd place for Harris is, he doesn't have ads on his podcast while most others do.
He relies on donations apparently while also donating the first 3k a month to GiveWell.
Also, he's willing to give the app for free for a year to anyone who emails the podcast and explains they don't have the finances to pay for it.

I have no doubts he's done very well for himself with books, live tours and the podcast/app but he seems to do a reasonable bit of philanthropy.
