What podcasts do you listen to?
NPR cuts up many of their segments into bite-sized podcasts and the result is marvelous. Freakonomics episodes run five to ten minutes apiece and have some neat a-ha moments. Radiolab is one of the best casts out there; they put a lot of thought into the composition of their show, and the results are marvelous. Their episode “Man of a Thousand Voices” explores the story of Mel Blanc’s coma and is absolutely worth a listen.
The Bailey Jay show is fantastic. She’s fun, raunchy, and a trans woman – a combination that cannot be matched. The episodes can run a little long sometimes but it’s still worth a listen.
Video Games Hot Dog is my premiere road trip fuel. It’s nice to hear game designers critiquing and talking about games from the perspective of game design. It helps that they’re hilarious as well. Their “homework” segment, where they critique and discuss an old or new game they’ve decided to play through, sheds new light on old favorites.
How do you listen to podcasts?
Podcasts are my road trip fuel. I throw a bunch of them onto my phone when I’ll be spending time driving and binge on my favorites. As an added bonus this keeps me from falling asleep at the wheel, so bonus!
