Podcasts in my playlist

Last week, John Leeman wrote a list of podcasts recommendations and I thought I’d share mine here as well. I have been listening to podcasts since around 2014 and I’ve experimented with a few before finding some that I really enjoy. I still subscribe to some new podcasts when I find them. I’ll listen to a couple of episodes but lately none have stuck with me¹.

Here are the ones that stayed with me throughout 2016:

  • Hello Internet: The one that got me started with podcasts. A light conversation between two friends who make science videos on YouTube.
  • Cortex: CGP Grey and Myke Hurley talk about productivity and running small businesses.
  • Imaginary Worlds: “A show about how we create them and why we suspend our disbelief”. One of my favorites. If you’re looking for a place to start, try episode Dumbledore’s Army (even if you don’t like Harry Potter).
  • Invisibilia: A series about the forces that shape our lives. Also one of my favorites.
  • Talk Python To Me: The title pretty much says it all.
  • Undersampled Radio: Geeky and fun interviews, mostly about geo/science/technology.
  • Don’t Panic Geocast: John Leeman and Shannon Dulin talk about all things geoscience (sometimes with very interesting guests).
  • Radiolab: Interesting stories about all sorts of topics. Very high quality production.

And here are the ones that I tried but ended up dropping for some reason:

I subscribe and listen to all of them using the Podcast Addict app on my Android phone. You can also get most of them through Google Play Music or iTunes.

What are your recommendations?

¹ I know I’ve doing too much Python when I have to fight the urge to capitalize “none”.
