    Podcasts - Which Ones Do You Listen To?

    I'm looking to add a few good podcasts to my library for all my time in the car and at the gym. Which ones do you like and why?

    Disclaimer: in the spirit of the board's policies, I'd prefer if folks steered clear of political ones. I have no use for them as it is and I'd rather not get the thread derailed.

    Especially their live concert series is especially excellent.

    I've thought about the Rick Gervais one. I'm a big fan of his most of the time.

    I really haven't looked for too much else as I don't have a ton of time for podcasts, and these three fill the time I do have pretty adequately. I really only listen to Simmons during football season or if he does something on pop culture that I care about.

    Thanks for the tip on that one. I downloaded a concert with Ray Davies of the Kinks doing their songs with a chorale group. Haven't had a chance to listen to it yet.

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Besides a couple of faith-based podcast, mostly by people I'm familiar with, including one of my old professors, I've just subscribed to Bob Edwards' podcast. A couple of good shows lately--one with Daniel Ellsberg, the other with a woman who wrote a book on a woman who died in the fifties, but whose cells multiply in ways that haven't yet been explained. Her cells have been used for research ever since, everything from testing the polio vaccine to (shades of Mengele) injecting her cancer cells into unsuspecting patients to see what happened.

    on a side note the guy who runs the cameras on the podcast, Andrew Koenig, who also played "Boner" on the Kirk Cameron/Alan Thicke sitcom "Growing Pains" is missing. He is also the son of actor Walter Koenig, who played Chekov on the original Star Trek series

    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.
