I've been meaning to check that out but I'm already overloaded on podcasts. Rhett Miller of the Old 97's has a new podcast too called "Wheels Off" about being a touring musician.

I also got into "Cocaine & Rhinestones" recently. It's a history of country music.

On Demi Adejuyigbe's "Punch Up The Jam" he makes fun of crappy (and not so crappy) songs and then does his own version is hilarious. He does parody songs all the time (I posted one in the Oscar thread) and he writes for James Corden.

I like Vic Berger's videos. He highlights the craziest bits.

Tomorrow's Joe Rogan has David Lee Roth. Will it be a crazier interview than Alex Jones?

DLR will tell crazy stories about doing blow and rock star shenanigans.


AJ talked about how inter-dimensional aliens want to steal your baby's organs and sell them to China.


It's no contest.

My latest - a conversation about growth and development with Councillors Farrell, Gondek and Carra. This one has generated a lot of banter on twitter.

I've been enjoying a couple conspiracy theory podcasts.

Tin Foil Hat: They take an Art Bell approach to conspiracies, they're more interested in exploring conspiracies, try to keep things pretty light and aren't very critical.



Those Conspiracy Guys: These guys take the deep dive into conspiracies, each podcast is usually between 4-7 hours long and has about 20-30 hours of research put into them. They spend a lot of time setting up historical context and sometimes only a small portion of the Podcast directly discusses the conspiracies. It's more historical than conspiratorial. After setting up context, they'll critically evaluate the likelihood of the theories being true.

In their Jim Morrison podcast, they spend most of it discussing his crazy life and just touch on the portions of his life that cross into conspiracy territory (27 club, Laurel Canyon and his father's involvement in the gulf of tonkin incident):

"Did you know Jim's dad was a Vice Admiral in the US navy and helped orchestrate the gulf of tonkin incident? It's like finding out Dick Cheney was Kurt Cobain's dad." (para-phrased)

There's a Late Night with Seth Meyers podcast. The other day he had John Mulaney on for a discussion about working on SNL.

Adam Duritz of Counting Crows has a podcast called Underwater Sunshine.

It covers a lot of deep dives into music & plays lots of interesting stuff.

Check out Dax Shepard’s podcast episode with Craig T Nelson. He tells stories from the old days (Poltergeist, All The Right Moves, And Justice For All, etc.) where he is completely drunk and gakked up while acting. Some of it is hilarious. Some tragic. He is clean now and has been for a long time but he was basically John Belushi back in the 70s and 80s.

Crime Beat with Nancy Hixt is pretty fascinating. She covers infamous Calgary crime stories. Only complaint is she speaks at a news broadcasting speed, I don't think she realizes that podcast requires a bit more tempo.

Sounds like she's talking really slow for a child. But her experiences and the content are really fascinating if you're a Calgary resident.

Speaking of Conan's podcast, his interview with Jimmy Kimmel was quite good also.

That was a great one. Loved how they found out some new things about each other live on the podcast. Kimmel "At one point ABC straight up told me that they were contemplating replacing me with you". Conan "What!!?? They never told me about that or asked me!".

Turns out it was probably ABC just using Conan as a threat in their negotiation, lol. So many great behind the scenes stuff of network bull****, though. Highly recommend it.

It was interesting to hear Kimmel talk about what a daily grind the show is for him. How he's not happy unless he's away from the show, or any form of work for that matter.

If you're into science and specifically the universe I can't highly recommend enough the Infinite Monkey Cage. It's a panel based podcast with the two hosts, usually one or two relevant scientists and a comedian.

It's very british but the set up is phenomenal. It doesn't drone on like a lot of learning podcasts. They keep things fresh, upbeat at times comedic, but always on point. And they have covered so many of the topics people love to contemplate.

https://player.fm/series/the-infinit...y-cage-1301297

Epsiodes include things like Parallel Universes, Building a Bionic Human, AI, How much more is their to discover in the Ocean/Universe, are we living in a simulation, mind vs brain etc.

The comedian brought in really makes it. British comedians tend to be well educated and well versed in a variety of topics compared to most American ones, but when they do step out of their depth and say something silly or wrong the scientists become hilariously dry and savage like only brits can.

Check it out, you learn a lot very quickly.

What I find fascinating is that despite all these talk shows looking like well oiled, smooth running nightly occurrences is that the one constant you get from hearing candidly from hosts is that they are daily chaotic experiences, with hundreds of people desperately trying to put everything together until the last minute, even years into a show.

Also that the hosts are often in a blurry, secluded world inside the eye of a talk show and don't really know how it comes off on camera or how things are going other than when they find out through the media.

jayswin, if you enjoy science, space and a bit of history check out BBC's 13 Minutes to the Moon.

It goes to show how on the nose The Larry Sanders Show was.

The Inside Conan podcast is also worth checking out. It's hosted by a couple of writers and they have various guests and behind the scenes people on. I like the recent episode with Jimmy Pardo, who used to do warmup for the show.

Yeah, started that one last week but only got one episode in after started monkey cage. I can't wait to go back. Loved seeing the first hand accounts of young guys being hired in houston, and how the atmosphere was like they were working at any old job.....except they were about to send men to the moon.

It took me until the last four words of your post to realize you weren't replying to me.

The best true crime podcast I've come across is Small Town Dicks. It features the detectives that were involved in the cases, and has extensive interview and scene recordings. It is very good.
