Podcast Recommendation Thread

Taking the guidelines from the great recommendation thread in movies/tv:
If you're giving a recommendation - Clearly state what it is and what it's all about.

If you're asking for a recommendation - Clearly state your likes, dislikes, and if certain genres or styles do not appeal to you.


Just to get started, I think a lot of you would probably like many of the podcasts on the network maximumfun.org.
The network has some shows more focused on comedy, and some more focused current events/progressive political issues.

I never really got into any podcasts because I could never figure out when to listen to them. They don't work as background when I'm doing something else because I tend to miss half of the conversation and it feels weird to just sit on the couch listening.

That said, someone on these forums (Moo, I believe) recommended "Hello from the Magic Tavern" and I was instantly hooked. I also found that I can listen to it while ironing without a loss of quality for either activity.

The crazy premise of that kind of reminds me of another podcast, The Useless Majors.
To sum it up briefly: people get superpowers from radioactive college degrees.
Though they've been pretty inactive as of late, the last new episode was early march, and before that was one in september.

I'm a bit behind on my downloaded podcasts, because I have a backlog of (linearly broadcast) radio, already.

But (being on both of these lists) I think that More Or Less is something I think that forumites might appreciate (or appreciate the opportunity to critique).

And of course No Such Thing As A Fish.

(Others on my personal list with a broad interest: Dwarf Fortress Talk*, The Infinite Monkey Cage, The Political Party, TED Talks (audio), BBC Inside Science, Comedy On Vinyl... * - nothing new for several years, but I'm still a bit behind.)

Cortex is definitely a great podcast. CGPGrey and Myke Hurley topics mainly centered around being self employed, schedules, workflow, etc.
Of course, if I'm mentioning that, I should of course bring up Grey's other podcast, Hello Internet. Which is more of a general 2 guys talking type of podcast with random topics (flags, planes, movies, etc.)
