Although I sample a ridiculously large number of podcasts, these are the select few that I subscribe to and listen to regularly. I’ve presented them in order of “fewest unplayed episodes remaining” (which suggests how much I like each one). Again, simply being on this list means I’m a regular listener—don’t avoid the ones at the bottom—they are excellent.
- Freakonomics Radio
- NPR: Planet Money Podcast
- This American Life
- WNYC’s Radiolab
- Omega Tau (available in English and German)
- Stuff You Should Know
- The Moth Podcast
- The Skeptics Guide to the Universe
I was going to write a lengthy description/review for each but, let’s be honest, you weren’t going to read it. Just go listen to some of these!
