There's of course the Adam Carolla Show, along with the whole pantheon of podcasts from Carolla Digital, got one about building houses, another on racing/cars, the Adam and Dr. Drew Show, Reasonable Doubt with Mark Geragos.

Beyond that, Dan Carlin's Hardcore History is pretty good if you like history. Just stumbled on one called Eastern Border by a guy in Latvia that focuses on the history of the Soviet Union. It's a bit more low budget, being essentially a guy in his livingroom with a pile of books.


I used to be a daily listener but the quality of the ACS has really gone downhill...Adam seems angry all the time and not in a funny way and Gina is torture on the ears with her noises and idiotic comments.


Ace Man is a rich white dude living in southern California, you'd be angry all the time too.

But yeah, Gina Grad I am not a fan of. She's not a bad person or anything, I just sort of get a "ME TOO!" vibe from her comments, that one dude's girlfriend who has to be there, and tries to be one of the guys.

I like Hey do you remember for movies. I found Science Fiction film podcast to be good depending on which of the hosts are participating. If you like fantasy football the Fantasy Footballers are good and just plain fun to listen to. I havent found a shooting podcast thats truly done it for me yet.

Jocko Podcast, Joe Rogan and Tim Ferris are very long so, if you've got some long drives ahead or, need some air filler, not to mention the good content, give them a try. I don't listen to every episode but, the ones I've heard I've enjoyed.

John Batchelor Show- More conservative current news, also does book reviews, space exploration and military news.
Freakanomics- Author of the best selling book puts their economic googles on for more studies and guests...left leaning.
Midrats- Navy bloggers discuss maritime security issues
Dan Carlin has three podcasts now: Hardcore History is his most popular, its a deep dive into history; Common Sense is his take on current events; and his newest is Hardcore History Addendum which is historical odds/ends.
SOFREP Radio- Podcast extension of the website, special operations news and special interests.
FieldCraft Survival- Two former SF talk about a variety of topics and how-to issues.

I listen to The Ben Shapiro Show and The Reason Podcast daily.

I also like The Rubin Report, and The Waking Up Podcast (Sam Harris). I don't agree with Harris on issues of politics, and nobody else here will either, for the most part, but he has some really interesting conversations regarding religion, morals, the mind, AI, and stuff like that. He's got a great command of the language and an exceptional ability to explain and illustrate ideas, IMO. He's criticisms of Islam is central to my current position on the matter.

For those interested in national security/ foreign policy issues I'd recommend trying Target America/ The National Security Podcast, by JJ Green. I recently caught a radio interview with him and was impressed enough that I listened to one of his recent podcasts regarding the U.S. diplomats in Cuba that have reportedly been attacked with a sonic device and found it interesting.

I could do without the overly dramatic intro music and voice, but as far as the actual guests that Green is able to interview and the content itself, I think it is worth the time to listen.

I've become a big fan of Dan Carlin's Hardcore History podcasts and am trying to work my way through them. I've read the Freakanomics book and really enjoyed it, I wasn't aware there was a podcast but I'll be giving it a try.

As far as John Batchelor goes, I haven't caught a podcast by him, but I have listened to his radio show and have a "love/hate" thing for his programs. Although not always so, he does frequently bring on some really interesting authors and guests on a variety of topics that I enjoy learning about. I particularly liked his shows on the Donner Party, MacArthur, the former NASA engineer, the true originator of "moving pictures" and the survivor from the Hiroshima atomic blast. As you mentioned, everything from history to music to science and space exploration. I generally like his guests well enough, but Batchelor himself annoys the hell out of me because he frequently first prompts his guests on a question regarding their book or topic, but then hurriedly interrupts them and tells a long portion of the story himself, frequently cutting off the guests and their explanations. Also, he has a penchant for playing incredibly dramatic musical pieces as intros and exits to the show during commercial breaks and while I don't mind most of the music he allows the music to overlap the actual interview and it plays over the conversation between him and his guest frequently for a couple minutes, preventing me from hearing what is being said...

... are his podcasts the same way?

Also, I can't quite get a bead on what his political leanings are, I've caught some programs in which he seems to lean Right and others in which he seems to lean Left. He seems to morph into adapting what the topic of the book and the author believe.
