Some of us would prefer some form of ‘talk radio’ to music while we’re working out. Welcome to the Podcast Era! Now talk is more varied and more interesting than ever before.
Put Your Hands Together
Cameron Esposito and Rhea Butcher take you to the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater for an hour to ninety minutes of live stand-up comedy.
Who better to host a podcast on etiquette in a rapidly-changing world? Direct descendants (great-great-grandchildren) of Emily Post! Those are some polite bloodlines.
The Friend Zone
Dustin, Fran and Assanté take you on a tour of self-improvement and the ins and outs of modern relationships. The average show runs an hour and forty minutes,
Girl on Guy
For an hour and a half, comedienne Aisha Tyler is joined by some Hollywood luminary. Then the drinking begins – on air. It gets better and better and better…
The Secular Buddhist
This is a fine show for Western converts to Buddhism, or for those just circling and taking notes. As the title suggests, it discusses Buddhism in a way free of its Eastern religious trappings.
You Must Remember This
45 minutes of wonderfully researched stories of Old Hollywood. You’ll be mesmerized hearing these stories of screen legends and the strange worlds they inhabited.
This is a great series about real life – and how it can be stranger than anything crafted in fiction. Add in some well-chosen musical selections and you’ve got a ‘This American Life’ for the Podcast Teens.
Tune in for 30 minutes, get well-wrought creepy tales from the edge of reality. This really gets you going. You’ll know what you’re training to fight – or run away from.
WTF With Marc Maron
This is an excellent way to hear artists talking, at length and at depth, about what makes artists tick. An hour and a half.
Ask a Clean Person
Who’d have thought there was so much to talk about concerning cleaning? Not only is there a world of topics, but the right host – in this case, Jolie Kerr – can make mildew removal fascinating. Trust us on this.
This weird little show can be nearly an hour, or it can be five minutes. It has a nose for the odd detail and a commitment to being entertaining.
How Did This Get Made?
This is the ultimate for fans of bad movies. Because every bad movie is bad in its own way. Now you’ll get to be the Hollywood insider finding out what went wrong with your favorite turkey.
