We've had a few posts like this before, but it's been a while, and hey, who doesn't like a good podcast?

What's on your iPod, Hubski? Do people even own iPods anymore? Is podcasting killing radio, or keeping it alive?

Lately, I've been digging the hell out of a trifecta of comedy podcasts:

Sooo Many White Guys, in which comedian Phoebe Roberts interviews cool people who (mostly) aren't white guys. (My fav guest so far was Bassem Youssef, but they're all great.)

The Rad Dudecast, which is stupid, frequently offensive, and pretty funny, but just had a really great episode about one of the hosts' time in psych wards & mental hospitals.

The Hilarious World of Depression, a show about the relationship between depression and comedy-- this one's really big for me personally because it's helped me understand my own depression and how it's linked to my love of standup. From the show description: "[The podcast] is a chance to gain some insight, have a few laughs, and realize that people with depression are not alone and that together, we can all feel a bit better." Listen from the beginning for maximum insight.

I've been a huge fan of Hardcore History with Dan Carlin for years. He's become the standard by which I judge all other podcasts. Detailed and intensively researched epics on ancient (and modern) history.

Preet Bharara is a fantastic listen too. Expert commentary on the political times from the US Attorney from the southern district of New York - fired by Trump for not returning an unprofessional phone call.

The Pope's Long Con is a fantastic bit too. Really deep investigative journalism published right around the time of Rep. Dan Johnson's death. Dive into some weird Kentucky political lore and the fascinatingly and pathologically bizarre history of the "The Pope".
