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.

Lately I’ve been falling asleep to The History of Philosophy Without Any Gaps. I’m 60 episodes in and have only gotten to the Stoics.

The Paris Review Podcast is great for poetry and short stories. I think they also pointed me to LeVar Burton Reads.

Other than that I follow a bunch of F1 podcasts, to keep up with the gossip in the off-season.

Oh, and Snedtänkt, the best podcast in Swedish you will probably never listen to. Topics include the subculture of Gothenburg, Jules Verne, 70’s pornos and anxiety sex, pilsner movies, and the dark history of amusement parks.
