:ph34r: :ph34r: :ph34r: Have listened to a few MAFS podcasts and quite liked them.
( Have not been able to get into talking / audio books ) so I thought I'd ask for any faves please!

Have googled and so many come up - need to narrow it down. Maybe some positive helpful , motivating ones. tia  :heart: :heart: :heart:

I am a Nanna and enjoy Richard Fidler's Conversations. Tall Tales and True is another good one.

Most of the rest of mine are running or work related.

I'm up to episode 3 of missing Richard Simmons, im looking forward to seeing where it goes.

Just finished listening to 'in the dark' it was excellent, but does have some graphic descriptions of a crime against a child in one episode.

Also Serial season 1 is great, and This American Life I listen to weekly.

I stopped listening to the Richard Simmons one halfway through Ep 3. Wasn't for me but it seems to have really grabbed a massive audience out of nowhere.

I like my favourite murder, sword and scale, up and vanished, the black tapes, lime town.  Mostly true crime, mystery and horror so not quite the same as MAFS

#12 Fresh Start

Well May We Say - lefty politics

Like I'm A Six Year Old - Tom Ballard has guests, mostly political or current issues

Comedy
The Dollop - American history by comedians
TOFOP - Wil Anderson and Charlie Clausen, just chatter mostly
FOFOP - Wil's spin off when Charlie had to stop TOFOP for a while due to Home and Away. Usually comedian guests.

Some of the podcasts I'm subscribed to:
Invsibilia
Criminal
Radio lab
Death, sex & money
99% invisible
2 dope queens
Revisionist History
Song Exploder

Serial and this American life have a new pod cast called S-town that will be coming out later this month. The whole series will be released at once so you can binge-listen.

#14 Weirdly Sane

Posted 20 March 2017 - 06:34 PM

Criminal
Crime Writers on Serial
The Law Report
Chat 10 Looks 3
Scamapalooza
Missing Richard Simmons
Offshore
All in the Mind
Crimetown

I tried My Dad Wrote a Porno but didn't really take to it
Was listening to Undisclosed for ages but I find it takes too much concentration, it has so much detail I tend to zone out

I'll usually try anything that the CrimeWriters recommend though!

Well, I guess I'm also a Nanna. Richard Fidler is my favourite podcast!

another that I enjoy is Peter Adamson's 'History of Philosophy Without Any Gaps'. It sounds boring, or maybe a little bit too niche, from the title. However, Peter Adamson makes it really fascinating, and I'm sure his podcasts actually have quite wide appeal. He also has really interesting guests from time to time, who are specialists in a certain area (eg a specialist researchers on Al-Ghazali, Gersonides and so many others). I highly recommend his podcasts for something a little bit different.

Great idea for a thread. the only ones I have listened to so far are Radio National - All in the Mind, Hack, Late Night Live - there is so much on there.

I am going to try some of the suggested ones by PPs.

#17 Wahwah

I love podcasts and always looking for recommendations

Faves include:

Tanis - fiction, mix between mythology and a bit sci-fi-ish. For people who liked Stranger Things or Lost or The OA on tv.

Pod Save America - ex White House Staffers (Dems) talking about American politics with inside knowledge and a dose of humour and self mockery

Hidden Brain and All in the Mind for psychology and human behaviour

Serial, Converations with Richard Fidler, Philosopher's Zone, On the News.

How did people find the second season of Serial? I could not get into it in the same way as I did the first.

#19 Fluer

Posted 20 March 2017 - 07:40 PM

I listened to second season of serial, but I didn't enjoy it anywhere near as much as season 1. It didn't have me thinking and questioning the outcome like season 1 did.

ok this is a bit embarrassing but how do podcasts work?
do you download them from the internet and then somehow save them on your phone and listen to them whenever?

or do you need internet to listen to them?

does it use a lot of data?

I've listened to a few from abc radio - there's a really good australian history one called something like rum and rebels (notwithstanding questions above! have only ever listened at home with home wifi)

#21 Snorkmaiden

Posted 20 March 2017 - 08:04 PM

In addition to most of the above, I also listen to:

Call your girlfriend (2 best friends on opposite sides of the US chat)
James Valentine Head Room
The Heart
No Such thing as a fish
Lore
The Dirtbag Diaries

For anyone interested in crime:
Cancrime
They walk among us
Actual innocence
Sword and Scale

I read today there is a 3rd season of Serial coming called S-Town (march 28). I hope it's better than series 2.


maryanneK - I use itunes and have an ipod. Within itunes, search the itunes shop for podcasts, either download episodes to your account (click on the Get button), listen to them through itunes or subscribe and they download to your account automatically. Once I plug in my ipod, they sync across and delete once I've listen to them. I'm sure someone else more knowledgeable will explain how to do it on a phone! :-)

I download them using the podcasts app when connected to the wifi at work.

Currently listening to conversations, global pillage, the guilty feminist, tall tales and true, burn your passport, well may we say, the party room, ted talks, is it on, casefiles, and use sleep with me every night to fall asleep.

I have a long commute so listen to a lot of podcasts.

I have an android phone.

I use the Podcast app(by Evolve Podcasts) but there are plenty of podcast apps to choose from.  DH has an iphone and he uses itunes and the provided podcost app.

I often listen to them while I am getting dinner ready, long drives or doing something around the house that means I can work and use headphones at the same time.
