What do you want to listen to?

The Rogan Experience (Joe Rogans podcast) is fucking incredible: hilarious, smart, and beyond fascinating - really digs deep into the rabbit hole at times & discusses conspiracy theories, drugs, life, ancient alien type stuff...Just an all around bad ass podcast. Never sticks to the same format

To get started, I'd highly suggest listening to the most recent one with Duncan Trussel, which was in mid August. The 2 have awesome rapport & I always learn something new I listen to them talk

A few others I have listened to

NPR Fresh air
Adam Carolla
Stuff you missed in history class
BS Report (been around forever obviously)
Grantland has some decent ones

Then you need to go and listen to a Rogan podcast asap. Any episode will suffice. They are long (usually between 2-3 hours long so you can't listen at work) but every second is entertaining.

I have been giving 923 a weekly tryout. Thus far I kinda like it better than WKRN. WKNR's schtick is getting old and annoying.

The Ricky Gervais Show. Funniest podcast in history. Also, Stuff You Should Know is both cool and interesting.

- The Adam Carolla Show is a daily podcast with the Aceman, Adam Carolla, and it is by far the best podcast I listen to. Carolla is a one-man rant assembly line and pretty much everything he says makes sense. It's definitely not for the politically correct weenies out there, but even they would have a hard time saying he's not interesting or hilarious.

- Sklarbro Country is a weekly podcast hosted by twin comedians Randy and Jason Sklar. They have as good a rapport as you'd imagine twins would, get great, funny guests, and have a guy on every week who does killer impressions of Tiger Woods, Jerry Jones, Racist Vin Scully, and others. Great show.

- Doug Loves Movies is a weekly podcast hosted by Doug Benson and focuses on movies. Doug gets mostly comedians as guests, with the occasional A-List star like Jon Hamm. Doug's a huge stoner and you can tell, but he's surprisingly quick-witted for such a massive buddha-head.

- Kevin Pollack's Chat Show is another weekly show. It's sort of like Charlie Rose, except it's way longer and funnier. Kevin's kind of a blowhard, but he's extremely well-prepared, funny, and gets his subjects to talk. I got into it because I heard Kevin Pollack on Sklarbro Country last week, and it seemed worth a try. If you were into LOST, make sure to give the episode with Damon Lindelof a tumble.

- Breaking Bad Insider Podcast is really only for Breaking Bad fans. They have the Creator, Vince Gilligan, on every week and another producer serves as the host. Bryan Cranston is on a lot, but when he's not they try to have other actors from the show on. If you love Breaking Bad, you'll love this podcast.

Podcasts get me through my brutal commute and work every day and they come highly recommended. Hope this helped!

Sklarbro bro's are funny as hell but I can only handle the two in tiny doses

Breaking Bad Podcast is great, glad to have recommended it. LOST had a podcast too, which was great as well but in a different way. It's always nice to hear producers and writers talk about the episode a day or two after it airs.

Also, regarding Ricky Gervais, are those free now or do you still have to pay?

Actually I do record it, and we have done 3 episodes. 4th one is in the pipelines and going to be recorded before conference play in college football.
