Great responses so far guys, keep 'em coming!
I'll admit right off the bat that I tend not to listen to audio dramas, at least not in podcast form. I honestly don't know why this is. I have nothing against them in general, but I guess, to me, when I listen to podcasts, I'm looking for reviews, or other nonfiction content.
A few of my favorites include:
The Hardcore Self help Podcast. Listeners write in questions about mental health, and a psychologist answers them, but he's really laid back, down-to-earth, and isn't afraid to let out a few curse words. I really like his style and approach.
Curiosity Daily. For awhile, I was really into the Curious app, which I think I wrote about some time ago on this forum, but over time my interest in that kind of fizzled out. I don't think this podcast is affiliated with that app in any way, but it's similar. You get about a 10-minute episode each day which gives you two or three random facts about various subjects. I also like Brain Stuff for this reason, but the reason that one isn't getting its own paragraph is that it tends to have a lot of ads, which sucks.
Disgraceland. Ever wanted a deep dive history lesson on musicians who either died under mysterious circumstances or living hard in general, or caused others to die under such circumstances? If so, check this one out, you won't regret it.
Clockwise. One of the very few tech podcasts I still listen to, I like this one because of the hosts' commitment to keep all episodes under a half an hour in length. Besides, they aren't either super pompous or just so dry that you could use it as a means to fall asleep at night like some of the tech presenters I've heard. They usually cover three pertinent tech-related topics of the week. Honorable mention here is WSJ's Tech news Briefing, I like them too.
Skeptoid. This podcast can really only be described as bullshit busting, although I don't think that's a term the host would have come up with. If misconceptions about a topic or event in history abound, you'll probably find an episode about it here. The one caveat about this show is that, for some reason, you have to pay for a subscription if you want to listen to anything past the 50 most current episodes. That's a bit of a downer, doubly so because I can't for the life of me figure out how to subscribe through the website. It doesn't seem to be accessible.
The Upgrade. This podcast is produced by Lifehacker, so you know it's good. Ever wondered how to tell if you're dating a psychopath? How about what microdosing is, and how to do it? How about alternative ways to view/treat alcoholism? These are just a few of the episodes I've recently listened to, and there are a lot more to pick from.
I think that's probably enough for now, those are the ones I actively follow at the moment, anyway. As you can see, I tend to prefer podcasts which aren't super lengthy. My concentration and attention span these days doesn't really allow me to listen to stuff that's an hour or more in length.
The glass is neither half empty nor half full. It's just holding half the amount it can potentially hold.
