I'm listening to season 2 episode 1 right now. We'll see if this season is just as good as last year.

There's only been one episode and it was basically all set up, but the story they're trying to tell this season is very complex, controversial and complicated. If they do even half as good a job as they did last season, it'll be well worth hearing.

So This American Life and Serial just released a new podcast called S-Town (short for Shit-Town). They set it up as trying to get the truth about a murder that had allegedly been covered up in a rural county in Alabama. Without going into too much detail, it doesn't stay there for long. They released all seven episodes at once on Tuesday and I'm already four deep and completely hooked. Think Serial Season 1, but if instead of following only the case, they had applied that level of digging to the entire community. I highly recommend it.

Thanks for the rec. I listened to the first episode this morning and I was absolutely entertained by the world of the Alabama fellow. Interested to see where it goes!

The second episode totally pulls the rug out from under you. It didn't end up being anything like I thought it would, but I finished it just a few hours after I made that last post.

S-Town was one of the best podcasts I've ever listened to. Thanks for the rec. It was brilliant.

I recently binged Up and Vanished. It's about an unsolved disappearance of a woman in small town Ocilla, GA. In a way, it reminded me of S-Town. Definitely listen to it if you've got time, some interesting twists happen. It's not nearly as well produced, directed, etc as S-Town, but still quite good.

I'm from Birmingham, but I never knew anything about Woodstock or Bibb County... But, yeah. It's the best crime-related podcast that I know. The section about horology and clock restoring was incredibly fascinating.

I do love his podcast. His standup does absolutely nothing for me. The MMA stuff does nothing for me. But he consistently has incredible guests and thought-provoking conversations.

The stuff with Jordan Peterson, Sam Harris, etc. is really compelling.

While the Joey Diaz/Redban/Duncan Trussell stuff is normally pretty funny.

Read this article about the use of music in podcasts that uses several of the podcasts we've talked about in this thread as examples. I enjoyed it a lot.

[Only registered users can see links.]

Also, there's a podcast that premiered last week that I want to recommend called Ear Hustle. It's produced, hosted and talks about the lives of inmates at San Quentin. The first episode is a relatively light hearted one about the importance of your cell-mate. I don't get the impression that they're all going to be that easy going. But it's a fascinating insight into that world. Highly recommended.

I've been listening to podcasts more than ever over the past couple months. Here's the ones I enjoy, and I'm curious for any recommendations anyone else has, be it music, politics, sports, self-help, whatever.

My favorites right now-
1. Bulletproof Radio- hosted by Dave Asprey, founder of Bulletpoof Diet and Bulletproof Coffee. He's big into "bio-hacking" and has a lot of interesting guests talking about ways to improve your health, brain, performance, etc. (as an aside, I've been following to some extent the bulletproof diet for the past few weeks and have been losing weight and feeling fantastic).
2. 10% Happier- hosted by Dan Harris, ABC News Anchor who infamously had a panic attack on live TV, which ultimately led him to discover meditation. He talks to people who meditate, about meditation and other related topics (guests range from the Dalai Lama himself to celebrities). Meditation has been an important part of my life for the last couple of years, so I love this one.
3. Pardon My Take- a lot lighter than the first 2, a Barstool Sports podcast that my 19 year old son turned me on to.
4. Starting 9- a new Barstool Sports one, focused on baseball. If you want to hear them talk baseball, and also things such as ass-eating with Christian Yelich, while Dallas Braden occasionally pauses to rip a bong hit, you may like this one.

Some others I occasionally check out-
Fantasy football pods- either the ESPN Matthew Berry one or Pro Footballl Focus Fantasy with Jeff Radcliffe.
Brokedown Podcast- a monthly Dead podcast I recently checked out.
Helping Friendly Podcast- Phish. Have checked out on occasion.

The main reason I wrote this was b/c I was thinking before there must be a good rock music podcast that had a Tom Petty episode this past week, but I'm not aware of any.

If you got any podcasts you love, let us know.

Steve Hyden's Celebration Rock Podcast did a pretty good tribute to Tom Petty. That podcast has more of a music critic perspective. The Great Albums reposted their episode of "Damn The Torpedos". Both are pretty good.

I'm not crazy about Sound Opinions, mostly because I think Jim Derogatis is a shit critic, but their most recent episode was a Petty remembrance.

Funny you mention that, I ended up listening to that one randomly after my 1st post today, based on a quick google search. It was ok, had some excerpts from an interview with him in '03 which was cool, but pretty much all things I had heard already in the Running Down A Dream doc, etc.
