Default Podcast Suggestions

Hey all, looking for some podcast suggestions. I need 1) some very light podcasts for when I'm programming and can't pay too close attention and 2) some heavier ones for my commute. Ideally they'd be available on Spotify.

I'm already listening to the Cracked podcast here and there.

I'm listening to various political podcasts at the moment. The FiveThirtyEight Politics Podcast might fit your commuting needs.

If you're feeling brave, you could also try Brexitcast. It's a fairly light-hearted but very informative thing from a bunch of very well-connected BBC journalists, breaking down what would otherwise be a very dry and complicated set of negotiations.

If u like Cracked I'd highly recommend 99% invisible it's so goddamn good, radiolab is also sort of in the genre but 99 pi is the best of the "hey here's an interesting thing" pods,

Dan Carlin's Hardcore History is pretty ok white guy humanist pop history, The History of Rome podcast is really good programming listening because the dude's voice is very soothing and he does a good job at breaking down the like "classical history of Rome" which is a pretty cool thing to know a few things about.

Citations Needed (that's Citations with an s, Citation needed is a different pod) is the best american politics podcast I know of, it's media criticism so they usually comment on stories well after they're relevant but they really do their research and get great experts so every time you listen you get to find out everything you thought you knew was a lie and the world is garbage

Night Call is a good pop culture podcast it's new and done by a buncha former grantland writers

and Everybody should listen to all 10 episodes of Analyze Phish R.I.P Harris

I second this. I've been listening to this in my car lately. His new podcast Revolutions is really good, too.

my friend directed me a podcast called "Night Vale" recently.
dry humor, but fun

(admittedly, I do not listen to many podcasts, so can't be much help in this department ._.) ^__^;;

You could try out The Adventure Zone if you want to hear the McElroy dudes play D&D and don't mind hearing Griffin say "uhm" a million times.
