So I love podcasts. I listen to about 20-30 a week, and since I'm relatively new to them, I can 'binge listen' often.
Here are some of my favorites:
The BS Report
-Bill Simmons podcast, always good, sometimes just about amazing.
-Picture Rush Limbaugh's bombastic delivery, coupled with a top-shelf historian doing a survey course of all the most interesting parts of human history, with great nuance and detail you just don't get in basic history courses. And every podcast is told like a story , not like a lecture, and he doesn't spare the gruesome parts. If you want a departing point, start with the multiparty series detailing the fall of Rome. It is very informative , but way more entertaining.
-Dan Harmon (creator of community) is pretty much an insane person, and a unapologetic alcoholic, and a bit of a jerk. He's also hilarious, vulnerable, and genuine. These podcasts are need worship at its finest, and top notch comedy. Lots of special guests, and a huge library online. Suggested you start with episode 1.
