Echoing My Favorite Murder – if you’re a stickler for accuracy, it might not be for you, but Karen and Georgia are hysterical. 

Terrible, Thanks for Asking – This one is awesome, but a bit of an emotional roller coaster. The premise is basically that sometimes, bad things happen and it’s okay to say so. That hiding grief or pretending everything is okay isn’t always an option, nor an obligation. Intermittently tear-jerking and hilarious.

Atlanta Monster – This is a true crime podcast that focuses on the missing and murdered children in and around Atlanta in the late 70’s and early 80’s I had never even heard about this unil this podcast, but it was super compelling and I feel like I learned a ton.

Someone Knows Something – This is an investigational podcast out of Canada. The host has been following up on old cases for years and this follows his ongoing efforts. 

Pop Culture Happy Hour – I love this for new entertainment recommendations. They talk about music, movies, TV and the panelists are smart and funny. 

Bullseye – This one is interview format. Host Jesse Thorn is a really engaging personality who gets some amazing guests. It’s sort of like Fresh Air, without Terry Gross who I find insufferable. Actors, musicians, artists, directors – he has excellent taste in subjects and a real infectious enthusiasm for what he’s doing. Love this one.

Revisionist History – Malcom Gladwell wrote The Tipping Point and this is a sort of sociological survey in podcast form. One episode was about how they changed McDonald’s fries and what a bummer that is. Smart and interesting. 

The New Yorker Fiction Podcast – It only comes out once a month (though there are years of archives, and I can’t recommend highly enough starting from the beginning there are just SO many good ones) They ask an author they’ve published to come and read a short story by another author that has also been printed in the New Yorker. I have been exposed to some incredible stories I would never have come across otherwise.  

Those are some of my favorites, and a lot of my others have already been mentioned: This American Life, Radiolab, S-Town. Definitely all worth checking out.

I’m not that into podcasts, but Last Podcast On The Left is really good.

hikingbride :   StacyLynn313 :   wolfeyes :  YES to these PPs suggesting My Favorite Murder. It’s really the only reason I listen to podcasts. 

I also enjoyed S-Town and Serial if you are into true crime. I can’t say I’d recommend Last Podcast on the Left…one too many rape jokes for me….

I’m throwing in True Crime Obsessed. They review true crime docs and they are AWESOME.

My fave podcasts are Beautiful/Anonymous as well as Yo, Is This Racist?

If you like Jonathan Van Ness from Queer Eye, he has a podcast called Getting Curious which is delightful!

Dirty John is great if you like true crime. I never really got into Atlanta Monster but did start listening to Felonious Florida but haven’t had a chance to finish it. Same with Crime Town.

If you like Serial, Undisclosed takes the Season 1 case into more detail.

In addition to the true crime podcasts mentioned earlier, I like Generation Why as well. They cover a different murder/mystery/etc every episode.

I’m obsessed with Guys We F***ed. There are hundreds of episodes and each one is super interesting and they have great guests on. 

Also just started listening to This is Why You’re Single.

buzzerbeater :  If you are still interested in the Serial story about Adnan, listen to Undisclosed as PP suggested. It was started by Rabia and a few other lawyers who started digging into the details. There have been more developments in the case since the end of Serial. Another pod that digs in is Truth and Justice with Bob Ruff. Both start out with sound issues but it gets better as they got some funding.
