History of Rome - guy tells the story of Rome, from Romulus and Remus to the death of the last Western Emperor, in a couple of hundred 20-30 minute episodes. (The best podcast)

Thinking Sideways - a podcast about unsolved mysteries, usually true crime.

Generation Why - True crime

Been listening to some of the Washington Post's series on American Presidents.

Cover-Up - a six part series about Ted Kennedy and the Chappaquiddick incident.

Gladiator - the Boston Globe's 10-part series on Aaron Hernandez' life and crimes.

*Casefile (Australian)

*Someone Knows Something (Canadian)

*The Teachers Pet (Australian)

True crime buffs here could only enjoy The Teachers Pet.

The case centres around a rugby (football) player turned high school teacher, his missing wife, and his high school student lover. In a nutshell, the wife goes missing without a trace and the 16 year old school student, who the teacher has already been having an affair with, moves in to the family home and the teacher's bedroom, only 2 days later.

The disappearance happened about 38 years ago. The school teacher husband, and presumed murderer, was only arrested recently and coincidental his bail application hearing is today.

Jim Florentine Podcast. The guy has epic, ATG rants just destroying stupid internet shit. My favorite was his rant on the "Man Cave" and "Fantasy Football."

One that really sickened me was his experience camping. He fucking hates camping, and he goes in deep on it. I'll tell the story right here because it was his most memorable experience. He went camping with his hot GF, and while they were hiking, she tells him to stop and she goes behind a tree. He thought she was just taking a piss, so when she comes back, she moves on. He needed to take a piss so he goes to the same location she just came from. He said there was just a pile of shit that looked like wrapped up elephant turds!!! He was so fucking disgusted that he couldn't look at her the same again. He couldn't imagine that huge thing coming out of this tiny girl! :rofl

He explained it so damn well it made me dry-heave. I can't do it justice. His new stuff has been really miss, but when he first started it, I couldn't get enough of it. His stories are fucking crazy.

Surprised people enjoy listening to learning podcasts. I think it's because of my career choice, but I want to turn off my brain for as long as possible during my long commutes to school. I'd rather not get a historical lecture.

I fucking love the magic hour and from Brooklyn to the world podcasts with paulie malignaggi and Peter cards, but he’s stopped doing them. Nobody knows boxing like Paulie, or at least nobody verbalises it the way he does, so it was a shame.

I don't consider my history podcasts to be learning material. It's just someone telling a story.

Used to listen to Nuthouse and Bunce.

Bunce gets on my nerves after a while. I don't mind reading his stuff though. In fact, just finished reading his book 'Big Fat Short History of British Boxing' - which is a pretty good read.

The Partially Examined Life - https://partiallyexaminedlife.com/

A great philosophy podcast, very in-depth but pretty free-form because it's just a discussion among the different hosts.

The Panpsycast Philosophy Podcast - https://thepanpsycast.com/panpsycast/

Similar to PEL, but the hosts are English lol. Somewhat shorter than PEL as well.

History of Philosophy Without Any Gaps - https://historyofphilosophy.net/

Much shorter than the two above, and simply has one host (Peter Adamson) relating the details of different philosophers, different periods and different ideas. Extremely wide-ranging, but pretty much only covers the basics (each episode is only about 20-25 mins). Unllike PEL it is very precise and to the point, just a different approach because it doesn't go into that much depth.

BBC In Our Time - https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006qykl

Also love this, they get various academics on to talk about history, science, philosophy, art, religion and so on. Hosted by Melvyn Bragg who can be a bit smug and annoying at times, but it covers a huge amount of topics. I always listen to these on my walk to work.

I hated the Bunce book DB. It just felt like loads of paper articles stuck together and him bragging how he went to this fight and this fight and how he met this fighter and the other one.

Steve Bunce talks too much on BN. Doesn't give Barry or Steve Lillis much chance to get a word in.

If I had paid starting price money for it I'd be disappointed, but I picked it up at a second-hand shop for $2 or $3. It does lack content though.

I got mine for 50p plus £2.00 postage.

I don't throw books away, but if I did his would be the first in line.

I don't do Twitter very much as I think it's like Facebook, something for 11 year-old girls...but when I tweeted (is that the correct terminology?) Steve Bunce to call him a cunt for some ridiculous comment he made in the press I was banned in a heartbeat.


Don't dish it out Steve if you can't take it back.

One good one I have been listening to lately is "The End Of The World With Josh Clark." Ten episodes, all dealing with a different way that humanity could end. One episode on the Great Filter, one about cosmological disasters like meteors or gamma rays, one about AI, etc etc. Good stuff. They are well produced, it's just one guy speaking and he has a pleasing radio voice and strikes a good balance between not too dry, and not too lowbrow. Would recommend.
