    Hi friends,

    Last week, @Daisy K. shared some of her favorite anime shows, and we had a blast talking about all things anime. I thought it’d be fun to do a similar exchange, only this time, we’re talking about our favorite podcasts. As I mentioned in my intro, I love all kinds of podcasts, though my favorites are usually true crime and/or business/finance related.

    But the podcast I get most excited for is “My Favorite Murder.” It’s the best true crime podcast on the planet, and it’s hosted by two hilarious BFFs from Cali—and one from the same hometown as yours truly (!) It's grisly, it's smart, it's empathetic, sympathetic, and real af. Their catchphrase says it best: "Stay sexy and don't get murdered." I tend to agree. Here are some other recommendations from the team:

    @Brady R. - What It Takes
    "I've always been a fan of hearing other people’s stories. Whether it was listening to my grandparents tell stories about when they were kids or reading biographies about people who have influenced my life. What It Takes brings hour-long stories of visionaries in all different fields of work. One of my favorites is Jimmy Page: Guitar Hero." I'm a big music lover and have been listening to Led Zeppelin for as long as i can remember. Hearing people who knew Jimmy talk about the hours he'd spend in his room practicing is inspiring to say the least."

    @Kameron S - Crime Junkie
    “Right now I'm listening to 'Crime Junkie', a podcast about various true crime stories. It's a little strange when people hear you're a true crime enthusiast, as if you're suddenly going to go commit a crime. The reason I like to listen to this podcast is how law enforcement is able to piece together seemingly disconnected parts of a case and ultimately serve justice. Not all of the episodes end in resolution though, which helps you stay vigilant and always keep your eyes open. The hosts of the show are two best friends who are funny and weave together cohesive dark tales. Additionally, they provide 'life rules' based off of all the true crime reports they've read. My favorite life rule is, ‘Be weird. Be rude. Stay alive.’"

    @Kyle K. - Men in Blazers
    "I listen to a lot of podcasts. 'Men in Blazers' is one, although it’s not as comprehensive as the Guardian's Football Weekly, it does provide cultural insights into the English Premier League and certain things British that an American like me might often miss."

    And now, we’d love to hear all about your favorite podcasts. What do you listen to while you’re taking a shower, driving to work, cooking dinner, or doing chores around the house? Inquiring minds want to know!

    Awesome choices.

    I personally love comedy so I've been re listening to the old classic.
    "The ricky gervais show"
    [​IMG]

    If this show doesn't make you laugh nothing will.

    There was also this interesting podcast I can't remember the name of anymore :(
    It was about a group of old criminals who was now retired and they would talk about how they ran their hometown back in the day.

    The mafia, gangs, thugs and organized crimes were all part of the discussion with these different criminals.
    I'll try look for the name later.

    Anyway thanks for sharing your favorites, I might check one out later. :cool:

    If you love Podcasts, definitely check out Business Wars!

    They get you narrated stories about industry behemoths who fight each other. The presentation style is very captivating and entertaining and you learn some stuff.

    I loved the episodes about Red Bull vs. Monster Energy and Death Row Records vs. Bad Boy. There's other stuff as well, like Marvel vs. DC, Sony vs. Nintendo, Pepsi vs. Coke etc.

    if you are into crypto, startup, modern business, then i recommend zig zag podcast. the host is amazing, and podcast production is like you are watching a tv show.

    If you are all about hearing about freaks, geeks, snake bites and very very odd relationships, you have to listen to Love and Radio. While sometimes I think the sound mixing is a bit much, the stories are so weird and intriguing and true! My favorite one is called WWCD, about a guy who became the first publicly traded individual and made major life choices depending on what his "stockholders" voted on.

    Other incredible episodes
    - Eternity Through Skits and Waistcoats
    - Doing the No No
    - Greetings from Coney Island

    Just...give it a try.

    For football, rugby, Gaelic sports and sport in general you can't get much better than https://www.secondcaptains.com/

    https://thebuglepodcast.com/ is a must for satire and https://athleticomince.com/ is quite simply the funniest thing on planet earth.
    Also http://billburr.com/
    The Monday Morning Podcast, Bill ranting twice a week is no less than therapeutic.

    Heya,

    That's the web version of Pocket Casts.

    They have an app for the phone and you can also make a one time payment for the web version.

    It syncs with the app and you can listen on your browser. It's pretty great.

    Will listen to them.
    Try The Joe Rogan Experience and Ted Talks Daily.
    I also love Whiiskey Ginger with Andrew Santinio. It's a bit comedy but it's okay. Who doesn't wanna live longer.
