I spend a pretty decent amount of time driving, running and working out at the gym, so (audio) podcasts are my lifeblood. As a longtime podcast listener (since the Daily Source Code days), my go-to rotation has changed a lot over the years, but here’s my current lineup:
You Look Nice Today: My current favorite, by a wide margin. The guys are back on a monthly schedule, every February 2nd (droppin’ it on the deuce). It’s like Christmas morning every time I see that there’s a new episode.
Back to Work: Merlin’s continual gold aside, his relationship with Dan is the heart and soul of the show.
This American Life: This is sort of like choosing The Beatles as your favorite band (too easy). Obviously a legendary show, though I actually find myself skipping most episodes these days, unless I’ve run out of everything else and have a long drive. I think that speaks to the quality of the other podcasts above more than anything else.
Note: I recently switched to Instacast for managing/listening to podcasts (from the stock iOS “Music” app). So angry I didn’t switch earlier.
