My Favourite Podcasts: New Finds

Here’s all my previous podcast posts, where I gathered up my favourites. With themes like space, robots, queerness, illness, science, productivity, books and mythology.

Supercomputer

  • By Matthew Cassinelli (tech expert, especially Siri shortcuts) and Alex Cox (who also has the Do by Friday, The robot and the unicorn and Roboism podcasts)
  • “Making sense out of a mess of technology”, which is true as I’m interested in tech, but haven’t taken the deep dive needed to understand a lot of the automation, Siri shortcuts and things they discuss before this.

History on Fire

  • By university history professor Daniele Bolelli
  • Human stories from history, told in a fascinating way, even for those of us who can’t bring ourselves to appreciate history classes
  • Fav episodes: #24 Pirate queen #39-42 Joan d’Arc ( currently listening to this, it’s so fascinating)

Off the pill podcast

  • By Ryan Higa (youtube) and friends, sometimes guests
  • General type of talking podcast, discussing the Internet and social media, current events, controversies, stories from their career and life together, etc.

Space Cave

  • By David Huntsberger, a comedian
  • This is not a podcast I listen to every episode on because it spans such a broad type of guests, but the episodes I have heard is so interesting and that means there will probably be a topic catching your eye if you go through the titles quickly
  • Fav episodes: #51-52 Material science #71-72 Electrical engineering #127-128 Electrical engineering #135-136 Quantum physics

Delete this

  • By Hank Green (author, nerdfighteria, vlogbrothers) and Katherine Green
  • Where they go through Hank’s (and sometime Katherine’s) twitter feed, talking about how to not use social media, interact with others and how the social media affects us. Also sharing cute twitter moments, and CATS, to brighten the mood.
  • Fav episode: #38 The perineum of kindness (with guests)

      Alex Cox is a great talker and seems like a great person in general and they’re a great duo! Podcasts is my thing (obviously, besides books) and at this point I listen to too many, hah

      I never really watched Higa that much, but would definitely recommend the episodes with guests that he’s known for a while, they talk about them beginning on youtube quite a lot

    I want to listen to more podcasts. The one I listen to is specific to writing and authors, but these sound great!

      I really love them for when you want to learn, relax or have something on in the background while doing tasks, because they require less focus than books. I have a list of book podcasts I like here https://aquapages.wordpress.com/2018/03/16/my-favourite-podcasts-books-and-mythology/ and several other recs here: https://aquapages.wordpress.com/tag/podcast/

      The ultimate podcast that’s easy to get into and completely captivating is the very popular S-town podcast about a guy that gets in contact with a journalist about concerns around a murder in his small town, only for the journalist to uncover a huge other life story of this eccentric, depressed clock-maker. It was really suspensful, entertaining and made me reconsider what life-choices I make !!
