Podcast Roll, 2017

A couple years ago, I posted a list of the podcasts I follow. Here's an update on that.

  • 30 for 30
    • cool mini versions of the ESPN documentary films
  • FiveThirtyEight Elections
    • good, data-driven insight into all things political
  • Fresh Air
    • Terry Gross is a national treasure!
  • Hello Internet
    • It's just two YouTube dudes, Brady and Grey, talking, but I love it.
  • Hidden Brain
    • This show does a good job of taking both sociology and psychology seriously. Best of all, it knows the difference and has featured a lot of sociology recently.
  • Nancy
    • all things queer that you were afraid to ask
  • TED Radio Hour
    • sometimes hit or miss, but generally thought-provoking
  • Invisibilia
    • I am so ambivalent about this show. They ask sociological questions but tend to give psychological answers. Even when they are sociological, it's very armchair. I should probably unsubscribe.
  • On the Media
    • so, so good; so, so necessary
  • More Perfect
    • Learn more about SCotUS.
  • Reasonably Sound
    • philosophy via audio
  • Research on Religion
    • I have a lot of issues with this podcast. There is some good stuff here, but more often than not, the guests are Christianists and/or not sufficiently academic. The host is disappointingly uncritical. I should probably unsubscribe.
  • Song Exploder
    • a window into the songwriter's process
  • This American Life
    • This is a generally engaging show, but this year, in particular, they have been right on top of the pressing issues, most notably race.
  • Writer's Almanac
    • I start every day with poetry. Garrison Keillor is a national treasure!
  • WTF
    • Marc is an interesting guy. Not all of his guests interest me, but he has some gets.

  • The Annex
    • I just stumbled on this new sociological podcast on Twitter recently. I have yet to listen to an episode, but it looks promising so I thought I'd include it here at the end.
