Podcasts I Listen To

I first discovered podcasts back in 2006. At work, I did a thing and it got recognized, and I was nominated for and won a recognition award for my hard work. Part of that award was an iPod. I had an iPod but it was a Nano, which only held about 2G of stuff, and what I mostly had on it were audiobooks. So here I was suddenly with an iPod Classic with 320G of storage. What would I do with all that storage?

I started slow. I had heard of these “pod-casts” (say it like someone tasting the word for the first time ever), but had no idea what they were. I searched and found something called Skepticality.

At the time, I was very much into the Skeptical community, and when I realized there were podcasts related to it, Skepticality wasn’t the only one, it was just the first of many. Then I discovered Grammar Girl. And not long after that, the obsession — nay, addiction — set in.

These days, when I’m engaged in activities during which writing would be dangerous or at the very least bad for me (driving, showering, working, exercise), I’m usually listening to podcasts. If you don’t know what a podcast is, what time frame have you traveled here from, and how did you find my page? Just kidding. I know podcasts are not necessarily common knowledge.

Podcasts are like radio shows that are recorded and can then be downloaded onto whatever device you like, and then listened to on your own schedule. Or they can be like audiobooks. Or videos. They can be strongly about a single topic or generally about whatever pops into the host(s)’s head(s). They can be entertaining or informative. Or they can be just two guys talking into microphones about nothing (picture Seinfeld, only it’s just Jerry and George or Kramer or Elaine sitting in a room talking for a period of time, and you’re watching / listening).

I listen to so many on so many varied topics that I’ve curated them into smart playlists by podcast, and again by smart playlist for subject matter, and again by smart playlist for length (sometimes I only have 10 minutes, and it’s nice to be able to go to my “< 10 minutes" playlist and go from there). What follows is my list of podcasts I subscribe to by subject matter, organized in the way I prioritize them for listening. And within each subject matter, the sort might change. From time to time. Alphabetic, usually, but don't be surprised if it's something else. :)


I have to tell you this last little bit, because it shows how my brain works. I try to make order out of chaos. Hence these lists. I keep track of them in a spreadsheet, which is how I first noticed that I had a lot of ‘True Crime’ podcasts, and that they needed their own subcategory. But the list on this site was made — painstakingly — by hand. Which meant I never updated it because doing that would take away time I could use writing listening to podcasts.

In a fit of annoyance, I thought, “I wish I had a way to automate the creation of the table!”

And that snide, oh-so-annoying voice in my head said, “Dummy. You’re a software engineer. You design software for a living. Capisce?” (I don’t know why my inner voice speaks with an Italian mobster dialect, but it does. Don’t judge me.)

So, I wrote a little program in C# that takes my Excel spreadsheet (kinda) and generates everything you see below, beginning with the “Podcasts, in order of ‘Importance.'” It counts them for me, arranges all the bold and italic and strike-through and the hovertext. Now I can just regenerate this page whenever I feel like it. And although I spent about twelve hours over the course of two days (Weekend days, I might add!) working on this to the exclusion of all else, it’ll only take about 10 minutes to output the spreadsheet and run the program to generate this page going forward. And 9 minutes 45 seconds of that 10 minutes is saving the individual sheets of the spreadsheet in a form my program can read. :)

Key

Entries will have the following form:

PodcastName {#ArchivedEpisodes} (CreatorIfKnown) [FrequencyIfKnown]

If you see… It means…
An Underlined Title The description of the podcast will pop up in a little window if you hover over it. Give it a try to the left. Hover your mouse over ‘An Underlined Title.’
A Bold Title There is a (often vast) backlog of episodes that I’m listening to to catch up to current. To the right of name is the {number} of episodes in said backlog.
An Italic Title The podcast is ‘complete.’ No new episodes are being produced to my knowledge. There have been podcasts I thought were complete and then a new episode popped up months or even years later.
A Crossed-Out Title The podcast has “faded.” In other words, it just sort of stopped without any sort of announcement, and is probably dead. I still subscribe, just in case.
A Normal Title This is a live podcast, currently in production, and I’m caught up, listening to new episodes as they go live (within a week or so, usually).

And those “stack,” by the way; I could have a bold, struck-out, italic title with an underline. Meaning it faded, was complete (wouldn’t both happen, but hey), but I have a backlog, and you can see the description if you hover.

Podcasts, in order of “importance” (327 total):

  1. Fiction: Audiodrama (56)

    In the Golden Days of radio, a lot of shows were audiodramas. They had music, sound effects, and multiple voice actors. This lost art is coming back, but in the form of podcasts rather than on the radio. These are performances by actors, not just straight readings. The distinguishing feature: ongoing stories.

  2. Fiction (34)

    A single, contained (shorter – drabble, flash, short stories, novelettes, and novellas) story in a single episode, whether that be 5 minutes or 3 hours. Usually read by one person, and without music or sound effects. Just a good, old-fashioned reading of a story.

  3. Fiction: Anthology (12)

    Two or more stories (often both poetry and prose) in many episodes, sometimes accompanied by commentary, review, opinion, or discussion pieces by the host(s). Still just readings, but kind of like an audio magazine instead of an audiobook.

  4. Fiction: Audiobooks (30)

    Generally a single reader reading a long-form piece (novel or a long novella) over numerous episodes. Occasionally also done as a full-cast recording with music and sound effects: an audio ‘movie,’ as it were. Each short episode will have the podcast’s intro and outro section, so it’s less like an audiobook in that respect. Sometimes includes Q&A episodes or other commentary from the author.

  5. News & Politics (10)

  9. True Crime, Mystery, Weird (26)

    I realized I had a number of podcasts on my feed all dealing with true crime, mysteries, or just ‘weird’ topics in general. I created this group as a place to put them all, even if they’re not obviously related.

  10. Science (24)

    The first few podcasts I ever listened to were science- or skepticism-related. I lump them together because, to me, they are inextricably bound. I have far fewer podcasts in this category because they started to repeat one another, and . . . Frankly, it was a lot of preaching to the choir. The few I still really enjoy are here.
