PODCASTS

Post by Demps » Wed 22 Aug, 2018 4:45 pm

Any suggestions?

I watch / listen to the Joe Rogan Experience when he has a guest of interest on there or just the general MMA ones....

Would like to find some decent footy ones.

Found a Knights related one called The Joust on YouTube, very Newcastle related but discuss NRL stuff too.. Interesting one with old mate Matt Hilder recently too, sharing some inside info.

Skeptics Guide to the Universe is by far the best podcast on the planet.
Otherwise I also recommend:
- BBC Discovery (broad ranging topics)
- Click (Technology in the modern age)
- The Economist Editors Highlights (weekly pick of articles from the Economist)
- Radiolab, a fascinating and well produced hour of in depth investigative journalism
- Freakenomics (like radio lab but more about loosely linked economics topics that are part of current affairs)

Anyone currently listening to "the Teaches Pet" podcast?
It's about an unsolved crime on Sydney's Northern beaches.
I think it maybe the highest ranking podcast with over 20 million downloads..or listens or something.
Very good. I'm only up to episode 3 of 14. But I think I'll get through them quickly. I saw a development in the case today and noticed a new episode came out this arvo.
P.s. There is a Rugby League aspect to the case.

Big fan of James Valentine. The even greater Sydney planning Commission with HG Nelson on Fridays are a hoot.

I love True Crime Podcasts, have listened to 100s and am fairly surprised at the popularity of this one. I found it boring and repetitive. From Episode 1 you believe he did it, then there’s 13 more episodes of saying he did. I felt like nothing ever happened.

I suppose it depends what you’re interested in but this was more of a soap then anything else.

If you like True Crime check out:

CaseFile - generally renowned as the best one, an aussie production so lots of familiar cases
Unresolved
Criminology
Serial (basically what started the craze) - first season is good, second ok, not a fan of the new one
Up & Vanished

Think it depends on the podcast you want to listen to. I use Spotify to listen to some but not all are available there.

Podbean. They have a website too where you can listen off your desktop.

Will need to find that one.

Listened to his Elon Musk and latest Neil deGrasse Tyson ones recently. They are two very clever dudes.

This week in league is not a bad NRL podcast. Some good footy talk and banter - not for the faint hearted.
