Just wondering what people are currently listening too.
Some rugby ones I listen too.
House of Rugby - Seriously enjoying this one, Alex Payne was always good with Sky, really miss the Super rugby show he did. Makes me wish BT stopped the wannabe Top gear crap, I'm a fan of brand Haskell as well, usually good guests.
The Short Ball - Well produced good chemistry.
Green and Gold - Shocking mics half the time, but really enjoyable and quite interesting views on ARU.
Thistle Rugby - Scottish rugby fans who take themselves too seriously, unlike some other fan podcasts.....
Leicester Tigers rugby podcast - Good for Tigers news.
The Rugby Pod - It's a bit laddish but it's a good middle ground between the old school days and the current pro era. Some good player stories in it.

Other regular podcasts.
Blues Kitchen Radio - Good for finding new blues artists, and hearing about gigs.
Empire Podcast - I like Film review podcasts and enjoy the chemistry between them all.
Pilot - As above but with TV shows.
Mayo and Kermode - Again enjoy their take.
Around the NFL

Podcasts I like but very much depends on the guest.
Joe Rogen
Marc Maron WTF
Id10t

Got a few History Podcasts I listen too, depending on the subject matter.
A few others that forgotten about.


Big money in Rugby podcasts it seems perhaps we need a new TRF one with a charismatic leader?

Don't really listen to any rugby podcasts, when I do listen to one I like binge it usually and am fairly mainstream.

Serious:
Serial is obviously class, especially season one where journalist Sarah Koenig investigates the murder of a high schooler in Baltimore in 1999.
The History of Rome does exactly what it says on the tin from the mythical founding of the city up until the fall of the Western Empire. Really informative but never too dry, this was a really great listen. Especially when the recording equipment was upgraded after the first few episodes.

Comedic:
My Dad Wrote a Porno a young English man's Nordie dad started writing erotica and he reads it aloud to two friends. Has like 100 million downloads, very funny and charming even if they sometimes come across a bit thick.
The Adventure Zone three brothers and their dad play D&D this is the most recent podcast I've started listening to. I've already gotten through over 60 episodes in around three weeks. I've never played D&D before but it's hilarious and has a decent story to it.

Kermode and Mayo -
Joe Rogan Experience & MMA show - like Tigs and Oly I pick and choose based on the guest.
Critical Role* - Never thought i'd be interested in Dungeons & Dragons until I saw it being done by a group of professional voice actors. Unfortunately the nature of the show means it would take hundreds of hours to catch up, so I just listen to the stand-alone specials.

Those are the only podcasts I listen to but I've recently started downloading the audio from a couple of Youtube channels to listen to whilst running. Most of the time the video is just fluff anyway.

RedLetterMedia* - Mainly for the humour but they can be quite insightful about film and their reviews are a nice contrast to the more serious, slightly pompous critics I listen to. Their 50 minute review of Jack and Jill is probably the best I've ever seen, despite having never watched the film.
Lindsay Ellis - really wasn't sure at first but it's quickly becoming my favourite channel. Would recommend at least looking at her Hobbit autopsy and her scathing review of Bright. Also enjoy her beginners introduction to Film theory concepts applied to Transformers, which is much more interesting than it sounds. There's a lot of Disney stuff early on, and recently a couple of videos about Youtube itself but so far I've enjoyed everything else. Best enjoyed if you're a Libtard snowflake cuck like me.
Georg Rockall-Schmidt - This one lies somewhere in between the previous 2. Reasonably in depth look at film but lighter in tone (and shorter in length...) than video essays seen elsewhere.

Gonna have to check out the Empire podcast later.

*These two are definitely better watched than listened to, but if I'm gonna sit in front of a TV for dozens of hours I'd rather just rewatch The Wire for the 5th time.

Hardcore History- WW1 series is some of the best I’ve listened to. Can’t recommend highly enough.

Revisionist history- Malcolm Gladwell podcast. Looks at specific issues in a different way.

No such thing as a fish- QI elves podcast. Interesting and funny.

The Hobbit stuff is utterly brilliant, the Disney stuff is pretty good in my opinion.

I'd recommend highly Movies With Mikey if you like Lindsay and Folding Ideas. Both of whom are good friends with her and do the in depth analysis to a huge degree and are on par with her.

One of my fellow three listeners to the triforce!

I'm listening to Not Another D&D podcast, The Adventure Zone, finished Serial recently, My Dad Wrote a Porno, Welcome to Night Vale, if I were you and then the Ross O'Carroll Kelly one every weekend.
Also listen to no such thing as a fish now and again.

Was just talking about Red Letter Media yesterday, I'm a huge fan of hack frauds. Do they have a podcast? Best of the Worst is probably the best movie show on YouTube. Funny they made it big off reviewing Star Wars prequels.

The only rugby pod I religiously listen to is Blood & Mud. I find it a refreshing change from the usual fayre of former players enjoying "bants" with their mates. For the same reason, I listen to The EggChasers from time to time.

Outside rugby, I like Freddie, Savage And The Ping Pong Guy for general sports. They're all surprisingly candied about their personal lives and offer interesting perspectives on their discussion topics. My only other regular listen is BuzzerBlog, a bit of fun / nostalgia for trivia nerds like me!

The tiny meat gang. Binge a few of them every few weeks. Not really a podcast listener.

I watched it on youtube but it is a podcast so it counts...... I have to say the latest House of Rugby was fascinating with Ben Ryan, if you have time give it a listen/watch.

Myths and Legends and Fictional are both by the same guy, the first has retelling of common myths, legends and or fairy tales, they are quite often a lot more messed up than the modern version you might know. The second is the same but completely fiction stories.

How Good's Footy is from a podcast factory in aussie...basically three blokes talking nothing but **** about AFL, its fantastic, will definitely help you get into what Im learning is a great sport. Still small enough that they read out emails on it and are more than happy to spend the better part of an episode trying to help you pick a team to follow

Started listening to Chad goes deep. It's the two guys from the viral video addressing city council to stop house parties being banned in LA. It's very very "bro-y" but massively entertaining and wholesome if that doesn't affect your stoke.

Against the Rules - Michael Lewis (author of Moneyball, The Blind Side and The Big Short.

Started listening to this last night. Really interesting premise, being about the erosion of fairness in all aspects of society and why everyone hates the referee. I’m a big fan of Lewis from his books so was predisposed to this anyway but it is well worth a listen.

Listening to the Kanye guest episode of Joe Rogen.

Talent guy clearly intelligent in many ways but can’t remember the last time I’ve heard so much delusional BS in that time frame.

Kanye really did drown in the Kool-aid.

Yeah it's kind of sad he's surrounded himself with yes men who just want to leech.

He's bi-polar and has spoken about how he'll go off his meds to get more creative - he really needs a stable force in his life because he's clearly unwell and spiraling
