Nice podcasts?

1 Name: Anonymous : 2014-07-18 21:21
Do you guys listen to podcasts? I'm testing podcast software and I want podcasts that I can learn from. I've been listening to Democracy Now! news and want to learn new things. Do you know any podcasts about linguistics, news, Japanese, Ruby, or informative things?

A few weeks ago I listened to The Epiloguists, a dead podcast which had featured one of my favorite visual novelists. It was all over the place and didn't last long enough for the panelists to get into a stride, but I enjoyed it and found some provoking things to think about.

I like 99% invisible. It's about the design of things you might not think about normally. My favorite episode detailed the plan to keep a nuclear radiation site marked for 10,000 years.

Radiolab is the only actual podcast I've invested myself in. It's sort-of hard to find good podcasts that speak to you as an individual and are quality productions. Too many "podcasts" are just recorded Skype calls between a group of regular Joe friends, with no organization or direction. Not real quality productions, no real editing. To find a good podcast you need to invest a lot of time filtering out the bad ones, and there are so many bad ones.

An exception for me, which I wouldn't recommend to most people, is the Giant Bombcast
http://www.giantbomb.com/podcasts/
I only like it because I follow Giant Bomb as one of my main sources of internet video game stuff. I enjoy it and look forward to it. For other people though, it's just some regular dudes talking for 3 hours about games. Chances are, your favourite game news site has it's own "podcast", which you should probably check out.

I like the You Are Not So Smart Podcast.

Very interesting if you're into psychology and sociology, and it's good for learning about yourself and the decisions you make on a daily basis, so it can definitely be a self-help thing as well.

Speaking of very miscellaneous podcasts, like what >>2 mentioned, I'd finished listening to the Silent Key podcast months ago before I realized it had stopped. Although I remember that I found the podcast on an advertisement, I'm unsure what site it was on. At any rate, it's kaput. There are 31 episodes in total.

The podcast describes itself as "incalculable sadness and substantial humor in equal measure. Modern amateur radio recordings of varying length, presented without interruption or commentary."
What it happens to be is men about a decade older than me talking through radio, or something of the sort. There's no fixed topic, even within the same podcast.

It kind of felt like a slice of life anime's podcast counterpart.

Here's a link, if you're curious

I really like the concept but it's somewhat off-putting that they're not fully committing to it.
