I’ve had my dog for around 10 years, all of it with another dog until two years ago. I’d put the food down and they would scarf it down in no time. I couldn’t leave the food out if one wasn’t hungry (rare) because the other would eat it. After my older dog passed away my other dog will eat sometimes and other times Read more

“We Will Get Through This” from Sandi Toksvig is 10(ish) daily minutes of gentle joy. It’s just her, reading things from her library and riffing on history, relationships, hobbies or anything else that crosses her mind.  If there was such a thing as a verbal hug, this is it.

Oh, I love the list, just thought I’d add some since like you say can’t always get around to mentioning everything. And thanks for the recommendations, looking forward to trying them out!

Rude Tales is so good. I can’t name another podcast that more perfectly balances tight editing and improvisational goofiness. An audio form Rick & Morty might be the best comparison in terms of rhythm, but with a lot less navel-gazing.

Yes, and I should’ve clarified: I think Dave is very cynical, and his relentless pessimism has gotten worse over the last 3 and a half years (For some strange reason.) I certainly don’t blame him for having a bleak outlook on the world, but I don’t like a bring-down after a punchline.

Gotta recommend Rude Tales of Magic - it’s a D&D actual play podcast from a group of hilarious and very talented improvisers. And unlike a lot of other D&D podcasts, it’s still pretty short (about 15 episodes, all only about 90 minutes long) so you won’t have to feel like you’re really far behind before you even start.

My favorite podcasts for a laugh are “My Brother, My Brother, and Me” and the first arc of “The Adventure Zone,” neither of which likely needs an introduction (but I will say I strongly dislike what TAZ has morphed into post-the first storyline wrapping up around episode 88.

I also like movie podcasts that blend some Read more

It’s not cynicism if the people in the story are, in fact utter shitbags motivated by self interest, it’s just depressingly and angeringly accurate. This country was built on the soiled leavings of such egomaniacs, thieves, and liars and that’s why it’s got so much fucked with it. You can find the things that are good Read more

“No Such Thing As A Fish” is a brilliant Podcast for laughs with no ‘real world’ talk - the show stars researchers for the British quiz show QI presenting and discussing their favourite interesting fact that they have come across that week. For example, ice cream is solid, liquid and gas all at the same time. The Read more

The Weekly Planet podcast is a really funny nerd news podcast hosted by two Aussies.

I think it’s more like getting advice from a pathologist on how to stay healthy or a plane crash investigator how to fly. They’ve seen all the dead bodies, they’re very familiar with how folks failed to stay alive. Is “do the opposite of what they did” always going to be great advice Probably not.  Yet, at the same Read more
