My Podcast List February 2017

Because I spend so much time in my car visiting clients and driving my kids around podcasts help keep me entertained, informed and help keep me from being angry at people who don’t go at green lights.  This is my Podcast list as of February 2017.  I wanted to list out all the shows I listen to and in future updates, I will be posting about particular episodes that were particularly good.  Also, if you are looking for a good Podcasting App I really recomend PocketCasts.  I did a review of it here

Penn’s Sunday School  is really a fun look into the fun and unusual insight Penn has on a wide variety of topics.  The show has Penn Jillette, Michael Goudeau, Matt Donnelly discussing the news of the week, religious news, talk about monkeys, & anything else that seems funny or that drives Penn “Bug Nutty”

Park Howell hosts the Business of Story podcast where he interviews internationally acclaimed story artists, content strategists, and brand raconteurs who will help you craft and tell compelling stories that sell. This is a great “How To” podcast for story marketing.

I have been a long time listener to Security Now for a long time, Steve Gibson and Leo Laporte are fun to listen to and Steve dives in technically deep with plenty of detail on current security topics.  They also have every show completely transcribed and good show notes.

Astrophysicist and Hayden Planetarium director Neil deGrasse Tyson does this wonderful Science meets comedy and pop culture in this StarTalk Radio podcast.

The Art of Charm is Social Science, Cognitive Psychology, Confidence, Relationship Advice, Behavioral Economics,  Productivity and some Biohacking.  Great show, great guests that can really change the way think about social situations and how you interact with other people.  The interviews cover both business and personal relationships and offer a lot of insight into the psychology of life situations.

Chris Hardwick is a great host but I only really listen to The Nerdist  Podcast based on if there is a guest on that I am interested in, that being said he has some AWESOME guests.

Social Media Examiner’s host Michael Stelzner covers success stories and expert interviews from leading social media marketing pros. It’s the best podcast in covering the trends in the world of social media.

RISK! The wild and fun Kevin Allison helms this surprisingly uncensored show where people tell jaw-dropping true stories they never thought they’d dare to share in public. RISK! is hilarious, heart-wrenching, remarkably real and sometimes VERY VERY not safe for work.  Some of the stories will bring tears to your eyes or they could turn your stomach.  You have been warned!

This Week in Enterprise Tech explores the complex, cutting edge world of enterprise technology. TWiET features IT professionals explaining the ins and outs of enterprise solutions.

This Week In Google with hosts Leo Laporte, Jeff Jarvis, Stacey Higginbotham, and their guests talk about the latest Google news, internet policies and all the ramifications this has on our privacy.

Windows Weekly A weekly look at all things Microsoft, including Windows, Windows Phone, Office, Xbox, and more, from two of the foremost Windows watchers in the world, Paul Thurrott of and Mary Jo Foley

Hardcore History is put together by Dan Carlin with his sometimes unorthodox way of thinking. Was Alexander the Great as bad a person as Adolf Hitler? What would Apaches with modern weapons be like? Will our modern civilization ever fall like civilizations from past eras? This isn’t academic history (and Carlin isn’t a historian) but the podcast’s unique blend of high drama, masterful narration, and Twilight Zone-style twists keeps me listening and excited to see what’s next.  The current episode is free but you have to pay for past ones and they are worth every penny!  The Ghosts of the Ostfront series is the most in depth and terrifying look at WW2 from the German and Russian fronts that I am aware of.

You Are Not So Smart is a celebration of self-delusion that explores topics related to cognitive biases, heuristics, and logical fallacies. David McRaney interviews scientists about their research into how the mind works, and then he eats a cookie.  I have also read the two books published by David, but the podcast covers most of the same as the content of his books.

Triangulaiton Leo Laporte talks to the smartest people in the world about the most important topics in technology. Leo is a great a well expierenced host, but I really only listen to this based on my interest level in his guest.
