What are you listening to right now, miners?
up yours, downstairs
Any recs for good horror and/or crime oriented podcasts?
I'm really interested in the topic of horror and similar themes, but most podcasts i've tried always went into long boring tangents of non-related stuff for 80% of the podcast and i ended up dropping them because of it.
Casefile is excellent, I try to listen to a couple of their podcasts every week.
Very engaging and superbly presented. The narration is conducted in a way that it'll build up something that seems fairly loose and almost tedious, and will then drop a load of information on you out of nowhere that will have you gripping your seat.http://casefilepodcast.com/
Is TAZ actually good? The only thing I ever hear about it is when tumblr spergs like "OOHHHHHH THEY WERE TRANS/GAY/NONBINARY OHHHHHHHHH" so I can't tell if it's an actual good podcast or if it's just pandery?
I've enjoyed so far. It takes a while to get on track and for them to find their pace imho (like 4th episode or something like that), but I think there are some parts that are pretty funny. Also I love how they play with their dad, it's such a cute bond.
Still yet to come across trans characters and the like lol
can't recommend rabbits and their other podcasts enough. they're all rehashing the same format, but have all got excellent writing and acting.
the nosleep podcast is a collection of the best of r/nosleep read/acted out loud, very professionally. sometimes they have featured horror authors too.
crime-wise, i'm listening to the grift, a true-stories based show. it's in the style of interviews, and the author i think interviewed all these people for real, but i doubt the ones we're hearing are the original ones.
it's pretty good, the first act is mostly jokes and is really funny if you're into that kind of humour.
it doesn't feel pandery, except in the "making jokes to keep the audience entertained" sense. which makes sense, because they're entertainers first, not players/writers/actors. the trans character is mentioned like once or twice iirc in the terms of "yeah this character is trans". all in all, i don't think it's pandery? tumblr just blows everything out of proportion and overfixates on that shit.
"Criminal" and "Australian True Crime With Meshel Laurie and Emily Webb" are entertaining and easy to get into. They bring in and focus on the guests for nearly all the episodes. The guests are most often victims, professionals or just people who are somehow related to the crime, and then listen to them, their experiences and thoughts on what happened. They're not exactly creepy, just insightful, peculiar and crime oriented.http://thisiscriminal.com/https://omny.fm/shows/australian-true-crime-with-meshel-laurie-and-emily/playlists/podcast-1
For some reason I prefer podcasts hosted by women more than men, but whenever I ask for recommendations all people mention is "my favorite murder", but I just can't get past their delivery.
Any recs for history related podcasts? I've been listening to Dan Carlin's "Blue Prints for Armageddon" and really enjoying it!
This is a podcast thingy that I like to listen to a lot. It deals a lot with sculptors and the history behind their pieces. I first learned about Harriet Hosmer here, and I've wanted to learn how to sculpt ever since.
If anyone has any food history podcasts though, I'd be glad to listen!
I really enjoy the weirder episodes of What You Missed In History Class, but I'm no history buff so as far as I know it could be more basic than informative if you already know a fair bit of history.
Astonishing Legends is cool.
Lore is pretty good too but it's very… Gothic. I don't exactly know how to describe it. Sometimes I take a break and don't listen for a couple months just because of the heavy atmosphere.
Thank you! I can't choose which one to listen to! Also love how its hosted by two women (seems as though majority of podcasts are male based, so its a breath of fresh air) >>1059
This looks very interesting, definitely gonna check this out!
Also does anyone here listen to "Last Podcast on the Left"? I've been listening to their Dahmer and Columbine episodes at work and find them pretty enjoyable (though the hosts can be annoying at times).
I listen to Last Podcast pretty often. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea and the guys can be a bit over the top at times but overall I like it.
I really enjoy the Love, Alexi podcast by Alexi Wasser.
When I first encountered her content she just seemed like this totally ditzy/dumb valley girl, but as I became more familiar with her I realized that she's actually very thoughtful and emotionallty intelligent.
Her newer work is mostly interviews with actors and various personalities but she used to do a call in advice show which was personal and sweet.
true crime garage is two guys, i really enjoy them check em out if you want
Just listened to them for 5 minutes and so far they seem really chill. The vocal fry is a bit irksome, but oh well, I'll live.
Will definitely visit their site again and listen to at least 2 of their episodes to see if I really enjoy their content and delivery.
Currently obsessed with this because I'm trash
I'm in love with Marcus Parks.
The Art of Wrestling
I like Backstory it can get a little pozzed like most NPR stuff sometimes but most shows are chill
are there any art related podcasts out there that you recommend? I'm new to this whole podcast thing.
All The Fixins
It's defiantly not for everyone but I enjoy. It's one of the few podcasts I actively listen to and keep up with. It originally started off as a podcast about Survivor but even if you don't watch Survivor you can still listen to it.
I don't know how you can handle the vocal fry and the fake intellectualism on that podcast. They're insufferable.
It was truly something else, Corinne is an addictive and weird personality. The COVID hiatus got me out of the Survivor fandom, used to listen to RHAP but haven't in a couple years.
you're listening… ironically, right?
I like pods where it's basically just women talking about a topic, mainly because I have very few female friends IRL and it makes me feel less alone.
Some of the ones I listen to:
>Teatime (part of Ringer Dish, focused on pop culture)
>Decoder Ring (focued on random topics, mostly pop culture-y)
>Ologies (Host interviews someone involved with the "ology" of the episode)
>Office Ladies (someting about their tones are very soothing and it just feels like two good friends talking to you about their jobs. I know, "The Office is cringe," etc. A lot of folks don't like them but I'm including it anyway)
Anyone have any other favorite women-hosted podcasts?
I like improv comedy podcasts like Comedy Bang Bang. Comedians come on the show in character and just improv with each other for about an hour. Fun, chaotic.
My favorite podcasts are Lexicon Valley (mostly linguistics, but the host is autistically into musicals) and Philosophize This (history of philosophy).>>23629
I like ologies but it always makes me fall asleep. Some female hosted podcasts I've liked are>Let's Talk About Sects (cults)>Gastropod (history and science of food)>You Must Remember This (history of hollywood)>You're Wrong About (talks about events in pop culture that are widely misunderstood/misremembered, used to be cohosted with a scrote but he was reasonably tolerable)
I have long shifts at work so I have a lot of podcasts that I cycle through, some of my favorite timewasters are
You're Wrong About, Underunderstood, History of Philosophy With no Gaps, Iron Dice, Scamwow, Red Scare, [spoiler]Cumtown, [spoiler]Chapo[/spoiler][/spoiler]
Yeah I definitely do Ologies in small doses because sometimes it's a little dull
Thanks for the recs, I'm interested in all of them and will check em out>>23654
Underunderstood looks fun and so does Scamwow. Definitely will give em a listen. Is chapo actually any good?
sweet release podcast
i really dig this kind of spiritual type of podcasts, wish i could find more like that because they haven't been posting much lately
I have a few that I mostly listen while mindlessly building in the sims or working.
Small town murder : two comedians who talk about murder sin small af town, it last around 2 to 2h30 usually
Song vs song : like said in the title, it's just 2 person (youtuber toddInTheShadows and his friend lina) comparing two songs. It's around 1h
MusicalSplainin : it's Lindsay Ellis talking about musical to a friend of her that doesn't like it. They first talk about it then watch it and in the second part, they talk about it.
Giga Musik : french podcast about musics that are so bad they're good
I also used to follow quite heavily the starkid show/podcast wayward guide for the untrained eyes but I dropped at one point. It's not bad, I just kinda dropped it.
I know it's not a podcast but the Sandman serie by audible is amazing. I loved the comic and the way they adapted it is so good.
I don’t know if miners would like it much, but my favorite podcast ever is SleepyCast.
Give historical podcasts recommendations please. All I have so far is dark histories. I like formal presentations and not a two-person conversation style podcast type
I found an amazing one on youtube:https://www.youtube.com/c/FallofCivilizationsPodcast
There are both audio and visual versions. I love the visual versions and can watch for hours, they just give a feel and set the vibe for what he's talking about though and listening is enough.
Oh! looks interesting. Thanks so much!
I can vouch for >>23981
, it's really good
I also recommend Historia Civilis and the Revolutions podcast on the Khwarezmid youtube channel
Here is one I found by accident, Something Criminal:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcbnamtuRzokZ9Nb9iAh1mg
Youtube recommends me a lot of crime channels but they never recommended me this one, it's really good though and should have more viewers. He pays a lot of attention to the victims and it can get really sad
Mac Miller Tiny Desk Concert.
Im loving that they have a podcast, it brings me so much joy
(not loving that they dont agree with ywnbaw)
I am currently listening to The Tammy Bruce Show on Locals.
For those who don’t know about Tammy Bruce—she is a pro-choice, pro-gun, conservative radical feminist lesbian that used to be a Far Left activist. She has written three books wherein she predicted the rise of the New Thought Police and the “woke Left” nearly 20 years ago. She was President of the National Organization for Women in LA in the 90s and got her own radio show shortly after getting cancelled by NOW for not being woke enough. She has a fun sense of humor, insightful commentary and is mostly high-IQ (minus her occasional Trump simping.)
If you’re into political talk radio, I recommend her showhttps://tammybruce.locals.com/
Gay Adam is pretending to be a woman again I see
Watching this and I thought of you miners
>>24090>they dont agree with ywnbaw
Joe Rogan (but I'd never ever tell anyone in real life). Looked into it when he was accused of being transphobic, found myself wholly entertained.
Joe Rogan Trans take about Fallon Fox is based and wise. And his advice about getting into MMA, Muay Thai, Judo, Jiu Jitsu is right too.
the drive by peter attia. The episodes on sleep and also the one where he interviews kyle disseroth are p good.
Bumping this as I need more podcasts in my life.
The story must be told - a big favorite of mine
The lolita Podcast - a really good coverage of the book and how moids ruined it, I really loved this series
