/Filmcast (or “slashfilmcast”) features David Chen, Devindra Hardawar, and Jeff Cannata reviewing the latest movies.
70MM includes a group of entertaining movie lovers discussing recent movies (noticing a theme yet?). They each bring 3 topics to discuss which is a surprisingly good podcasting format.
The Always Sunny Podcast
The Always Sunny Podcast includes Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton, and Rob McElhenney breaking down each episode of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. I adore this show and can’t believe they are discussing every episode. I also highly recommend watching the episodes on YouTube instead of listening.
Accidental Tech Podcast
Accidental Tech Podcast (or “ATP”) features Marco Arment, Casey Liss, and John Siracusa discussing Apple and the tech industry. For $8 per month you can skip the ads.
Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History
Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History covers major historical events in excruciating detail. You think an hour long podcast episode is long? Try four hours!
Dune Pod started as a podcast that discussed movies tangentially related to Dune (2021) and slowly morphed into a delightful general movie podcast.
Fly on the Wall with Dana Carvey and David Spade
Fly on the Wall with Dana Carvey and David Spade features one of my comedy heroes and David Spade. I kid I kid. Listen to these two interview former SNL cast members.
Fresh Air features Terry Gross interviewing journalists, authors, musicians, directors, artists, and more on NPR. She is arguably the best interviewer alive.
How Did This Get Made
How Did This Get Made features Paul Scheer, June Diane Raphael, and Jason Mantzoukas discussing horrible movies. It might be my favorite podcast. I’ve seen them live four times.
The Incomporable features Jason Snell and pals discussing geeky media. Start with the Sneakers episode.
The Talk Show
The Talk Show features John Gruber of daringfireball.net, my favorite Apple journalist, interviewing journalists, engineers, and, occasionally, Apple executives about… Apple.
The Vergecast features Nilay Patel, Dieter Bohn, and Paul Miller discussing the latest in tech. Some episodes include interviews with prominent figures in the tech industry.
