That was one of the most entertaining podcasts I've ever listened to.

That podcast involves and ultimately exonerated a good friend of mine.

Timesuck with Dan Cummings.

I've listened to 3 episodes. Guys pretty funny and tells a good story.

The newest is about Nostradamus, and he recently did one on Bonnie and Clyde as well.

One of the better podcasts out at the moment even though they're 3 hours long.

Ear Hustle is a podcast produced by inmates in San Quentin. Really interesting. In its second season I think.

I stumbled across a mini-series podcast while reading a "favorite podcasts?" thread on reddit.

Dr. Death. It's a true story about a neurosurgeon in Texas who killed 3 patients and maimed a bunch of others during surgery.

Extremely interesting story. He ended up getting sentenced to life in prison.

The people behind the podcast did another one called Dirty John, which I haven't listened to yet. Another true crime story.

Just looked to see if there were any updates to Dr. Death(it's 6 episodes and an update episode, and they were planning another update episode), and there is another podcast by the same company and the Boston Globe's investigative journalism unit called Gladiator, about Aaron Hernandez and his life, which sounds interesting.

The Aaron Hernandez podcast is very interesting and well done, btw. Worth listening to. Only 3 out of 6 episodes right now.

Ben Franklin's World is well done. The host covers a bunch of topics from the 16th to 18th centuries. Episode guests are SMEs. Very informative and not too long; maybe an hour each episode.

'No Agenda' with Adam Curry and John C Dvorak. As title states, they deconstruct the lib and conserv political events of the week (2x week shows). They are oh so very slightly right, so worth a listen to check out the show.

"Bundyville". I'm on episode 3.

https://www.npr.org/podcasts/606441988/bundyville
From Longreads and Oregon Public Broadcasting, "Bundyville" is a seven-part series chronicling the rise, fall and resurgence of the Bundy family, the armed uprisings they inspired and the fight over the future of the American West.
Pretty balanced telling of the Bundy story.

The RFK tapes. Single season. Worth listening to just to hear them interviewing the guy who eventually wrote the book on Sirhan Sirham, he’s a piece of work.

Reply All by Gimlet media. It has potential but have only listened to a couple so far. If you like Jonathon Goldstein’s sense of humor Heavyweight is another by Gimlet that’s good.

I've become addicted to Welcome to Night Vale. It is dystopian surrealist deadpan humor in the form of a local affairs radio news show in an isolated desert community. The "weather report" part of each show always consists of musical content performed by listeners who submit their recordings.

I forgot about that one, thanks. Got started on it, then got distracted. Pretty funny, but just far enough off center I wonder how many people will think so.

One of the hosts sounds like Alvin from the Chipmunks. I wasn't sure whether it was on purpose until I looked it up. It's Yeardley Smith, the voice of Lisa Simpson.

Poor lady. I guess that's her actual voice.

They got the religious aspect and the nature of the Bundy's down pretty good. Their are quite a few facts they get wrong and are a matter of public record that were very important they left out. One very important part was that in 1990's BLM seceded the grazing rights to clark county giving away their legal rights to collect grazing fees, and making clark county the legal holder to collect those fees. Over all I don't think it's balanced on the legal side of what happened.

On a true crime kick for a little while now.

I'd highly recommend the following three for true crime:

Bear Brook
Casefile
Happy Face

For everything else I keep finding myself listening to:

Intelligence Matters
The Lawfare Podcast
Cop Life
The Daily
Self Made Man

Me too for some reason. Thanks for those.

I am completely hooked on Small Town Dicks at the moment. The podcast I mean.
