Hey, everybody, apologies if this has been asked before but I searched on here and couldn't find anyone talking about podcasts. I'm always on the lookout for some and it seems like there are a ton out there, so I was curious what everyone would recommend.


I personally like the following: Limetown; My Brother, My Brother, and Me; The Adventure Zone; Lore; RadioLab; WTF w/ Marc Maron; Comedy Bang Bang; Doug Loves Movies (although I haven't listened in a while); Welcome to Night Vale (most of the time); King Falls AM; and Wolf 359.


Also, are there any good comic or X-Men-specific podcasts you'd recommend? I started to listen to Jay and Miles, but I can tell they don't like Gambit much and I'm already kinda sick of the small amounts of bashing I've heard so far. Does that ever get better?


Also, sorry if this isn't the most appropriate section to post under haha Music just seemed like the closest category.

The Dollop--my favorite podcast. Comedian Dave Anthony reads a story from American history* to Gareth Reynolds, his friend & fellow comedian who has no idea what the topic is going to be about...and usually has no clue where it's going once it's started. You can start from the beginning like I did or start w/Hugh Glass or The Rube (my fave) or 10-cent Beer Night. And there's even a Gambit connection as one ep is about Cajuns.

*Except when they do shows abroad, like they've done in Australia and Iceland--then they do something from that country's history.

Absolutely! I downloaded the first couple plus the 2 you recommended - just haven't had a chance to listen yet. I will let you know though as soon as I do

Cool.

Forgot to say that there’s swearing and sometimes the humor gets dark, just so you’re aware.

So I've only had time to listen to the first episode (the one about Cliven Bundy) and I'm only halfway through it but I already love it. Them talking about the George Washington impersonator at the BBQ had me dying haha
