Putting a “podcasts of the year list” together is very challenging. This was a really good list but I would add:
- History — Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History, King of Kings (Series) — talks about the actual events around the movie 300.
- Freakonmics Radio — How to Win Games and Beat People
- The Tim Ferris Show — Dissecting the Success of Malcolm Gladwell
- The Bill Simmons Podcast, Episode 97, Restaurateur David Chang — the best is the chef saying “if you want to know what its like to open a restaurant, just take $200,000 and burn it in an oil drum” (paraphrased).
- Revisionist History — Hallelujah — actually, every episode blew my mind — Malcolm Gladwell can do more than just write — who knew?
Thanks for the list.
