    Spontaneanation by Paul F. Tompkins just started. It's awesome. Completely improved scene based on an interview he does with a guest.

    Slate Political Gabfest and Whistlestop are pretty good.

    There is also one called Home of the Brave they talked about at the end of This American Life a few weeks back. I've been listening and it's pretty good. Only problem is the guy is monotoned as hell

    It's kinda like a shorter version of This American Life but it mostly centers around the host's experiences. The last two episodes were about him going to Afghanistan and meeting a teenager and the kid coming to America and going to college where the guy teaches. The guy seems pretty weird but has a lot of interesting stuff to talk about.

    I've really enjoyed You Must Remember This about historical figures in hollywood. They're about 30-50 minutes long and sort of tell tales about old hollywood. The girl telling it can be annoying though.

    If you listen to This American Life, it's the guy from the episode a couple weeks back who went around interviewing schizophrenics.

    How Did This Get Made is awesome.
    Nerdist will have really great interviews with famous/interesting people.
    Backstory is a good American history podcast that talks more about themes in history that were present in the 17th-20th century, rather than focus on a single historical event.

    Some others I like that haven't been mentioned

    -BBC World Update-summarizes the news stories of the day for about 30 minutes
    -Fareed Zakaria GPS-touches on important topics and always has A-list guests and panels
    -Freakonomics Radio-like Stuff You Should Know, but better done.
    -Mysterious Universe-show is typically an hour long and they talk about some pretty far-fetching scientific concepts that the mainstream public does not know or has refuted for the wrong reasons

    does it do episode recap? I listen to it on my commute with a guy who just watches the show, so that's a limiting factor

    Yes. They do a long recap that's showfag safe. Then also usually another 20 min pod that's more for bookfags

    They also have a lot of good book discussion pods in their library

    I'm on chapter 6 of Leviathan Chronicles and it's pretty damn good. The quality of the voice actors and the sound effects is really well put together and definitely helps to illustrate the story more.

    I re-started the Hardcore History thread but I don't think anyone responded so I'm going to ask here. I listened to the first 5 parts of Blueprint for Armageddon and I guess another part is coming out? Anybody have any idea when this will be?

    As for the new ep - not sure when its coming out, but hopefully soon. I think the next one he begins to discuss :americafuckyeah: entering the war

    Nice, I searched and didn't find anything. I was really confused when it was 1916 and I only had one episode left and was like how the fuck is he going to finish the war? Then after listening to Episode 5 I realized I'm an idiot and more were coming out.
