    It’s all just produced really well and they consistently give good content. Glad Alex got paid.

    Planet Money and This American Life were two of the pods that got me listening to podcasts. Planet Money is still really good but I feel like This American Life went downhill after Alex left. It’s part that and part Trump Brain, but I feel like a lot of the Gimlet pods are NPR-inspired but without a lot of the constraints of public radio.

    Still listening to this and it's still good. My favorite thing I've learned so far is that McClellan's army delayed an attack on a much smaller Confederate force partly because the Confederates painted a bunch of logs black and set them up to look like cannons and he fell for it :laugh:

    I like the podcast but sometimes his choice in guests is not great. The Mark Zuckerberg one immediately comes to mind. I only made it about 2/3 through the first episode because the two women were basically just making fun of Zuckerberg for being a weird mega nerd in college

    And it’s really impossible to predict which one it will be.

    They used to be really good at turning ordinary stories into extraordinary ones but instead lately it’s just been kind of self indulgent and over dramatic. Same with The Moth.

    I started the one on King Leopold looking for some history talk, and his guest (Andrew Ti) wasn't really prepared. Mindless chatter.

    I've heard good things, so I'll try some others.

    Started the It Could Happen Here pod with Robert Evans. I tend to think the whole idea behind the thing is pretty outlandish but it's an interesting pod 2 eps in, to be sure.

    Just as a heads up, the guests having no clue ahead of time who they will be discussing is part of the conceit of the show.

    Disappointed that I decided to listen to my first History Unplugged episode and it seemed to be an hour of “Nathan Bedford Forrest wasn't as bad as everyone thinks” - I unsubscribed 20 minutes into the episode.

    What a shitty show and all parties involved suck massively.

    Homocide 100%. But then again, I always find myself getting sucked in to whatever view the creators lead you to believe in these things (i.e. Believing Adnan and Steve Avery both being innocent).

    and you also don't get to see the people involved. These people are morons (typically). The type of idiots that would check to see if their recently deceased friend had money on him or even steal his cell phone. However, I agree with you - not suicide.

    They’re all pretty good. The last one about the bleach enemas curing autism is bananas land.

    Everyone and a while there’s one that falls flat for me , but more time than not - it’s really good

    Recently the Edward Bernays one was pretty meh

    I frequently say I'm going to drink bleach after *team I like* loses or *team I hate* wins.

    Now I know there's drinkin' bleach and I can even take it as an enema if I want as well. My world view has been shifted.
