    At no point, in all the episodes I listened to, did I make the connection he was David’s son. Damn.

    Yeah, he's cerebral. Comes off as potentially autistic/savant to me. Furthest I would imagine from papa coe. He makes no excuses for it or even really references it.

    S-town.

    Shit town. It was famous a few years ago and probably already covered, but worth a mention again. I just listened to it

    The pay off/ending is kinda shit, honestly, but the ride is worth it anyway. Small Town Alabama eccentric reaches out to NYC/Serial journalist about small town corruption/murder. Becomes a mystery revolving around said eccentric involving a separate death.

    Well done, no shitty personalities or tons of ads. Will admit the ending kinda sucks, but the ride is worth it

    Same. Huge let down. Loved eps 1-5~6. But just a huge fucking deflated balloon at the end. Still worth the listen for the build up before said shitty let down.

    I'm not a huge military history guy but I've been recommended this so many times I'm ashamed of myself. Repeat, military history bores the fuck out of me. Still?

    They actually do a good job of telling the stories imo but the appeal is that it's a bunch of ex military guys talking about militaries doing dumb shit. I guess it could he called a comedy podcast? I think it's hilarious but the humor is very dark

    I'm really, really loving 'youre wrong about'.

    Same vein and oeuvre of the stalwarts of brb or the dollop. Apparently, she's more 'famous' and her pod is killing it. She identifies as a feminist, but she, to me, is amongst the most even-keeled observer/participants of any podcast I've ever heard. Fun, conversational, educational. Easy listening

    Montclaire de Haviland listen to their series on the Russian invasion of Afghanistan if you want to try one. I liked it enough that I listened to it twice

    The co-host also matters a lot for me. Nick #1. Francis #2.

    I love when Alex gets a caller who doesn't agree with him and Alex just kind of turns their volume down and talks over them

    Or when he gets a simple question from a caller that is legitimately curious and he can't answer. I listened to one where the dude asked if DARPA stood for and all Alex could mumble out was "advanced research"

    I dont but it definitely seems worth it. They get me every time because they'll put out a patreon ep on their main feed. It shows a full length episode. Like 45 min or whatever. Then I play it and it ends up only being a few minutes. Idk how they do that but it's so frustrating because the topic is always interesting.

    I just listen to too many podcasts to start paying for more of them.

    Just find a podcast that sounds interesting. If it's not long enough, listen at .5 speed.

    Boom. Problem solved. Got any more brain busters?

    I don’t think Alex Kirshner and Stephen Godfrey can coexist for much longer on Split Zone Duo.

    The last two/three episodes they’ve basically been screaming at and talking over each other any time Alex tries to make a point about a souther team and Godfrey needs to let him know he’s a local. Maybe it’s just their banter but it seems to have reached a hostile point to my amateur ear.

    If youre talking fiction, I used to really enjoy Knifepoint Horror. I haven't listened to any of the episodes from the last couple years, but I assume they're still good.

    They both can be a bit much at times. It also doesn't help that Alex seems to believe damn near every stereotype about southerners imaginable. Godfrey is much better at solo shows imo.

    True. But I do believe Alex is a bit naive about the world at times. He's had some head-scratching moments on the pod imo

    Alex is at his best directing traffic, rather than formulating deep thoughts on college football. I like him but I view him as the “host” and Richard and Godfrey as the talent if that makes sense.

    I kind of see the "host" role as a revolving door at times. But yes, for the majority of episodes Alex is the host.
