Podcast Episode – Great Podcasts We Love

Episode 5 Show Notes

Welcome to our 5th episode. Podcasts should be of interest to cord cutters. Instead of video on demand, it’s audio on demand. Why pay for satellite radio or listen to a ton of commercials on terrestrial radio when there is all this quality free audio content out there?

Just getting into podcasts?  Joel and Dennis let you know their favorite podcasts. When we first started listening to podcasts it was hard to discover content. This episode will point you in the right direction. Here are a few we love in no particular order.

Serial – A feat of investigative journalism of a mysterious true crime.

Nerdist Podcast –  Nerds, Chris Hardwick and friends, hang out and interview celebrities.

NoSleep Podcast – An anthology horror podcast born out of the NoSleep subreddit.
Black Tapes – If you’ve listen to Serial, imagine if it was paranormal.
We’re Alive – The dead walk in this post-apocalypse zombie-esque audio drama. It’s my  personal favorite.
Pseudopod – Horror fiction anthology podcast. This one has been going a long time.
Invisibilia – This one is about the invisible forces that control human behavior – ideas, beliefs, assumptions and emotions. It’s one of the best podcasts around.
TED Radio Hour – A podcast based on the Ted Talks we all know and love.
How Did this Get Made – Three actor/comedians riff on movies that are so bad you wonder  . . .
Freakonomics – A podcast about using economic theory to find the truth when it comes to the human condition.
