Hey all! I really enjoy listening to podcasts while I am walking and I was wondering what your favorite podcasts to tune into while working out.

    I like "Wait, wait", and "Hey, Puzzle Puzzle". I just switched to listening to an audio book, and that's been great too.

    I'm usually on my roadie or trail bike so I don't usually listen to much besides listening for traffic or other trail riders or hikers...but occasionally I'll throw a podcast on if I'm on the indoor trainer or a fairly deserted area outdoors...I like sports podcasts mostly...I've been listening to the Dan Lebetard cast lately...I listen to him on the radio as well...he's not everyone's cup of tea and most people "don't get the show"...I think his podcast is better than his radio show though because he has more license to say whatever the f&*% he wants...though he pushes that envelope with his radio show too...

    Judge John Hodgman (fake internet judge)
    Wait, Wait! Don't Tell Me!
    Radiolab
    Freakenomics
    Revisionist History
    Story Corps
    The Moth

    and when I can manage to listen to something related to the news, the NYT podcast called The Daily

    If you're into Fantasy Football, the Fantasy Footballers have everyday podcasts and are hilarious as well.

    My favorites are Half Size Me and the Parcast Conspiracy Theories one. Also Dave Ramsey is interesting once in a while.

    I'm a true crime junkie...True Crime Garage, Truth and Justice, and True Murder are probably my top three in that category. I have a history one that releases a new episode like every 4 months but its about 3 hours long or more sometimes.
    Being a foodie, I enjoy Milk Street Radio, too.
    So many others, though....and audiobooks too!

    I like Milk Street Radio, too, but while driving, not walking ;)

    I don't play anymore but this is a fantastic podcast. I also like Fantasy Football Today (CBS sports).

    I listen to a lot of podcasts: Including

    History Extra, Dan Snow’s history hit.

    Crowd Science, The Curious Cases of Rutherford and Fry (science/maths)

    More or Less, The Inquiry, The Documentary, Today in Focus (news based)

    Most of these are from the BBC and come highly recommended.

    You can get really good BBC radio productions via eg audible (Agatha Christie / Inspector Morse / PG Wodehouse etc) And I enjoy the ‘Death of a ‘ series by MC Beaton for tongue in cheek crime solving.

    And a final fanfare for the podcast Death in Ice Valley, a british/Norwegian podcast reopening a fascinating crime scene. So good I am about to listen to it all again.,

    I usually listen to whatever is currently on NPR, but between the 9/11 commemoration and the wild fires coverage it was too depressing yesterday. Next I tried the latest "Half Size Me" but it was about maintenance, where I am not. Next, itunes offered me "Pod Save America," which I listened to, and enjoyed.

    If you're into true crime, then I'd definitely recommend My Favorite Murder, it's a true crime/comedy podcast and it's really interesting
  • Erswim10Erswim10 Member Posts: 129 Member Member Posts: 129 Member
    Thank you all! I definitely have a lot of new podcasts to try out!

    I almost exclusively listen to true crime podcasts on my walks:
    Crime Junkie
    Redhanded
    Uncover
    Someone Knows Something
    Canadian True Crime
    Crimebeat

    For human interest type stuff, check out Strangers. It is amazing.
