BkkSci Social, Jan 30, 2013, sparked a lively discussion about podcasts (and other sources of learning). This here thread is set up as a way to capture the various recommendations that poped up during the evening. Please feel free to share your recommendations. Science!

Dan Carlin's Hardcore History - Epic tales of bygone eras presented by Dan Carlin. These shows are long but well worth it. Highly recommended.

WNYC Radiolab - Science-themed stories presented by Jad Abumrad and NPR science correspondant Robert Krulwich. Radio doesn't get much better than this.

99% Invisible - Not a science podcast per se but rather about design and architecture. Roman Mars is the host and he's a fantastic story teller.

from my list:
You probably know the Book already, this podcast talks about the same type of things
http://www.freakonomi...­

Also This American Life
http://www.thisameric...­

Those are really radio productions made available as podcasts. This one is closer to the original podcast idea and talks about underreported news:

I wasn't there but I am sure this was mentioned as the greatest intelligent radio series of all time:


The science part alone is astonishing...

I've always been a fan of:

Stuff You Should Know: everything from physics to history. Best part is the super amiable and funny hosts Josh and Chuck. http://www.stuffyoush...­

NPR's Planet Money: super interesting topics that deal with everything from global finance markets to pyramid scams to a dude who patents different cuts of meat. Short and always very well done. http://www.npr.org/bl...­

The Nerdist: no technically about science, but always interesting. Usually an interview with a movie or TV star, famous musician or well-known comedian, but the emphasis is always on their inner nerd and pop culture leanings. Bonus - the podcast has expanded to a Nerdist mini-empire, lots of interesting stuff on their website. http://www.nerdist.co...­

Last but not least, definitely nothing about science, but Doug Loves Movies is my favorite podcast. A game show about movies in front of a live audience with foul-mouthed comedians as guests. Awesome. http://www.douglovesm...­
