I tend to listen to podcasts when I'm doing mundane shit around the house. I've recently come to the conclusion that I am getting really sick of my usual podcast rotation, which consists primarily of Grantland/ESPN offerings. What podcasts (if any) do y'all regularly listen to? Any recommendations?

SmodCast with Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier
WWDTM from NPR


I used to listen to more, but I just really found I like interview podcasts. These are all pretty pop culture heavy.

Marek vs Wyshynski (hockey, daily)
Firewall and Iceberg (tv, weekly)
Judge John Hodgeman (humor, weekly)
Jay and Dan Podcast (TSN/sports/humor, weekly) If you like Onrait and O'Toole on Sportscentre you'll like this, and even if you don't I think it's still pretty funny.

Mohr Stories (Jay Mohr) - Has become hit or miss, but I'll always tune in to see if the guest is compelling.

The Crabfeast - Comedians Ryan Sickler and Jay Larson. I found them through Mohr. I really encourage folks to try them out. They basically just focus on telling funny stories (usually get on one topic and then just go at it.)

Smartest Man in the World - Jeff Probst. Very liberal, very smart, very funny. Sometimes his references fly over my head, but it's worth the listen.

Adam Carolla. I know a lot of folks don't like him, but he is actually unbelievably good at what he does with this format. I also like the others on his team. If nothing else, try to find the episode where David Allen Grier came on and did a Teddy Pendergrass "impersonation." It's possibly one of the funniest things I've ever heard.

This American Life. Consistently thought-provoking.

-=-=-==

I was deeply into Maron for at least a year. Never missed an episode. But then his guests started, IMO, kind of declining in quality. I also started skipping through his opening, because neurotic people kind of annoy me. No offense.

Merits a reboot.

There's two things I forgot (or just plain didn't get around to doing). One, a "The Swamp" app for mobiles. Of course, I can still do that (if there is any interest in such an animal). The other is getting a few of us together to figure out how to have a podcast where a number of us are part of "the show" on a weekly or monthly rotation.

Any ideas on how to create such a podcast, Rush? Anyone else?

I agree about Carolla. I can't listen to him all the time, but he's very good at what he does. Maron is great, but his opening is the weak part of the show, IMO. Stuff You Should Know is also a really good podcast.

Also, look into tapatalk if we're going to do a mobile app. It works pretty seamlessly with one of the other boards I've been on.

From my understanding John just recorded Skype conversations and posted them to Mediafire or some other distribution site. DropCanvas or the like would work quite nicely.

There are a number of apps that record, though John's seemed to work quite well so I can defer to him for recommendations.

ETA: I have two turntables (even a mobile one!) and a microphone as well.

That's where it's at.

On the Swampcast: Each person uses Skype. Each downloads CallBurner. And Viola! A recorded phone call conversation. Very simple. I'd then load the MP3 into Audacity, add an intro, and save as an MP3. I'd post it on ZShare. I could very easily create a YouTube Channel too.

On podcasts: Get the Stitcher App. GC turned me on to this years ago. It has nearly every podcast available. Highly recommended.

This is Greg Proops, not Jeff Probst. Although I 'm certain "Whose Line Is It, Anyway" and "Survivor" are almost the same show. It is very. very good. He had a 2+ hour podcast a couple weeks ago and it rarely lagged at all.

(I also listen to Jay Mohr, Adam Carolla, and This American Life, like Nonlinear.)

Assuming many of us have the ability to record ourselves, this is what I had in mind. Something a bit more formal; consider this to be drawings on a white board. Four or five guys each record a four or five (or what have you) minute segment. On whatever topic they want; wide open and a blank canvas. Record in MP3 format. Then one guy "hosts" (and that can be rotating); it would be hosted in a radio format. And we stream it and make it also available for download/podcast convenience streaming. But the first streaming will be at an appointed hour and go "live" like Swamp Radio.

In a completely hypothetical world (stress "hypothetical"), it would sound like this:

Let's say, only for example, one of us was hosting the fist episode. (Remember this is all MP3s stacked up just like Swamp Radio used to be)

1. Opening remarks, comments, free space
2. Swamper Podcast recording #1
3. Host. Intro the next recording.
4. Swamper Podcast recording #2
5. Host. Intro the next recording.
6. Swamper Podcast recording #3
7. Host. Intro the next recording.

. . . and so on. Again, a blank canvas. We can add tunes in there, anything in there. Even recorded Skype conversations, scripted or otherwise, between the lads works as a segment, eh?

My reason for that framework is so Swampers can craft bits for the podcast. And, as with authoring a post, it gives the author time to edit/refine themselves before posting. The thing about a phone call is all of the uhmmms and uhhhhs. Not that there's anything wrong with that, in our context. But we really could some up with a slick "show" if we put some effort in to it. I'll volunteer to help in any way.

Who knows? It might even result in an increase in membership.

I listen to quite a few podcasts here. I think part of it is that its just nice to hear American voices, without the accent.

The ones I listen to regularly:

Steve Czaben show - national sports talk out of DC
Hang up and Listen
BS Report
Filmspotting - movie reviews and stuff.
Sound Opinions - Music reviews, interviews and stuff
Doug Loves Movies - Silly movie trivia games, hosted by comedian Doug Benson
You made it weird - Comedian interviews by Pete Holmes
WTF - depending on the guest. His recent one with Dave Grohl was fantastic. And yeah, the openings are painful, but that's what the fast-forward is for
Savage Love - Sex/Relationship advice by Dan Savage, although these days its more Relationship stuff
Monday Morning Podcast - Comedian Bill Burr just ranting basically, but he also answers readers emails asking for advice

I like the storytelling/commentary idea. Maybe there is someway to combine the two ideas. A live Swampcast, with recorded bits inserted in between segments. I don't know. The live Swampcasts were entertaining. There were some pretty funny interactions on them.
