Does anyone have any podcasts they really enjoy? I'm looking for new things to listen to in the car on my trip to work. Thanks!

Thank you @velopig and @voyager1. If you each had to pick "one" to start with, which one would you pick? I have about a 45 min drive each way in NYC/NJ traffic.

Just search in "player FM" or other app for cycling or whatever keywords and try them out.

I'm sure each podcast has its fans. No one here can tell you which one you will like.

I'm subscribed to maybe 50 of a variety of topics. Ever once a while I find new ones, or unsubscribe from some.

I listen to them at work, in car, working on bike, yardwork etc. Really makes chores easier.

Not all apps offer the same casts. I like player fm the best for cast selection and usability and features.

The problem each of those is about a once a week pod. I use Downcast app, and when a new pops it downloads. I listen to them at work.

Every cycling podcast I've ever tried have been pretty boring. I'm always happy to give new ones a try, but since I don't follow racing there isn't much of anything else. I'm a huge podcast fan and listen to more than a few. I usually listen (in one ear, safety nannies) on my commute. Currently in my library --

This American Life (best podcast in the history of podcasts)
Snap Judgement (produced locally in Oakland)
Radiolab (nerdy)
Reply All (lovable internet goofballs)
Wait Wait... Don't Tell Me (NPR comedy)
99% Invisible (another Oakland production)
Freakonomics (enlightening)
The Daily (a bit overly dramatic and liberal)
Without Fail (not sure about this one)
Heavyweight (dry humor)
Every Little Thing (nerdy)
Embedded (beyond the headlines)
In The Dark (frightening, but not in the way you're thinking)
Serial (no current episodes at this time)

Podcast Suggestion

The Joe Rogan Experience. Each podcast is typically 2-3 hours long and he has a wide variety of people on that he interviews/has conversations with.

I like lots of these! Also would add Planet Money and the Planet Money Indicator. Reveal. Nice Try (Curbedís Utopia podcast) and Crimetown.

I am shocked, shocked no one has mentioned The Outspoken Cyclist yet. Every Saturday Diane Jenks talks about many aspects of cycling, and interviews a wide variety of interesting people. She also has many, many episodes to keep one busy.

Terry Bikecast is old, but who cares, it's Georgena Terry!
The Cyclist Pod
The Path Less Pedaled
The Spokesmen Cycling Roundtable Podcast (not so much of a roundtable any more, but loads of interesting episodes)
The BICYCLIST Experience Podcast

Finding non-racing podcasts is tricky but they're out there.

Life in the Peloton. Mitch Docker has interesting guests and really has a nice way of getting them to open up.

I followed Crimetown for season one but dropped them with the long gap between season one and two. Thanks for the heads up on season two. I spent my youth in Detroit - Dad moved the family out to California in '73 - and season two is bringing back the tensions of that time. I'm already into episode three. Reveal looks to be right up my alley. I appreciate the recommendations.

Have you listened to this series? The City by Wondery? Also a great series.

I also listen to "The War on Cars." Great transit/biking advocacy show that isn't too dry like most in that genre.

Road is Dead by our very own @Psimet2001.

Hit/miss on interest as probably half are about local Chicagoland events/experiences, but I grew up there so that still holds my attention.
There are some excellent episodes about the change in retail industry, the experiences of a pro team soigneur, why road racing is dead(multiple episodes, somehow. Apparently it resurrected itself?), and pulls in local/national guests in the industry.

None. I can't stand talk shows of any kind. I haven't turned the radio on in my truck in years.
