Missing the edutainment of Caustic Soda. Last Podcast on the Left has its points of convergence, but just lacks the bone of skepticism.

Oof.

I miss Caustic Soda. 

I wish the guys well though.  Hope they're doing great things.
Well.  There it is.

Wasnt somebody here going to create a stream where old soda episodes would release one by one weekly?
Or am I imagining things?

This is my OPML feed at the moment. The podcasts are roughly in the order that I listen to them. The last three (Spark, Brain Science, White Coat) are a large archive of episodes at this point. I listen to them in batches on long drives.

That was me. I haven't yet worked out a way to do so that provides a nice easy rss feed without actually spending money on it.

Just picked up The Tolkien Professor.  The Venn diagram of this podcast and my wheelhouse completely overlap.  7 years of back-episodes to enjoy.

I love "new" podcasts that have years of episodes for me to catch up on. I'm definitely listening to this one.

Current Events:
Africa Today (BBC)
Common Sense with Dan Carlin
Global News Podcast

Miscellaneous:

After Tuesday I'm going to have a huge hole in my week when it comes to podcasts. I am listening to so many podcasts that may persist after election day, but are putting up much more regular episodes in the meantime.

This is just a list of podcasts that have ramped it up during election season, or that I may not find interesting anymore after election season:

NPR Politics
POLITICO's 2016 Nerdcast
The Run-Up (NYT)
Vox's The Weeds
Slate's Trumpcast
FiveThirtyEight Elections
With her
The New Yorker: Politics and More
Slate's Political Gabfest

That's over 6 hours of weekly audio that I'm going to have to fill. Might be time to re-up my Audible subscription.

Is Joe Rogan as painfully bro-centric and non rational as I imagine it to be?  I just remember his moon landing denial stuff and can't bring myself to even try, even though I've occasionally enjoyed some of his stand up performances.
Well.  There it is.

SoF do you try to diagnose the Twip case of the week?  I'm awful at them but I usually don't use google.  Got the malaria one from a few weeks back.

Eiynah of Polite Conversations interviews Sam Harris this week, who I don't always agree with but usually like listening to. I haven't played it yet but it promises to be a "robust discussion". You will have to have nearly three hours to spare though.

Yeah, he's definitely a stoner meathead.  He generally gets good conversations out of guests, though.  That's the draw.  If the guest's interesting, the content's interesting.  And he's popular enough to have had lots of great guests.  Off the top of my head, Neil Degrasse Tyson, Dan Carlin, Cara Santa Maria. 

And while he's dropped the moon landing denialism, he's still pretty out there on a lot of shit, interviews a lot of cranks.

Nice!  But afraid not.  I'm terminally behind, mostly listening five or six episodes at a time at work.

Having finished two Haruki Murakami audiobooks I am now listening mostly to a podcast called TANIS.
It is a join-the-mysterious-dots affair with a fictionalised slant on real life events. Very good. Highly recommended.

My commute has been decidedly surreal for months now. Everything seems meaningful. Symbolism abounds.
