What is this "Caustic Soda" that everybody keeps lamenting missing all the time?

With the caveat: if you're in to this sort of thing at all, you won't want to dabble - either listen to all of them or none of them.

Hello from the Magic Tavern
Star Wars Minute
Mission Log

Basically, anything that you like that is serial rather than episodic.  Many of my favourites are interviews or chat http://sguforums.com/index.php/board,25.0.htmlshows - you can skip the odd one here and there if the topic or guest isn't for you.  But the serial ones you kinda need to be all-in or all-out.

There are a few standout episodic shows, like our favourite Caustic Soda, but they are few and far between (and even for CS there were a couple that I deliberately skipped that were one step too horrible).

99% invisible except I'm not sure how the latest episode about churches that gave sanctuary to illegal aliens really fit into a podcast about design.

Yeah, I second History of Rome. Is it still around to download? Those were pretty great and even the later ones weren't *too* long, which seems to be the thing that always happens to shows as they go along. Otherwise, my podlisteningering is not as strong as it used to but I guess I'd still list:

Undisclosed (true crime by 3 lawyers who originally got together poking holes in the state of Maryland's case against Adnan Syed)
Crime Writers On... (by the woman who produces the Undisclosed podcast. I think this one is a go-to because it reviews other true crime podcasts/TV shows/etc. and tells you whether they're worth listening to. Also it's fun in its own right)
Around the NFL (because I like football, dammit)
Speak what you think now in hard words, and to-morrow speak what to-morrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said to-day.
