rhkennerly: Podcasts I Listen To

Hi, Eric.

This is really more of a question for Rick.

Rick mentioned that he listens to a lot of podcasts.  He is such an interesting guy and I’m always looking for new podcasts to listen to (I’m the one who spends a lot of time with my headphones while trainingfor marathons :)).  I would love to get a peak at his playlist.

 Any chance he would share?




Aren’t you nice?  Sure, I’m always glad to share.  Eric & I have been talking about a podcast about podcasts, so thanks for getting us off dead center.  Here’s my current master list from iTunes.  I didn’t put in links to the shows because I don’t know what feed service you’re using.   They shouldn’t be hard to find.

The first column was supposed to be a check box, but translated to a True/False entry in some versions.  True means that I never skip that podcast.

Some notes:

  • I’m not afraid of ideas, so I listen to all kinds of podcasts.  The list is complete.  Don’t judge.
  • I am a son of the enlightenment and a citizen of the world and so I don’t believe one country has all the good ideas, so there are many English language broadcasts from Europe, New Zealand, and Australia.
  • I’m not a doctor, but I listen to a lot of summary podcasts intended for doctors.  They’re not that hard to understand.
  • I love summary podcasts, “week in review” kinds of things.  Other than the morning news from NPR, I don’t listen to up-to-the-minute news.  Weekly summaries are better for overview, thoughtful reflection, fact checking, and balance.
  • I don’t listen to every podcast.   After all, you can only listen to so many talks about “the Transit of Venus.” So I pick and choose.
  • There are links at the bottom of this page  for pdf, xls, & cvs versions that have more detail.
  • I listen at 2X on my iPhone.  Apple has a method of striping out pauses so that the voices don’t sound “funny” when speeded up.

Managing Podcasts

  1. My technique is to “refresh” my podcasts early in the morning in iTunes on my Mac. I have a Smart List called “latest” that gathers the last podcasts from the last download.
  2. I then copy those podcasts to a regular List called “today”
  3. I delete out all the podcasts in “today” that I listened to yesterday
  4. I place all the the podcasts less than 5 minutes at the top (60-earth, 60-second science, etc.)
  5. I glance over the titles and summaries for each podcast and then rearrange the ‘today” list by interest.
  6. I delete out the podcasts I’m not interested from the “today” list.
  7. the I sync up to my iPhone

(I limit “today” to 100 entries.  So podcasts drop off the bottom of the list if I kinda want to hear them, but never get around to it.  That way I never feel guilty about not hearing it and never fool myself that I’ll “get around to it”.  )

    Holy podcasts Batman! I know you give your podcast sorting explanation at the beginning of the post, but this is crazy. I never thought it would be as large as the list is. However, at the same time I see a lot of interesting things there to listen too. My wife may never forgive you for bringing this information before my eyes…and ears!

  2. says

    Well, but a lot of them are only once a week, a few once a month. I particularly enjoy author interviews, mostly so I don’t have to read the book, at least the nonfiction books. (Kurt Vonnegut once advised to never read a book if there was a movie available, not bad advice).

    And some, podcasts, like The World in 100 Objects or Shakespeare’s World (which are both excellent), are one-offs.

    So yeah, I collect good podcasts. At least it’s not cats ;->

  3. Julia says

    Wow, that’s kind of a scary list. I listen to a lot of the same podcasts, but also a fair number you don’t have listed. With my two young kids I think I probably don’t get as much time for listening. Thanks for sharing!

    You might want to check out The People’s Pharmacy– they cover recent medical research and have lots of interesting guests. Another one I like is Earth Eats, which is from Indiana Public Radio.

  4. says

    Thanks, Julia. I’ve got Earth Eats. I’ll try the PP.

    If I had two young kids, I’d listen even more. If you (or anyone else) comes up with any good podcasts we haven’t listed, I’d love to know about them.

    My list is constantly changing–some dropping off as I (or they) lose interest, new ones added.

  5. Mike says

    Thanks for posting this, I was curious myself.

    Here’s a few suggestions from my list:

    An Organic Conversation:
    Once a week. I rarely ever skip an episode of it.

    Cultivate Simple
    Once a week, new podcast that just started.

    Farm Dreams Farmcast

    The Moth
    Once a week, story telling (15 mins avg).

  6. Mike says

    Sorry for the 2nd post but I forgot a couple:

    Vinyl Cafe Stories from CBC Radio
    America’s Test Kitchen Radio
    Wild Game Hunting Podcast
    Petersen’s Bow hunting

    I listen to a few dozen more, but most are more off-topic.

  7. Bruce Berg says

    Hi Rick,

    Impressive list. I’ve found another food podcast that I like. It’s a podcast from a small public radio station in NY City. The hosts of the show talk with Arthur Schwartz, “The Food Maven”. He’s a retired food critic and has a few cookbooks. Fun to tweet with him about recipes, too.

  8. says

    I just now much like the very helpful facts anyone source to the articles. Let me bookmark your blog post along with check again the following on a regular basis. I’m just slightly specified I will discover a lot of innovative goods correct in this article! Good luck for the next!
