    @JaimieT  I’m so glad you like TNC!  I love it and am always trying to work it into conversations with varying degrees of success.  If you’re on Facebook come join us in the FaceGroup, it’s so much fun and we have a really great community (honestly it feels like a Trek themed BM group sometimes with how cool and supportive everyone is).  I’m “Lee Perry” on Facebook (which is a story for another day) and I’m pretty active, maybe I’ll see you there!

    https://m.facebook.com/groups/102540367068458

    Whaaaaat, the forum where people are expected to use their real name is a nice place? Say it ain't so!

    It was encouraging during the racism stuff here recently to observe where things fell in real names v. fake names. Shame is still a factor, and that's awesome. Anyway I'm guessing Freiberg is the story.
    Well, “real names” might be a bit of a misnomer.  I actually use my real name here, Freiberg is my last name and what most people call me in the real world; Lee Perry is one of my favorite musicians so I use that everywhere online except here, it’s my nom de internet exactly for the purpose of being harder to find (not impossible, just harder for hateful idiots).  And that’s the gist of the story, I used to work for a racism, misogynistic, homophobic, you-name-it-ist guy who would tag me in his hate speech and I was having no part of that, so I just changed my name to the same thing as an octogenarian Jamaican man and all the sudden I stopped getting tagged in men’s rights memes and good ol’ boy threads.  But I agree, watching the racism stuff burn through BM was a sight to see, especially watching ARon put down the hammer of god on some hateful shit!

  • I just wanted to stop by and throw in a recommendation for "lost in larramah." It's only 6 episodes, all less than 30 minutes, and it's a fascinating story. 
  • I started listening to Welcome to Night Vale recently (yes, I'm 6 years late).

    It's basically a fake radio news station that broadcasts from a town where Twilight Zone style things happening is part of daily life.

    @aki Alie is the best! She's the greatest dad anyone could ask for! ;)
    haha.   I also pay for her podcast (along with Baldmove)!

    Also, I got the House Snow t-shirt from baldmove, and a couple of Ologies t-shirts as well.   I listen to Ologies on my way to work, and I wish the drive was longer so I could listen to the whole thing while driving to work.

    One of my favorite moments of Ologies was listening to the cosmology episode (with Katie Mack);  As a student during her exchange program in England, she was asked to do a presentation on black holes in front of Steven Hawking.  During the presentation she heard Hawking (or rather his computer voice) say "yes", "no", "maybe", "I don't know" and really stressed out at the thought that she was upsetting him.    After the presentation she asked other people in attendance if she had offended Dr Hawking, and she was relieved to find out that he wasn't heckling her...  Dr Hawking was simply eating his lunch, and the computer was picking up his face movements and selecting the most common phrases he uses ("yes", "no", "maybe", "I don't know").

    As with many things I discover, my latest podcast favourite is one that was mentioned in a comment on Oh No They Didn’t - Cocaine and Rhinestones. It’s about country music - the commenter who mentioned it described it as You Must Remember This but for country music rather than Old Hollywood. The host is very earnest and quite charming - he does this little liner notes section at the end of each episode that is often a bit jokey and self-deprecating, and I just love it (and him). I guess you’d have to have a vague interest in old school country, but I do, and having grown up with parents who were big into it, I know a lot of even the more obscure singers and songs he talks about. 

    TL;DR Cocaine and Rhinestones is delightful. 

    I am also big into Pod Save America and Lovett Or Leave It at the moment, which I came to via my worship of Ronan Farrow (Lovett’s partner). I did have a reasonable awareness of the ins and outs of American politics before, but these podcasts help to fill in my knowledge gaps and they’re very interesting, if occasionally inspiring rage.

    @Dee I just got turned on to Cocaine and Rhinestones a couple of weeks ago. Did you listen to the Spade Cooley episode yet? Holy shit that man is a monster! Absolute piece of shit. (I think I mentioned it in this thread earlier but I don't feel like looking but I didn't realize it was hosted by one of the guys from Your Favorite Band Sucks. Also a favorite of mine)


    I just started listening to Behind the Bastards. I'm two episodes in and already hooked. The first one I listened to was basically about what was on Osama Bin Laden's hard drive and it's pretty interesting. And I'm now listening to an episode about how Steven Segal is even more of a monster than you realized. It's very funny.

    I've started going back through Low Budget FM shows and god damn I wish they were still up on iTunes. The stuff they were doing in 2011 and 2012 was just fantastic. I bought the collection so luckily I have them all saved, but I wish I could spread the word and I think they're finally gone.

    A couple little tastes:

    I listened to the Spade Cooley one a couple of days ago and wow. And they were going to let him early after what he did! Must be nice to be famous. Oh well, he got his comeuppance. 

    I had not heard of Your Favourite Band Sucks. Another one for me to check out!

    Omg, I just found "The Pat McAfee Show 2.0" which launched in September, and wow it's an amazingly entertaining behind-the-scenes sports podcast.

    Until 2016, McAfee was a top 10 all-time punter in the NFL and possibly the best onsides-kicker ever


    The guy is hilarious and has a great natural talent for hosting a podcast and doing entertaining ad-reads. Definitely check out the interview with Dan Patrick episode from Tuesday.. On iTunes and Spotify.

    So for the week it's:
    2x Baldmove for Golden Age of TV & LWJA
    2x Chapo Trap House for politics,
    2x McAfee 2.0 for sports, and
    1x Revolutions for history

    that fills out 10 hours / week of walking my dog.

    - K&J Recaps
    Sister-in-laws who recap various tv shows (Stranger Things, Westworld, Walking Dead, etc). They are endearing and hilarious and remind me of a female version of Jim and A.Ron.

    - Fast Break Breakfast
    A degenerate gambler, a hard partying aspiring chef, and a sugar fueled stay at home dad talk breakfast, life, and the NBA from Nashville Tennessee.

    - Commonwealth Club
    Podcast of talks given at the Commonwealth Club of San Francisco.  Topics are hugely varied but can range from politics to climate change to business to social issues to profiles of interesting people, etc.  I always feel smarter after listening to one of these.

    - Recode Decode
    Insider look at Tech and Silicon Valley with long time antagonist Kara Swisher.  She hammers the tech execs but they keep coming back for more.

    - Radio Atlantic
    Podcast hosted by The Atlantic's executive editor.  Lots of topic variety like the Commonwealth podcast but a little lighter with more humor mixed in.

    For the record, Baldmove stuff is in my Top 5. And I'm going to post more by creator than individual podcast.

    1) The Greatest Generation/The Greatest Discovery/Friendly Fire - "A podcast by a couple of guys who are slightly embarrassed about having a Star Trek podcast." They first started off as a Next Gen podcast, but has continued on to DS9. The second is about Star Trek Discovery. The third podcast has the two hosts plus a third history buff, and all three watch and review war movies, which range from traditional war, to the war on terror, to Aliens.

    2) Giantbomb/Beast Cast/All Systems Goku - Giantbomb is a videogame website, and they have a podcast that just celebrated 10 years. They split into East and West coast teams so there is now GiantBomb East, or BEast. And then one person on each coast decided they had been actively avoiding anime so long that maybe they might finally cave in and try out Dragonball Z (Actually the abridged Dragonball Kai), and they are discovering that for the first time.

    3) Drunks & Dragons/Sayer/Brute Force - A dungeons and dragons podcast, a first person sci-fi horror podcast, and another tabletop podcast but not the D&D gaming system all by GeeklyInc.

    4) Secret Life of Weddings - A podcast where two wedding photographers read stories from brides/grooms/maids of honor, DJs, photographers, and any and everyone related to weddings who want to reveal the dirt on how weddings have gone bad or how brides became bridezillas or how hotels completely screwed over their guests etc. 

    5) Bores, Gore, & Swords/Doesn't Sound Like Anything to Me - Probably the most direct comparison to Baldmove. They cover GoT and Westworld, and then do one off reviews for other shows on the off seasons. (One of those one offs ended up being a full season review of Counterpart.)

    A couple of.... more like audio plays rather than podcasts, with full on voice cast and sound effects

    1) We're Alive - A zombie podcast that is complete and done. ("We're Alive: Lockdown" is a short spin off made after the main show completed)

    2) Wolverine: The Long Night - The main characters are two FBI agents investigating a murder in Alaska and Wolverine happens to be in it. It's still on going.

    Some niche phototraphy podcasts that most people wouldn't be interested in:

    1) Wedding Photographers Unite

    2) Wedding Photo Hangover

    3) The Family Photographer

    @Anominal Oh man I love me some Boars, Gore and Swords! Their Westworld and GoT coverage is my favorite after Bald Move.

    Cheers for this, I checked it out for Counterpart, which nobody talks about, and saw they have a snippet on Patriot! 
    I'm really looking forward to next season of Patriot, 2 weeks!

    Yay! Happy that at least one of my suggestions was helpful.

    And yeah, I got turned on to Counterpart because of them because of how enthusiastic they were about it, but also because you're right, no one else is talking about it.

    But before you get too excited, their WYSBW (What you should be watching) epsisodes are usually just one episode on the first, or first couple?, episodes of a show that they're recommending. Counterpart was the rare exception where they decided they liked it so much they did a full season, episode by episode. (But for some reason didn't make it a separate podcast.
  • @Anominal Thanks for the heads up, and for Patriot I really don't want a full autopsy anyway. That series is so damn unusual I'd rather not be too influenced & I just want to digest it on my own.
    I listened to their wysbw; took me a while to get used to the laughing but was right in sync with how they saw the show. They have a really fun mix of insight and laughing. 
  • AnominalAnominal San Francisco Bay Area
    @Kate23 Yeah. I was a little thrown off by the one laugh at first. It seemed so fake. But eventually I realized that's really just how he laughs and just accept it as part of him. They do have good chemistry together.
  • I'm not usually into fiction story podcasts, but I'm half way through a binge of Gimlet's "The Horror of Dolores Roach."  More of a thriller than a horror story, but a good listen for the season.

    I cooled on this a lot, starting right after that post.  Good setup, but the payoffs on the big questions were disappointing.  You can probably do better, IMO.

    While unpacking boxes after my move on the weekend, I binged on Your Favorite Band Sucks, which I found via Cocaine and Rhinestones (same host). It’s basically two guys ranting about how terrible a different band is each week. I’m not really interested in music, so I don’t get upset when people don’t like what I like, but if you’re a super fan of one of the performers they go off on you could be offended. I particularly liked the U2 one, even though hating Bono is pretty much a law these days. The Weezer one made me squirm a bit - I love me some Weezer but I hate being reminded of how skeevy Rivers Cuomo can be.
  • I just discovered 3 Songs Podcast with Bob Nastanovich from Pavement and Mike Hogan. Basically they each pick 3 songs and talk about the bands and it spins into stories and examination of the music. Great flow to it. Just a couple of friends chatting about music. Not the same as J&A, but sharing that sort of conversational ease that they have. I really recommend it for music fans. If you're into Pavement jump to #50 where they do the Pavement episode. It's just a joy to listen to. You find out about the time Gary Young hit Bob with the tour van. Tons of great context for their run as a band. Kind of being a fly on the wall where one dude tells his friend stories and thoughts about his time in the band. Very, very cool stuff.

  • The Ringer just started a Shea Serrano podcast called Villains. I listened to the first two about Hannibal Lechter (a root episode and a Q&A) and it's really fun. They get into the character and have a lot of fun banter. Good times. Definitely worth a spin if you're dialed into the Ringer type sensibility.

    Post Show Recaps
    Red All Over - Kelly (formerly of Up Yours, Downstairs) and Molly examine The Handmaid's Tale episodes weekly and have both serious discussion and also get kind of hilarious
    Best of Friends - because, Friends ♥
    The Way I Heard It - Mike Rowe's podcast where he tells short stories (he's such a talented narrator and I *love* his voice)


    3/4 of this list has changed for me.  I no longer listen to Best of Friends, and I burned out on Red All Over.  Honestly, everything I listen to is Bald Move related, and I still listen to Mike Rowe's podcast (could listen to him read the phone book :love: )   But yeah, not much compares to Jim & ARon.  :star: :heart:

    I like BG&S too - much more comedy focused than Bald Move, so it's a good complimentary podcast to have for Thrones. And they have even have had Kelly from "Up Yours Downstairs" on as a guest, so there's a direct Bald Move link.

    They also covered the pilot of Bodyguard recently, which I was happy for since I binged that show and was looking for some talk about it.
