2 from Wondery Sports wars & Inside Start Wars. Good listening if you can over the ads and dodgy voice overs

Only stumbled across Sports Wars the other day. Even though I have no interest in the NFL, I really enjoyed the Favre vs Rodgers story. Looking forward to listen to the rest of them now.

Sam Harris talks to Jared Diamond - very very interesting talk.

JAred Diamond was great, but Sam just seemed to repeat "You can't have a conversation about X without being called Y".

Una & Andrea's United Ireland:
I listened to a few of these today (Antrim / Dublin, and might start Mayo in a while).

It's not nationalist (as the name may suggest).
32 Episodes, 32 Counties, 32 questions.

Few episodes into the Charles Manson season of the You Must Remember This podcast. I knew the gist of the Manson story, but it's mindblowing to hear the extent of it. The podcast itself does a great job of tying the story to what Hollywood was like at the time. Really enjoying it - started listening after reading that you'd need to know the ins and outs of it to fully enjoy Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.

Searching for a horror podcast. I started listening to The Magnus Archives recently. On season 3 and very much enjoying it. Think little stand alone ghost stories where a few of them start to link together over the course of the show.

Here's a few horror pods that I listen too...

The Something Scary Podcast
Scare You To Sleep

Both tell very good horror stories.

If you're looking for something along the same lines but a little more light hearted, try The Parapod. One of my all time favourite pods.

I've just recently stumbled across Revolutions and it's incredibly good. Each season focuses on a different revolution, I'm about halfway through the French Revolution and it's well researched and presented. It's a period of history I have a lot of knowledge and interest in but I think it's also quite accessible! Looking forward to branching out into the other seasons too.

I've been catching up a lot on Red Handed, which is a true crime podcast that is really well done and has a good balance between famous cases and lesser known ones.

has anyone been listening to Conan O Brien needs a friend, the first season was very good with excellent guests but the two Dana Carvey specials have been hilarious.

O Brien may not be too everyones taste but he can be alot looser on this as can his guests.

Finished this - well worth a listen.

TMA is good alright. Fair play to them for using a Creative Commons license also.
