Podcast Listening Update - Fall 2015

2 minute read

There have been some changes in my Overcast App! Here are the latest updates to my playlist as well as this summer’s best episodes.

What I dropped

Nothing! Some things have ended or gone on hiatus, but I haven’t had to drop anything from my list, but have room for more!

What I added

Here are the new additions to my playlist since the spring.

  • Clockwise
    One of the best way to spend 30 minutes (or less if listening to at faster speed) and get some great tech news discussion.
  • Material
    Branching out to learn more about Android, etc.
  • Rocket
    Geek conversation, weekly, with Christina Warren, Brianna Wu and Simone de Rochefort.
  • Robot or Not?
    “John Siracusa educates Jason Snell about what is, and what is not, a robot.” - Quick and tons of fun.
  • Developer Tea
    A very well produced and roughly ten minute discussion for software developers.
  • Bingeworthy: Mr. Robot
    This was a great show this past season, listen to their recap. I look forward to the return of this show next season.
  • Quiver
    Arrow is a great TV show going into it’s fourth season. I’m hoping the show gets back to the greatness of the first and second season.
  • The Flash Podcast
    The Flash TV show had an amazing first season this past year. This podcast has been great to discuss the show in great detail.
  • Talking Timelords
    Doctor Who is one of my favorites, and this podcast offers up some really great discussion on the show, both new and classic.
  • Top Four
    Marco and Tiff Arment discuss their top four…anything.
  • Cortex
    CGP Grey and Myke Hurley discuss the tools of creation and how to be productive.
  • Reconcilable Differences
    John Siracusa and Merlin Mann, do I need to say more? In case I do, here you get the chance to listen to these two internet celebrities. They have some real talk about the experiences that shape us into who we are.
  • Mystery Show
    Listen to the host solve real world mysteries that you can’t find the answer to online.
  • Unjustly Maligned
    Sometimes we disagree with the popular opinion. On this show, guests get a chance to defend their choice for what others may disregard.
  • Liftoff
    Discussions about space are more relevant than ever, so tune in to this great show.
