I think this is the last top 5 idea I have.
I really thought writing lists would be an easy way to blog on vacation, but they turned out to be a lot more work once I spent time looking them up and writing them and including links. They were a lot of fun though. Maybe my first yearly tradition for this.
This will be a list of specific episodes instead of just broad shows. There will probably be more than 5 too. Also, no links because these are hosted all over the place. If you have an iPhone, they are in your podcast app.
Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History:
Blueprint for Armageddon I-VI. This may be kind of cheating because it is a series, but it may also be not cheating because having 6 amazing episodes is harder than having just one. Either way, I am going to do it again:
Wrath of the Khans. All of them.
Hell, listen to anything and everything from Hardcore History.
Waking Up with Sam Harris:
#30: Inside the Crucible – A Conversation with Michael Weiss.
#18: The Multiverse and You (& You & You & You…)
#22: Surviving the Cosmos: A Conversation with David Deutsch
#26: The Logic of Violence: A Conversation with Jocko Willink
#34: The Light of Mind: A Conversation with David Chalmers
The Joe Rogan Experience: Language warning on this one. Lots and lots of language.
#773: Dr. Rhonda Patrick
#804: Sam Harris
#847: Dan Carlin
#852: John Anthony West
#872: Graham Hancock and Randall Carlson
The Tim Ferris Show:
I am not even going to name specific episodes here, just listen to everything. There is something for everyone on this podcast, and it will improve your life.
A few I have listened to random episodes of and really liked:
The Portfolio Life with Jeff Goins
Welcome to Night Vale
Lori Harder’s Earn Your Happy
Podcasts are the best thing in the world, I love them.
Let me know if I am missing a good one.
