My current podcast list and 5 new ones I’m trying
@riantogo | 9 months ago | #panet

Unlike many of my friends I’m not that into podcasts. There are a few good ones that I used to listen to pre-pandemic on my short commute to work. Now that I’m going back to the office on a more regular cadence I have dusted those off and catching up.

I’m looking to explore and expand my list, but not finding much success. Most of the podcasts these days seem to be groups of people informally chatting about their opinions on trending topics. Don’t get me wrong, some days those are quite enjoyable. My biggest issue is that often episodes are hour plus and the knowledge I’m deriving is not much for the amount of time I put in. Also it is also hard to separate expert opinions from casual commentary. If you are having better luck, do share your list.

Here is my list in no particular order:

Freakonomics Radio

Freakonomics co-author Stephen J. Dubner uncovers the hidden side of everything. Why is it safer to fly in an airplane than drive a car? How do we decide whom to marry? Why is the media so full of bad news? Also: things you never knew you wanted to know about wolves, bananas, pollution, search engines, and the quirks of human behavior.

This Week in Startups

Jason Calacanis covers startups, tech, markets, media, and all the hottest topics in business and technology. He also interviews the world’s greatest founders, operators, investors, and innovators.

How I Built This with Guy Raz

In each episode, founders reveal deep, intimate moments of doubt and failure, and share insights on their eventual success. How I Built This is a master-class on innovation, creativity, leadership and how to navigate challenges of all kinds.

Business Wars

Netflix vs. HBO. Nike vs. Adidas. Business is war. Sometimes the prize is your wallet or your attention. Sometimes, it’s just the fun of beating the other guy. The outcome of these battles shapes what we buy and how we live. Business Wars gives you the unauthorized, real story of what drives these companies and their leaders, inventors, investors and executives to new heights -- or to ruin.


The next 5 I’m going try:

Happy listening!
