Which podcasts are you listening to? (UPDATED)


(UPDATED: November 10, 2013) Back in early July, I asked on Facebook and Twitter for a list of your favorite podcasts. Here’s what you said back then. I also included my own list at the end. I’ve made changes to it since I posted this originally. The first update was in August 2013, the next in November 2013. Feel free to add more in the comments section at the bottom.

And here’s what I’m listening to. A couple notes: I listened to WTF for about the first year or so, but after a while I stopped. To my ear, it was too much focused on Maron and not enough on the guests. I listened to This American Life until this happened. Jen Kirkman’s podcast was getting too relentlessly negative, so I skip that one now, too. And as of October, 2013, I stopped listening to Le Show because of some disparaging and sexist remarks Harry Shearer made about labor reporter Sarah Jaffe.

If you’ll allow me a bit of a plug, I’d like to recommend my own show, The Jazz Session. Even if you’re not into jazz (or don’t think you are), I think you’ll find something to like in these conversations with artists about how and why they do what they do.

Here’s my list. New shows (as of November 10, 2013) are in bold type, and shows I’ve stopped listening to look like this. Other than the shows noted above, I’ve stopped listening to the others mostly because there aren’t enough hours in the day.
