'Today, I am grateful for ... " Callie and Jeff Dauler have been practicing daily gratitude since the early days of their relationship, leaving morning notes for each other on index cards that each started with those five words. Neither of them describe themselves as naturally positive, but they attribute this exercise with reprogramming their brain to allow them to instinctively look for the upside in any challenging situation. Callie is a talent assistant who is insightful, sensitive, and kind. Jeff is a radio personality and comedian who loves to make people laugh and usually says what everyone else is thinking. They've been married since 2016 (Callie’s first, Jeff’s second) and are working on their first human baby. (They’re already parents to two rescue dogs, Sadie and Lily.) You're going to hear real talk about real life, and you're going to laugh ... a LOT. The ups and downs of life. The exciting and the mundane and the embarrassing. Pop culture and news and whatever else comes to mind. All on the table for this show ... and all with one theme: LIVE FOR THE UPSIDE. Callie and Jeff know that sometimes, no matter how positively you want to process things, life hits you so hard that it seems impossible. That will be addressed as well, but never in a preachy, 'they've got all the answers' way. "Everyone's journey is different. We're not going to tell you how to take yours. But we want to share some things we know that might make it easier for you," is how Jeff describes their show. For more: follow @calliedauler & @jeffdauler on Instagram.
Comedians Dave Anthony and Gareth Reynolds picks a subject from history and examine it.
Heather Anne Campbell and Nick Wiger love video games. Together, they're playing the very worst and weirdest games ever made with their funniest friends to get down to this fundamental question: How Did This Get Played?
Award-winning actor and comedian Kevin Pollak has gathered five extraordinarily-talented improvisors to capture lightning in a bottle in the way that only great improv can. In each episode, he presents uniquely bizarre scenarios for he and them to hilariously bring to life.

In "Hardcore History" journalist and broadcaster Dan Carlin takes his "Martian", unorthodox way of thinking and applies it to the past. Was Alexander the Great as bad a person as Adolf Hitler? What would Apaches with modern weapons be like? Will our modern civilization ever fall like civilizations from past eras? This isn't academic history (and Carlin isn't a historian) but the podcast's unique blend of high drama, masterful narration and Twilight Zone-style twists has entertained millions of listeners.

Hi, I’m Dax Shepard, and I love talking to people. I am endlessly fascinated by the messiness of being human, and I find people who are vulnerable and honest about their struggles and shortcomings to be incredibly sexy. I invite you to join me as I explore other people’s stories. We will celebrate, above all, the challenges and setbacks that ultimately lead to growth and betterment. What qualifies me for such an endeavor? More than a decade of sobriety, a degree in Anthropology and four years of improv training. I will attempt to discover human “truths” without any laboratory work, clinical trials or data collection. I will be, in the great tradition of 16th-century scientists, an Armchair Expert.
Will Ferrell reprises his role as Ron Burgundy in his brand new Ron Burgundy Podcast! Each episode has a different theme in which Ron engages in conversation with another notable person on the topic at hand. In true Ron Burgundy fashion, these conversations have a tendency to go off the rails, and we find out things about people we never knew we wanted to know. In season 2, Ron considers a run for President, continues to perform music, and blacks out at work. In Season 1, Ron addressed important issues like bullying and the mind-expanding nature of meditation, and attempted to ultimately answer the question “seriously, what is a podcast?”
You know those podcasts where famous people recount their lives and careers, and then things get emotional? That is NOT this show! Hosted by internet superstar Grace Helbig, "Not Too Deep" is a ridiculous, silly, and unapologetically superficial interview podcast, that is more about the laffs than about the feels.
Akimbo is an ancient word, from the bend in the river or the bend in an archer's bow. It's become a symbol for strength, a posture of possibility, the idea that when we stand tall, arms bent, looking right at it, we can make a difference.Akimbo's a podcast about our culture and about how we can change it. About seeing what's happening and choosing to do something.The culture is real, but it can be changed. You can bend it.

Revisionist History is Malcolm Gladwell's journey through the overlooked and the misunderstood. Every episode re-examines something from the past—an event, a person, an idea, even a song—and asks whether we got it right the first time. From Pushkin Industries. Because sometimes the past deserves a second chance.
