Probably my favourite podcast. Their episodes have made me think, laugh, cry, be in absolute disbelief. Rarely a bad episode.

I was so stoked to discover TLDR soon after getting into Reply All, as it’s pretty much the same show, made before they joined Gimlet.

Free advice from three of the world's most qualified, most related experts: Justin, Travis and Griffin McElroy. For one-half to three-quarters of an hour every Monday, we tell people how to live their lives, because we're obviously doing such a great job of it so far.

Where do I start. The McElroy brothers are hilarious, but also just seem like great people. Always one of my go-to podcasts.

Criminal is a podcast about crime. Not so much the "if it bleeds, it leads," kind of crime. Something a little more complex. Stories of people who've done wrong, been wronged, and/or gotten caught somewhere in the middle. We're a proud member of Radiotopia, from PRX, a curated network of extraordinary, story-driven shows. Learn more at radiotopia.fm.

A podcast I often listen to when I just want something light or comforting to listen to. The Smirl sisters are intelligent, sweet and funny.

Welcome to Oh No, Ross and Carrie, the show where we don’t just report on fringe science, spirituality, and claims of the paranormal, but take part ourselves. Follow us as we join religions, undergo alternative treatments, seek out the paranormal, and always find the humor in life's biggest mysteries. We show up - so you don’t have to.

Awesome show. Ross and Carrie try out religions and pseudoscience “so you don’t have to” and then report back.

Serial is a podcast from the creators of This American Life, hosted by Sarah Koenig. Serial unfolds one story - a true story - over the course of a whole season. The show follows the plot and characters wherever they lead, through many surprising twists and turns. Sarah won't know what happens at the end of the story until she gets there, not long before you get there with her. Each week she'll bring you the latest chapter, so it's important to listen in, starting with Episode 1. New episodes are released on Thursday mornings.

Who doesn’t love Serial. I’m not a big True Crime listener, but once you listen to an episode of this you’re hooked. Season 1, at least...

There are a lot of fads, blogs and strong opinions, but then there’s SCIENCE. Science Vs is the show from Gimlet Media that finds out what’s fact, what’s not, and what’s somewhere in between. We do the hard work of sifting through all the science so you don't have to. This season we tackle football concussions, heartbreak, 5G networks, sleep, magic mushrooms, free healthcare, police use of force, asteroids and more.

If you want a basic, science-based overview of a topic like chiropracters, meditation, GMOs, to name a few, then this is a well-produced light podcast.

I better include Smodcast since it was the show that opened the door to podcasts for me! Kevin Smith and Scott Mosier are pretty interesting to listen to and often have little nuggets of wisdom.
