Friday open thread: podcast recommendations?

Do you listen to podcasts? I do. I like podcasts. I mostly listen to comedy podcasts, although I’ve recently started listening to Ear Hustle, which is pretty interesting. But generally speaking, I use podcasts to laugh, not so much to learn.

Lately, I find myself needing more things to laugh at - I’ve worked my way through a huge backlog of old pods, and I have some more listening time in my week. I currently listen to:

- Comedy Bang-Bang! (and also Are You Talkin’ REM RE: Me? And U Talkin’ U2 To Me)
- Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend
- The Beef and Dairy Network Podcast
- My Dad Wrote A Porno
- How Did This Get Made?

And these are all great. I’ve tried to listen to Punch Up The Jam, but that one doesn’t really do it for me, nor do things like My Brother, My Brother And Me.

Do you have any favorite comedy podcasts? Or non-comedy ones? Any recommendations are welcome. Share your favorites in the comments, and I’ll give ‘em a shot.

What else you got? Any fun plans for the weekend?
