I tend to look for podcasts with opinions and discussions and interviews, not so much ones that are time dependent - TWiT is the exception.

One that I’ve gotten into recently is Who Cares About the Rock Hall? The host is obsessed with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and his co-host could care less about it. They have various guests who come on and make a case for the induction of a particular band or artist.

Thanks very much for explaining why you like a particular podcast rather than just listing a bunch of them.


Some friends of mine make a podcast Hard Times & Weirdness. They’re a married couple in The Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band, a Country Blues band, traveling the world playing as many as 250 dates a year. The show is about their experiences on the road, playing music, meeting people, the difficulties finding bandmates, managers & merchandise people who can handle this lifestyle.

One thing they do is completely different than most musicians who constantly complain about only seeing the inside of green rooms or airport lounges is to make sure they actually see the places they’re visiting. They’ve played 37 countries… and fished in 35 of them.

My favorite of their episodes was number 48, with their guest Captain Vinny, a charter fishing captain in Florida who tells the most astounding fish story I’ve ever heard.

Nearly as good is episode 11, about a run-in with the Motor City Madman.

Yeah, I find a cold-sell on title alone a tough pill to swallow, so figured others would as well. I decided to hyperlink, too, since this is a community message board, and that much likelier to benefit others to save the copy/paste/retype. :+1:

You might enjoy “50 Years of Maximum Rock’n’Roll”. There are only 15 episodes, but they are all legendary sound engineer Bob Heil talking about his career in sound.
