Radiolab + 99% Invisible = joy
Thanks for the Input, Joel -Will definitely check it out!
It's not related to design, but I would recommend anyone listen to "This American Life". It contains stories from regular people in the USA about life and everything. It's really, really good.
Some episodes I would suggest you try:
- 206: Somewhere in the Arabian Sea;
- 241: 20 Acts in 60 Minutes;
- 360: Switched At Birth;
- 513: 129 Cars;
- 482: Lights, Camera, Christmas!
My lady and I drive across the country once a year and listen to This American Life almost to whole way. It's great.
When the sun goes down we turn on Neil deGrasse Tyson's Star Talk podcast. But only when it is dark.
Along those likes, the people who product TAL have just started a new show called "Serial" that focuses the entire season on a single story. I've really enjoyed it so far.
if you're interested, make sure you start with the first one!
Nice Addition, Adrian. I have to give This American Life definitely a try as I love the show of Alex Blumberg, who produced TAL.
I'm such a podcast nerd. I subscribe to around 40, but the shows I never miss an episode of include:
- Seanwes Podcast
- The Businessology Show
- Smart Passive Income
- Invisible Office Hours
- Startup Podcast
- Grit (formerly Quit)
- a16z by Andreessen Horowitz
- The Dirt (UX) Show
- Product People
- Dorm Room Tycoon
- Design Matters
- Iterate (show about iOS design by Marc Edwards and more)
- 99% Invisible
- Pencil vs. Pixel
Also, I started a show about designers, entrepreneurs and more working in the sports industry or on sports related projects. Interviews include Under Armour's Team Sports Creative Director, a Senior Concept Developer working on Augmented Reality at ESPN, multiple sports branding folks and more.
Thanks, Adam. I'll definitely check out NYRD Radio, as I'm a huge fan of Alexis.
Stuff you should know is awesome and so is the Roosterteeth podcast which reminds me of Seinfeld with its randomness.
I'd also recommend Still untitled featuring Adam Savage and the guys from Tested.com.
My friend and I have recently launched a podcast based ok reviewing products from a design standpoint. What was the UX like? What about the aesthetics? And well even bring in the creators of the app sometimes.
Cool Website, Jonathan. I'll add it to my queue and tune in to it!
For a while my top podcasts were: ShoptalkShow, The Big Web Show, The Web Ahead, The Vergecast
ShoptalkShow still is great discussion and they cover a lot of the modern tools of the trade, but I find the, "like dude-man-bro", thing exhausting to listen to. I usually tap out at about three-quarters of the way through.
The Big Web Show recently disappointed me when Jeffrey Zeldman recently spent half hour talking about how his CSS is terrible and that he had just started using Netflix the past year (seriously, how out of touch are you?). Also the pace of the show is pretty slow. Although, he gets big names* on the show and he asks great questions.
The Web Ahead is a little more technical I think. Jen Simmons does a great job talking about responsive design, user experience, etc.
The Vergecast is awesome.
*geek/design "celebrity" makes me cringe
Thanks, Kevin! I love the Vergecast as well, but prefer looking the videos of it - since the recent revamp, they decided do don't offer the podcast audio only. So I'm currently consuming it only on their site and not as a Podcast.
Mine tend to be a bit varied in subject matter, but really love the uprise of the podcast.

"Don't forget to use Squarespace to make yourself a great website witouth learning any code! Insert the code JRE and get 10% discount!"
Joe Rogan is like my spirit animal! Ma bucur ca sunt romani ce il asculta! :D
Even works on Unix! :))
Yeah, been listening to JRE for more than 2 years now, I think...
Some people get it.
I'm fairly new to podcasts but I've been loving Mixergy and radiolab.
Mixergy is where the ambitious learn from a mix of experienced mentors through interviews and courses. http://mixergy.com/
Radiolab is a show about curiosity. Where sound illuminates ideas, and the boundaries blur between science, philosophy, and human experience. http://www.radiolab.org/
I'm a fan of On The Grid podcast, can come off as a bit self-righteous at times, but they cover a lot of relevant topics and tend to focus more on the higher level theoretical ideas, the professional practice of a moral designer, and other such existential dilemmas I tend to think about as well.
I do have to say, more and more frequently I'm left feeling disappointed at how shallow the coverage of topics are at 99PI. I personally would prefer less frequent but longer episodes, to have time to actually cover subjects in depth—might be just me though.
These are pretty good for anyone interested in startups - http://hearstartup.com/ all by Alex Blumberg from This American Life. The site's also pretty easy on the eyes.
10K Hours podcast is fantastic, definitely give that one a listen: http://www.10khrs.co/
Will check them out later, Brian! Definitely an interesting looking site.
Started listening last night. Good stuff.
