There was a jocko willink podcast about the rape of Nanking recently that was brilliant , and one that had an interview with the American who has spent the longest time as a POW which was also great. You have to filter out the bro stuff either side of his interviews but the interviews themselves are often fascinating.

The radiolab one about hoarding was also great, and Chris Jericho’s with a survivor of the Great White tragedy


#23

Had others popping into my head all day.

The Radio Diaries episode on the background to Billie Holiday’s Strange Fruit is good. A hard listen though. http://www.radiodiaries.org/strange-fruit-voices-of-a-lynching/

Mystery Show was one of those podcasts that I found more enjoyable than interesting. The ‘Belt Buckle’ episode was really touching though. https://gimletmedia.com/episode/case-3-belt-buckle/

Also, a few good Mortified ones. It’s slipped in quality in recent months, but some of the earlier ones are brilliant. Numbers 15 (Tynan - "Peace! One Love!) and 25 (“Why I hate the SATs”) are well worth a listen. http://getmortified.com/podcast/

Cheers! I’ll give that a listen.


#25

This episode of Heavyweight about a guy trying to get his CDs back from Moby…

That’s the one. 30 solid minutes of crisp manufacturing detail.

Starts from 26 minutes in


#31

William Friedken on WTF is a personal favourite.

The Obama episode is pretty cool too. .


#32

Dr Buckles’ Michelin voice seconded.

Also, I laughed my jaffas off recently when Bob (on Athletic Mince) did impressions of both Marcus Rashford and Phil Jones. Perfect.


#33

I highly recommend this. My eyes got a bit wet.


#34

Second quite a few of these above, and I want to add 23 Weeks 6 Days from Radiolab:

Absolutely beautiful story of a couple talking about their premature baby. They revisited the story again quite recently, as well.


#35

Hmm. Didn’t seem to want to embed that.


#36

This is flippin’ great.
