I love podcasts. They allow me to get to know incredible people that would otherwise be impossible, and do so in a very intimate, honest way. I like listening to podcasts while I’m doing other things like chores, commuting or falling asleep. I think it’s one of the best things that is happened to the Internet and I’m so grateful they exist. Heck, I even had one and I think about reviving it almost every day.
I think we’re still at the infancy stages of podcasting, with so many people still to be reached and new ways to consume them. I would love to have a way to have podcast episodes transcribed so that I could go back to the information that’s shared in them. I would also love a way to know what episodes of what podcasts are the most popular. Find out what my friends and people I follow are listening to and enjoying. A Good Reads of sorts for podcasts.
If anyone reading this want to take a shot at either of them, that would be amazing.
This list is my simple solution to the problem of sharing my favorite episodes: I’ve created an RSS feed that you can subscribe to using your favorite podcast app, in which I’ll be adding the best podcast episodes I listen to. If someone wants to create a tool to make this easier, that would be great! I’ve been thinking about doing it myself for a while now.
So anyway, I hope you like some of my favorite episodes of my favorite podcasts in the last year or so:
The Tim Ferriss Show
This is one of my favorite interviews of all time. Joe is incredibly talented and his story-telling is amazing. This interview is packed with humor, wisdom and great, great stories.
The James Altucher Show
I’ve been a Tim Ferriss fan for a long, long time. I find it super interesting how he’s managed to do extremely well in a wide variety of fields, learning things from scratch, quickly becoming an expert at them and then sharing his knowledge while making a business of it. He is usually the interviewer in his podcast and rarely appears on other ones, but when he does, he leaves gems like this one.
The Joe Rogan Experience
Joe Rogan’s podcast has been the single biggest discovery since I started listening to podcasts. I’ve changed my mind at so many things since I started to listen to the guests that Joe brings to his show. From hunting to psychedelics, the number life-changing experiences that you can learn about in his show is big. This episode is one of my favorites. Jordan Peterson is a clinical psychologist who has really strong and deeply researched opinions about what makes us happy.
The Joe Rogan Experience
I was first exposed to Rhonda Patrick on Tim Ferriss’ podcast but I think I like Joe’s interviews better. She’s become one of my go-to sources of knowledge when it comes to nutrition, aging, and related diseases. She is super smart and some of her knowledge will blow you away. She also has her own podcast, where she talks about all these subjects. It sometimes gets a bit too technical, though.
I’ve always been interested in the World Wars, two conflicts of absolutely mind-boggling dimensions that took place right here, in Europe. I’ve never heard someone talk about history the way Dan Carlin does, he kept me equally amazed and horrified during the narration. Must listen.
If you like this list and would like to subscribe to it, Good news! You can add this RSS feed to your favorite podcast app (see how here) and you’ll be notified when I add a new episode to this list, just like any other podcast.
And if you have a favorite podcast episode that you think should be on this list, please let me know.
Happy podcasting 🙂
