PODCASTS I LISTEN TO ON A WEEKLY BASIS

You should, too, because they're pretty fantastic.
  1. 1.
    Grown Ups Read Things They Wrote As Kids
    Exactly what it sounds like. At times heart-wrenching and touching, but mostly a half hour of laughs celebrating the strange and quirky children we once were.
  2. 2.
    Ask Me Another
    Word games, puzzles, musical quizzes, celebrity guests. Hopelessly nerdy.
  3. 3.
    Wait Wait Don't Tell Me!
    The NPR news quiz. All the panelists are comedians, which makes the news that much more palatable. I'll be honest, sometimes this is the only way I get the news all week.
  4. 4.
    The Moth
    Story-telling. Live. On stage. An excellent study in how to craft an engaging narrative. Plus, most of these are just pretty hilarious.
  5. 5.
    Good Job, Brain!
    Basically, the reason I will one day kill at Jeopardy! An entire podcast of pub trivia and weird facts.
  6. 6.
    Snap Judgment
    Story telling with a beat. Sort of a scripted, urban-feeling The Moth.
