1. The NPR Sunday Puzzle
    Each one is only 6 minutes long but I like that it's an active experience.
  2. Serial
    This podcast is getting lots of buzz. Closest thing I've found to that documentary The Staircase.
  3. Silence
    I'm sorry I don't have any other podcasts to recommend. I have been big on driving in silence for a few years now (also why you should not ask me for any lists about music from this decade).
