My podcast listening usually fluctuates between what I am interested in and what I do while listening to podcasts.

In the past, it has been a lot about software and business, and I was usually listening while taking walks.

These days I usually listen while training at the gym, so my focus is not quite there for something profound like software or business.

I do not have a true favorite, so please ignore the order.

  1. Bill Simons - I wouldn’t say this is my favorite, but certainly the one I listen to the most. Bill talks a lot about Basketball and Football, which are the two sports I enjoy the most (especially with a spin and some gambling). There is also a fair amount of celebrity/pop culture, which I skip 9 out of 10 times.

  2. New Heights. - This is a relatively new podcast from the Kelsey brothers in the NFL. It is by far the best athlete-driven podcast I have come across. It will be interesting to see what happens after the season is over (and more sadly if/when Jason retires)

  3. The Steam Room - Ernie Johnson is great, and Charles Barkley is a living legend. Enough said.

  4. All-In - Rich guys discussing business/politics/etc. It probably shouldn’t be as funny as it is, but so be it.

  5. The Tim Ferris Show - This might be my longest-running podcast subscription. I started to tune out of the body hacking/etc. stuff, but I have come back for the other interviews. Tim does a great job digging in on questions, and his pre-research is top-notch. Even when someone is there with the goal of selling/launching something, you walk away with some deep insights.
