I've only recently started listening to podcasts. Well, a podcast. It's sadly over now since the show it was about is over. I'd love to find some more because I have to do an 8-hour drive frequently and audiobooks are expensive! I'm game to listen to podcasts about anything but would really enjoy something that either teaches you something or makes you laugh (preferably both!). Any suggestions?

Dave Ramsey has some. He's a financial adviser and he's very good. There are humorous moments on his show too that break up the monotony of numbers.

There's a whole series of short podcasts called Quick and Dirty Tips that are worth trying out. You'll find advice about public speaking, to finance, to getting things done quickly. I'm a fan.

That sounds like a great one! I'm going to have to give that a go later on today. Still Processing is usually pretty fun. I recommend it if you're into pop culture. If you're into history, Memory Palace covers a lot of random history trivia. It's pretty fascinating.

If you're looking for a laugh, "Talk of Shame" cracks me up. It's all just embarrassing/shameful stories that are hilarious and often relatable. I've just started listening to "Odds and Evenings," which is very math-oriented, with some puzzles and games thrown in for fun. Sometimes, it gets way over my head, but it's pretty entertaining, and it's definitely educational.

I'll second "Talk of Shame." That one is really funny. Sometimes, the stories can be too uncomfortable for me. I'm one of those people who can't watch really awkward scenes on TV without feeling super awkward myself. The same goes for that show. "Memory Palace" sounds really cool. I'll have to give that one a listen. I like listening to ones about shows I watch, too.

You should check out "Memory Palace," Ouroboros, and let me know what you think when you do. "Talk of Shame" sounds funny, but I don't know if I'd want to listen to stuff like that all the time. "Odds and Evenings" sounds informative. It sounds like it could be interesting so long as they're entertaining about it. I'll have to give that one a chance.

"Night Call" is a new show that's pretty entertaining. They cover a lot of random stuff, so the episodes can be hit-or-miss, depending on what they're talking about. It's witty and funny. "Revisionist History" is a really great one. It's done by Malcolm Gladwell, an author of some pretty amazing books, and takes a look at events/people in history that haven't gotten the attention they deserve.

If you like history an want to learn about all sorts of events, eras and historical figures try "Hardcore History" by Dan Carlin.

He's not a historian but a history enthusiast. For me, he really brings the past to life. He has a way of looking at things that encourages me to want to listen to him every day (which I do).
