I'll get the ball rolling with a few recommendations....

WTF with Marc Maron-One of the best interviewers out there. If you can get past the constant neurosis and self-doubt, this comedian-hosted podcast towers over the glut of other comedy podcasts.

This week is with the actor who played Christa-phuh on The Sopranos, Michael Imperioli.

Isometric-A videogame podcast that focuses on current games, but also discusses deeper issues that affect the industry, like sexism and representation. 2 of the 4 hosts you might know are Brianna Wu and Maddy Myers.

Good Job, Brain!-A cool trivia podcast with a different topic each week. It's a bit like an American-style QI.

    Hey folks! Since this is a podcast thread and I DM a podcast, I'm gonna drop a link.

    http://www.thatdndpodcast.com/episodes/32
    Quick synopsis of events so far
    Party (Wreckateers) has become the town saviors several times over for a city named Axis, the biggest city in the continent.
    They've stopped an incursion of Orcus cultists, headed to another town and won the fighting tournament and then shortly thereafter deposing the corrupt as hell leader.
    They came back to Axis and found out there was all sorts of bad shit going on in town and that pretty much from the beginning folks have been making blood sacrifices to some bad dudes (elder gods!)
    Now they're working out a way to take care of said elder god. Most of the other gods are a bit terrified of it. So that'll be fun.


    If anyone wants to give us a listen, feel free! Let me know what you think. Always looking for listener input and questions and critiques and such.

    If you enjoy it, we'd love it if you subscribed. We drop a new episode every monday and have been going since May of 2014, so there's some listening material if you are interested in D&D or listening to people talk about things.

    So... I need to research Vikings, for novel-writing reasons.

    I figure one good way is to get a bunch of history podcasts and absorb the information.

    Any suggestions for good history podcasts that cover the Vikings?

    I know plenty of people who would be happy to provide you with a detailed historical account of the vikings, particularly about the endless struggle between them and their fiercest competitors, the packers of Green Bay.

    I don't understand the nail polish. I know he's talked about it before, but it doesn't seem to fit his personality.

    I have met Jonah in person and he is legit one of the nicest dudes I have ever met

    so's Kumail actually

    but the Jonah smugness really seems to be part of his stage persona, which is weird

    Yeah, I don't understand nail polish, period. That said, I don't really need to understand other people's fashion choices. As long as they're happy with how they look, it's all cool.

    I like it.

    I don't think there's anything really to "get" about it. If he likes it that's cool. Anyone can wear whatever color nail polish they want.

    People were talking about the Daily Show in the last few pages of the last thread so it seems relevant to mention that they announced his successor, Trevor Noah. His stand-up special is very funny and he's a sharp guy, so I'm cautiously optimistic.

    He's also nowhere near big enough to be bringing in his own writing staff, so I expect everyone will keep their jobs unless they don't want them anymore.

    Yeah, I would imagine he's just going to slide right in with pretty much the same staff

    Maybe bring some people he knows from South Africa, but I don't think he'd come in and clean house

    Bill Murray just shows up on Letterman whenever he feels like it and does whatever he wants

    I want Jon Stewart to do that on Colbert's show

    Stewart being excited about Trevor Noah definitely makes me feel better.

    I'm still kinda surprised at myself about how much Stewart leaving the Daily Show bums me out, especially since I don't even get around to watching it that much anymore.
