I have recently discovered podcasts.
The horse-related ones I have been listening to "Finding the Feel" and "Along for the Ride" with Andrea Fappani I really enjoy.

Anyhow, anyone has favorite podcasts, horse-related or not?

I don't even really quite understand what a podcast is. Given the context it's always used in I'm thinking it's probably like a radio show only via internet. Is that right?

True Crime Junkies
The Joe Rogan Experience
Raise Your Hand and Say Yes

Rise Together
Relationship Advice
The Mysterious Mr Epstein

Pretty much exactly that!

Some are actual radio shows available for download after their airing. I listen to several NPR shows this way - Wait Wait Don't Tell Me (my favorite), Fresh Air, Science Friday, and more - and also some BBC shows - In Our Time & a couple others.

Some are done strictly for distribution over the internet, such as the above-mentioned Skeptic's Guide to the Universe. I also listen to the BBC History Magazine podcast among others.

I listen when I'm doing mindless work by myself, but I'm currently about 9 months behind in my downloaded podcasts and can't bring myself to just pitch them all and pick up with the current ones! I find I (somewhat) catch up when I'm on a big home repair project, and fall behind whenever we have visitors (so I'm not alone).

@COWCHICK77 I started along for the ride last night! It's good!
Glad you enjoy it! Right now it's my favorite.

The day before yesterday I listened to the episode with Clinton Anderson. I have made it clear on this forum many times I am not a fan but I loved his interview. A very straight forward guy and he was very candid about his beginning as a clinician and almost going broke despite the huge amount of money coming in. And his burnout.

I like listening to audible books.
I only listen to one podcast, but Audible seriously changed my life when it comes to driving around town. When I have to do a lot of driving I just throw on an audio book instead of the radio. It really takes the stress out of sitting in traffic some days. Sometimes, I even coast in the slow lanes just to make sure I finish a chapter. I've got at least 2 or 3 people hooked on them as well since I discovered them.

I've struggled to find horse-related podcasts I like, but listen to a lot the same that @avjudge posted. Another really entertaining one is Spooked. I also like cooking podcasts, including Milk Street Radio and The Splendid Table. Another favorite of mine is The Moth Radio Hour- great company when I'm on the road for work.


Horse-related though, I recently stumbled on Endurance Horse Podcast- they do some really interesting owner interviews, as well as traveling around the world for perspectives at various well-known rides; inspiring for those of us working our way towards endurance. @SueC, you may appreciate the interview with a standardbred owner in Episode 24, around 10 minutes in.

Thank you, @egrogan. :) I'll put that on when I'm making quiche later. My husband has the lurgy but lit up when I said I was making his favourite quiche - I don't like shortcrust, so I make a pastry out of oatmeal, wholemeal flour and a bit of butter or canola oil (very nice flavour and crunch), and fill it with the Swiss filling from an old cookbook - ham at the bottom, pour on a mixture of beaten eggs, grated Emmental (or cheddar) and Greek fullfat yoghurt (or sour cream as per original recipe) with a sprinkle of nutmeg in it, bake in a moderate oven. :winetime:

When you've got a pile of books on your bedside table that you're trying to read, this pile has a name in Japanese (and @egrogan already knows this): Tsundoku. I wonder what the equivalent in queued podcasts is called! :)
