My favorite podcasts

I love podcast and now spend more time than ever listening. It is a growing business and therefore there are tons of good and bad podcasts. Let’s talk about the good ones. Here are my favourites:

Philosophize This!

No clue about philosophy, but looking for a beginner friendly educational podcast? Steven West explains everything you need to know in a genuine and comprehensible manner.

A book, a blog and a podcast. Based on the most readable economics blog and bestseller books Steve Dubner and Steven Lewitt are running a radio show and talking about the hidden side of everything.

Stuff You Should Know

This is another popular podcast where mostly science related and interesting stuff is discussed.

A very tense audio series following Rukmini Callimachi as she reports on the Islamic State and the fall of Mosul.

If you are German speaking and love crimes and thrillers you will love this podcast.

Servus. Grüezi. Hallo.

Again a gem for the German speakers. A Swiss, Austrian and German journalist from Zeit discussing issues and topics which they share.

Eine Stunde History

Short and understandable history lessons in German. They discuss historic events in a non-chronological order with various experts.
