Podcasts - Watcha listening to?

Music, books, movies, TV, games, hobbies, food, and potent potables. And forum games! Pour a drink, put on your smoking jacket, light a pipe (of whatever), and settle in.

I forced myself to listen to the Munk Debate on 'Political Correctness v. Progress' and it was awful. Nothing was accomplished, anything that looked like a new idea got trampled on. The moderator was limp and ineffective, the PC side yelled progressive slogans and angrily banged their fists about a bunch of things Peterson may or may not have said about any variety of things, Peterson yarbled about hierarchy and totalitarianism, and Fry came off so mildly that his good points were talked over.

Waste of time. Do not recommend.

Agreed. I started watching it on YouTube and bailed after about an hour.

New favorite: Latino USA.

I admit I have only heard half of their episode about Oscar López Rivera, but it was really interesting and well done, and I'm excited to listen to more of their stories.

The latest Dollop podcast was pretty good. This time they look at the decidedly kooky cult Synanon, whose leader was noted for his impulsive edicts. The one requiring all members to ride Harkey Davidson motorcycles had me cracking up.

Harkey Davidson motorcycles
Is that some sort of Chinese knockoff brand?

This made me laugh way too hard.
