OK. I’ve overextended myself a bit on my podcast subscriptions.  My last batch of subscriptions included both several that update frequently, but several that have longer episodes. This makes getting through everything much more difficult.

So, anyway, here are updates I’ve made to my podcast subscription list.


Dexter Guff is Smarter than You (And You Can Be, too) – This is a new podcast that satirizes self-improvement podcasts.  Haven’t listened yet, but could be hilarious.  I’ve downloaded the first nine episodes already.

#AmWriting – This is a writing podcast hosted by two charming ladies who mostly talk about how to be a more productive writer. I’ve only listened to a couple of episodes, but so far I am enjoying it.

Stay Tuned with Preet – A friend told me about his coverage of the Manafort indictments and all that mess. I checked it out and enjoyed it, so I’ve subscribed.


Vox’s The Weeds – Too long, too dry, and too liberal for me.

HBR IdeaCast – I always unsubscribe to this one and end up coming back to it when I feel like I need more business/management content.  Still.  It’s pretty dry and wonkish.  So, meh.

Manage Your Damn Money – I really like these guys and I’ve listened to them for a few months now, but the content doesn’t apply to me very well.  It’s a longer form podcast, so I’m cutting it to save time.

The Skeptics’ Guide to the Universe – Solid discussion format podcast, but it’s long and not interesting enough for me to stick with it. I could see coming back to this later.


I noticed that when I wrote this list last time, I left off several of my subscriptions. I have no idea how I missed them, but apologies if you downloaded the OPML below and got more than you bargained for.
