... of the podcasts I listen to, particularly now that THE FROZEN TUNDRA has defrosted and I can walk the earth again!
Warren Olney's "To the Point." Olney is one of the best journalists you'll find out there today. He's informed, smart, and unbiased. By taking contemporary issues and picking them apart with guests from opposing points of view, he really exposes his topic. Just a brilliant show.
Dan Carlin. His "Common Sense" show as well has his "Hardcore History" show never fail to engage me. I never miss an episode of either one. Carlin has a point of view unlike anybody else when it comes to politics and research like no one else when it comes to history. I HATED history until I found Carlin. Now, nothing else is good enough. I think so much of his work that I've donated to him.
Dan Savage, "Savage Love." Sex and relationship advice that is XXX raunchy and (usually) spot-on. Savage has made me laugh out loud, cringe, and nod in hearty agreement. There isn't a topic he won't tackle. The only way he could improve his show would be by having me as a guest.
KCRW's "Left, Right and Center." Arianna Huffington, Tony Blankley, Matt Miller and Bob Scheer duke it out on the political topics of the day without raising their voices.
Lastly, I sometimes I listen to "You Look Nice Today," which can be very funny in quirky way. It's like having coffee with three guys who might have been "Seinfeld" writers in another life. I also listen to any number of the major network news shows that I've missed if they catch my interest such as "This Week with George Stephanopoulos," "Face the Nation," and "60 Minutes."
Good gawd. What have I just revealed about myself?
