I was recently asked what podcasts I am listening to and I directed them to my 2012 list. Then I noticed that list is outdated already. Here are my top 10 podcasts for 2013.
- EconTalk (economics)
- Revolution Health Radio with Chris Kresser (health)
- NPR Planet Money (finance)
- Evil Sugar Radio (health)
- Alternative 80’s (music)
- Accidental Creative (productivity)
- The Market Ticker (finance)
- Freakonomics (finance)
- Adam Carolla Show (comedy)
- House of Reggae (music)
EconTalk is by far the best podcast. Russ Roberts can take topics that seem dull on the surface and make them fascinating. Well at least to me. Economics provides a model of understanding the world that I believe applies to other disciplines, especially fitness and nutrition.
Recently I’ve been enjoying Evil Sugar Radio. Although I think they are often guilty of the same biases they accuse others as having, the show is a much needed healthy response to the food fear mongers.

I started listening to “Freedomain Radio” by Stefan Molyneux . Brilliant stuff on politics, philosophy, and entertaining ramblings from life.

Oh and, try out “Radiolab”. So much effort put into that podcast.

@Glenn – It is a fine show. Maybe I’d put it at #11. I listened to it for years, but it sort of lost its novelty. I only have so many hours for podcasts, so I mix it up every so often.
