lol I can see how you would get that impression but my desire to share this is authentic

inb4 HI RUSS!


Just summarise the 'highly-relevant' points for us here so we can read them


Unemployment rate rising. There is two proposed culprits. Is it the declining manufacturing sector? Or is it bideo games? Food for thought.


>Unemployment rate rising.
Not in the US or North America in general.


It's talking about workforce participation (different from the unemployment statistic) among young men


There is a thorough description of the podcast content on the linked webpage.


Any good recommendations for podcasts about anime? No politics or any of the other dumpster fire bullshit. Anime-related podcasts only.


All the podcast I can think of mostly talk about the whole of the animation industry (meaning a lot of talk about cartoons) and only a little bit about anime.

I mean I am sure there are anime only podcast but I haven't listened to any.


i can't really focus on audio only podcasts so the only 2 i'm watching are joe rogan and lex fridman
whenever i try to find other podcasts on youtube all i get are comedians talking about retarded shit


Only worthwhile recommendation in the whole thread.

Red Scare makes me feel cozy to listen to they are often really dumb and talk about things that are disgusting or make me feel like a piece of subhuman garbage but their voices are really nice and comforting


I misread it as book instead of band. Now that'd be interesting.


People, especially young men, are working less and taking more leisure time. Mr data whisperer thinks this is not because the labor market is weak, it is just that they are being supported financially by their parents and video games are more fun than working because overall men's happiness levels have been increasing. The guy interviewing him spends a few minutes jerking off about how hard he works then calls it "deeply depressing" that people are working less.


>overall men's happiness levels have been increasing
I am not listening to this libertarian propaganda, did they really say that? How do you even know such a thing? Couldn’t you interpret it the other way ie they are playing games because they are unhappy?


I listened to a few more of these and I fucking hate the host. He is so ridiculously biased towards the rich and the system that enables them to own everything because he's rich himself. He doesn't even try to hide it, he literally said that it's a good thing that wealth is self sustaining and there's a ruling political class that is just born into it because the wealthy rigged the game for them. He is a disgusting champion of the current order and uses disingenuous and spurious arguments to defend it. Some of the guests are good and some of the discussion is interesting though.


>Couldn’t you interpret it the other way ie they are playing games because they are unhappy?

That's exactly what the conversation is about…


I just remembered an old podcast I found years ago and found it's still running.



>The Professional Weirdo Podcast with M dot Strange

If you know who M dot Strange is then you probably know what you are in for.
If you don't you still might enjoy him as he is a loner eccentric artist who does rather large projects mostly on his own, including creating 3 full feature length animated films, wrote books, made music, and is currently making games.

He also is surprisingly positive with a fuck everyone else and just do it kind of outlook when it comes to creative projects.



fash the nation


It's 2020. The whole 'alt-right' thing is dead. Internet White nationalism has declined dramatically since Charlottesville made it too real for the underage /pol/ larpers.


except it hasn't. We are probably on the cusp on another big surge given the riots hence the banwave to preempt it actually. AR organizations were snipped and their platforms are underground but the membership never declined. Anyways, FtN is still the top ranked podcast in this sphere even if allsup has a long way to go if he wants to match Jazzhand's shoes


i miss Halberstram.

I don't care much for her politics, but I liked this travelogue Greta did.
>Climate activist Greta Thunberg urges world leaders to do more. ”Doing our best is no longer good enough. We must now do the seemingly impossible,” Thunberg says in the Swedish Radio show “Summer on P1” where she takes us along her trip to the front lines of the climate crisis.



It was pretty insightful the first time I listened to it and now I'm going through it again. Basically a cognitive science perspective on the so-called meaning crisis and various philosophical approaches throughout history.



war nerd radio, the hosts are pretty likeable even though i don't agree with everything they say. they're left wingers but of the fairly reasonable type.

Aufhebunga is basically the podcast that left politics has been crying out for. 1. it's not america focused. They do episodes that have in depth focus on the political scene of various countries. Recently did some on Serbia, Singapore, Lebanon and the UK for example. So in that sense you get a broad education. 2. it's a marxist leaning podcast not a radlib one.



Has anyone else noticed that a disproportionate about of podcast seem to come from California and be by far leftist?

Anyway, I like most things produced by Parcast Network
Unlike a lot of shit their stuff is actually properly scripted and really well produced. It is professional and they keep their personal politics out of the subject they are covering.

My favorites are their true crime stuff and their show Cults.


Sean Carroll mindscape - theoretical physicist who interviews whoever he finds interesting so it's a mix of biologists, physicists, social scientists, and random people.

Lex Fridman - AI researcher from MIT who seems to interview all kinds of famous thinkers.


Thanks for the links Mr.phone user.

But really though they are interesting.


So much of their shit is behind a paywall. Unless there is a way to listen to it for free?


>is a marxist
>puts most of their stuff behind a paywall


Been listening to a show called minds of madness.
It is really good if you are interested in true crime type stuff.


A podcast on… assassinations of famous people throughout history.


When Marxists talk about redistributing wealth, it's as long as it's not THEIR wealth

I really like dead rabbit radio. It's about crime, paranormal stuff, conspiracy theories and stuff like that. Jason, the host, seems like a pretty decent guy and he doesn't talk about politics at all, something that is a rarity among podcasters. Sometimes he's pretty silly but I enjoy it nonetheless. The only thing I don't like is that the episodes are pretty short, around 30 mins, so when you catch up you have only half an hour a week of podcast. There's still over 300 episodes so you have a lot to watch.


Do they have a script or something like it or is it off the cuff babbling about a topic they googled or skimmed a book on?

I am burned out on low quality unscripted shows.


It's a single guy, he does have a script but he often talks about random off-topic stuff, but doesn't deviate from the subject that much.


A lot of that is networking where they have access to the people running the networks and search engines so they get promoted up it.

He reads /x/ on 4chan. You can often catch him in a thread and find an episode soon after.


Started checking out this podcast about cybercrime and security called Darkweb Diaries.
Same format as many true crime shows I listen to, only more about hacking, breaches, and fraud then murder.

If you are into true crime and tech related stuff I highly recommend it.



The podcast is called Undesign and it's two middle-aged guys talking about table-top role-playing games. When they talk about specific ones it's usually the various editions of DnD, Shadowrun or BattleTech. Otherwise the topics relate to specific aspects common to games of this type. They apparently have a list of topics from which they select one by dice-roll each episode and then talk about it for 15 to 25 minutes. Sometimes it's just fun to listen to them recalling anecdotes, sometimes it's insightful to hear them analyse specific aspects of games from a player, GM or developer perspective. However, the last episode was published last summer so it has been on hiatus for a while now.
One of the two hosts (which is an unfitting word since there are no guests) is Vincent Venturella, whose name will probably already be familiar to some who might be interested in this from Warhammer Weekly - his his other podcast with more participants which is also currently still active and can be found on YouTube. As the name implies it's about Warhammer - primarily Age of Sigmar - and also episodes can easily be over two hours in length.
I like to listen to both of these during my nightshifts on the weekend because it's more mind candy and pleasant background noise than serious business and hard facts and it doesn't matter too much if I don't pay attention every once in a while.


The mental Illness happy hour. The stories are rarely amazing but most guests are normies unfortunately. The reader letters are really eye popping


Found yet another true crime podcast I "like".

Human Monsters.
It isn't for the faint of heart. The first few episodes are about child abuse and it gets into extraordinary levels of detail.

It's one of those kind of shows where by it even existing on several platforms it proves that the censorship is totally bullshit when done or those platforms.
Like they will censor alex jones or joe rogan over wrong think meanwhile this podcast describes a toddler being tortured and raped for years in medical detail for a hour and a half is a-okay.

Anyway it also goes into detail about the investigation, trials, and punishments too. So it isn't just suffering porn or whatever. It's more like someone reading case files without holding anything back and adding in news clips and interviews to give full context.
Once you get over the horror of some of the cases it's actually a little dry in presentation but eventually the guy who does the podcast does start branching out by doing interviews.

Wouldn't recommend if you aren't already into true crime as it doesn't sugarcoat how fucked up humans can be.


as someone struggling with mental illness, I really enjoy the mental illness happy hour. the host actually talks to people via email and gives a fuck. most of his interviews are normie as fuck but some have really interesting back stories. I plan to be on there someday to talk about my journey of autism and MDD/PTSD to neetbucks



I remember seeing that in the listings but something about the descriptions and episode titles made me think it was just more progressive propaganda using the the meaning of psychology as a weapon.

If I am totally wrong I would be willing to actually give it a chance.


well duh paul gilmartin the host is a progressive as alot of podcast hosts are. i just avoid the lgbtbbq/tranny stories but honestly i havent seen much propoganda on most of the episodes.

If you dont have alot of time his "best of episodes" are usually pretty entertaining. heres a good one i listened to recently. this guy was in gangs all his life and did 20 some in solitary:



Carlin is fantastic. One of the few podcasts I have to sit down and concentrate on. Too good to listen to while occupied.

I also enjoy

>Joe Rogan

Not overrated. He can be a bit annoying but he is very down to earth and "real". His deep curiosity, style of questioning and layman perspective make him the perfect guy to talk to interesting people. And he interviews/chats with MANY interesting people. He has 1600+ episdoes, many 3h+ long, and I've found out about many amazing ideas from his podcasts, despite the fact that he is a "meme" for lack of a better term. his podcast is my favorite because of the sheer amount of interesting discussion, guests, unfiltered discussion about edgy topics, and the way the conversations are very natural (nothing like MSM interviews)

>Trash Taste

3 youtube ecelebs talk about life in japan, otaku culture, and talk shit about life. they are normies through and through, but it's nice to listen to a good quality podcast about otaku culture with 3 friends that have excellent chemistry


reviewbrah/reportoftheweek's podcast. very comfy feeling, the guy is a wizard through and through, totally owns it, lives how he wants. lots of varied discussion with mildly interesting perspectives


podcast about people and places that are extreme, such as isolated islands. talks about how they live and what life is like there. nice window to another world


in depth dive into historical revolutions. only listened to the french series, but I loved it

>jordan peterson podcast

I don't like the guy much but he has interesting guests and drives good quality discussion


>Darkweb Diaries
I love it its like historical modern scifi

I like Andrew Hubermans and Lex Friedman podcast
