Does anyone pay for any of their podcast? I was doing the above deal, but they are upping their premium stuff to $5/month or $48/year. They were using the Amazon link (like I do) for a third of their income and Amazon just kicked them off of the program. They are full time guys who went from making $100,000+ to $40k to be podcasters. I will re-enroll in their new prices because I really enjoy the podcasts they put out.

Bmyoungs, did you listen to the 4 year old episode of Tested? It makes me want Gary back...and even Will. I still think Jeremy is my favorite host for the show, he just seems like a great dude.

I still prefer the current cast since I've never like Will.

It took me until they were talking about the cost of 4k TVs before I realized it was an old episode.

Update on Good Job Brain and why they haven't been posting very much for the past year.

Updating my list.

Weekly listens:
This is only a Test - tech podcast that you have all heard me talk about. They started covering VR 5+ years ago and are the reason I got the bug
Lunch With Jim and A.Ron - off topic with the 2 hosts from Bald Move. This is a podcast you only get when you're a paid subscriber. #whyamibraggingaboutthat?
Vr Round Table - have only listened to a few, but dudes talk about VR

TV Shows, when I watch new episodes:
Game of Thrones - BaldMove
Watching Westworld - BaldMove
Watching Dead - Baldmove
Better Call Saul - Baldmove
The Wire - Unspoiled
Legion - Baldmove

Ad-hoc:
Trivial Warfare and Good Job Brain - Jocelyn and I listen to these on car trips
Fatman On Batman - they don't post as regular and I only listen when it is a review for a movie I've seen or talking about nerd news
Bald Move Movies - again, only when it's a movie I've seen
Ace on the House - comedy handyman show. I listen to the episodes that DON'T have Adam Carolla. I think Adam's lifelong friend, Ray, and HGTV's Eric Stromer do a better show without Adam
I Was There Too - extras from movies tell their stories of being on set. Listen when I know the movie
Still Untitled with Adam Savage - only listen for movie reviews

Series that you should all listen to while on a road trip:
Missing Richard Simmons
S-Town
Serial (season 1)

Quite the list. Can you listen all day while working? I basically only listen while driving or doing various house/yardwork.

I mostly listen while getting ready and driving. I can listen while working but it depends on what am I doing.

Going to check out Cracked Podcast. I saw Cracked has a movie podcast, but you need to be Stitcher premium to get the backlog. Lame.

Cracked had a movie podcast. Since cracked laid off a number of their most popular writers, many of those writers went into their own ventures.
Here are some of the movie podcasts that came from that.
Small Beans: Frame Rate
Small Beans: Coen Brothers Brothers
Best Bad Movie Ever
Story Mode: We Just Watched

You should start a podcast where you just talk about all the podcasts you listen to

Started a Cracked one today. All about presidents. I don't care about president history really at all, but they are making it fun.

This reminds me of Good Job Brain back when I liked it. We never got back into it after they returned after their long break.

I've started listening to podcasts while on leave. My friend recommended "Lore" and I've been enjoying it. They're about 20min, perfect for during feedings and each episode tells a different folk lore story. The last one talked about a haunted hotel and the end circled back to how it was Stephen King's inspiration for "The Shining."

I'll add the cracked presidents one to my follow list!

I've started listening to podcasts on 1.5x speed. My goodness, that has increased my listening productivity by 50%. It took a few podcasts to get used to the speed changes. Now I only really notice it the intro/outro songs.

I've heard on other podcasts that they do this. I could try 1.25, 1.5 seems like it would be so fast. Maybe I'll try!

I tried it once before but didn't like it. Then I was so far behind on podcasts from vacation 2 months, I turned it on out of necessity to catch up.
I don't know what you use as your podcast app, but Apple podcasts only does .5, 1, 1.5, or 2 times speed.
