Rock and roll, through the wild personas that forged its musical landscape, has certainly had its fair share of dark and devious brush ups with the law over its storied history.

The Bill Simmons Podcast - Most Downloaded Sports Podcast

Downloads Earned

The Bill Simmons Podcast is the most downloaded podcast within the sports category. That is quite the accomplishment for Simmons to pull off in an oversaturated podcasting landscape that is competing for fleeting and fickle attention spans.

Within minutes of listening to The Bill Simmons Podcast, it becomes evident to me why Bill and his prominent rotating crew of credentialed sports commentators have achieved such lofty heights in the world of podcasting.

And no, it has nothing to do with getting to hear my beloved Pearl Jam at the start of each show with Simmons having selected a live version of Pearl Jam’s “Corduroy” as his intro song for each episode.

The 9 Best Fantasy Football Podcasts To Dominate Your League With

Fantasy Football

NFL Fantasy Goes Mainstream

Football is king and that is a beautiful thing. While my interest in other professional sports has seemed to wane a bit as I have grown older and started a family, my passion for NFL football has increased tenfold and borderlines on an obsession.

There is no doubt that my love for fantasy football has fueled my continued and increasing interest in the NFL. The way that pro football is covered by major sports media these days, highlighting fantasy stats and catering to fantasy players, is a clear indication that I am not alone in this dual purpose interest in the NFL. The explosion of fantasy football and the ascension of the NFL seem to go hand in hand.

Podcasts To Listen To: Whine Down With Jana Kramer

Whine Down With Jana Kramer

Jana Kramer is a singer, actress, mother, wife, and now a host of one of the most honest and soul-bearing podcast shows I have ever listened to.

Within minutes of the start of the show, Kramer opens up and shares about her love addiction and a previous one-week marriage to a guy who was 14 years her age who also used to be married to Christina Applegate.

The admissions were flying fast and furiously at the onset of the show and never seemed to let up one bit in this debut podcast episode through iHeart Radio.

Trust issues in the marriage, fantasies of being divorced and alone, her husband’s lack of sexual proclivity and her walking home from couples counseling sessions were all bandied about at a staggering pace.

Podcasts To Listen To: Extraterrestrial By Parcast

Alien Visitations

Are we humans alone in the universe? For me, this ranks as one of the greatest mysteries of life right alongside pondering what happens after we die.

There have been some brilliant podcast episodes and series that have explored these themes. Adam Frank, a biophysicist, spoke with rather an assuredness on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast that mathematical probabilities point to the chance that there is life out there somewhere in the cosmos.

The End Of The World with Josh Clark delved deep into the Fermi Paradox, which simply yet profoundly asks if there is such a great probability of life out there in the universe then where are all the aliens?


Extraterrestrial Podcast

There is a new offering from the world of podcasting, Extraterrestrial from Parcast, that is taking a constructive look at previously reported alien encounters and doing so in a narrative retelling of their tales.

15 Best Guests From The Joe Rogan Podcast

Joe Rogan

Top Of The Podcast Game

To me, there is no one creating better podcast content than Joe Rogan. He is a prolific producer of shows and the guests and discussions are consistently compelling.

The guests on Joe’s podcast are reflective of his array of interests. The conversations are free to go anywhere, though, regardless of the guest’s connection to Joe or the industry they represent.

The Joe Rogan Experience podcast is built around casual conversations in a long-form format. While Joe is a comedian at heart, it is the recurring themes of deconstructing life that has hooked me in and kept me coming back.

The 5 Best Conservative Political Podcasts Lead By The Ben Shapiro Show

A Loss Of Shared Spirit

It is no secret that there is a contentious ether in the American political climate. This zeitgeist steeped in divisiveness has been a major theme of mine throughout many of my writings.  

Instead of a proud bipartisan representative system where spirited debate produces compromise and sensible legislation, we are dug in like a Paul von Hindenburg World War I underground trench system. Both sides blow their proverbial whistles and charge each other's trench in a futile effort to win the political day.  

Discourse in this country has digressed into name calling and tribalism with politics being centered around demonization of your perceived opposition. In a country where there was once enough shared values to handle opposing views and debate was encouraged, I fear that the civil society has withered away and there is not enough commonality remaining for compromise anymore. So where do we go from here?

Podcasts To Listen To: MarketSnacks Daily - Now Snacks Daily By Robinhood Snacks

MarketSnacks Daily Podcast

Business turns on disruptors, groundbreakers, and innovators. The financial markets seem to constantly glow red hot with a buzz and energy equal to the staggering sums of money exchanging hands from bell to bell.  

So with all these flashy descriptors surrounding business and investing why does the media coverage seem to be relegated to the old guard, stodgy personas like Duke & Duke straight out of the movie Trading Places.

Or on the other end of the spectrum, you have egomaniacs screaming full-throated on cable television about their brilliance related to options trading, a specific type of investing I will most likely never employ in my financial strategies.

If you agree that most content related to business and investing are not befitting of the highly intriguing subject matter they attempt to cover nor are they delivered for the new media-driven times we live in, enter our savior, the MarketSnacks Daily podcast show.

Podcasts To Listen To: Skimm This - Daily News Podcast

Information Overload

Broadcast news comes at us in a fast and furious pace these days on a 24-7 cycle. We are drinking from the proverbial firehose of information with much of the context and detail flying right beyond our faces.

There is also the ever-growing phenomena of hyper-partisan talking points and ego creeping into many of the shows on cable news outlets. These are shows often produced with talking heads shouting past each other with hyperbole and rhetoric.

Staying informed without getting sucked into a vortex of sensationalized stories or agenda driven editorial commentary can be quite the challenge. The world of podcasting, though, just got a brand new entry in Skimm This that is looking to be a daily resource for bite-sized, story-driven nuggets of news stripped of the fluff and filler that corrodes most traditional news outlets.
