What Are Your Favorite Podcasts?

I listen to every episode of Reply All, Startup, The Moment, and now, The Mystery Show. This is my podcast “A” list. If I miss an episode or two, I catch up before listening to new ones.

I have other podcasts in my feed. On Being. Homebrewed Christianity. Story Divine. This Every Day Holy. I listen to these a lot, although I permit myself to miss some episodes.

I listen mostly in my car, and I don’t have a long commute, so shorter podcasts are privileged over longer ones. Yet I have been known to sit in the church parking lot for 20 minutes or more finishing a fresh episode of Serial. I love both the narrative and the conversational form. I appreciate editing.

What are your favorite podcasts? What makes them so good?
