Some Podcasts I Really Like
Jun 15 2014  •  0 comments

My favorite podcasts at the moment, so maybe you’ll like ‘em too. I currently use Instacast, though I’m waiting with bated breath for Marco Arment’s Overcast.

99% Invisible
Because quality short stories are welcome any day of the week.

My Brother My Brother & Me
Because family, comedy, and bad advice are the founding principles of Amercia.

Let’s Make Mistakes
Because critical thinking is important even to non-designers.

The Talk Show
Because technology is Apple, and Apple is technology.

Star Talk Radio
Because the universe is big and scary and fun.

The Solid Verbal
Because college football.

StatCorner Podcast
Because in the world of quality Mariners podcasts there is only one.
