    I'm a Postman so I get 4 to 5 hours every day with my headphones on and I'm really chewing through some stuff. I'm after science (evolutionary biology and anthropology especially), history of religion and comedy. Old sci-fi audio books are also a favourite.

    I'll give JW related stuff a shot if it's short and factual but it's not at the top of my list.

    Let me know what you're enjoying. Cheers.

    At first I thought you were going to start a podcast.

    I don't watch them so far.

    If some knows of something that is entertaining but not crude, I'd be interested.

    Sci-go books any Phillip K. Dick books.

    Podcast: The Here and Now Podcast

    Hey there nicolaou!

    Just popped in for the first time in many months and saw your post.

    I subscribe to about 20 podcasts, but one of my faves is 99% Invisible.

    Here's a quick cut & paste from their website:

    Ever wonder how inflatable men came to be regular fixtures at used car lots? Curious about the origin of the fortune cookie? Want to know why Sigmund Freud opted for a couch over an armchair?

    99% Invisible is about all the thought that goes into the things we donโ€™t think about โ€” the unnoticed architecture and design that shape our world. With over 250 million downloads, 99% Invisible is one of the most popular podcasts on iTunes and is available on RadioPublic, via RSS and through other apps.

    The website is:


    Hope you enjoy the podcast while on "your appointed rounds".

    Blondie: At first I thought you were going to start a podcast.

    I'm thinking of giving it a go. I think the exjw community needs more cranky, middle aged men telling them what's what. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Now here's one I do recommend.


    Origin Stories by The Leakey Foundation

    The "You're not so Smart" podcast.

    His language might be a little course at times but Stand-up comedian Dana Gould is a Sci-Fi movie and Hollywood History buff. You can download a lot of his previous stuff and it should keep you going for awhile.

    Comedy: Adam Carolla Show

    Knowledge: Stuff You Should Know

    I really enjoy Snap Judgement, an hour long weekly broadcast from NPR. Some of those episodes make me laugh, some get me riled up at injustice. You never know what you will get.

    Other favorites, all NPR or other Public Radio favorites:

    Radiolab, This American Life, Fresh Air with Terry Gross
