    Normally I listen to a small collection, but I'm looking to expand to a few non-sport subjects: couple from Grantland, Fantasy Focus on ESPN, and the Basketball Jones.

    Any suggestions or favorites, even if also sports related?

    Joe Rogan's Podcast - Best IMO

    Duncan Trussell - Pretty funny

    Boers and Bernstein - Sports talk radio out of Chicago. They treat callers like crap and have more inside jokes than you can imagine.

    Neil Tyson Degresse - Space talk......hit and miss but entertaining no the less

    I love Podcasts!

    I listen to Adam Carolla every day, and I listen to some of the other shows they have (Ace on the House, Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend, etc.), but not as frequently. I also listen to This Week with Larry Miller, and I'm VERY glad he's back.

    I occasionally listen to Grammar Girl, Mohr Stories, This American Life, Travis Rodgers Now, and a couple others. I also listen to Security Now! from TWIT every week.

    Love podcasts. I spent a lot of time doing artwork and when it comes time to do tedious stuff like inking, shading, and filling backgrounds, I always have one playing in the background.

    My comedy faves are WTF with Marc Maron (very good in-depth convos with comedians. You always learn a lot about the industry), Adam Carolla (just 100% hilarious all the time), and Grantland (Jalen and Jacoby crack me up. Hollywood Prospectus too.).

    For sports I go with the BS Report (great sports talk without the ESPN PC filter), Basketball Jones and Eye on Basketball (NBA duh), RocketsCast (Rockets duh), and Football Today (good NFL discussion 5 days a week).

    Politics I go with Left Right and Center (views from all sides in a civil manner), and if you're into movies, nothing beats going through the archives of Filmspotting and Now Playing to listen to lively discussion about your favorite flicks.

    For the next month I'm driving a sprinter van to Dallas and back 6 days a week with no radio.... So fun being a companies trainee!!

    Anyways just got into the world of podcasts, had always listened to loveline with dr. Drew and saw they had a pod cast.

    Never really listened to Adam carolla growing up, but wow he is amazing on his show with drew.

    I'm going to check out a few of y'all's recommendations, I don't like listening to music on the road too much anymore. Thanks for the advice!!
