170 podcasts. 288 hours of audio. That’s…a lot of audio.
I tried to organize the playlist by category, but without numbers next each podcast, it’s not the easiest to follow. Here is a super rough breakdown.
- First five: True Crime
- Second chunk: Health, creativity, philosophy, and psychedelics
- Third half: politics, news, and culture.
- Remaining: Interesting, silly, funny, whatever
Granted I’ve been building this playlist for the past 365 days, but here are some that stand out to me upon review:
