We often hear the phrase "People who don't study history are doomed to repeat it." It seems like that would be perfect podcast material.
"<This Thing That is Happening> is just like <That Thing That Happened> way back in the year xxxx."
Find a topic, show how it is similar to a past event, then show what happened after said past event. Obviously, there's no way you could avoid politics and such and you would be have to be careful to explain how the current event is different from the past event and what that could mean, but ti seems like that would make a great podcast.


I've heard it put that "History doesn't usually repeat itself, but it often rhymes", which is a little wanky, but it's spot on and I agree that would be an excellent podcast.

The closest I can think of to that is Dan Carlin's Hardcore History, which is an AMAZING podcast.

Shurly you mean audiobook. Because those suckers are huge. But good, so good.

Hardcore History is so damn good. The Wrath of the Khans is a great one but it's huge. I would recommend Prophets of Doom for a good stand alone to start with.

Blueprint for Armageddon is also phenomenal, and it's free right now (as is Prophets of Doom).

A curse on all of your houses!

I have been binge-listening to "Blueprint for Armageddon" since the middle of last week. I'm almost done with episode 4 - so that's like 17 hours so far.

I'm already not keeping up with my podcast list. I don't have time for all this goodness!


Seriously - this show is amazingly good.

Thanks for the recommendation!

Thankfully, it only comes out once every 3-4 months. But there's a lot of it. Wrath of the Khans is fantastic.

I got a radio in my car that can read off of USB again, so I'm actually listening to some Podcasts again.

Right now I'm working my way through Drunks and Dragons, an actual play podcast by a bunch of folks who didn't really have any RPG experience before starting the podcast (but I still find it funny and fun), and Pseudopod, a horror anthology podcast a few other people have mentioned in this thread I think.

Maybe if/when I actually get caught up with those I'll actually go back to listening to 'Fear the Boot'? IDK if anyone's ever heard of that one, but I stopped listening to it around the time FtC3 happened for some reason. (I know I'm terrible)

the Restoring History podcast is about a guy who has been working on restoring old comic books since the mid 90s.

He started out working for marvel on the masterworks series and then started his own company that does the same thing. I've only listened to one episode so far. It has been a year since he put anything out and the later episodes are really short. So i guess he podfaded.

He goes into detail about how a comic is restored digitally when all you have is the first printing of a book instead of the original art. I've been reading a decent amount of old comics so this was really interesting to me.
