Top Ten Best Podcasts

This is a listing of the best podcasts. I always struggled finding podcasts to listen to, so this list, I hope, will let you find a new podcast that you will enjoy. A brief synopsis of each podcast is provided. If I missed a Podcast you really enjoyed, feel free to add it.

The Top Ten

1 The Nosleep Podcast

Scary stories selected from Reddit's Nosleep forum where the users submit original horror stories. Basically all of them are amazing - Spark_Of_Life

Amazing productions of horror stories. Dark and disturbing and really well done.

It's pretty spooky


2 Welcome to Night Vale

A podcast set up like a radio news show in a small desert town where strange things happen and aren't what they seem. Amazing story, memorable characters. - Spark_Of_Life

3 You Must Remember This

In each episode, the host discusses a person or event in Hollywood history from the years 1900-1999. It's not boring in the slightest - I listened to ten episodes in one day. You don't even have to listen to them in order. - Spark_Of_Life

4 The Friend Zone

Three best friends discuss social issues such as mental health, self care, and dating, relationships, and health. It's not nearly as boring as it sounds. This WILL make you laugh. - Spark_Of_Life

5 Limetown

A fictional podcast told as a series of investigations into the disappearance of over 300 people in a small town in Tennessee. Horror ensues. - Spark_Of_Life

6 The Joe Rogan Experience

Shocked this isn't #1. By far the Greatest podcast ever made its not even close. - jaggu99

It's a no brainer if you're into MMA and the UFC but Joe also expands on his topics to so much more than just fighting. He is actually a genuinely smart guy who has a number of different guests on his show ranging from academics to sport stars. He combines humour with actual intellect conversation which is ever so fascinating and his upload rate cannot be beaten.

If Joe was a superhero he would be bull man, he can call bull on any situation and dosnt get tricked by complex language, truly the modern captain america

Interesting guests, great host and usually very interesting topics. The only podcast I can sit for 3 hours and enjoy every second of it.

13 DrunkenPeasants

Back in the day, this was like the Howard Stern of podcasts. One of the best features of DP that a lot of other podcasts don't have was the fan community. It was a weird niche of inside jokes, awesome quotes, and strange characters centered around the strangest group of fans that I've ever seen.

"Corme Orn God
The Rind of Zayo Dedong
G-Man and The Masters of Stupidity"

all classics

The greatest podcast in human history

They sit there and attack the Manatee's family situation...

But really, DP is amazing, it's the only podcast I really care about - mtndewlord

14 Ask Me Another

A podcast from NPR with fun games, questions, and comedy all around.

Hosted by Ophira Eisenberg, NPR’s weekly quiz show featuring puzzles, trivia, and word games played in front of a live audience is addicting.
