Black Mirror is back?

Last episode I saw was the Christmas special.

How does the new season compare with the old episodes?
I thoroughly enjoyed the new season! Quite a bit of variety in the episodes. I wont say more as to not spoil it.

I watched the first one last night, thanks to Jeff's and your post. Yes, very enjoyable. And a great satirical dig on contemporary society. I laughed out loud at the ending. Anywow, that's TV, not a podcast, so I should not derail this thread any further.

Not really a podcast but online lectures: Coursera, free online courses from top universities.

Retirement Answer Man is a wonderful weekly podcast that I think many Bogleheads would enjoy :D

Lots of good stuff here. The only one I really like that I didn't see mentioned (maybe I missed it) is the TED Radio Hour. Sometimes financial, but usually not. Still a good listen.

Financially speaking, you can't do better than The Room Where it's Happening--a podcast about Hamilton the Musical--finance and Independence, perfect! :D

I also like Paul Merriman. And you can listen to him at 1.5x and he comes through clearly.
NPR Planet Money

My GoTo pods:

Election stuff:
538
Keeping It 1600
And if you want a laugh, Election Profit Makers

Life Stuff:

The Gist (with Mike Pesca)

United States Policy discussions: (non-partisan)

The Weeds--Ezra Klein, Matt Yglesias and Sarah Kliff
The Ezra Klein Show--great one on one interviews


For fun:

This American Life
RadioLab
Stuff You Should Know
Revisionist History is awesome
99% invisible with Roman Mars
Serial
Lore
And the greatest baseball podcast of all time, hands down, bar none: Baseball Prospectus' "Effectively Wild"

Great podcast- it's a new one and I really hope they keep this up for a while.

I also enjoy Freakonomics, Planet Money, and a local sports show, that is if I happen to listen to it within a day or two of the broadcast (Dan Barreiro on KFAN). There are good guests on the Tim Ferris Show so I listen to some of these shows. I echo the comment of him being a little vain which is annoying.

I have listened to and enjoyed the history of Rome and the history of Byzantium, and I'm currently listening to The History of English. Fascinating and very well done.

Funny how people change. When I was in the accumulation phase, and, by the way, when the market was generally more up, I used to enjoy visiting this forum and reading about investing and money. It all seemed quite exciting and relevant to my life. Since I've retired, though, I find reading about or thinking about money or investing quite boring! I used to visit this forum every day – now, weeks go by between my visits.

Oh, yeah. I totally second the recommendation for "More Perfect" by the guys from RadioLab. Educational, eye-opening pod about the history of the Supreme Court.

I should have mentioned this earlier, but we have an existing thread for: What non-fiction tv shows or movies you like to stream on netflix, hulu ,and amazon?

Feel free to start a new thread for fiction TV, or just "What TV shows or movies do you like to stream on netflix, hulu ,and amazon?"

Mortified - They have adults stand in front of an audience and read their embarrassing notes and journals from when they were in middle/high school. It's hilarious.

Surprised this wasn't mentioned more often, my absolute fave money/economics podcast! They also have a weekend podcast "Marketplace Money" that's not quite as good, but okay.

So money/finance/economics related:
Marketplace
Morningstar (I think this is just audio from their "tv" program, but still enjoy it)
Freakanomics

Other:
Stuff You Should Know (general topics, amusing banter)
BBC Why Factor (why do we...wear ties, why are we patriotic, etc. shortish shows)
BBC In Our Time (3 academics discuss people/events/ideas/books from history)
History Chicks (focuses on women in history, very enjoyable, interesting even for women I don't think I'll care about)
