I'm stuck in a Podcast rut, listening to the same people over and over. I'm looking for suggestions. Thank you!

Investing is easy, set up a three fund portfolio using index funds with an asset allocation that fits your risk tolerance. Then just contribute, don't listen to the noise and stay the course.

See the Wiki for all the information you will need.

If you're at all interested in intelligence/military/espionage/Cold War history, try Spycast. It's done by the National Soy Museum. I enjoy most of what I listen to there.

Thank you. This is the type of stuff that I'm interested. I travel a lot (150+ flights this year). And I'm just starting to train for a half ironman. I'm looking for interesting (maybe learn something), longer form podcasts.

Dan Carlin either Common Sense (current affairs) or Hardcore History are great ones.

A Cold War Podcast (Cam & Ray) very detailed look at the Cold War but there is quite a bit of off-color/juvenile humor, it is definitely a different look at the Cold War. They are 50+ hour long episodes in and still haven't finished going through causes or have finished WWII. They also have podcasts on Caesar, Napoleon, and WWII.

Serial (NPR)

S-Town (NPR)

Crimetown

Revisionist history by Malcolm Gladwell is really interesting. Recently listened to the story of how One guy made McDonald fries 99% less delicious. Amazing what one man and a few million dollars can do. He has very different topics, so there is no chance of being in a rut, every cast has a totally different subject, ranging from the story of a think tank during the Vietnam Nam War to whether laughter and social protest are friends or foes.

It's related to a Corn museum.

But only fair to warn you, especially if you have hypertension - it's high in sodium! :D

I really like Tyler Cowen's podcast, Conversations with Tyler.

S-Town was also really interesting.

Plaidavenger.com

This is the website of a Virgina Tech professor. He posts videos and lectures about geo-political news and events, explaining how the world works. If you are investing in international stocks, this is a 'go to' site.

And, he is really fun, which helps on long business trips!

I hardly ever listen to the radio anymore.

Here are some of my favorites, no particular order, (I use Podcast Addict on my phone):

Dan Carlin's Hard Core History - very long (3-4 hrs each) but interesting.
Crimetown - series about the gangster Prince of Providence, Buddy Cianci
Criminal
Freakonmics - interesting economics lessons
My History Can Beat Up Your Politics
Ted Talks
The Moth - Personal stories told at stand up events
The Way I Heard It - Mike Rowe, the dirty jobs guy. Very short stories similar to the old Paul Harvey "The Rest of the Story".
Waking Up - Sam Harris
Phil Ferguson - some decent investment advice, though he's a strong atheist.
Sincerely, X - From Ted. Similar to Ted Talks, but anonymous due to subjects.
Reasonable Doubt - Adam Corolla and attorney Mark Garagos.

Here in the D.C. area I go to see Tyler live. On Wednesday I will see him with Larry Summers and later in September with Mary Roach.

Is a webcast the same as a podcast? I'm so confused with this Wide World of the Web stuff. :confused

Since you're interested in long-form podcasts, why not also audiobooks? Probably available for download from your public library.

Podcasts not already mentioned (I think):
Radiolab
On the Media
Backstory (US history)
We cannot absolutely prove [that they are wrong who say] that we have seen our best days. But so said all who came before us, and with just as much apparent reason. | -T. B. Macaulay (1800-1859)

I seem to be the only one who thought the Soy Museum was because the Russians had milk allergies. :(

+1:
Freakonomics
Money for the rest of us
Tim Ferriss

Another suggestion :
99 percent invisible - Good design podcast, sometimes political but often just design history.

No.

Podcast tend to be audio only and can be automatically downloaded. For example I get NPR's Up First delivered to my phone each morning so I have something to listen to on my way to work. I can download a slug of fictional podcasts onto my MP3 players that I can listen off-line when I am out and about.

Webcasts tend to be a combination of visual and audio. They tend to cover live events. They can't be downloaded onto your portable device.

Russians have a 300-year history of using milk as an invisible ink to bypass censorship. Soy milk is more invisible.

Does soy "milk" brown like the real thing. As a former dairy farmer I take umbrage with plant products being called milk. The EU agrees with me.

I have to check the Russians registration of their invisible ink with the EU.
