General Discussion / Podcasts - What are you listening to?
« Last post by Obviousman on November 21, 2019, 07:18:17 PM »
Thought I might share what I listen to, and see what others listen to.

OMEGA TAU - Science & technology podcast, in English & German. Lots of space & aviation related topics, and highly recommended.

SKEPTICS GUIDE TO THE UNIVERSE - I'm sure everyone has heard of this.

SKEPTOID - Small 10 min eps dealing with a subject, sorting out fact from myth.

PROBABLY SCIENCE - Two stand-up comedians, both with a science background, have guests on and discuss science news. Very funny, very good.

THE DOLLOP - Two guys deal with an American history subject. Extremely funny as well as being slightly educational.

TOFOP / FOFOP - Australian comedian Wil Anderson and his actor mate Charlie Clausen prattle on about stuff, often involving Batman or time travel.

THE WEST WING WEEKLY - I loved the original series and this show reviews each episode, often getting the directors, actors, etc to give us insight into what went on.

WAIT, WAIT - DON'T TELL ME - An NPR news review comedy show. Obviously US-focused but very enjoyable.

SPACE ROCKET HISTORY - A surprisingly good podcast dealing with individual mission, spacecraft development, etc.

THE SPACE ABOVE US - Another surprisingly good podcast on the US manned space programme.

THE FIGHTER PILOT PODCAST - An ex-USN F/A-18 pilot takes us through various aspects of being an aviator: what you wear, what the weapons are, what the carrier landing signals mean, how they would intercept an aircraft, etc. Highly recommended.

SUPEREGO - PROFILES IN SELF-OBSESSION - How do I describe this? Incredibly funny (if you have a sense of humour like mine). They don't do the podcast anymore but the previous eps are available. My favourites are anything involving Cylon Jim and Cylon Phil. Especially if they are going to hit the karaoke bars.

Sibrel had absolutely nothing to do with it.  At all.  Gad, that man seems to have no shame.

Can we make a counter claim, citing that fact?

I also live in a rainforest.  Our flooding comes when heavy rains along the rivers' lengths raises the water level there.

Collection from the William (Bill) E Platt estate.  Just Google him, from Mercury  to the Shuttle programs. He was also Asst Flight Director for Apollo 11.

I mean, the US has serious infrastructure problems, but I also live in a region with a lot of rivers.  We have regular floods that are only getting worse.

When it rains, do the roads flood and cause a huge traffic jam in your countries? Is this normal to have this out there or does it cause some minister to resign if it happens?
Might be a stupid question, but some mentioned long time ago that such floods happen outside where the infrastructure should be good and it is not that it is not that abnormal ..

Our infrastructures are not able to cope with the early effects of climate change. This level of flooding is now a yearly event in the UK
