Naked Monkey Freaky Smart Stuff: Six of the Best and Most Accessible and Most Interesting Podcasts That Are Better Than Idols


It's been four years since I got turned on to podcasts. I listen to new episodes on my commute to and from work, during my admin periods, while I'm blogging and just about whenever I can stitch a few moments together.

It's a little sad how few people I know actually listen to podcasts. How do they survive without regular doses of interestingness from Jad and Robert of RadioLab? How is Stuff You Should Know not as big a part of coffee break discussions as is the latest episode of Idols?

It has been almost two years since I published this list of 6 of the Best Podcasts for Teachers, Autodidacts, Critical Thinkers and Other Interesting Types.

I think perhaps the title scared people off. So maybe I need to make podcasts sound a bit sexier. It's time for an update.

Allow me to present:
