Welcome back to Weekend Podcast Recommendations! This week I’ve got a few podcasts to satisfy your cravings for anything NFL and iPhone related. If that’s not your fancy, I’ve got a couple other good ones thrown in too.
Talk Blocked: Cocaine is a Hell of a Drug
Talk Blocked was sent to me through /r/Podcasts as a potential podcast on an upcoming feature I’m working on. Cody and Steve-O (not that Steve-O) have a podcast of two musicians telling stories of their lives. They recommended I start with this episode and I cannot agree more. It’s a tail of how their friend met Rick James, let’s just say it involves a yacht and a massive amount of drugs. The story is incredibly well told, the quality of the podcast is high, and for that I’m leading it off as number one on our weekend podcast recommendations.
The Bill Simmons Podcast: Episode 122: Week 1 NFL Lines with Cousin Sal
It’s not like Bill Simmons needs the press, but now that the NFL is back, one of my favorite podcast segments are back, and that’s Bill and Cousin Sal guessing the Vegas lines for the week. It’s their 10th year of guessing the lines together via podcast format, which is astounding for the podcast medium. If you’re new to Bill Simmons’ work, or if you’re a fan of the NFL, this won’t disappoint.
The Tony Kornheiser Show: “What’s Your Thursday Show?”
Last week I featured a Bill Simmons podcast with Tony Kornheiser, in which they talked about Tony’s upcoming show. Well, here it is in all its glory. I’m a big fan of Tony Kornheiser, he’s a man of great opinions when it comes to all things sports. In this episode, they talk about the upcoming NFL season, and even features infamous 90s’ political superstar James Carville picking the games. Definitely worth a listen and a possible new subscribe.
Stop Podcasting Yourself: D.J. Demers
Stop Podcasting Yourself was #10 on my Best Comedy Podcasts of 2016, and this episode is a reason why. It features up-and-coming Canadian comedian D.J. Demers, who’s jokes start at his expense of himself being deaf, but then turns into so much more. If you’re a fan of stand up comedy, then have a listen to the team at Stop Podcasting Yourself and Mr. Demers.
Ctrl-Walt-Delete: Walt and Nilay and Lauren and Dieter go to the Apple Event
This week was Apple’s annual September event in which they announce the new iPhones and anything-else they’ve got up their sleeve. This year they featured the iPhone 7, the Apple Watch Series 2 and the weird-but-wait-to-see Airpods. Ctrl-Walt-Delete features legendary Apple journalist and friend of Steve Jobs Walt Mossberg chatting with The Verge’s Nilay Patel, so this podcast is a must-listen if you’re interested in diving into this week’s Apple news.
