The Way I Heard It - Mike Rowe

A few minutes'-long telling of a - often familiar - story which unfolds kind of like a mystery. A la Paul Harvey's "And now the rest of the story". Delivered in Mike's Rowe's fantastic baritone.

Yes!! Love this podcast. Best episode: Oh Brother

(These are generally not for yeshivish people.)

Reply All (mostly but not entirely about the Internet, technology, and people)
^Try "Feral Hogs," "Bedbugs and Aliens" (first half only - the second half, which isn't really
their show, has some highly inappropriate content)
Death by Monsters (comedic podcast about "monsters, mysteries, and the unknown")
(Judge John Hodgman isn't a favorite of mine, but is worth a shot)

Board-gaming related:
So Very Wrong About Games
Shut Up & Sit Down
The Dice Tower (the Tom/Eric episodes - the others wouldn't be a favorite)
Sporadically Board (not quite as gaming-focused as the others)

PM me if you'd like to play a board/card game, online or IRL (Lakewood). (I'm not a competition-level player.)

Of particular Jewish interest is Reply All's story on Shulem Deen, "Exit and Return" parts 1 and 2.

Any audiobook recommendations?

Preferably if it's available for free from someplace.
