I haven't really gotten into Surprisingly Awesome. I really liked the broccoli one but the second one I listened to was the frequent flyer miles one and I just ended up feeling like they were all jerks. We listened to the mattress one too because we had to buy a mattress but it turns out mattresses are not awesome and kind of just boring.
My favourites right now are Call Your Girlfriend and Gastropod. CYG is two friends chatting about various things like pop culture, work, race and periods plus they have a lot of good guests. Gastropod is almost like a surprisingly awesome for food topics, focusing on history and science.
The History of the English Language one sounds good. My commute length has changed which is disrupting my podcast habits and a lecture style one that you can just go through continuously sounds good.
Ooh, both of those sound good.
I don't particularly like the hosts of Surprisingly Awesome, I find both Adam and Adam to be annoying. Neither of them host the Extinct Hockey episode, which is a large part of why it was good.
I am impatiently awaiting season 2 of Mystery Show. My not-so-secret crush on Starlee Kine is going to fade away if I don't get more soon.
