    I know this thread has been started a million times before, but I still hate NPR and ESPN's offerings as I do my SS&S routine and drive to work. I am neither Conservative nor Liberal (but maybe a little more of the latter), I just want to get the news and have a laugh before I slag through another workday. I have had enough of JB&B, Tom and Bob (still love how Howard refused to even acknowledge them) here in the Midwest to last a lifetime. I have tried Indie on Sirius and that is not good. Can't go O and A as I refuse to pay for another subscription (although I think Ron Bennington is amazing). I can do better music with my iPhone shuffle than the music channels. And God only knows I am so sick of THSS when it is live and the harrible replays of the current or the stripped of funny "best of" replays. If there was one show that could be picked up to replace the revolution, what would it be? And if it's a podcast, please tell me the route to loading it and playing it without adding another hour to my morning routine.

    I don't know what to tell you, pal....there are some good podcasts out there...but I'd keep my SiriusXM account just for O and A, Ron and Jay Thomas alone.

    I am a huge coast to coast fan although the commercials are really long.

    Pay $7 per month and you can download it on Itunes without commercials.

    I find Carolla to be a blow hard that talks over every one of his guests. but I will check out Trussel and Pierera. Thx.

    I haven't actually heard a Ron and Fez show since they were part of the Ron and Ron show way back when in Tampa. But even then I knew Bennington was the anchor. That dude is a funnyman's funny man.

    Locally I like Howie Carr on WRKO in Boston. Problem is it's AM and the radio in my 2003 Ford pick-up truck doesn't get good reception for it.

    I think Joe Rogan Experience, as someone already mentioned, is one of the best podcasts you can listen to. Amount of pop culture bullshit is kept to a minimum and you learn a lot and you laugh your ass off.

    Another interesting podcast that I started listening to is NoAgenda by former MTV VJ and the guy who started podcasting. The show is extremely interesting and
    they go over the news from an alternative point of view.

    I just can't stand that nutjob Alex Jones. He's a money grabbing fear monger. If you want the alternative news without insanity, check out No Agenda.

    I occasionally check out C2C webpage to see which guests they have on but I almost never tune in anymore. C2C is unlistenable with Noory at the helm. Almost every fucking show is about conmen and conwomen who can talk to dead or can tell you your future from your birthday or about angels or some other bullshit like that. Noory's clearly afraid of dying so he constantly has these scammers on his show to lessen his fears.

    Noory is also a horrible interviewer. He obviously just reads questions that his pre-interview staff have prepared for him and he rarely asks followup questions as if he's not even listening to what the guests are saying. He's also never called out one of his guests for spreading lies & bullshit.

    Art was completely different from him.

    I actually like that guy guy from Vegas that they sometimes have on on Sundays… George Knapp. He's intelligent and has interesting guests.

    On Saturday night they play classic art bell shows before coast to coast starts.
