    I know similar threads have been posted in the past, but as new podcasts come along and old podcasts change over time, what are your current absolute top 5 favorite podcasts? The ones you don't want to miss an episode of, ranked in order? Please put some thought into your chart like the now dead Casey Kasem would have done. And for our purposes the term "podcast" can also include a radio show that you often listen to as a pre-recorded program such as on the SiriusXM "On Demand" app (or with your own recording software). If you have less than 5 favorites, that's okay too.
    (OPTIONAL: After you list your top 5 podcasts, list the one podcast that you hate or just can't get into, whether because you tried it but were disappointed, you think it's over-rated, the host is a douche, or any other reason)

    1. Carolla
    2. anthony cumia
    3. Norm McDonald (which randomly disappears and hasnt been seen in months)
    4. Sports Radio 1310 The Ticket
    5. Skeptics Guide to the Universe to put me to sleep every night.

    Also, Penn Gillet, Rogan, Gilbert, stuff you should know, Dan Carlin (both), old Opie and Anthony (w/Anthony - listen to the Joe Piscopo one), and Legion of Skanks are good plus sports stuff.

    Also, listened to Serial thanks to the hype. IMO, it sucked.

    Gilbert is my favorite right now. Wasn't the crazy shit I thought it would be but it's interesting and has bouts of laughter thrown in.

    Norm's podcast was excellent and then he just decided to quit. The ones with Gilbert were hilarious. I hope he returns but I think he just doesn't want to do it.

    I just started listening to NPR: Intelligence Squared. It's a debate show. I like debate and real discussion about issues. I can't stand the shit on so-called news shows that's nothing more than rhetoric and talking over one another.
