idk what you guys use to listen to podcasts but mine has a +15 seconds button that you can just hammer away at until you hear the person's tone change to something that sounds like a real subject is being discussed

If I'm working, driving, or whatever, the last thing I should have to do is hammer away on a button cause the host wants to talk for 15 minutes about their weekend, if your podcast is supposed to be about a subject, jump in. Best podcasts are the ones you don't need to do anything to

the newsie one is one of my faves and has been mentioned.  the egg war is maybe the hardest I've laughed at any at parts.  The dolphin is an early classic.

I haven't listened but I am hoping the abbie hoffman ones are good, because there is a ton of material there.

I liked the John Delorean one.  Any of the rich family ones or company ones are good.

I listen to it going to bed.

So I set an hour sleep timer and then have to rewind until I remember the next night.

30 - 45 minutes is about the right length for a podcast episode.

Interesting discussion about the implications of the Allies demands for "unconditional surrender" at the start of this episode. This demand ensured that the Axis would fight on to the bitter end - but on the other hand the Allies didn't feel that they could let the Axis end the war on their own terms. He keeps talking about "human lawn mower"... I'm gonna finish it but like I've said before I think the WW1 series and Ghosts of the Ostfront were both better.

Loved the Khan series. WW1 was pretty not bad too.

I generally prefer 1-1.5 hrs on 1.2x. I feel like 30 minutes is really short?  I’m looking forward to listening to the latest HH on the drive back to Kansas for the 4th if I can wait that long.

It is a good reminder that I need to go back and reread WITH THE OLD BREED by Eugene Sledge. Third best war memoir I’ve read  (behind THE THINGS THE CARRIED and THE SORROW OF WAR).
