I absolutely love this feature every week! Thanks for exploring the wide world of podcasts out there.

My suggestion for you would be NSFW Show on the TWiT Network (http://nsfwshow.com/). But only the video version, as the audio version can be draining with the visual bits. (The live broadcast with pre and after shows are definitely worth exploring.) It's rare that there's a show with such a rabid, loyal, and truly interactive fan base (chatrealm) and with a labyrinth of inside jokes and references that must be baffling for new listeners. Also, it's a comedy show that is a true anomaly because the other programming is straightforward tech news. I would be very interested to hear your thoughts.

I first listened to the F Plus around the time of the Earwolf Challenge and ended up feeling about the same as you did Colin. There's unquestionably solid entertainment value there but it's in the same way as there's entertainment value in shows like Cops or Horders. One may laugh at and be engrossed by the human tribulations on display but one also will very likely feel as if one should take a very hot shower afterwards. Possibly with a wire brush.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on the New York City Crime Report podcast one day.

For your consideration: Robin Pierson's The History of Byzantium, which launched last May. Taking the end of The History of Rome as his jumping-off point, Robin is following the fate of the Eastern Empire from 476 forward. With enough encouragement, he's planning on taking the story through 1453, presumably with the fall of Constantinople. This is basically a continuation of Mike Duncan's podcast (Robin started just a few weeks after Mike wrapped his end of the story), with the early episodes filling in details about what was happening in the East while the Western Empire was falling apart. At this point it's also more or less a continuation in style, since Robin is taking what you called in the History of Rome review the "serial audiobook approach", but he very comfortably inhabits that niche.

You got me started on The History of Rome, so I might as well return the favor with this. :D

Love your reviews! My suggestion would be The Story Song Podcast. http://storysongpodcast.podbean.com/ It's music comedy / review show that focuses on the lyrics of songs. The hosts have good chemistry, and get a lot of comedy mileage out of examining things that weren't really meant to be thought about to much. It's a very interesting way to look at music. I'd really love to hear your thoughts.

Interesting to hear another perspective on Chris Gore Colin. I've never really jived with what he lays down, and even found him somewhat creepy a couple of times, especially when he's been on shows with attractive female co-hosts (Who Charted? comes to mind), so it's good to hear a point-of-view like yours.

Good call.

Also, I assume since you've heard THoR you've heard Mike say that the 12 Byzantine Emperors podcast by Lars Brownworth was his own inspiration, but just in case you haven't ... http://12byzantinerulers.com/

Oh, we're buds now. In fact, he just did my show.
