I am curious about podcasts with high quality content but that are pretty centered around specific topics like hobbies or particular professions.

For example, there are a handful of ham radio podcasts such as Linux In The Ham Shack.

Tell me about some podcasts that keep you up in your interests or career that wouldn't make sense to share with most people you know.

I recently found the American Revolution Podcast by Michael Troy which goes intro insane details about the war. 300+ ~25 minute episodes going into detail on every aspect leading up to and during the war, with a dash of dry humor.

The Bonehead Podcast.

Its all about a single Games Workshop game, The fantasy football one - Blood Bowl. Ben the guy who runs it is just so full of life about a nice of a niche of tabletop gaming that I do enjoy it, even if I never play anymore.

The Mahabharata podcast, both the one by Lawrence Manzo and Aarti Dhand. I haven't checked in a long time, but Aarti's wasn't finished yet. Lawrence's is. Both are fantastic.

I have been enjoying Tech Won’t Save Us. It mainly focuses on the politics and unethical behavior of Big Tech/Silicon Valley. It has been an eye opener.

I miss Michael Bazzell's podcast. I'll give this one a listen. Thanks

The Fall of Rome by Patrick Wyman. It's a VERY detailed look at the history of the Roman empire.

How does it compare to Mike Duncan's?

Corecursive is an amazing podcast about software engineering that transcends the genre, IMO.

My favorite episode is an interview with Philip Wadler, the most eloquent intellectual in the world of computation by a mile.

On the topic of software engineering, I've been loving to listen to Soft Skills Engineering. Weekly questions answered on workplace conundrums.

FWIW I am also weirdly appreciative of the government accountability office watchdog report, in case this helps with direction.
