Great podcast episode recommendation thread
« on: April 15, 2019, 03:27:09 PM »
I thought this might be useful to discover specific podcast EPISODES (not podcasts as a whole, please. If we like the episode you recommend, I'm sure we'll have a look at other episodes... but it's nice to have a starting point).

My favorite podcast episode of the year so far is this three-part interview with Dr. Matthew Walker:

https://peterattiamd.com/matthewwalker1/

https://peterattiamd.com/matthewwalker2/

https://peterattiamd.com/matthewwalker3/

I've read his book, but somehow his interviews with someone smart like Attia are even better (because he can go deeper than in a general-audience book).

Highly recommend that you check this one out. It'll not only help your investing, but everything else in your life.

https://fs.blog/naval-ravikant/ - foundational values
https://fs.blog/adam-robinson-pt1/ - why value investing doesn't work
https://fs.blog/atul-gawande/ - medicine and making a difference
https://fs.blog/barbara-coloroso/ - on parenting

I read the Mat Walker book - found it OK and started listening to the podcast with Peter Attia but it hasn't grabbed me yet. However, Peter Attia is brilliant. My favourite Peter Attia podcasts so far are:
https://peterattiamd.com/zubindamania/ - this is the podcast that got me listening to Peter Attia; 2 brilliant Stanford MDs who are burnt out with current health care
https://peterattiamd.com/nirbarzilai/ - trying to understand the science of aging
https://peterattiamd.com/samharris/ - Sam Harris is the essence of having a conversation
https://peterattiamd.com/jakekushner/ - metabolism of diabetes and understanding glucose uptake appears to be linked with longevity research

I take that back. Am getting deeper into the Matthew Walker podcast with Peter Attia - it is very good. Until now there has been a lot of hearsay and generalization about sleep benefit. Now, Mat Walker is sharing that there is science and it is very interesting.

Glad you're enjoying it. He also did an interview with Rhonda Patrick here:

And Kevin Rose:

But he goes most in-depth with Attia.

I've been re-listening to this one yesterday and today. So much great stuff in it, impossible for me to retain it all with just one listen. If you still haven't checked it out, I recommend you give it a try, at least part 1.

I've listened to the first two episodes of the new Michael Lewis podcast and enjoyed them. It's a very journalistic approach, but it's interesting and fairly short:

I loved the Acquired podcast.  A number (nearly all) of episodes are terrific, but the one I go back to is about Blue Bottle coffee. 

https://www.acquired.fm/episodes/episode-46blue-bottle-coffee

The discussion about fundraising was really great.

There is also a subscription premium podcast with Sara Adler that is a favorite.  I can't figure how to link it, since it requires a subscription.  But there is a seven-day free trial now, so I recommend trying it out.  (Although I would recommend not starting with the first episode, on VC vocabulary, which was granular.  Not bad but not their best work.

I love the Freakonomics Radio Podcasts. They cover a wide variety of topics, some of which you might find more interesting than others depending on your preferences. This is a great one that looks at Trader Joe's:
