The guys at Penny Arcade have branched out from podcasts to a web TV show with predictably hilarious results.
There are a lot of good episodes (PA’s crazy hire process!) but I really love this duo covering Penny Arcade’s obsession with Ping Pong and a rematch game against Bungie, the makers of my beloved Halo.
Smack talk, slow-mo ping pong action shots and an agonist sporting a sinister English accent – what’s not to like?
NPR: Planet Money Podcast – We Bought A Toxic Asset!
I wouldn’t call Planet Money a pure economics podcast – it definitely has a bit of an opinion about some economic social issues so viewer discretion is advised – but that doesn’t mean it isn’t interesting.
This episode the people at Planet Money buy a toxic asset and explain in simple language what a toxic asset is and why and how you would buy one. It is a lot more entertaining than I ever would have thought possible.
