The first podcast I always recommend for weird history

In-depth, well-thought, researched story to start, with responses to listener mail about interesting current events and a puzzle in the second half. Sasha and her servants will make you laugh and think.

Lovely Podcast

I have ping-ponged between quite a few podcasts, and none of them ever seemed to stick. I was convinced that I was condemned to a podcast-less life until I found Futility Closet. The story topics vary enough to be interesting but vary enough to avoid monotony. The structured format of the podcast also makes it a treat!

Fun and interesting.

Fun and interesting podcast, I find the lateral thinking puzzles are particularly enjoyable.
