Luke has been playing video games and reading comic books since childhood. He's a bearded family man in plaid.

Doing a quick search told me that there are around 600,000 podcasts out there. Hours and hours of content covering any topic under the sun. There's literally a podcast about cereal called The Empty Bowl and it's awesome, the two hosts Justin Mcleroy and Dan Goubert have in depth, engaging conversations that are hysterically funny and definitely worth a listen. So whether you want to learn or laugh, there's most assuredly a podcast for you. So open up your podcast app and takes some notes because here are a few that I would recommend to everyone.

1. The Joe Rogan Experience

Comedian Joe Rogan hosts one of the most popular podcasts in the world. Whether you watch it on YouTube or listen on your smartphone, you are going to learn something. The JRE has some of the most diverse guests ranging from scientists, professional hunters, pro athletes, tech wizards, and some of the best comedians working today. Joe Rogan has such a great way of just having interesting conversations and with multiple episodes coming out every week, it's definitely a can't-miss.

2. The Monday Morning Podcast with Bill Burr

Bill Burr is an incredible comedian who grew up in Boston and he gives you a look into his life in his podcast. He riles himself up with current events and goes on hilarious tirades on everyday inconveniences. He even has a Thursday mini-podcast every week, where he's "just checkin' in on ya!" He has multiple stand-up specials on Netflix and is the creator and voice actor of F is for Family.

3. The Adventure Zone

The Adventure Zone, or TAZ, is podcast a family play Dungeons & Dragons and then Monster of the Week, both role-playing board games. Justin, Travis, and Clint Mcleroy play these games while the youngest brother Griffin is the Dungeon Master. Griffin's role as DM gives him the creative space to put his family into perilous yet funny scenarios. This entire family are a force to be reckoned with in the podcasting world, as they collectively are a part of at least ten different podcasts. These guys take a game that I had no knowledge of or interest in and turned me into a fan on these amazing games. Griffin's incredible storytelling and the family's incredible ability to improvise hilarious situations makes for hours of great entertainment.

4. Your Mom's House Podcast

Tom Segura and Christina P are two amazing comedians who host this incredibly funny podcast. Their comedy is amplified because they are also married with two kids, as much of their conversations on the podcast revolve around their everyday lives. Tom and Christina, lovingly referred as "the Mommies", have such a genuine connection with each other and the guests that come on the show, which seems odd considering the actual content of the show. To say that this show is crude or raunchy is an understatement. This is an adult show and they talk about things you literally can't hear about on radio or most TV. This is an "in your car" or headphones-only show, so fair warning. If that doesn't scare you, then you're in luck because they have over 480 episodes online right now.

5. Anything from NPR

If you like podcasts, there's a good chance you like National Public Radio. With shows like RadioLab, the TED Radio Hour( TED Talks broken down with interviews), and Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, these programs not only entertain but also gives the listener something to learn. During one episode of RadioLab, I was so moved by the story that I wept for almost an hour. I'll post a link for that episode below if you're feeling emotionally confident.
