I listen to a lot of podcasts and I'm wondering what I'm missing out there that's worth downloading. I'll start off by going through the ones that I listen to.

GRM: Excellent, of course. Usually makes me want to go spend money. Very infrequent new podcasts.

The Smoking Tire: not one to listen to with kids in the car, but Matt Farah and Zach Klapman are consistently funny and entertaining. Often wanders far from the topic of cars, but somehow I don't mind. They have lots of other auto journos in and it's interesting to hear them talk like people and not like television presenters.

Everyday Driver: Todd is a fellow FR-S owner, and apart from complaints relating to his height, I really trust his opinion. I like that he and Paul feel free to disagree. Paul is wrong about factual information on a semi-regular basis, but not enough to seriously make me question listening to the show. I do think their recommendations to listeners are preeeeeeetty repetitive, but then so are my recommendations to family/friends.

Hooniverse: Jeff Glucker is good, but this podcast really shines when Zach Klapman and Chris Hayes, both from Smoking Tire, are on. I usually skip the ones Glucker does solo. Maybe second only to the Smoking Tire for pure entertainment value.

Consumer Reports: Talking Cars: Like the magazine, an excellent source of factual information with few biases, if any, but not incredibly entertaining. I do have a special place in my heart for the show because they talk reliability and safety, which most enthusiasts are far too cool to consider. Probably the best place to learn about the real pros and cons of the Toyota Highlander or Chevy Malibu on this list.

10 Tenths: A lot like listening to guys I know. Into an eclectic set of cars. One of the few podcasts where the guys actually talk about autocross. Pretty entertaining.

Slip Angle: Very focused on Grid Life, club racing, time attack, and track days. Not always entertaining, but sometimes some great racer stories. The worst place to go to hear about the new Chevy Malibu.

Driving While Awesome: Sometimes funny, but they seemingly know nothing about cars that aren't from VW, Porsche, or BMW. I'm not sure if they are the most likely to be factually incorrect on the list, but they're certainly the podcast with the most errors that I notice. Great discussion when they keep to the narrow group of makes they're familiar with. More of a cars and coffee group of guys than a bunch of autocrossers or club racers.

If your into motorcycles I like The False Nuetral. Sometimes a little dry and I mostly disagree with many of their opinions but I still enjoy it. It's usually pretty short time wise.

I don't know what's involved but I use an Android app called Castbox for all my podcasts. It's convenient and allows me to keep everything organized and easy to download episodes at home so I'm not burning through data at work while listening.

What would it take to get the GRM podcast on there?

I'm still looking for a good one. Thanks for the ideas. I know Horsepower For An Hour sucks, as does Car Stuff Audio. The topics may be decent, but the podcasters are boring and dull. NPR is much more exciting. Seriously.

Cammed and Tubbed may be worth a listen. I've heard Cameron, where the cam came from in the title, on the false Nuetral podcast and he seems pretty entertaining.
