I bounced off them all. I occasionally listen to MBMBAM now, but I can't deal with TAZ (to be fair I stopped after Balance), and I lost interest in Still Buffering. I keep Sawbones on my feed just in case there's something I can use at school.

i fell off TAZ about 3 episodes into this season bc travis grates on me

MBMBAM is still great. ive never been big into Still Buffering -- or really, anything Travis-centric
but Sawbones is fantastic

meta is trash

Little ego here because I probably need to trade some out of my current rotation and could use some replacements.
Ski mask? Check! Sawed off? Check! Guilty conscience, fear of death? Check! Check! Check!

Get to know me. Or don't. I won't tell you what to do. I'm not God. Or your father. Or your boss.

https://www.microbe.tv/twiv/ - This Week in Virology - virologists get together and chat about the latest virology news. mostly covid lately of course but sometimes other viruses too

https://www.flashforwardpod.com/ - take a trip into a possible or not so possible future and then listen to experts and people who might be disproportionately affected by that future discuss it!

https://www.alieward.com/ologies-by-topic - ologies! each episode is a fascinating deep dive into a topic you never knew was interesting

http://wp.lancs.ac.uk/enclair/ - en clair. forensic linguistics! Listened to the Enigma episode recentlyish and I thought I knew the Enigma story but most people start the Enigma story with Turing and there's actually a lot of back story. Like the Poles, who cracked several earlier versions of the Enigma machine.
The failure mode of clever is asshole.
