The Best Podcasts

I've been curating a list of the best podcast episodes I've ever heard. This is it.

They're listed in the order that I encountered them (or remembered to favorite them), not in order of when they were made. 

Also, the order of the list does not mean anything like 'better ones near the top, worse ones near the bottom' — They're all here because they're all great, and your favorite might be the second-to-last one here.

The ones with an [E] means it has curse words or other explicit language. I'm pretty sure the rest should be fine to listen to with kids or in mixed company.
