Podcasts Currently In My Playlist-August 2019 Edition

If you like the Falken's Maze Podcast, you may like the shows below. Let me know if you'd add any to the list. I'm always looking for new shows to listen to!

These shows are currently on my phone at the moment. They're in no particular order, but if it's on this list, it's because I've listened to enough episodes to want it a part of my daily playlist. I change out my playlist every so often, but these shows tend to stay (except for those that are meant as a defined series like The Clearing). I don't listen to each episode of every show, but the hosts are good and the topics generally interesting.

Darknet Diaries

Explore the dark side of the Internet with host Jack Rhysider as he takes you on a journey through the chilling world of privacy hacks, data breaches, and cyber crime. The masterful criminal hackers who dwell on the dark side show us just how vulnerable we all are.

The Clearing

When April Balascio was 40 years old, something she’d feared for decades was finally proven true. Her father, Edward Wayne Edwards, really was a murderer. The Clearing is about what came after April called a detective in 2009 to tell him about her suspicions — a call that led to her father’s arrest and eventual conviction on multiple murders — and tracks the emotional journey as she and host Josh Dean dig back into her childhood, unravel the truth of her father’s life, and overturn a viral online narrative that had turned Edward Wayne Edwards into a kind of serial killer caricature.

Hello From the Magic Tavern

Dan Carlin's Hardcore History

In "Hardcore History" journalist and broadcaster Dan Carlin takes his "Martian", unorthodox way of thinking and applies it to the past. Was Alexander the Great as bad a person as Adolf Hitler? What would Apaches with modern weapons be like? Will our modern civilization ever fall like civilizations from past eras? This isn't academic history (and Carlin isn't a historian) but the podcast's unique blend of high drama, masterful narration and Twilight Zone-style twists has entertained millions of listeners.
