Here's The Thing with Alec Baldwin
Black On The Air with Larry Wilmore
Marc Maron's WTF
Stay Tuned with Preet Bharara

Some fiction I've enjoyed-

^^^ Do any of those daily ones stay out of politics? It seems these days nobody can resist, and it kills it for me.

I watch Joe Rogan on YouTube at work. Some episodes are great. Others, really boring.

@robotazky
Maron is probably the least political . Depends on the guest. Kornheiser does delve into politics occasionally but it's very respectful discussion and middle of the road. I grew up outside of DC with a father in the press and a politically active mother, so you could call me a glutton for punishment

I have a pretty long commute so I'm always looking for podcasts. Some I like:
  • Dan Carlin's Hardcore History - if you're a history nerd you'll love it. Not political at all. Each episode is like 4 hours long.
  • Radiolab - 100+ episodes that teaches a theme each episode. Super interesting stories.
  • More Perfect - Radiolab's spinoff on the Supreme Court. If you're interested in the law/Supreme Court at all I highly recommend this one. It can touch on politics but only as it's relevant to the story/case. For instance the show on the 2d Amendment talks about the history of the NRA but not any commentary on present day.
  • In the Dark - only heard season 2 about a guy who's been tried for murder 6 times. Fascinating. Certainly the host believes this is an Injustice but it's not political.
  • Slow Burn - season 1 is about Nixon's impeachment and 2 is Clinton's. Obviously political but again in historical context. No doubt season 1 draws similarities to current day. Season 2 is more about how **** everyone on both sides was.
  • It Seemed Smart - this is a kind of silly one hosted by Spencer Hall of Everyday Should be Saturday. If you like college football you might know him. This pod is about crazy ways people cheat in sports. There's only about 6 episodes but it's pretty entertaining and not political at all.

I've been listening to Radiolab for years. My father did some work with Robert Krulwich on a few Nightline shows back in the 90s (Krulwich is a bit prickly and would only work with my dad lol). More Perfect is a great listen, too. Jad is a great producer

I enjoyed Alice Isn't Dead from Joseph Fink of Welcome to Night Vale (another fun podcast).

I'll just drop one recommendation in here, The Beef and Dairy Network Podcast. It's incredibly dry and absurd humor, and is a kind of parody show that never breaks character. It's by far my favorite, and not terribly well known I think.
Edit: just discovered the show has a Wikipedia pagenow. It's a better description of it than I can give. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beef_And_ ... rk_Podcast

Sounds interesting is it on iHeart or Amazon Music?

Don't know about either of those places, I just get it through the website or Pocket Casts on Android.
