I've never heard of that one, what do they discuss?
It’s pretty much a Doctor Who fan talking to other fans/writers/artists/editors etc about their unpopular opinions about Doctor Who. Usually it goes off topic a bit from what the unpopular opinion is, but the Doctor Who chat is always interesting.
I've added some podcasts to my listening list (and removed one that I had listed in a previous post, Note to Self).
Code Switch, which is pretty interesting. From their FAQ page:
In linguistics, "code-switching" means mixing languages or patterns of speech in conversation. But as our writer Gene Demby explains: "We're looking at code-switching a little more broadly. Many of us subtly, reflexively change the way we express ourselves all the time. We're hop-scotching between different cultural and linguistic spaces and different parts of our own identities — sometimes within a single interaction.
IRL, "Because Online Life Is Real Life", from Mozilla, about life online and the future of the web. She discusses a lot of the issues we all deal with as we navigate life online.

Movie Crypt is a fave: the guys behind Wrong Turn 2 and the Hatchet movies talk with people at all levels of the US film inudstry and give you a unique, honest and sometimes touchign insight into the business. Guests have included Drew McWeeny, Joe Dante, Mick Garris and Chris Columbus.
"David Tennant Does A Podcast With..." was fun listening. He interviewed different celebrity guests. First season finished, don't know if there's a second planned, but I enjoyed it and would certainly listen to a second season.
"Diane Rehm: On My Mind" - which I found after I commented on Twitter that Diane Rehm asks good interview questions and she liked my Tweet. I used to listen to the Dian Rehm show on the US National Public Radio (NPR) network regularly till she retired from that show. She has interesting guests, talks about current topics of the day, and is a very insightful interviewer.
Errthang, which I discovered while listening to "Radiotopia Showcase", another new podcast I picked up over the past year.
I really like Al Letson on Errthang, so I subscribed to his podcast "Reveal", which is a series of investigative reporting shows on various topics. I'm going through the back catalog of those podcasts.
Sidenote Podcast. The description on the podcast page: "Mitch and Greg of AsapSCIENCE chat about controversial subjects. Then they research and splice in all the mind blowing science throughout so you are entertained while simultaneously learning." Fun to listen to.
My new listens: ArabicPod, as I started teaching myself Arabic through DuoLingo. DuoLingo is very limited though, so I am also using a couple of apps ("Write It! Arabic" and "Araby") and some of my son's old Arabic textbooks.
Life Kit: Exercise from NPR, which I discovered via a friend's newsfeed and haven't listened to yet, but it looks interesting.
I listened to the one available season of Trolled by Tracy Ann Oberman and then unsubscribed, because I decided I have too many podcasts on my phone ( ) and because I don't know if I was interested enough to listen to another season of it, if she does one.
