List of Podcasts I Listen To

I try to listen to all episodes available to the public.


Frustrating: inconsistent (or missing) numbering of podcast episodes (Zero Squared, starting off as a separate podcast called "Diet Soap", being an especially egregious example of this: early episodes missing from the feed (?), switching numbering schemes multiple times, unnumbered special (and mundane) episodes, splitting into (and merging back) multiple podcasts such as "Pop the Left" or "Symptomatic Redness" or "Alternatives Podcast" or "Inside Zero Books" or "The History of the American Left", all on the same feed (arrghhh!), changing the Patreon subscribers model multiple times (e.g. releasing only previews of every second episode for a while, then creating a special podcast for patreons only), releasing "Zero Books Special" episodes, calling itself at times "Zero Books Podcast" or "Zero Squared" or "Zero Podcast" (okay, fine, $0^2=0$, but still…), and finally renaming itself back to "Diet Soap" after over 10 years!).

I have listened to all publically available episodes of Zero Squared, although that is a very qualified statement (if someone has episodes 1–3, 5, 7–8, 10–11, 13–24, 26, 32–33, 36–40, 42–43, 51–53, 183, 185, 187, 189–190, 192, 194, 196, 198, 200, 203, 205, 208, 210, 212, 215, 223, 228–229, 258, I'd be happy to pay half a dollar per episode, just to silence my inner completionist).
