4. The Bill Simmons Podcast
Sometimes we need a break from reality, and if you’re a fan of the NBA and fantasy football, you’ll probably dig this podcast as it provides you with all of the analysis on the NBA playoffs, trade rumors for the draft, and the hot picks for the upcoming season.
You can also find interviews with celebrities and several topics that have nothing to do with Sports. However, for the fantasy draft junkie who wants to feel like they are managing their team, this podcast has some of the best insights out there.
5. Freakonomics Radio
If you’ve never read Freakonomics, you’re missing out on a wonderfully interesting book on economics that is explored unusually. This podcast is for the guy that wants to learn about economics and money but in an almost irreverent way.
