helpfulsnowman from Colorado is reading But What If We're Wrong? by Chuck Klosterman September 25, 2017 - 5:31pm

I'm doing a lot of running over the next couple weeks, and I need some seriously riveting audiobooks to keep me company and keep me occupied. Anyone got any recommendations? I don't care if it's fiction, non-fiction, whatever. But I DO want stuff that you've enjoyed in audio format specifically.

Also, podcasts recommendations are welcome!

I'm loving the audiobook for Norm MacDonald's Based on a True Story. I also just downloaded the audiobook for The Disaster Artist after heavy recommendation.

I listen to a lot of podcasts. I don't know if any are good for running since I don't do that kinda thing. But here are some good podcasts anyway:

We Hate Movies: comedy show about 3-4 guys making fun of bad movies.

Thinking Sideways: every episode talks about a strange unsolved mystery

True Crime Garage: true crime

Criminal: varies between true crimes and different aspects of the justice system

Hello from the Magic Tavern: comedy improv about a guy trapped in a magical land called Foon

I'm sure you've already heard of it, but I am rarely not interested when I start listening to a Joe Rogan podcast. Most especially when he has some highly intelligent, or highly accomplished, or just plain unusual, people on. From Neal DeGrasse Tyson to Jordan Peterson to Dan Blizerian to... 

So there's like, over a thousand, have at it.

Max: I just got the Norm book too! That dude is criminally underrated. I especially like when he's talking about wearing his Dirty Work hat around. I must've watched that movie a hundred times. Thanks for the podcast recs. While we're on the topic, which of your shows do you like best? I'd like to get into it. 

Thuggish: I like Joe Rogan a lot, like you, when the guest is interesting or funny. I haven't listened for awhile, but I should. It's longer, so it'd make good fodder for those long runs. 

Thanks!
