Planted in Miami. Let’s be honest: Some of the time, when people start in on conversations about mindfulness and conscious living, they can come off a little smug. OK, make that a lot of the time. But that doesn’t mean topics such as healthy diets and environmentally friendly shopping habits aren't worth discussing. Fortunately, cohosts Jeanette and Alexander Ruiz, along with their dog Abby, talk about these topics in ways that will not only hold your interest but also might even make you try to affect some positive changes in your life.

Ballscast. Brought to you by New Times contributor Chris Joseph and Slim, this show is equal parts sports and comedy. The first episode of their current run, for instance, began with a minute-and-a-half-long song crapping on the Marlins and then, after an introduction, proceeded with their spending about 30 seconds screaming and cursing at each other. They clearly have a lot of fun. Visit ballscast.podbean.com.

Sh*t Miami Girls Say: El Podcast. Pero, like, it doesn’t really get much more Miami than these tipas. Aimee Carrero, Michelle Sicars, and Giancarlo Sabogal — who were behind the now-classic viral video that satirized the majestic dialect of the Miamian — have gotten into the podcast game. And even though se fueran pa’l carajo and moved to Los Angeles, the three are still parodying the Miami landscape via characters such as Dolce Cubana (a fictional dancer at Doral’s Booby Trap) and riffing on national and local headlines, as well as imparting what they know life to be like in Mee-ami.

Florida Action Cast. This is the podcast for politically inclined, progressive-minded Miamians, whether you’re an activist, a wannabe policy wonk, or just a news junkie looking to hear what liberal leaders in Florida have to say. The show not only interviews local politicians, offering listeners a chance to get to know them in a series called Drinks With Politicians (which also has its own podcast by the same name), but also invites guests to discuss subjects that concern everyone who cares about the greater good, from immigration to the working poor to net neutrality.

The Dan Le Batard Show With Stugotz. Maybe this one doesn't qualify as a podcast in the classic sense of the word, but ESPN repackages the Dan Le Batard Show, recorded at the Clevelander on South Beach, as a podcast and distributes it online and through iTunes. If you’ve ever listened to the show on the radio, you know Le Batard and Stugotz's dysfunctional relationship and high-energy sense of humor are matched by their understanding of sports and the sometimes shockingly intelligent analyses they provide. So screw the podcast purists. It’s Dan Le Batard and Stugotz. These guys are Miami sports royalty, and they get to be included on whatever Top 10 list for which they even halfway qualify.
