I’m such a huge fan of podcasts that it’s insane. See I have this eye problem that prevents me from reading too much. My day job is in technology and my hobby is writing so I have no ‘good eyes’ left for everything else.
That’s where podcasts come in. I can listen to them while walking, cleaning, and building (my three other hobbies). It’s such a perfect blend that I want to share with you my favorites:
- This Week in Tech
- Slate Political Gabfest
- Bloomberg Presents Lewis Lapham
- History of Rome
- Melvyn Bragg – In Our Time
- The Economist (all of the shows)
- APM: Marketplace Morning Report
The interesting thing about these shows are that none of them are from traditional TV/Radio. Half of them are writers of print media talking about their work. An interesting trend I expect to scare the beejeesus out of Hollywood.
Here are my second tier shows that I still listen to vehemently:
- Slate Cultural Gabfest
- Slate Hang Up And Listen
- Dan Carlin’s Hardcore History
- Tech News Today
- Buzz Out Loud
- TED Talks
- NBC Meet The Press
- APM: Marketplace
- APM: The Splendid Table
Sorry for the lack of links but you can Google (or iTunes search) these titles and I guarantee you will find them.
Do you listen to any of these?
