PodCasts-anyone download and listen

I was wondering if any of you MP3 users out there download and listen to PodCasts. I am looking for some interesting ones myself. The only one that currently have downloaded is from the Ray Lucia show.

Any other reccommendations or other shows.

Re: PodCasts-anyone download and listen

I don't do podcasts (yet), but my husband likes "On the Media" (PRI--Public Radio Interntional discusses things like how stories are covered in different media), "Open Source" (Christopher Lydon interviews), "Science Friday" (NPR), "Skepticality" (interviews with skeptics/debunkers), "Occam's Razor" (Australian guy covers science from a quirky perspective), "Film Spotting" (movie reviews), "On Words" (old John Ciardi wordsmith show from NPR in the 80s). He gets all these and more for free at iTunes.

EDIT 1 We're listening right now to the Filmspotting review of "A Scanner Darkly"!
EDIT 2 I like this show! It basically made me more interested in seeing the movie even though the Filmspotting guys disagree about how interesting the characters are and whether Keanu Reeves did a good job. A very different kind of movie review show than, say, Ebert & Roeper--they're talking more about the meaning of the movie than how it's made. As for Scanner Darkly--I decided not to go--kind of a headache today so I just had some tea & ibuprofen. Plus I think it's good for the hubster to go out with the guys sometimes.

I should get an ipod.

Also available for free through iTunes is the radio program, A Way with Words. If you like language, even casually, this is a great show.

Science Friday -- NPR program hosted by Ira Flatow.
Security Now -- Technology guru Steve Gibson.
NY Timed Op-Ed -- you can listen for free but have to pay to read these online
Radio Pacifica -- left wing news
French Maid TV -- good instructional videos


You don't need an iPod to listen to podcasts, any cheap MP3 player will do. You can even download and listen on your PC or Mac.

Re: PodCasts-anyone download and listen

CFB posted this guy's blog a few months ago and I just recently found his podcasts. His entries are pretty interesting but I haven't got around to listening to the podcasts as I'm still reading the other hundreds of written articles.

Not bad, but he seems very heavily influenced by Tony Robbins and other self-help gurus. Lots of inspirational thinking, but very little practical application advice. Mind you, I'm not looking for step-by-step instructions, but a bit more anecdotal or statistical evidence would be helpful to support his often feel good platitudes.
