I’ve become a podcast junkie in the last year. I used to be exclusively a music listener-to-er (what is that?) when I worked, but I’ve broadened my horizons. I use iTunes at work and subscribe to / listen to the following programs:
Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me (NPR): Excellent weekly current events / humor show. Smart humor.
Pardon The Interuption (PTI; ESPN): Half-hour daily sports show that’s fast, sometimes irreverent, and broad ranging.
Car Talk (NPR): I have to be in the mood for this fella because I can only take so many snorts in an hour of discussions about people’s car problems…
This American Life (NPR): Excellent program sharing stories about … Americans. It’s often fascinating. This week’s show was very good and was an hour-long discussion on the current state of the economy, what caused it, and how it affects me. A show about similar topics is NPR’s Planet Money.
Do any of you subscribe to any podcasts that you listen to frequently?
