podcast me, baby!

So, I've realized I spend more of my time these days listening to podcasts than watching TV. For me, that's actually pretty huge.

Mostly it's because I can listen to podcasts most of the time during the work day.

Anyway. Here are some podcasts I like. I'm curious who has fave podcasts not on this list, and even more, who has recommendations based on the podcasts I like. I've only linked some of them I thought might be harder to Google.

No Air America suggestions, please. I miss Morning Sedition, though.

Rough categorizations here:

  • News/documentary:
    • techie/science:
      • American Public Radio - Future Tense

      • Documentary Archive

      • File on 4
