What other podcasts...

Sorry if this has been discussed before. What are other podcasts do BOL listeners like?

I only listen to three other tech podcasts, and they are more focused on news and business/market angles of the tech world. Obviously, I'm far from being a tech geek.

1) Cnet dail tech podcast
2) Business Week "Technology and You" weekly podcast
3) "Daily Tech Brief" from the Wall Street Journal

If I could only listen to two weekly political talk shows, they'd be:

1) KCRW's "Left, Right and Center" (NPR)
2) "Observations" the podcast of the Q. and O. Online magazine (

Others I can't live without:

1) "Asia Cast" from the Sound of Hope radio network
2) "Pacific Time" from KQED (NPR)
3) "Rock Solid" by Mark Shea (catholic exchange)
4) "Catholic Exchange Today" with John Morales
5) Vatican Radio
6) C-Span: "The Communicators" "After Words" "Q and A"
7) all major network weekend panel political talk shows: Fox News Sunday; Meet the Press; ABC News This Week; CBS Face the Nation; PBS Washington Week

Others I like:

1) Slate Magazine daily podcast
2) "The Explainer" also from Slate
3) "Gallup Poll Daily Briefing"
4) "Mises Media"
5) MSNBC news headlines and market update
6) NY Times "Front Page"
7) NY Times Op-Ed piece

BOL (of course)
Buzz Report
Real Deal (Sometimes, but usually I know all about what Tom's talking about)

The Daily Giz Wiz (Goes great with BOL)
This Week in Tech
Macbreak Weekly
This Week in Media
Inside The Net (Net@Night)

Right now I am really backlogged on everything except for BOL and The Daily Giz Wiz, I am suffering from 'there are too many good podcasts out there to listen to-itis'.

Buzz Out Loud - My nightly listen to while I browse online podcast

NPR: Most E-Mailed Stories - My listen to getting dressed/driving podcast

This Week In Tech - My long run podcast (I find podcasts a lot better than music when running, you end up thinking about the topics instead of what you're doing and the time passes more quickly)

NPR: Technology
Grammar Girl's...
Grey's Anatomy Official Podcast - I am a junkie for that show. (Although this season has been quite.... meh...)

I like a variety

I like a variety of stuff, so I am thrilled that NPR's This American Life is now a free podcast, and Marketplace has started podcasting all of their shows. In addition to the CNET (Buzz, daily, Security Bytes) podcasts, I also grab some local news from WBUR (Boston).

In reply to: What other podcasts...

I spend roughly an hour and a half each day either waiting or riding the bus or walking around campus, so I?ve got plenty of time for podcasts. I would listen to music, but then I end up singing, and that?s not a good thing for anyone.

Podcasts I always listen to:
Buzz out Loud
MacBreak Weekly
MP3 Insider
The Real Deal
Wait Wait? Don?t Tell Me!

Podcasts I listen to most of the time:
Ebert & Roeper
Gilmore Girls Podcast .com
KCRW?s Left, Right & Center
NYT: David Pogue
Sunday Puzzle
Windows Weekly with Paul Thurrott

Podcasts I listen to when I ran out of the rest:
NPR: Technology
NPR: Pop Culture
NPR: Most E-Mailed Stories
NPR: Health and Science
