If you want daily news updates Dvorak's tech5 will do it great. But it's short and has no conversation. I'd probably settle with tech5 and twit. Dunno of another daily news show in BOL's league.
Rumor has it that BOL might take a vacation in the upcoming month or so. What should BOL fans do to get their fix of topical tech talk told with a tangy twist? Aside from reviewing the archives (e.g., BOL 1000 and even BOL 500 still holds up), there is an alternative--across the Pond:
CNET ("Cnet"? "cnet"? "Cnet."?) Podcast UK.
It's like Buzz Out Loud but with cool British accents (instead of funny of the occasionally hilarious nerdy or valley accents Molly riffs on).
