I've always loved listening to the radio, and podcasts are like that – informative programs going in-depth about things I'm very interested in, in the people-talking-to-you format. When its well-done, it becomes like people you like chatting and you get to listen in.
There are a handful of podcasts that I listen to regularly, and they're dreadfully well-done (these are all available in the iTunes Store and can be searched for there by title):
- The Adobe Creative Suite Podcast
- DAS Film Fest
- InDesign Secrets
- Logo Design
- Onion News Network
- Porland Mercury Pod 'n' Vod, especially Pure Pod for Now People, which is fun enough that I wish that Magsy and Matt would do them twice a week.
- The Skeptics Guide to the Universe
- This American Life (yes, iPod ownership has made me one of those insufferable Ira Glass fans)
- TriMetTV (naturlich)
Of course, some of them are vodcasts, which means if you have one of the older non-video iPods you can't take them to-go, but if you have iTunes, you can watch them on your 'puter all the same.
Question to my handful of readers: do you have favorite podcasts? What's on your iPod (or iTunes, or iRiver, or whatever)?
