I listen to a mix from Twit.TV, The FUMP, Without Your Head, Week In Geek, The Unbelievers, some workamper related and finance podcasts. Being my drive is only about 20-30 minutes each way it’s filled with the podcasts played at 2x speed.
Been listening to Sherlock Holmes on Audible, narrated by Stephen Fry. Once I’m done with that I’ll have some catching up to do on Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me, and Pete Holmes’ You Made it Weird eps. I can’t stand commercials, and haven’t listened to “regular” radio for years now, so I usually just tune NPR on my short commute.
The Daily, The Argument. I was listening to Dr. Death on my subway commute back when it first came out, but it made me so squeamish, I didn’t think it was a good idea to be making those faces in public.
I’ve been listening to a lot of Harmony Nice on YouTube. She does witchy, crime, and paranormal stuff. She’s great and I watch her literally all day… Trouble is I’m finding it leaves me feeling creeped out when I have the office to myself or I’m home alone.
I listen to a lot of tech-business blathering and newsy things. That is probably a mistake…
I tend to like interviews with “intellectuals” (?), or podcasts about specialized knowledge. Economics, law, chemistry or whatever – things that provide a broader view into what constitutes the world, as described by people who are familiar with day-to-day existence in whatever corner. The more mass audience stuff is also nice from time to time.
I’d really like to listen to more music podcasts, but it’s hard to manufacture the time and quiet listening conditions.
