Podcasts I Listen To


Lately, instead of syncing my iPod with the typical playlist of old favourites, I've been loading her up with podcasts.  Here are a few of my favourites.

  • CBC Radio Podcasts - There is so much great content here, I had to lead with it.  You can download MP3s of "DNTO", "Sounds Like Canada", "Vinyl Cafe Stories", "Quirks and Quarks" and more.  It's one of my favourite pages on the web.
  • This American Life - Here's the trick with This American Life.  The podcasts aren't free, but the most recent one is... so every week I shoot over and download the freebie.  It's fantastic.
  • Anti-Hit List - I first discovered John Sakamoto's "Anti-Hit List" in Eye Weekly, but followed it over to the Toronto Star.  Although he only plays songs by the indie artists in his weekly chart, for licensing reasons, it's always a treat.  Maybe it's because he only plays indie artists that I like the AHL so much.
  • ESPN Radio Podcasts - "The Best of Mike and Mike", "Pardon the Interruption", "Baseball Today"... it's all here.
  • AlternaGeek - This one is for the geeks, but I like it anyway.  AlternaGeek podcasts cover topics including Linux, Mac, Windows, internet tech, blogging, web2.0, gadgets, software, tech news, howtos, and reviews.

Let me know about all the great podcasts I missed in the comments and I'll check them out.
