It has been a while since I've looked
through my iTunes Podcasts and shared what I've been listening to.
Here is the current run down:
Must Listen to Group:
- This is still my favorite and I'll end the gushing there. It is a
must listen to every week. Even when the topic is not something I'm
excited about, I learn something worthwhile and enjoy the time spent.
APM: Marketplace Takeout (NPR)
- Since I spend so little of my time listing to the radio, I miss out
on my favorite NPR program. This weekly podcast gives me a few of the
highlights from the previous week. (I've consider purchasing the full
show through Audible, but I'm not eager to pay when there is so much
good free content out there.)
NPR: Technology - Just like the program above, this podcast shares some of the highlights of the week in regards to technology stories.
- This is a daily Bible teaching program that I've come to appreciate.
I used to catch it many years ago on the radio, but it is airs in the
afternoon while I'm paid to focus on other things. Finding the podcast
has been a treat.
Productive Talk - I've listened to a few of the 43 folders episodes in
the past and they just weren't my thing (although I do enjoy the web
site.) However, over the past 2 months, there have been 8 Productive talk episodes which are talks with David Allen, author of Getting Things Done.
Really good stuff. Sadly, these programs ended with the 11/20 edition,
but Merlin mentions there are more in the works. Be sure to find these
8 episodes if you are interested in GTD. I'm gonna stay subscribed to
this podcast and give the rest of the content a try again.
.NET Rocks - Great show. I listen when the topic is of interest.
- Good sports show. I listen to it when the mood strikes. If it could
somehow be more current, I'd likely listen more often. I'm not sure
how it could work though. The games/news of Monday is discussed in the
live TV show on Tuesday afternoon, I believe. I get it loaded in my
iPod Wednesday morning, but it is discussing old sports news in my mind.
- I really enjoy Craig's show, I've recently missed a few episodes. It
has been caught in my recent listening time crunch, so this great show
appears here for now. I'm sure I'll catch up soon.
tWiT - This is a streaky one for me. I can miss it for a month and then listen to 3 episodes in a row when the mood hits.
- This a video podcast from Nation Geographic. Each week has a new
video on a different animal. I almost never watch these even through
they are interesting. My kids find it a special treat to be able to
watch one with Dad however.
