Podcast Recommendations | April 9, 2006
I’ve been listening to more podcasts of late, mostly while traveling or at the gym. The two podcasts I listen to the most are Diggnation and Mark Kermode’s Film Reviews. I really like hearing Marks thoughts about the latest movies while Diggnation is very funny in a geek Animal House kind of way. I listened to the Ricky Gervais podcast a few times, but couldn’t quite manage to get into it. It was funny, but after a while it started to get a little repetitive. I occasionally listen to the Web 2.0 Show, although the quality of the audio bugs me, and This Week in Tech is worth dipping into every now and then. Apart from that, I mostly listed to event podcasts such as those from SXSW. There are bunch of other podcasts I’ve tried, but none have kept my attention for long.
I started using Odeo as a way of discovering new podcasts – mostly by seeing what my friends were listening to. However I didn’t like the fact that you’d end up with one giant feed, so switched back to using the iTunes music store. I have to admit that I’m not a huge fan of the iTunes music store, as it doesn’t support my preferred browsing behavior, but it will have to do until I find something better.
In the meantime, I’d be interested in getting your recommendations and finding out what podcasts your listening to at the moment and why.
