Looking for some good podcasts? Here are my picks! I try and listen or watch about an hour of science programming a day, it’s usually on a treadmill or pedaling a bike or if I am in a “hostage situation” like traveling. It’s a way to pass the time while keeping active or while just waiting in line for something.
A few posts ago I mentioned I listened to a lot of sci/tech, etc and some commenters were interested in my playlist. So…. This is the list for the week, I try new ones out all the time, add them, remove them – if you have suggestions post them up in the comments! I’m always interested in discovering new ones. On a related note, during the holidays I spent about 14 hours a day shipping open source hardware, for those long runs of time I listened to audio books – that’s not the list I’m posting here, but perhaps I will later if there’s interest in that list too.
Each item after the jump has a show URL, RSS (XML) feed and an iTunes URL, with the second URL you can drag it directly in to iTunes or use the 3rd link, the iTunes link. Read on for the full list!
