PODCASTING GOOD

I’ve become an avid listener of podcasts. I think on average I spend more time listening to radio programs than music these days.  I’ll often turn one on when I do dishes or whenever I’m walking somewhere.

CBC  – check their website for much more

Search Engine – An interesting program about the impact of the internet on our lives.  I recommend checking out some of the archived programs as the show has been cut down as of late to a shorter format

Dispatches - Stories from around the world about people doing interesting things.  If your interested in sociology, anthropology or world news from a different perspective check this out.

Quirks & Quarks – A long standing tradition on CBC radio.  This science program delves into all kinds of crazy studies, new technologies and has extensive coverage of environmental issues such as global warming.

NPR

All songs considered- I just started listening to this program.  If you love music you will enjoy this podcast.  Also check out the website, there’s a lot of interesting material on their site.

CPR

This American Life – The first episode I heard on this program was about the financial crisis hitting the US and it was fascinating.  Every week the program focuses on a different theme and has a range of stories and viewpoints about that them that are usually informative and entertaining.

BBC

Documentaries - Really good coverage of a wide range of topics including the American election, drug wars in Mexico, is al-Qaeda winning.  Good stuff.

History Magazine – I’ve only heard a couple of these but so far they’ve been interesting if you’re into history. I learned about pompei, medieval urban culture and lots more.
