List your favorites here. I love listening to them as well as audio books. Great for travel or when my eyes just don't want to cooperate enough to read.

My favorite podcast at the moment is "Welcome to Nightvale". Almost impossible to describe you'd have to listen.

I enjoy NPR TED radio hour as well.
I just started listening to Serial



Some of my stuff.

I listen to Daniel Pinkwater podcast every Sunday night. He always makes me laugh out loud along with Webmaster Ed. And many others that I can't remember off the bat.

You're not the only one who listens to podcasts, and in my opinion, they are not obsolete, outdated, or to be compared with 8 track tapes.

I listen to a great many different ones, covering a wide variety of subjects.

For books, it's the Guardian's book podcast, The Next Chapter and Writers & Co, both from CBC Radio, A Tiny Sense of Accomplishment, from the Infiinte Guest Podcast network.

A Tiny Sense of Accomplishment is presented by the American writers Sherman Alexei and Jess Walters. There are about 17 episodes, but there hasn't been a new one in several months. The two writers are probably too busy in their lives to put more out right now. Give the others a listen, though. Especially for readers and writers, these episodes are a joy to listen to.

I listen to news podcasts, analysis of current events, comedy podcasts, and also podcasts relative to film photography, which is certainly interesting to me, but unlikely to be to anyone who doesn't care a bit about the subject.

Podcasts are a fabulous resource, and one of the best things to have come out of the internet.

I do on occasion, mostly to do with things that pop up relevant to my study / profession.
I would probably listen to more to more if I was more organised and less lazy with my technological 'literacy'.
I used to try and listen while I was at the gym, but got frustrated and went back to music pretty quickly haha.

I have accidentally heard a podcast or two. When I was on Youtube trying to find my favorite standup comix. Occasionally I would click on one and it would be a podcast. Can't say I really liked it because I'm so used to actually seeing a person on stage. Just listening brings back memories from long ago. When I was younger I would sometimes listen to old radio broadcasts from Burns and Allen, or Fibber McGee and Molly. That's what podcasts remind me of now. The Golden Age of Radio. Haha.

All I'm saying is you've never seen me crying and eating tacos at the same time.

Here's my latest story you might enjoy.

Here's a story Series I created that is called The Education of Mindy. This is the first story.

I listen to some occasionally.

Lore is good, if a bit creepy.

Homebrewed Christianity is one I delve into from time to time (liberal/progressive/emergent Christian theology).

I did listen to Welcome to Night Vale back when it was fairly new but stopped and not sure if I'll get caught up or not.


My latest, here for your enjoyment:

More podcasts to listen to, especially now, while being in lockdown!

Passenger List

This is an incredible podcast series, which is hopefully going to have a second season. I listened on a weekly basis when they came out but my husband binge listened to them, when season one had fnished. It's a suspense thriller, with twists and turns in every episode.

Backlisted, giving new life to old books.

Some incredible episodes from these two English fellows and their various guests, discussing books that were published previously and are worth checking into.

BBC World Service Book Club

I love this podcast. The author is interviewed by Harriet Gilbert, usually in front of a studio audience, and questions are asked by members of the audience but also from people world wide who have sent their questions in.

These are just a start...

There are so many good ones - i prefer podcasts to TV at the moment - its a luxury to make the time and space to listen with no distractions:

Myths and Legends
Tanis/ The Last Movie/ Rabbits - all by PRA
I’m very fond of anything by Wondery at the moment :)

I suppose I have listened to podcasts and didn't realize it. Like the ones on NPR. I do enjoy them when I am in the car and traveling down the road.

All I'm saying is you've never seen me crying and eating tacos at the same time.

Podcasts have helped me to keep my sanity in dark and lonely airport waiting rooms. I listen to three that have become favorites. Keep it, Armchair Expert and Decoder Ring. Mostly things that make me smile or make me think
