over on winky's blog i just posted a comment that lists my favorite podcasts, and then i figured i wanted to spread my love of podcasts here.
i listen to so many podcasts. i've been doing this for almost a year now. here are the ones i like:
democracy now: great daily independent reporting show that really sticks it to US media and does a fantastic job covering the latest stories.
bbc's documentary archive: radio documentaries from the bbc. some are amazing.
bbc's in our time: it's always a discussion about some historical person or phenom. always fascinating, very scholarly, if you're into that. a recent show on john stuart mill was just great. i learned that his father essentially treated him as an educational experiment, and in fact jeremy bentham was his godfather.
kqed forum: discussion of topics of interest in america and abroad. a panel discusses a topic, and the last half of the show there are callers. quite good, though the host has a way of talking too loudly and hurting my ears at times.
cbc's quirks and quarks: bob mcdonald is amazing. he makes science so much fun. the recent segment on happiness was fantastic. "if you're looking for happiness, skip bulgaria.'
in addition, i listen to the new york times podcasts of their opinion columns. finally, a good search engine for podcasts is podzinger.
