I love podcasts.Â Â They have taken overÂ the radio in my car on my daily commute to and from work.Â Â I find myself listening to terrestrial radio less and less every week.Â Â I also find a person’s podcast playlist is a great way to get to know that person.Â Â As I get ready to launch my own podcast in September, I thought I would share a listing of my favorites.Â Â
Extra Life Radio: I listen to Scott, Brian and O every week.Â Â The show focuses on Comic Books, Movies, Video Games… (much of what my show will be about).Â The guys always make me laugh and have pretty good insight on what a large percentage of the geek community is thinking about.Â Â Even with their “Poo” stories, I think the show is great.Â Â
This Week In Tech:Â I was one of the 7 people who watched Tech TV.Â Leo Laporte the former host of Screen Savers and Call For Help created a high quality network of “net casts”.Â This Week in Tech has become the show on his network that I listen to most.Â Â Â He always has a very interesting and entertaining panel of guests and regulars.Â They drive the show’s weekly tech discussions.Â Â If you are even remotely interested in technology these guys have the inside track.
Tekzilla: Another Tech TV alum, Patrick Norton along with Veronica Belmont host this tech show on the Revision3 network.Â Â If you were a fan of the Screen Savers, you will love this show.Â Â They keep their discussions tech related.Â The tips this show offers are PRICELESS!Â
Buzz Out Loud:Â Yet another tech podcast.Â Â This is CNET’s “podcast of indeterminate length”.Â Tom Merrirt, Molly Wood and Jason Howell are a great team and are very entertaining to listen to.Â Â They provide a daily update on what’s going on in the tech world.Â On Fridays they produce a video version of the show.Â Â Â Â
Xbox Live’s Major Nelson Radio: Being a fan of Xbox 360, Major Nelson (Xbox lives director of programing) has the inside track on what’s happening on the Xbox 360.Â Â His show features interviews of game developers and gamers.Â Â
I do find myself listening to more and more podcasts every day.Â Â If you have a favorite I should check out, send it my way- Canman
