    I'm looking for some new podcasts to make the day go by at work....what do you guys listen to?

    These are the podcasts I subscribe to, but honestly only listen to a select few.

    Among my favorites:

    NPR: This I Believe
    http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=121493799
    people write essays on some subject that matters to them, wether it be gas prices or just working too much. interesting little insight into what makes people tick. it kinda gives you the :bowdown: and :hsd: feeling at the same time. Running time is usually < 10 minutes.

    NPR: Wait Wait Don't Tell Me
    http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewPodcast?id=121493804
    it's a news quiz show where people call in to a live audience, the main host adds different celebrities on the air, and the contestants "compete" for "an old guys voice on your home answering machine." it sounds lame, but is actually pretty fun to listen to sitting at work. Running time is usually < 60 minutes.

    interesting stories basically, that make you go WTF. Stories range from a man who was framed for a murder he didn't commit, and his story...to a reporter who bought a house in Baghdad, hired guards and personal taxis, and his two year story over there...Running time is generally about an hour.


    i've recently started listening to the Mike O'Meara show, and found it to be short....but pretty darn funny. :hsd: They get honerable mention.

    Diggnation, Mac Cast, GeekBrief, (pretty much all Revision3). Most are video podcasts, but Mac Cast is audio only

    Smodcast - Kevin Smith's podcast.
    Dance Department - Electronic Music show from the Netherlands.
    Resident Advisor - Another electronic music show.

    Those are the main ones. I check out others from time to time.
