What podcasts do you listen too

Sat 29 Nov, 2008 07:49 am
so 1 more

I've been listening to Radio Nederland since I was a kid. I learned Dutch by listening to RN by shortwave radio 35 - 40 years ago. I find RN kinda funny sometimes, in a good way.


Bridges with Africa is currently one of my favourite RN programmes.


This is always mmmm entertaining

Part of what is so great about podcasts is that you can learn so much about anything in little pockets of time. Doesn't matter what interests you - it's that you have interests.

You can be interested in European pop music or Harry Potter or science or economics - it's about being curious.


I loved listening to shortwave radio when I was a teenager - news and music from around the world - if the weather was right and you were awake at the right time and you could get the dial tuned precisely right. Then came live streaming radio over the internet. Better. And now podcasting - even better!

Have you ever listened to the PC Gamer podcast? Its pretty informative in their respective arena. I stopped listening because I felt guilty about listening to their free podcast while I let my magazine subscription go unrenewed due to lack of funding. Shocked

Plus I get my weekly dose of Science Friday when its delivered on the same podcast as Talk of the Nation. Fun and enlightening!

What kind of podcasts do the NSA publish? Mathematics? Code breaking techniques? Anything top secret leaked out? Wink

You are talking about the National Security Agency? Right?

You are talking about the National Security Agency? Right?
Hell no!!!!!!!!<GRIN>

Typo NASA............

However it would be interesting podcasts indeed.......

Second note ran across a interesting story as how the FBI used a network of old game machines to do brute force attacks on passwords.

My wife had been known to complain about the length of my passphrases but at least that way those games machines would still be working when the last sun in the universe burn out.

Third note the Niel Rogers show after 33 years on the local radio had ended in July of this year however as he was doing 20 hours a week so I got way behind on my listening to him.

Still have a few months of podcasts to go before running out of them and then it withdraw time.
