On podcasts 18 Jul, 2006
Now that I have a proper iPod, I have suddenly found myself really getting into this podcast thing. It started off small, with them thar Taking Notes episodes (which just get better and better: if you’re not listening, get a grip and sort yourself out with some mp3 goodness), but I’m starting to spiral out of control now. Being a proponent of Andy Hertzfeld’s super-duper folklore site, full of splendid Apple geek history, it didn’t take me long to find Derek Warren’s Macintosh Folklore podcasts—all the stories from the website for your listening pleasure. Recommended.
OK, so we’re on a roll now. I’ve saved the most hilarious ’til last. My British reader may be familiar with an old(ish) late night amusement called The Adam & Joe Show. Well, the fellows behind that now do a radio show and podcast for XFM. I subscribed a few days ago, and listened to episode one on the way back from the Chili Peppers gig Saturday night. Ab. So. Lute. Ly brilliant. So funny. I’ve listened to a couple more episodes since, and people seeing me walk down the street must think I’m mad(der). But hey ho, it’s a scream and well worth listening to (if only for their trenchant analysis of R. Kelly’s latest opus).
(The above links take you directly to the podcasts in question at the iTunes music store, assuming you have iTunes installed).
So how about you? Got any shows you can’t be doing without?
