I love podcasts. Here's some — roughly half of what I'm subscribed to — that I'd love to recommend.

  • Answer Me This!
    The host of The Allusionist is joined by two friends who answer all sorts of questions from around the world.

    The best podcast in the universe. Twice a week, Adam Curry and John C. Dvorak deconstruct recent news, media, and memes in a free-flowing conversation. Episode 200.7 is a great starting point and introduction for new listeners. You should listen.
