Podcasts I live with

I got my iPod a couple years ago - it's the 60 Gb "classic" one (that's not it over there, just a pic from the Apple site - I don't think I'd have Nelly Furtado on it...). I've filled it up and then decided to cull some junk off my library. I'm always hovering around 59.x Gb of content on it.

I immediately got into PodCasts and have been following a few pretty religiously:
  • Diggnation
  • This Week in Tech (TWiT)
  • Project Studio Network
  • Inside Home Recording
  • NPR's Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me
  • CBC's Radio 3 Podcast
  • Tiki Bar TV
  • CBC's Quirks and Quarks
  • Cranky Geeks
and more recently:
  • The Totally Rad Show
  • CBC's Definitely Not the Opera
  • MacBreak Weekly
  • and the Skeptics' Guide to the Universe
The last one (SGU) is a great - I just finished my first episode (1/30/2008) where they chat about a bunch of things from "is raw milk good or bad for you" or "the ABC drama that connects vaccines and autism", the merits (or rather not) of "facilitated communication in the court room". All stuff that definitely makes you think.

The hosts are definitely on the evolution side of the creationism debate and come at things from a very scientific and logical point of view. Definitely looking forward to hearing more.
