I love podcasts. Ok, there are probably completely useless, unlistenable podcasts, but I don’t bother with them. Not only are they more convenient sometimes than waiting for a particular radio broadcast, you can tell iTunes to download them for you automatically, and they are – mostly? – free. I like that bit too.
In fact I like them so much, that I am running out of time to listen to them all.
My favourites would be: Kermode and Mayo’s film reviews, Word Magazine, A History Of The World In 100 Objects, NPR: Live Concerts
The first two are basically people arguing in an amazing manner – about Movies and Music respectively – the 3rd is a long-running and fairly informative Radio4 series, and the 4th is, amazingly, a load of complete concerts by (mostly) US indie and folk artists. And Tom Waits.
Did I mention that they are all free?
(And no, that’s not me in the photo. And i don’t listen on headphones all that much.)
