What do you listen to and why?
/me pulls up iTunes.
Cranky Geeks — Because Dvorak is funny
Diggnation — Because Alex Albrecht reminds me of a friend of mine, and he’s funny
Internet Storm Center Podcast — Because I’m on it, and it’s awesome.
LugRadio — Because it’s funny as hell, with good information about Linux

Network Security Podcast — Because it’s a great podcast about Network Security.
PaulDotCom — Because Paul and Larry are good friends of mine, and it’s about Security
SC Magazine Podcast — It’s interesting to hear different people that I know on podcasts.
Scam School — Also funny
SecuraBit — Network Security, and it’s funny
The Week in Tech — because it’s TWiT. And Dvorak is on it, and he’s funny
Totally Rad Show — Because Alex albrecht is on it, and he’s funny, but i am losing interest in this show because Alex carries it. On his back. Like a donkey.
You Look Nice Today — because it’s funny as all get out. Funniest podcast on the internet.
I’ve personally never been able to get into the whole Podcast movement. Part of it is that I’ve grown up listening to NPR and AM radio. Now, I don’t think Podcasts are particularly bad or amateurish (although some most certainly are), they just do not have the “spit and polish” (professionalism?) of broadcast radio. I’ve also found that many tech. podcasts discuss news that I have already caught in my usual readings of The Reg, The Inq, Slashdot, this blog, etc.
I have recently listened to the Network Security podcast (mainly because it was linked from this blog), and it wasn’t too bad. I also tend to say tuned to NPR’s Music RSS feed (specifically the All Songs Considered podcast).
/me also pulls up iTunes, but notices a lot of podcasts haven’t been listened to in a long time.
Ask A Ninja – Does Video count, especially if it’s funny?
Career Opportunities – Cause I can always use help in my career
Decoder Ring Theater – Cause I love radio noir theater, even if is from a bunch of Canadians
Cyberspeak’s podcast – Brent and Ovie don’t take themselves too seriously
PauldotCom – Larry and Paul are friends and started podcasting at almost exactly the same time I did
Podcasting for Dummies – Again with the self-improvement
Security Catalyst – Michael’s smart. And a friend
Security Now! – Steve’s funny, especially when he doesn’t mean to be. And Leo’s a nice guy
And just because I’m in them, Network Security Podcast and the Security Roundtable. Which reminds me, I need to get back to editing next months SRT podcast.
Thanks for listening, Nathaniel!
Not a one, my man. Who has time for the spoken word?
Though I do watch Jake and Amir.
The primary one for me is “Wait Wait, Don’t Tell Me”, since I often miss it at noon here.
NPR’s “All Songs Considered” also comes up once in a while.
I used to listen to the Slate “Explainer” podcasts on the bus, but I don’t commute anymore.
“Open Source Sex” only posts infrequently, but is entertaining.
I used to watch “Ask a Ninja”, but fell off the wagon.
I don’t. Most of my web surfing is at work. I have very limited radio time.
Wait Wait, Don’t Tell Me, if I don’t catch the show.
Excellent French Pod Class which I am way behind on, because I would like to improve my rusty French.
Irish and Celtic Music Podcast and Celtic Myth Podshow because I love all things Celtic.
I tried listening to tech podcasts but found it very hard both because of the technical quality of the shows and the fact that I can’t listen to voice and get information out of it unless I am doing absolutely nothing else and those times are not often enough. I can’t have it on as background. I’m bad with audio books that way too.
In our Time from BBC 4 – very little intellectual audio programming these days, IOT at least tries.
I used to listen to MJR’s podcasts when he did them. He’s smart.
I just listened to Adam on the Network Security Podcast today, actually.
Outside of that – does timeshifting/downloading KCRW count as a podcast?
Network Security Podcast
This Week in Law
Net at Night
Knowledge at Wharton
Center for Counterintelligence
pauldotcom.com is very funny and often inspirating,
Network Security podcast – I think they often know what they’re talking about
One Man And His Mic – best demoscene podcast ever 🙂
Hacker Public Radio – sometimes they should have better audio quality!!
Chaosradio (Express) – CCC podcasts, the international one is in english. Express features technical topics like PyPy or so.
Off The Hook – yes, the radio show gets podcasted, too
OnMicrosoft/Software – sometimes interesting
Security Now – too much ads, even in the rss feed, but it’s still in the list.
webcast.berkeley – they’ve sometimes very interesting readings they podcast, even about computer science and information security
I added some new podcasts, thx 🙂
I only listen to a few, Stackoverflow and Security now(Nice thing about podcasts…you can skip the ads). I listen because although I read a lot of the same information online sometimes it’s nice to be hear a discussion instead of always reading, reading, reading. I also have to get some work done too so I listen to them at work. I can’t spend all day surfing. It
black hat briefings,
hack a day
hacker in the house
mad decent worldwide radio
the silver bullet security
sun deveoper network sdn
I have free time. and that’s my only excuse.
@Tamzen – I have a similar issue with digesting information in an auditory form unless I’m specifically focusing on whatever is being said. I tend to just put things on in the background and tune in once and a while. It’s the same way with the radio while I’m driving.
@Martin – No problem. It was a good show, and I will probably listen to it again.
I listen to the BBC news in Spanish, and to Dr Elmer Huerta’s little five-minute medical note thingies. I really only listen to podcasts while working out at the gym or cooking dinner–otherwise, like Tamzen, the verbal part of my brain is busy and I can’t concentrate. I like the aspect of working on three useful things (getting the news, practicing Spanish, and working out) at once….
