My new thing

It dawned on me recently. I have a great smartphone. I have a long commute and have gotten pretty sick of the repetitive nature of most radio stations. What should I do, then?

The current solution I’m trying out are podcasts. For those of you who don’t know, podcasts are  RSS/RSS-like subscriptions to audio broadcasts, rather than blog/news posts. I’m still trying to figure out what to listen to, but I have found that I’m a big fan of NPR’s Radiolab. I’m also trying out PBS/Nova’s scienceNow podcast, TWiT’s Futures in Biotech, and NPR’s Marketplace.

I’ve gotten a few additional recommendations over Twitter which I will try out soon, but would love to hear any other recommendations that people might have on podcasts covering:

    • Science
    • Technology
    • Business
    • Cleantech

    Oh, I love Radiolab!
    You should try NPR’s Planet Money – economics explained by some of the people behind This American Life.
