Podcasts

I have a 40+ minute one-way commute and I pass the time by learning (and being entertained) via podcast.  Here are several of the podcasts that I listen to on a regular basis.  Some of these are not going to be to your taste (standard YMMV disclaimer!)

Quotes are how the podcasts describe themselves.  I will be slowly adding in my own take over time.
