Podcast Rotation

I just wanted to capture the current set of podcasts I listen to. I commute two hours a day, and this set keeps me lightly stocked — Sometimes I run out for a day or two, and I rarely fall behind.

This is my current gold-standard set of podcasts:

Podcast / RSS LinkCategoryAverage LengthDescription
Major Nelson RadioGaming1:15 - 2:00Gaming podcast, focussed almost exclusively on the Xbox 360. Interviews and news.
IGN Games PodcastsGaming0:40 - 1:15I listen to the following podcasts from this RSS:
Game Scoop (all around gaming news)
Three Red Lights (ostensibly 360, often silly)
Nintendo Voice Chat (Wii / DS)
Command Prompt (PC Gaming)
IGN Entertainment PodcastsTelevision / Movies / Technology0:40 - 1:00I only currently listen to Channel Surfing, but occasionally there are other interesting podcasts
Bungie Podcast
Gaming1:30 - 2:00Bungie studios talking mostly about Halo. Note: Not bleeped, not filtered.
Anger, Sadness, Envy
Gaming1:15 - 1:45Rampancy.net's podcast discussing all things halo. Fun deep dives into story and gameplay.
The Dealnews PodcastTechnology, Consumer News0:40 - 1:00A medium-length, somewhat lighthearted take on tech news and product deals.
The Java PosseProgramming1:00 - 1:30Java and JVM news and sessions

Here are some podcasts I’ve just started listening to and am still evaluating:

    Gripe: I can’t believe I had to register to post a damn comment!

    I’ve always been fascinated by how the non-tech public at large (aka the washed masses) learn about and digest technology news. To that end I am drawn to “mainstream” tech podcasts such as the “NPR: Technology Podcast” and “NYT Tech Talk”

    And for something completely different, try “The Ethicist” http://www.nytimes.com/services/xml/rss/nyt/podcasts/cohen.xml

    I did that so you could have your precious jprossjr. Now you are forever immortalized.

    Thanks for the reminder about public radio shows, I forgot to add those before.
