Podcasts


I'm listening to several podcasts when commuting, chilling, cleaning my apartment and what have you got. Below is a list of my favourite shows.

The shows I follow.



This Week In Google (link)
This is the podcast I've listened to for the longest and most frequently. I started listening sometimes during summer of 2010. I do remember the episode "#46: Driving Mr. Jarvis" but I might have started with "#45: We're All In Our Jammies" as that title sounds familiar. The host is Leo Laporte, and the show is co-hosted by Jeff Jarvis and Gina Trapani. The show is about Google and "the cloud". What I do find slightly annoying is Jeff Jarvis being such a Google fan boy that he always supports whatever they're doing, no matter what. To me it almost sound like him being paid by Google, and that might be the case as well.




Triangulation (link)
Another Laporte show, which I started listening to as soon as it aired. Hence episode 1 in January 2011 was my first meeting with Triangulation. The concept of this podcast is interviewing some of the greatest minds alive today. Some guests are very interesting, some not so. Overall a great show though. The host being Leo Laporte. The first shows were done with Tom Merrit as well, but he seems to be out now. Something that was the better for the show.




Security Now (link)
Started listening to this show earlier this year. My first podcast might have been #341: The Anonymous Threat from February. It took a couple of shows before I got into it. However this being a very useful and interesting show, where technical security questions are discussed. I would say this is one of my favourite shows. With Leo Laporte and Steve Gibson.




This Week In Tech (link)
Leo Laporte's shows heavily dominates my podcast app, and this is another show from the twit.tv network. I started following this August 2012, with episode "Episode 366: Are You Running Butterplus?" being my first. It's a show where Laporte with friends discuss the last week's tech news.




The Skeptics' Guide To The Universe (link)
I started following this show with the episode "The Skeptics' Guide to the Universe Podcast #369" from August 2012. SGU is dedicated to promoting critical thinking, reason, and the public understanding of science through online and other media.




Gillmore Gang (link)
Tried out this podcast for the first time in August 2012, starting with episode "Gillmor Gang 10.08.10". Another great tech show, with Steve Gilmore and friends like Robert Scoble. A fun show, specially when Scoble gets pissed off like what you can see here.




The Moth (link)
Another popular podcast that I tried out for the first time in August 2012, starting with "kambri-crews-a-blind-ear". The Moth is an acclaimed not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling.




TED talks (link)
Listened to several TED talks throughout the years, but starting with this show in August 2012 TED talks has been added to my podcast subscriptions list. There are several very interesting, motivating and inspiring TED talks.




SciFri (link)
Started listening to this show in September 2012 (my first show). A great show on science.




Hypothetical Help (link)
My only comedy show on the list. As I subscribed after Scott Johnson and Turpster had finished season five I only went back to June and listened to the final two episodes (my first show).
