So... Now that I'm using iTunes, there's that podcast folder thingy, and I'm thinking I need some podcasts. So, what podcasts should I get?

I was talking with Steve, and he gave me several suggestions (although I closed the window accidentally, and don't have logging here at work -- I think I remember all the ones you told me, but if you could mail me the IM log, that'd be nice -- or you could post them here for the general audience, along with any other suggestions you might have). Anyway, podcasts I'm looking for...

Right. Podcasts. First off, I'm looking for Escape Pod. But I already found it, so I'm good there. Next, anything related to languages would be good, especially Japanese (or Japan in general). Other languages I probably won't listen to that much right away, but it'd be nice to collect them for later when they'd be more useful. Beyond that, anything particularly entertaining or astoundingly good or whatever. I'll probably go browsing for some on my own as well, of course. Anybody here besides Steve do the podcast thing and have any suggestions?

I figure I'll actually listen to maybe 10% of anything I subscribe to, of course, as podcasts don't exactly fit in my iLife (ahem) very well, but you know, I've got all that extra HD space to fill...
In the mood: boredbored

Sorry... nothing to reccommend. The only podcast I am subscribed to is a Catholic priest's weekly reflection. (Phat 5 at the iTunes store. Hasn't been updated much lately.)

Woot! Um, except for not being Catholic anymore. Or even particularly spiritual, much less religious.

So, yeah. Probably not.

Catholic Podcasts
Hi Laurel,

FWIW, there are other Catholic podcasts out there too. In fact, I just noticed that there's a directory of them.

The only one I'm at all familiar with is Catholic Insider. I haven't listened to it, but it's very highly rated, and Father Roderick has also done podcast series about the Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter, and Star Wars. So he's got to be cool. >8->

Re: Catholic Podcasts
Huh, cool. Thanks! :)

I am always amazed at the variety of Catholic stuff online. Right now I'm listening to a stream of Catholic music, primarily hip hop. No, really. (That's what I needed GarageBand for -- I did a little voice blurb for them.)

I'm sure this discussion is thrilling Doug to no end. :D

Re: Catholic Podcasts
Pshaw, I don't mind.

And I'm not terribly surprised at the amount of Catholic stuff out there. There might be a few more than one or two members of the Church on the planet, after all.
