About a year ago I discovered the delights of listening to podcasts, and I have done so practically daily during my commute. Unfortunately, the screen on my phone recently went black and for a while I thought my feeds were lost. I did eventually managed to extract them, so now I’m making a public backup, in the form of podcast recommendations:
60-Second Space (RSS) is one of several bite-sized podcasts from Scientific American. Since it’s so short I seldom remember anything, but when queued up it can serve as an overview of recent space news.
Discovery (RSS) is a science podcast from the BBC.
Freethought Radio (RSS) is a podcast with news, music and interviews from the Freedom from Religion Foundation. The news is rather US-specific, so I just pick the episodes with interesting interviews.
Humanistpodden (RSS) is the official podcast of Humanisterna, a Swedish secular humanist organization. Some episodes are in English, e.g. the excellent interviews with Ophelia Benson and Peter Singer.
Little Atoms (RSS) is a “talk show about ideas and culture.” The host sounds like a really nice guy, maybe it’s the British accent?
Planetary Radio (RSS) is the Planetary Society’s show with news and interviews. It sounds very scripted and a bit dry, but the actual content is interesting.
Red Planet Radio (RSS) is a newly launched podcast from the Mars Society.
Science Talk (RSS) is a science podcast from Scientific American.
Science Weekly (RSS) is a science podcast from The Guardian.
Skeptoid (RSS) is my probably my favorite podcast, see my previous post for episode recommendations.
Språket (RSS) is a Swedish radio show about the Swedish language, and is what got me started listening to podcasts.
StarStuff (RSS) is by far the best space podcast that I have found. The host, Stuart Gary, has a nice Australian accent and appears to be incredibly knowledgeable when interviewing the authors of recent papers, etc.
The Atheist Experience (RSS) is actually a call-in TV show from Austin, Texas, but I listen to it as a podcast. I recommended episode #795 on Twitter, with my favorite hosts Tracie Harris and Matt Dillahunty.
I’ve prepared an OPML file with all 13 feeds for importing. I can recommend DoggCatcher for Android if you don’t already have a podcast player.
The “Stuff you should know” is pretty good too. I listen to it whenever I have a long drive.
Thanks, I’ll give it a try!
I second that. I also like Wil Wheaton’s (very infrequently updated) Radio Free Burrito.
Visste inte att du lyssnade på Atheist Experience. Vi har visst samma favorit hosts också...
Där ser man, det visste jag inte om dig heller! Har du några fler podcasts som jag borde lyssna på?
Det är ju faktiskt det enda podcastiga jag lyssnat på. Fast jag tittar mest på videorna...
