My favorite podcasts and videocasts

These are the podcasts of my life. I listen to them while I'm at work, while I'm walking, on the bus, in the grocery store, and sometimes just lying on the couch with my boyfriend. They are not mere time-fillers, though. They mean a lot more to me than that. They introduce me to new music, give me insight into issues that directly affect me, like how to podcast a novel, what Kaito Nakamura's power really was, whether Claire and Adam Monroe are really related, who is the best candidate for President. All very important subjects to me. I look forward to these podcasts; I know the upload schedule for most of them. Thursday? Another DL.TV. Wednesday? Cranky Geeks. Sunday or Monday? 9th Wonders Podcast (BTW, I've had letters of mine read on 9th Wonders, DL.TV--actually they played a video question of mine-- and East Meets West. Yes, I am that special.)

Sadly, the people I work with still don't know what a podcast is. Eh, but the only TV they watch is Grey's Anatomy and Desperate Housewives, and I doubt they're losing sleep over who to vote for. So, I'm not too chagrined that they don't know about this aspect of my life.

For each podcast, I listed the generic RSS feed (though in some cases it made more sense to link to the website itself). Please note, though, that in some cases other subscription feeds are available on each podcast's website, such as iTunes or other specific podcatchers. An RSS feed is a catch-all, though, and will work in any feed catcher. If you have any questions about how to subscribe to podcasts, please e-mail me and I'd be happy to help. Here's a pretty good video tutorial..
