I’m a podcast addict.
I listen to them every morning when I wake up and every night before I go to bed. You might too if your only television channels were 24-hour news. Yes I like the news too, but sometimes I’d rather watch an episode of Rocketboom, or hear about why it is so hard to say “toy boat” three times fast from “Stuff You Should Know.” I mention both of those podcasts because along with the “Best of Today” they’re my favourite programmes and I am always anxiously awaiting the next ten minutes of Internet I’ll get so that I can download new episodes.
So here’s what I’m listening to/watching, in case you ever wonder where I get all these random conversation topics:
ABC World News
Best of Today (The BBC Radio Today Show)
Best of YouTube
Cook’s Illustrated Video Podcast
The Feed Video Podcast
Friday Night Comedy from BBC Radio 4
