Open Thread: What Are Your Favorite Podcasts?

A vintage phonograph.[Each week at ProfHacker, George Williams hosts an open thread discussion devoted to a particular topic, often one suggested by one of our readers. The Commenting and Community Guidelines still apply. And remember that you can always suggest topics or ask us questions via email: ProfHackerCHE@gmail.com. —Ed.]

You can listen to them in the car. You can listen while you’re at the gym. You can listen while walking the dog. In fact, you can listen to podcasts pretty much anywhere and at any time that you choose (and you don’t need to use an iPod to do so, although the “pod” prefix suffix is taken from that device). After tv shows consumed via DVR, podcasts are perhaps the most common method of time-shifting that we practice. Ethan wrote a couple of posts about creating podcasts. This week, we’d like you to share your thoughts about listening to podcasts.

Let’s hear from you in the comments!

What are your favorite podcasts? How did you find them? When (and why) do you listen to them?
