I’m trying to talk myself into listening to podcasts while I do chores, instead of the same old audio books over and over again.

The problem I have with podcasts is partially the same problem I have with any information source that isn’t text: I want to progress through it faster than the medium allows me. Also, I don’t like missing details because, say, I had to step out of easy listening range or Robin shouted or whatever.

Also, I don’t have any particular podcasts lined up that interest me. But I like to listen to light-hearted amusing audio as I do chores! Surely there must be something out there for me.

Does anybody else have experience listening to podcasts? Any thoughts or recommendations?

I used to be at attractmode.net, but flakiness is one of my primary traits, and the domain expired. Apparently it was popular enough to be snatched up!

  1. I’ve been quite enjoying listening to the DWO Whocast, a Doctor-Who-themed podcast, as well as NPR’s podcast for Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me. It’s good stuff to listen to on the bus going to and from work.

  2. I also listen to Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me and think it is a lot of fun. I also listen to Car Talk, which is funny even if you aren’t interested in cars, and the Knit Picks podcast.
