Matt's Favorite Podcasts (in order of most anticipated and listened to):*
They Might Be Giants Podcast
Everyone's favorite Nerd Rock band discovers the ideal venue for their blend of creative sounds and paranoia. Don't miss an episode!
30 minute mix of new, interesting, ambient to trance music, great for studying, writing or chilling, and the host is a robot!
Religion and Ethics Newsweekly
Audio of the weekly PBS program reporting on religious and ethical issues in the world. A little dry and a little detached but nobody else is really doing this kind of journalism well.
BBC World Service radio programme on technology stories from around the world. Tech isn't just for the rich anymore. Interesting stories you won't hear on CNet or ZDTV.
Various NPR Podcasts :
NPR: All Songs Considered
All Thing's Considered's Director, Bob Boilen, sifts through the thousands and thousands of CD's folks send him to use as between story music "buttons." An abbreviated version of one of the web's best source of "new" music from a myriad of genre's.
NPR: Music - Stories about music.
NPR: Religion - Stories about religion.
The White House Presidential Podcast
When he speaks, they podcast it. Great if you need audio samples of religious rhetoric invoked to support political and military action.
