Wow, looking at that list all at once I'm glad it doesn't all download at the same time!

Linux Link Tech Show has to be the worst, most boring podcast ever. I've heard 30 second segments where all I heard was people clearing their throats, coughing, moving stuff around. And the way they talk is like someone in a morgue reading the coroners report. No thanks.

Hak5 and some other stuff over at Revision3. Works for me. ;)

Nah, got a mac already? :)

I don't listen per se to podcasts really.
But i do, if i do, listen to npr podcasts. Especially the ones i miss and have a topic i am interested in.

But to be honest, i am not even sure who can listen to all that and a regular basis.
I used to have a lot of rss feeds too, but i reduced to a lot. There is just simply to much information which i can not even compute.
The same is with podcasts. I don't download them anymore since the age very quickly.
Technical ones i never listen to.

I listen to the TuxRadar and F1 Rejects podcasts but that's about it.

No. :/ I want a job first. I'll save up money and get it for designing and animating my cartoons.
