So I got a new job doing data entry, and while it's very very easy, it's also very very boring. Fortunately my boss said I can bring my iPod to listen to at work so I've been looking for some good podcasts to listen to and I thought it'd be a good topic here.
My favorite one so far is probably Ebert and Roeper's podcast. Even though I rarely agree with them I'm a huge movie fan so I enjoy listening to movie reviews. Some others that I like are the Geek Pastor, which features a Pastor who talks about "geek" topics like video games, comic books etc. And Tv Guide Talk which has a few people who work for tv guide getting together and discussing current tv shows and movies, although I must warn you spoilers do pop up sometimes.
I like the Observer one, Meltzer and Alvarez. Whoever cuts it together for podcasts form could be doing a better job, but he always brings the guests and that kind of good stuff. I think I like Konnan as a guest even more than I find I can't watch him as a worker.
Insomnia Radio is pretty great. Lots of unsigned (yet awesome) bands and stuff about the west coast scene.
"How could we possibly appreciate the Mona Lisa if Leonardo had written at the bottom of the canvas: 'The lady is smiling because she is hiding a secret from her lover.' This would shackle the viewer to reality, and I don't want this to happen to 2001." - Stanley Kubrick
You wanted the best, you got... Out of Context Quote of the Week.
"I know, I know you are saying "sure there was some bad calls, but Jake Gyllenhaal obviously dropped too many easy catches and Ang Lee had some horrible clock management at the end of each half!"" (krakken2000)
Mostly shows from KCRW... Morning Becomes Eclectic, Music Exchange (segment with Steve Lamacq), and Good Food. But don't forget PTI, Michael Feldman's Whad'Ya Know?, and The Poker Edge (which would be greeeeeat if I could subscribe to it on iTunes, but for some reason, it doesn't show up in the iTMS). Perfect for driving to the most far-off games you can schedule.
In unrelated news, anyone know of any other good soccer or poker podcasts? I was hoping Nick Geber and Steven Cohen (hosts of Fox Football Friday and a show on Sirius) would have one, but something about various top-flight leagues, the numerous cups, etc.
Through the leading MST3K website, I found a podcast called Subject: Cinema. The second issue of the podcast was devoted entirely to a discussion about MST, and it was pretty decent. Being a fan of movies, I'm going to keep listening.
Other than that, Ebert and Roeper is the only other one I listen to on any kind of regular basis.
I was working in the SF area and was a last minute substitute for a workers compensation claims class back in NJ because the woman who was supposed to go got sick. (Thank you Linda Hess) I was one of 2 guys in a class with 17 women.
