What I listen to – KCRW Good Food

Category: Cooking/Food,Interesting Links — Posted by Michael at 1401

You probbaly know that one of my interests is cooking (and eating for that matter). There aren’t a lot of good food podcasts out there but this one isn’t bad. KCRW is an NPR station in Santa Monica, CA. As you would expect from an NPR station, it tends to be dry at times, but that’s the beauty of a podcast. You can fast forward through those parts.

Good Food covers a wide range of topics from restaurants, to chefs, buying tips, etc.

Check out their site at http://www.kcrw.com/cgi-bin/db/kcrw.pl?show_code=gf&tmplt_type=Program
(The entire KRCW site is pretty hard to navigate and not all that user friendly. But again, there’s the beauty of podcasts… you never really have to visit the site!)

Like any radio station, they do also throw in a small amount o flocal items.

What I listen to – Z100 Phone Taps

Category: Interesting Links — Posted by Michael at 2252

On the morning show of Z100 in New York they do a bit called Phone Taps. It’s basically prank phone calls, but they get callers to participate in trying to make their friends/relatives, freak out on the phone. Trust me, it’s funnier than it sounds in this description.

What I listen to – Eric & Kathy

Category: Interesting Links — Posted by Michael at 1142

Eric & Kathy is the morning show on WTMX 101.9 The Mix in Chicago. They post a podcast of hihlights from their show each day. I think they are pretty funny. It’s mostly a call in show with some celbrity interviews mixed in. Eric’s voice and personality almost reminds me of my favorite talk show host who’s no longer on the air, Casey Bartholemew.

What I listen to – Diggnation

Category: Interesting Links — Posted by Michael at 1206

Moving on to other members of the old ZDTV/TechTV cast, here’s a podcast from Kevin Rose and Alex Albrecht. I stopped watching what was left of The Screen Savers after TechTV became G4 so I never saw Alex on the show, but he’s pretty entertaining.

The guys spend about 30 mins each week drinking beer and going over the most “dug” stories on Kevin’s site Digg.com.

So, I said the last one was the last podcast featuring Leo Laporte. Well, I just realized there was one more. It’s a brand new one and there’s only been one episode so far. We’ll see how good it is as time goes one.

This podcast is about computer security. It features Leo along with Steve Gibson from grc.com. I’ve mentioned Steve’s site in previous posts.

The second podcast that I listen to is atually the first podcast I ever downloaded. It’s the show that introduced me to podcasting.

The Tech Guy on KFI airs every Saturday and Sunday on KFI 640AM in Los Angeles. It’s hosted by Leo Laporte, who I’ve mentioned before.

It’s a long one since it’s a whole radio show, but I like to save it for when i don’t have any other podcasts to listen to.

The “What I listen to” Series

Category: Interesting Links — Posted by Michael at 1216

Since there hasn’t been much of anything of interest going on lately, I thought I’d talk about podcasting. For those of you who don’t know, podcasting is simply the delivery of audio files (or video) via an RSS feed. Basically it’s audio that’s delivered to you automatically every time the author creates a new episode.

Over the coming days (or weeks) I’ll list all of the podcasts to which I subscribe. I’ll provide their homepage, the feed URL and some comments. Hopefully you’ll find a podcast you didn’t know about.
