My Podcast Playlist

We live in the world of DVRs. We love to con­sume our shows on-demand  (and with­out com­mer­cials  of course).

The same is true with audio pro­grams. I rarely lis­ten to live radio; rather I lis­ten to pre­re­cord­ed shows that are of inter­est. And pod­casts meet that require­ment.

I lis­ten to a series of shows on top­ics that range from nation­al news, invest­ing, sports, enter­tain­ment to mar­ket­ing, social media and local news.

Here is my pod­cast playlist and some of my favorite recent pod­casts.

Note: I lis­ten to most pod­casts from the free iPhone app called Stitch­er. It makes it easy to orga­nize and stay updat­ed. Check out this arti­cle about Stitch­er in the WSJ.

  1. We sure do live in an on-demand world, that’s for sure. It’s been years since we had a news­pa­per deliv­ered, and I’ve seri­ous­ly con­sid­ered drop­ping my cable TV sub­scrip­tion com­plete­ly. I think my week­ly TV view­ing is under 10 hours at this point, and a lot of that comes all at once and on Sun­days. Like you, I’m also a big fan of pod­casts. Freako­nom­ics Radio and Mar­ket­place are also on my list. Two New York­er Mag­a­zine pod­casts, Week­ly Com­ment and Polit­i­cal Scene, as well as NPR’s It’s All Pol­i­tics and Pub­lic Radio Inter­na­tion­al’s This Amer­i­can Life rank among my oth­er favorites. And now thanks to your post, I’ve added Social Media Exam­in­er to my iTunes sub­scrip­tion.
