    i don´t know how you keep yourself unbored in your head, but i like to switch between music and podcast

    hence my question since my podcast archive is running dry

    which podcasts can you recommend?

    my list so far:
    for the funz: Control Point; Kritzkast; Friendly Fire; Random Chatter
    for the brainz: Dan Carlin´s Hardcore History & Common Sense; BBC History Magazine; Great Books - A Chapter a Day (i think it´s dead)

    Used to be big into podcasts but recently I've taken to Pandora. I write down the names of any bands I like then get an album and hope for the best.

    Ah, and on a side note I'd have to thank eerieone for introducing me to Tryad with his cashworks flythrough. However I don't know where to give him the +1 thanks so I'll just thank whatever his response to this is then.

    I'll check deezer.com out. I'm starting to grow tired of my Deep Forest albums.

    Ug, that sucks. Well maybe it's a balance since BBC is blocked in the US. :/

    Hell, I live in alaska though, so we don't even get Sirrus/XM since apparently America doesn't want Canada to have it.

    I dont listen to podcasts. I listen to music on Spotify. And some times electro/house music on youtube. There are some quite nice playlists there :). But spotify is also good if you have an account :p

    Insomniac game's podcast, I used to listen to it, but I need to catch up on it. it's very entertaining, plus they normally get people in for interviews, as well as hosting competitions.

    it's also done with a bunch of people who act like children. so it's all good :p
