Pod me

Okay, I have a confession to make - It is a dirty little secret and it’s a bit embarrassing. It is not something that is really a very productive use of my time and it is a bit voyeuristic in nature - but I can't seem to stop myself. Once I start I want to do it more and more, I just can help it - and it involves the internet.

It podcasts. I can stop myself. My ipod has become a constant companion and every trip (be it bus, train or plane) involves headphones. There are podcasts on every imaginable subject, some entertaining, some are educational and some just down right freakish. After years of refusing to read the papers or watch TV news (because both are nothing more than either senseless drivel or moronic fear mongering), I have now found an interesting source for some legitimate news and political discussion. And I am realizing - it'sa kinda scary world out there, but fascinating.

Here are a few of my favorites

In a world of corporate controlled media hear another side of the story. A Great range of topics and far more interesting than your local “news” paper. WARNING: Some episodes may cause outrage at the current administration and then cause you to get involved and write your legislators or join left wing pinko organizatations.

Helps restores my faith in human beings (especially after a political episode from Truthdig.com)

The Ministry of Truth – More left wing Commie news podcasts about what’s going on.

The BBC has some good ones. I'm fond of From Our Own Correspondent. Old school journalism at its best.

Leonard Lopate's show from NYC is good too.
