Podcasting for a better life

I am so addicted to podcasts!  I have been listening to a few different ones for a while now, mostly to do with technology and photography.  I can't believe the high quality productions that are available, all for free.  I really enjoy several of the shows put out by "the president of the Internet" Leo Laporte:
  • TWiT (This Week in Technology)
  • The Daily Giz Wiz
  • TWig (This Week in Google)
Other shows I really like include:
  • TWiP (This Week in Photography)
  • The Candid Frame
  • Photofocus
  • Cranky Geeks with John C. Dvorak
All of them are available on iTunes, and they all have corresponding websites where you can get show notes and links to things they have discussed. 

Honestly, you won't even believe how many different podcasts are available on pretty much any topic you can think of.  I found one for learning to speak Spanish (SpanishPod), and even some on Project Management (PM Podcast & Controlling Chaos). 

I think the best thing about podcasting is the freedom to publish anything yourself.   All you need is a good microphone and something to talk about.  Look forward to my upcoming podcast.  I can't provide any details yet, but I hope it will be interesting and educational.

Pain in the SPAM

I am getting so sick and tired of spam... If you open spam messages to read them or worse, you actually buy stuff that is advertised is spam messages then please punch yourself right in the face for me.
