What I’m consuming…

Podcast-wise, mostly.  Thought I would share. 🙂


Creativity’s top 5 podcast – Fantastic, short, succinct weekly digest of cool ad and media campaigns from around the world.  Great inspiring stuff, consistently.
Buzz Out Loud – been listening to for years and recently TRIED to stop.  But I felt guilty for some reason and caught back up.  Seriously, they are on episode 1021 and I think I tuned in around 250.  Yikes.
MMO Report – I lurv this podcast.  Casey Schneider is hilarious and adorkable.  Plus you learn MMO industry news and funny gamer insults.  And where else would I learn about an in-game WOW tweet app.
Sesame Street Podcast – Whatever.  I work in kids media.  It’s a short bit of one of my childhood babysitters.  I don’t watch all the time, but I do watch. 😉
X-Play’s Daily Video Podcast – Honestly I don’t watch all thetime, but I do tune in from time to time.


CH Orginals – Not sure why I subscribed to this, but the consistently amusing short comedy clips have stayed on my queue for the past month.
NPR: Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me – I love this Chicago public radio news quiz show.  Saw them live twice this year.  Yeah, I am that girl.
Slate’s Political Gabfest – another that I have been listening to for about 3 years now.  Always smart, funny and cool tidbits to keep me feeling on the smarter end of the citizen spectrum.
This American Life – Sometimes heartbreaking, sometimes funny, almost always great.  This is the stuff roadtrips are made of for me.
The Moth Podcast – found this via This American Life, as they get a bunch of their stories form them.  A NYC/LA and traveling spoken word outfit.
You Look Nice Today – Merlin Mann, Scott Simpson and Adam Lisagor have a demi-deity status with me.  Their brand of humor is my fav.  They are not the most freuent podcasters, but I love them.
Web Soup – Talk Soup format + MMO Report staff = awesome
VHI Best Week Ever – They are on hiatus until next year or something, but I still love this video podcast.

I have half become one of those “Oh, I don’t have a tv” people.  But, to my credit, it was because I thought I was leaving. Not because I think TV is bad.  I love TV.  It had a huge hand in my upbringing. 😀
