The last couple of weeks I have really been getting into podcasts. Wednesdays are my long days where I teach 5 classes at two different universities that are quite far from each other and my home, so at the end of the day when I am exhausted and embarking on my hour plus journey home, I usually feel too tired to read so listneing to podacasts from Slate has been an entertaining diversion. Here's an article that discusses some podcasts and introduces one by Ricky Gervais of The Office fame. I recently down loaded his first podcast, and the first 15 minutes or so were funny, but after that a littlle tedious--the Slate pieces usually never run more than 15 minutes. The pieces they pick are usualy ones that I didn't read on the website, so I'm exposed to some topics I wouldn't have necessarily sought out on my own and have found them intersting. Anyone else getting into podcasts, if so any recommendations? I'm guessing that NPR probalby has some good ones.
