I set out to make the most mundane, dreary podcast possible... but then Stuff Happened that made it topical and perhaps slightly poignant. Each episode features the audio of a different person's journey to work, sometimes with just the background noises, sometimes with commentary. [more inside]

My friend and I have started a podcast about policies (public, private, or otherwise) with interesting consequences. Each episode we look back at a past policy and and then rampantly speculate about a current policy change. He is hilarious, I occasionally say something mildly amusing, and in general we have loads of nerdy fun. iTunes. RSS. Episodes: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 [more inside]

WTF is a popular podcast hosted by comedian Marc Maron. He interviews comics (and once in a while non-comics) about their lives and how their minds work, and generates really amazing insights. Since I'm a public radio producer, I talked Marc into making a limited-run public radio series out of some of the best episodes of the show. My colleague Nick White helped. You can listen to (and review) the episodes at PRX.org.
The "New Books Network" is a consortium of 70 podcast channels. Each channel is devoted to a particular field (history, biology, literature, law, etc.), hosted by an expert in that field, and features hour-long interviews with the authors of new books in that field. The podcasts are free and available on the "New Books" channels, by RSS, and on iTunes. We are seeking people who would like to participate in the project, both as hosts and editors. Those interested should contact Marshall Poe at firstname.lastname@example.org. For those who have written or would like to recommend a book to be featured on a "New Books" channel, we also welcome pitches.

A public radio program and podcast dedicated to in-depth conversation with thinkers and creators. It emphasizes equally the ideas and the people behind them, and those people have included 43Folders founder Merlin Mann, "mumblecore" director Andrew Bujalski, New Yorker fiction critic James Wood, Bookworm host Michael Silverblatt, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak. I've aired over 100 interviews so far, most about an hour long, and I show no signs of stopping.
