Since I now have a much longer commute to work, I needed some extra stuff to listen to on the way to and from work. I found this with some entertaining and informative podcasts. Here are some links.
I have ordered these so that the ones I like best are toward the top of each list. They are all good, though.
- The Pod Delusion - Alternately amusing and serious podcast on "interesting things", mostly of a broadly skeptical bent.
- Skeptics with a K - Talk podcast from the Merseyside Skeptics. With a K.
- Geologic Podcast with George Hrab. A varied podcast touching on music, life, skepticism, good English, and whatever happens to be on George's mind this week.
- Skeptoid - A short weekly podcast on skeptical topics by Brian Dunning.
- The Skeptic's Guide to the Universe - A first-class weekly podcast by the New England Skeptical Society.
- SGU 5x5 - A five minute bit-sized skeptical podcast, also from the New England Skeptical Society.
- QuackCast - An ascerbic and amusing podcast about so-called alternative "therapy", hosted by the soft-spoken but razor-tongued Dr. Mark Crislip.
- Logically Critical - Well presented and amusing podcast on a wide range of skeptical topics. Now, sadly, just an archive. Logically Critical Guy has stopped making them, due to other calls on his time.
