    just curious of what podcast ppl listen to the most:

    1. advice (general) [EX: clark howard, car talk, 10 minute lessons, mary ellen]
    2. education / science [EX: learn languages, vocabulary, National Geographic, nova, science Friday, nasa casts, astronomy]
    3. entertainment [EX: strong bad, comedy central, cartoons, dennis miller]
    4. financial [EX: msnbc, business week, money girl, stocks & investment shows]
    5. gaming [EX: xbox, warcraft, gamer news]
    6. government [EX: pres weekly radio address, presidential candidates]
    7. health (physical) [EX: work outs, yoga, meditation]
    8. kids [EX: radio disney, parents mag podcast, manic mommies, mommycast]
    9. music [EX: wilco podcast, talking metal, michaels trance mixes, jazz, garagepunk]
    10. news [EX: npr, broadcast news, usa today, nightly news, anderson cooper 360]
    11. self-help including relationships [EX: organization station, mr manners, laws of attraction, hip tranquil chick, addiction, cosmos ask him anything, taste of sex, sex love and satisfaction, on the minds of men, relationship savvy]
    12. software tutorials [EX: creative cow, izzy video, lynda.com video training, photoshop for video, dreamweaver]
    13. religion / spirituality [EX: joel osteen, church type]
    14. parodies / ‘fake’ news [unger report, onion news, goodnight Burbank]
    15. sports [EX: espn, fantasy football, wrestling, martial arts]
    16. tech news [EX: twit, security now, c|net queue, mac break]

    tried to narrow down the list. i combined self-help with relationships [bcos i felt the list was getting too long and since i have issue with each! but then i exceeded the type allowance! *grimmace* so, anyway...
    and i realize entertainment and parodies could be grouped together but i love a good parody. yes i do.
    so, in what order do they rank for you?
    and are there any other good ones you recommend
    [NOTE: this list is by no means reflects my tastes (well, okay, some do) but prime example: being as i do not have kids i had to randomly choose the mommy casts.] :D

    i dont really explore the world of podcasts, tho i do listen every week (almost) to the barack obama podcast. i suppose if i checked for a ron paul padcast, i'd listen to that, too.

    Podcasts of radio shows are normally what i listen to most.
    My favourites are anything by Ricky Gervais or Russell Brand for comedy, and for tech news and reviews, Stuff.tv is my favourite.

    Podcasts are one of my favorite sources of content. I listen to all sorts of stuff on the TWIT network, especially Security Now. I also like Harvard Business School, Real Estate, Podcasts covering writing like Barnes & Noble Meet the Writers and various NPR podcasts like Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me. And when LOST is on, the Official Lost Podcast is essential. :D

    Kudos to Apple for bringing Podcasts to the forefront on iTunes (even though I am shocked how many iPod users still don't know what they are!) and Apple TV which is a GREAT concept. Having user-created content piped into your entertainment center is the wave of the future.

    Usually NPR & TWiT, but I've recently unsubscribed from both. I'll listen occasionally if I'm really bored.

    The only two podcasts I have ever listened to with any consistency are a History of Psychology one (excellent) and PodRunner, which is a music podcast designed for using while running. The latter more than the former, which led me to pick music. :)

    Used to listen religiously to "The Now Show" podcast but sadly the BBC, in their wisdom, dropped it. Now I don't listen to any podcasts.

    I listen to smodcast every week (Kevin Smith's podcast) and Dan Carlin's history podcast, especially since there's only one of those every 5 weeks or so.
