Podcasts – a great way to absorb extra info
Podcasts are audio recordings usually in mp3 format that often specialise in a particular niche. If you commute, work out to music, or are at a loose end during a long build you might consider listening to one of these shows.
I subscribe to quite a few podcasts via google reader (my rss client of choice) – though the term podcast itself has iPod heritage so iTunes is also often used as a delivery mechanism.
I have listed a few of my favourite podcasts below. Please comment and recommend any podcasts you listen too that I might be missing out on.
