A re-newed appreciation for podcasts

Podcast

For the last two weeks I have re-started listening to podcasts.  Early on I listened to several and either the podcasters quit or they did not have a consistent enough voice to deliver their message.  I also noticed that in the past I used to listen to these podcasts in a dedicated fashion - meaning I was listening to them while commuting or just sitting and and not doing anything else.  My commute got much shorter so I never really got the benefit of listening to longer podcasts.

A couple of weeks ago I launched a podcast while I was surfing the web, researching digital collection software (Yojimbo and Evernote) and let it play in the background. All of a sudden I was reminded of how enjoyable they were.  Now part of my new routine is to listen in the evenings when I am working or responding to email.

Lately my favorites are the following:

The B&B Podcast with Ben Brooks and Shawn Blanc *

Minimal Mac: Enough with Patrick Rhone and Myke Hurley

These guys put out really quality conversation worthy of listening to and I recommend them.

*If you become a member at Shawn's site you also get access to a short daily podast called Shawn Today as well which is also quite good.
