    Question Heard any good podcasts lately?

    If so, what was it about?

    What did you like about it?

    Where can we find it?

    Edit: Does it cost anything?

One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    Why yes, I happen to be listening to one now!

    TimesTalks: CSI - Crime Scene Investigation.
    Running time-1:08:56

    The New York Times, 12/22/06

    Linda Fairstein, Dr. Henry Lee and Anthony Zuiker discuss real life crime scene investigation. Free


    This is a really interesting and entertaining discussion talking about CSI irl vs TV, etc.

    Dr. Henry Lee is a CSI expert irl. He gets some pretty funny jabs in on TV CSI.

    It can be found on iTunes.

    iTunes added a new section: iTunes U.

    Don just told me about it referring to it as "info-porn." I know I'm drooling over the prospects. I am downloading some lectures from Seattle Pacific University about Tolkien and C.S. Lewis. I will try to remember to update this with my opinions on the lectures I listen to. For those of you who are not so audio-inclined, many come in video form.

    In the meantime, podiobooks has some okay novel selections if you enjoy audiobooks. I've recently listened to all current episodes of Prophecy of Swords. The author/reader is not top notch and neither is the story, but it is more than adequate for my purposes- a very satisfactory cleaning companion. I'm looking forward to the next episode.

    I started Noggle Stones and I may finish it, but the reader's voice sounds so much like a commercial announcer that I actually prefer the less professional reading of Prophecy of Swords. Somehow the commercial voice doesn't sit right with a fantasy story.

    Today I started listening to the first season of Black Jack Justice (also from podiobooks) it is done in the old radio show style (I love radio shows) pretty successfully. It has a 1930s/1940s mystery novel flavor and the two episodes I listened to today were pretty fun.

    Edit: unless otherwise noted, every podcast I mention here is free to download.

    I listen to SecurityMonkey and some writing 'casts from time to time.

    Just finished John Lenahan's fantasy novel Shadowmagic available through podiobooks. I downloaded it from iTunes. It was a good story and the reading of it, done by the author, was very well done. Best free novel I've ever listened to.

    Edit: I nearly forgot. There is a very nicely done reading of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes: The Speckled Band. It's done for Stanford by Marco Barricelli and can be found at iTUnes U.

    I've been listening to philosophy bites for what seems like ages now, I'm stunned that this is free, its a guy who always have a seriously expert list of questions and can guide the conversation well with all these different philosophers from around the world who he interviews about just about everything, its almost like the philosophy and spirituality sub-forum on here only its people talking on the topics!!

    I think you're a righty. So try EconTalk. You'll like that.

    Don't know if you like comedians, but here is a list of comedy podcasts I found when I was searching for the Comedy Deathray podcast. I think most are free. 10 Comedian Podcasts You Should Listen To - Comedy Podcasts - 10 Comedian Podcasts You Should Listen To
