I love listening to podcasts! Just like documentary TV, they’re a great source of information on a range of subjects.  Of course, podcasts are more popular in certain areas than others.  I didn’t have any other ideas thought it would be interesting to make a boring list talk about what podcasts I listen to.  There are also a few YouTube channels thrown in for good measure.

I’d love to find more (well produced) podcasts related to history, archeaology, photography, physics and sciences, the arts… more away from the tech side.  If you know of any, please let me know! I love learning new things!  I’ve tried others in the past, but sometimes they just don’t make the cut.
