This is only my English ones. I follow quite a lot of Swedish podcasts as well but I guess they all sound akin to the chef on the Muppet Show for you guys. If someone knows the language I can post them as well. I usually always listen to podcasts or audiobooks when I work out, commute or wash the dished , but I can´t really keep up with them all. Especially now since I found a new bunch in the previous posts.

I listen in two ways. One is burned to MP3 CD's for the commute. The other is on my smart phone using BeyondPod while puttering around the house or yard. I found that I like talky ones like yours better for the puttering and stories for the commute. The talky ones work fine on the commute, too, but podcasts like yours are more forgiving of external distractions while working around the house.

I have several tiers of podcasts.

The first tier is ones that I have consumed everything and eagerly await the next episode:
HPLLP
PseudoPod
Toasted Cake

The second tier is ones that I am actively working to consume the back catalog:
PodCastle
The Tolkien Professor (kinda surprised this hasn't been mentioned yet, as it's solid analysis of classic fantasy literature by an English professor - start with the Hobbit lecture series)

Third tier is podcasts that I am actively dabbling in, but haven't quite yet committed to moving up a tier:
Cast of Wonders
The Double Shadow (I like you so far as I've gotten, but I'm not gonna blow smoke up your nethers yet)
The Drabblecast
Dunesteef
EscapePod
A Podcast to the Curious

I will re-listen to select episodes. Stories that I love will get saved and re-listened after a year or so, or if I want the wife to hear them on a road trip. When I find audio productions of HPL stories, I'll burn that to an MP3 CD and follow it with the HPLLP episode immediately following. I find that I like antiquarian readings far more than I like antiquarian writings, so this has been a great mechanism for deepening my appreciation.

How do you listen? What apps do you use? Where do you usually listen?

I usually just download the mp3 and listen to it at work (I can work with it running through headphones).
Quote:
More specifically, when we release a new episode, do you listen to it right then, or do you download it and wait for later?

I listen right away. I download it to have a copy to go back to.
Quote:
Do you ever re-listen to a podcast?

Yes. I seem to be listening to them two or three times, and I'm sure I'll return to them later.
Quote:

Just checked out the Lovecraftian Obsession podcast... what an excellent concept! For those who don't know, it featured interviews with leading modern Mythos writers and scholars, including S.T. Joshi, W.H. Pugmire, Fifer and Lackey, Laird Barron, and others. Unfortunately, it seems to have ended at Episode 7 in October 2010. The interviews are still there for anyone who wants to check them out.

So I've recently gotten hooked on Welcome To Night Vale. It's a podcast done in the style of the local radio / community announcements of Night Vale, a small town in the middle of the desert where weird stuff goes on.

I guess you'd call it comedy, primarily, although it's mostly just... odd. There are a few missteps here and there where the crazy happenings are a little too crazy, a little too on-the-nose, but these are minor blemishes on what is otherwise a big delicious plate of SubGenius-esque weirdness.

I recommend starting with the pilot because there's just no way to describe what this show is. You just kinda have to hear it.

Quote:
The City Council announces the opening of a new dog park at the corner of Earl and Sommerset, near the Ralph's. They would like to remind everyone that dogs are not allowed in the dog park. People are not allowed in the dog park. It is possible you will see hooded figures in the dog park. Do not approach them. Do not approach the dog park. The fence is electrified and highly dangerous. Try not to look at the dog park, and especially do not look for any period of time at the hooded figures. The dog park will not harm you.

I'm intrigued! And need something to listen to between TDS ep's. :!:

“NPR from the Twilight Zone” or "Where David Lynch meets The Twilight Zone"

A small desert town.
Town Motto:

"We have nothing to fear except ourselves. We are unholy, awful people. Fear ourselves with silence. Look down, Night Vale. Look down and forget what you've done."

History:

Founded by peace-loving imperialist conquerors.

It's been a while since anyone's posted in this threat, but I really enjoy podcast too. I use them to engage my mind when my body is obliged to be in a set space for a given duration, like inside a car, on a treadmill, or when showering. I use Downcast on an iPhone as my delivery method. BoneyWashington, are you still enjoying NightVale? That's the podcast to which my mate and I fall asleep. Cecil's voice is so soothing.

Anyway, here's my podcast rundown:

Alabama Ghostbusters (local dorks, doing good)
Alan Watts Podcast (the widsom of a groovy 60's guru)
Changesurfer Radio (transhumanist philosophy)
Circulating Ideas (Library talk)
The Double Shadow
The H.P. Lovecraft Literary Podcast
In Our Time with Melvyn Bragg
It's a Thing (Trendspotting from two tech reporters)
New Books in Philosophy
NPR:TED Radio Hour
Philosophy Bites (Concise and rigorous discussion on randon philosphical topics)
Quantum Conversations (brief notes on quantum theory)
Rationally Speaking
Security Now (computer security and cryptography theory)
Singularity 1 on 1 (singularitarian chat)
Welcome to Night Vale

If y'all didn't know, Robert M. Price has a new podcast called The Lovecraft Geek, in which he answers listener questions. It's Robert M. Price talking about Lovecraft for an hour, why are you not listening right now?

Being weird in Alabama brings so many challenges. My wife and I are librarians, from northern and central Alabama respectively, and our bookish ways are due in large part to finding better community among the long dead and never born than among our neighbors. Being an outsider has its advantages.

Price is a hoot. I would enjoy listening to him speculate on the comparative merits of fibrous breakfast cereals.
