Since starting at Plethora, I’ve been spending more time in the car, commuting. I’ve been reclaiming this time through podcasts and I’m totally hooked on a number of them.
Review the Future: fun futurist podcast looking at the impact of technology on society in the present and future
Epicenter: awesome strategic analysis of the tech industry
Myths and Legends: entertaining retellings of classic stories with lots of good context
Writing Excuses: top authors sharing tips on their craft
99% Invisible: Great storytelling about hidden aspects of our society
Listening with Overcast
I use Overcast to listen to the podcasts. It’s a great app that gives me plenty of control over show subscriptions and downloads. It also has a great playlist capability so I can organize my shows my category. My favorite features are the speed-up effects - I listen at ~2.5x speed with the silences shortened and devour episodes in short order.
Have I missed any of your favorite shows? Let me know in the comments!
