Podcast recommendations

I love podcasts. Automatic delivery to iTunes combined with automatic syncing ensures my iPhone always has a bunch of interesting content ready to go. I probably spend a bit more than an hour a day on average listening to podcast content, not counting the music ones.

Here are some of my favorites.


  • Nature Podcast is a weekly show from Nature, featuring (mostly) the top stories from the latest issue and excellent interviews with leading researchers.
  • Science Podcast is the corresponding show from Science. Also excellent, but I prefer the British take on things most of the time :)
  • Science Weekly by Alok Jha of the Guardia is a new find for me. Guardian's science reporting is exemplary, and the podcast seems great so far.
  • The Infinite Monkey Cage from the BBC is hosted by Brian Cox and comedian Robert Ince. Very entertaining but deep at the same time.



  • The Talk Show gives the weekly Apple fix from Daring Fireball's John Gruber.
