Any Podcast listeners on here?

I have not listened to podcast's in about two years.  That was on my Zune.

 

Since I now have a smartphone, I have decided to give podcasts a try again.

 

Do you all have any good podcasts to reccomend?  My biggest turn offs to podcasts are that 1) they stop updating them or 2) they are just lame.

 

One holdout from Zune days (Od Time Rock and Roll) is still being prodouced.  I know that there are some oldies fans on UT - they have 400 Smiley Surprised shows in the books and 600,000 listeners Smiley Surprised, so they are doing something right.  However, many of the songs played and stories told aren't that good.  AND he must have some Jerry Lee Lewis fixation, as he plays at leasr one JLL song on each episode (AFAIK) even if Jerry is not tied at all to the subject.

 

Another oldies one is Donspodradio/CKW.  I can't paste the direct link.  Last show on May 26th, so I don't know how often they are updated.  Better music than Old Time RNR (above) but the announcers aren't too good.  The CKW part is neat.  He must be a fan of CKLW (800 KHz Windsor, Ontario / Detroit) as he has edited many CKLW jingles down to just CKW.

 

PS: I love radio jingles too - often they were better than the songs between them "K-L-I-F Eleven Ninety...whoopee!"

Podcasts: Howstuffworks has lots of interesting podcasts.  One group is called B sides and talks, of course about music, including how "Stagger Lee" was made famous.  They have some science ones, history ones and such.  On my Android I can't play the video ones but can do the audio ones, just fine.
