What's on your iPod?

kindofstrange asked for suggestions of things to listen to on her way to work. Mine are below. What's on your iPod? I'd be especially interested in podcasts that showcase music released under a CC license.


Anything by NPR is probably worth listening to, though my favorite is This American Life:

If you like the show, you'll probably also like the audiobooks of David Sedaris (Me Talk Pretty One Day, Dress Your Family in Courdoroy) and Sarah Vowell (Partly Cloudy Patriot) who are regulars on the show.

A couple more good NPR programs:

The Story with Dick Gordon (news analysis, special interest)

Science Friday with Ira Flatow

Non-NPR programs:

IT conversations (interviews and speeches from tech leaders)

The Show with Ze Frank (vidcast, humor, news commentary)

Free Talk Live (libertarian politics call-in show)

If you're interested in history, politics, and economics from an Austrian perspective, check out the Mises institute podcasts:

See also EconTalk, for recent interviews with free market economists and luminaries (such as Milton Friedman).
