I couldn't resist. I'm a huge podcast fan, so I thought I'd throw out some of my favorites. Podcasts are the reason I listen to fewer audio books than I used to. If I could invent a formula that makes minutes into pages counts, my book count for the year would fly through the roof!
This American Life -- Every week Ira Glass and team take on a theme and challenge you think of ordinary people in a new way.
Radio Lab -- Jad Abrumrad and Robert Krulwich make me love science again, just like I did as a kid. The wonder and mystery are back. Think that you can't be a Christian and a scientist? Think again. Robert is.
Escape Pod -- Sci-fi short fiction. Usually about 2o minutes long, there's always a good story in here. Some are to die for. No, really, check out Episode 242 -- The Love Quest of Smidgen the Snack Cake. You'll never look at a Hostess product the same way again. Or any other form of marketing.
Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders -- Ever wonder what the Ivy Leagues are teaching? Here's your chance to listen to the guest speakers for one of the courses at Standford.
Knowledge@Wharton -- Wharton's out there too.
I am a firm believer in growth through learning. I stumble across loads of different and interesting things this way. It can make for some great conversation or stories.
