I listen to podcasts every day. Here are four I've recently subscribed that I really like:
Alan Watts podcast. I enjoy the late Alan Watts' playful descriptions of eastern religions, which were utterly incomprehensible to me until I began reading his books. "Alan Watts is one of the most widely read philosophers of the 20th century. In addition to his 28 books, Alan Watts delivered hundreds of public lectures and seminars the recordings of which have been preserved in the archives of the Electronic University, a non-profit organization dedicated to higher education. For the past two years Alan's eldest son, Mark Watts has reviewed and cataloged these talks to prepare them for public broadcast."
The Casbah. "An eclectic rock & roll and rhythm radio show featuring surf-instrumentals, garage, blues and more! The show airs Saturdays 7-9pm Central Standard Time on KSYM 90.1 FM in San Antonio."
NY Times Front Page. "James Barron, a reporter at The New York Times, summarizes the top headlines every weekday morning."
New Yorker: Fiction. This is my favorite new podcast. Each month, the New Yorker's fiction editor asks an author to read one of his or her favorite stories by another author from the archives of the magazine. After the reading, the editor interviews the author. "This month, T. Coraghessan Boyle reads Tobias Wolff’s short story 'Bullet in the Brain.'"
