It's been a while since my last Tech Tuesday post, and today's is a bit different (sorry, Scrivener fans). I want to tell you about my favorite new podcast. It's from the people over at Howstuffworks.com, and it's called Stuff You Should Know. It's part of a collection of podcasts under the How Stuff Works umbrella (part of Discovery), and it's a blast.
The hosts Chuck and Josh are half of the reason I listen. Their easy, humor-filled banter makes for a fun listen, regardless of the subject. Show topics run the gamut from How a Narco State Works to How Organic Farming Works. It's been a great resource for my writing, and is just plain entertaining.
I've learned about mercenaries, high fructose corn syrup, quicksand, food cravings, and pirates. Even the topics that don't sound particularly interesting almost always surprise me. I now try to catch them all.
The best part about a podcast is that I can listen while I'm doing something else. Cleaning house, working out, driving, you name it. Each show is about 20-35 minutes long, and they're released every few days. You can subscribe through iTunes or RSS feed, and if you just can't get enough of Chuck and Josh, you can catch their blog every few days as well.
Give it a try and let me know what you think.
What about you? Do you have any must-listen podcasts?
