I'm behind on putting a proper blogroll on the site. One of the categories I have is for podcasts that I listen to. Someday that'll go out on the left or right margin of the blog.
I mentioned some of the podcasts that I get to Jonvon a couple days ago, and I was reminded that a good place for this kind of list was my own blog. So here it goes.
This is the newest podcast in my list. It's been up for a couple months and there are only two episodes. The most recent one is the result of a project from the IDM-Making list. IDM electronic music here.
More electronic music including ambient, IDM, electro, trance and experimental. Not as regular as it used to be, but when they come, updates are high quality.
Industrial electronic music. Spans a lot of subgenres of industrial...the mood of an episode seems to heavily depend on Jon's mood when he's putting it together. Not on a regular schedule anymore either but I really enjoy them when new episodes come out. Currently, I'm making my way through the episode archives on this one.
Mark Rushton's Ambient Downtempo Electronica Avant-Garde IDM Drifty Music Podcast
Very very ambient most of the time. Mark Rushton uses his podcast to showcase his own musc. Most of the episodes are remixes of live improv performances. I find it interesting, if not always musical.
Weekly podcast by a very talented singer songwriter. The first and maybe the second episode (the latest episode is #37) feature her music, but the rest of the episodes, she interviews and plays some music from musicians that she finds interesting. The music tends to go between acoustic singer songwriter to light punk.
Live from Rotterdam the Netherlands! Ambient sound scenes, space music, sometimes dancable electronica. Sometimes TC's own music is mixed in but usually the podcast is about other musicians and occasionally ambient soundscapes from around Rotterdam. This podcast updates every other week. I really enjoy the variation in the format of the shows with this one in addition to the great music.
(I don't have a video iPod, BTW)
Ask a Ninja
You got questions, ninja got answers. Silly but entertaining. I can't get enough of it. The most recent episode is titled, "Ninjas hate Clooney." I look forward to killing you soon.
Electronic music videos. 3-4 per episode usually. I'm enjoying it so far, but what I'd like to see is an audio-only version too.
Organization and productivity centered around the Getting Things Done framework. The blog historically has had a focus on implementing GTD on Mac's, but there are a lot of tips and info that aren't necessarily platform or software specific. The podcast isn't specific to software either. Merlin talks about more general and practical ideas for personal productivity that aren't necessarily GTD-specific, but are GTD-compatible.
Management and leadership techniques podcast. Solid, if labor-intensive, management technique for new and experienced managers. Some interviews.
It's the Lotus Notes and Domino podcast! I never thought I'd see one of these. Generally developer-oriented but it's hard to make administration and administrators interesting (disclosure: I'm an admin).
Update: I should probably point out here that some of these podcasts are not worksafe at times. Industrial Radio, SMtv and Waveform are marked "Explicit" in iTunes
