top six podcasts that make me say :D

March 4, 2010
Podcasts. Radio on the internet whenever you want it and there to listen to again and again. What isn’t great about the podcast?
Last week I had the honor of writing a blog post for The Vegan Police.
What The Vegan Police do best  is the podcast and they have one of the best podcasts around! Blogging for them got me thinking about the podcasts in my life,  so I am making this week’s top 6 the top 6 podcasts in my life.

Democracy Now

Best. News Program. Ever.  Awesome interviews, great topics, and no selling-out. Thank you, Amy Goodman, for keeping it real!

Go Vegan Radio

Who wouldn’t love a podcast that begins like this:

“Peace. Now. Go vegan. Peace.  How? Go vegan.  From the left coast to the genetically mutated McNugget pharmacutakill vivisection prison killatary industrial court port nation in the cheese-covered, post-constitutional, bankrupt, bribeacratic, mockracy, corruptacracy, criminocracy of the United Stakes of Lustaria, this is Go Vegan with Bob Linden…”

Morning Becomes Eclectic

When I am in need of new music I stream an episode of this show. Jason Bently definitely keeps it eclectic and a new artist/group (with interviews!) is featured on every show.

The Moth Podcast

This gist: all presenters are recorded live, onstage, in front of an audience.  The rules: no notes allowed, true stories only. This is very hit or miss. It may be great, or it may suck, but they are usually only 10-15 minutes long so you’re never at a loss and you may be wonderfully pleased.

This American Life

Every week brings a new topic and a few stories about that topic. Ira Glass hosts. You’ll either love his voice or hate it. I love it (grrrowll…).  This is one of my all time favorite listening experiences ever. Whenever I need to find comfort and calm inside my head, I listen  to this podcast and bake. This ritual centers me every time.  But for those of you with more normal centering techniques, it is also great to listen to on road trips or before bed in lieu of a book.

The Vegan Police

Currently with 38 episodes available for streaming, Christa, Dylan and Ryan have a tight site and sweet podcasts. (I think I already made that clear!) They find all the cool vegans and all the cool topics.

What’s your favorite podcast?

    Oh you are to kind Carol!

    I second Democracy Now!

    Shout outs must also go to Animal Voices – http://www.animalvoices.ca/

    It is one hundred times better than we will ever be, but we play more music.
