I'm on a training course for the next two weeks and will be travelling for 3 hours on a daily basis to get to/from the training centre. I thought it would be nice to fill my time listening to some podcasts rather than the radio.

In the past I've listened to (and enjoyed) SModcast, Geek Out Load, Gamespot UK, Bombcast and others, but I'm always keen to try new things, so does anyone have any good suggestions?

The Richard Herring, As It Occurs To Me podcasts. I think there are about 29 of them. Just don't be drinking your coffee when they start talking about Cumpkins!

Alternatively, get a language course and fill you head with foreign goodness :) You can learn a lot in 30 hours.

Michel Thomas courses recommend, Pimsleur also good.

But if you are set on a podcast it has to be The Food Programme :)

Lots of podcasts on the twit network.
This week in Tech, this week in google recommended. If you are a Apple user the Macbreak weekly.
Would love to find an equivalent uk based collection of podcasts.

Both these podcasts from BBC Radio 4 are brilliant

BBC Radio 4 - friday night comedy podcast
BBC Radio 4 - comedy of the week

or make your own using the raspberry pi... ... sonal.html

Another couple of BBC ones I like

Infinite Monkey cage (Science and comedy)

also I'm currently working through the entire In our time archive as well, which cover such a diverse range of topics, each one is like a 40 minute lecture.
