PODCASTS! Do you like 'em? Do you make 'em? Do you wish they never existed?

Which ones do you like/hate and why? What's your personal ratio of podcast to music listening ratio?

Importantly, which is your favourite RECORDING-related podcast that we should all have a listen to?

Personally, I love the things. In fact, these days, I listen to more podcasts than I do music! Some of my favourite include:

Science & Economics: Radiolab, Freakonomics, CBC's Quirks & Quarks
Language & Storytelling: A Way With Words, Third Coast Festival, Love + Radio, the Truth
Just Plain Fun: How To Do Everything, Ask Me Another
Smart Folks Saying Smart Things: TED Radio Hour, Intelligence Squared, More Or Less
Music & Recording: Tonebenders, Sound Opinions

Lots of the ones that you have mentioned I like.

I wake every morning and watch Suspicious Observer. Earth and Solar system reporting.

I look at podcasts as blogs for people too lazy to read or write, and I hate reading blogs because someone else's unsolicited opinion is usually the last thing I'd be interested in, so I won't listen to a podcast.
