Keeping up on the Internet - Part 1 (Podcast & Shows)

Some have asked me what I routinely watch/listen to so here is a list of the Podcast I keep up with. All are Free and available via iTunes or from their specific distribution site.

Independant Distribution

TikibarTV - Forbidden Cocktails in a Swank Pad
The Guild - Internet show based on a WoW Guild and its members
Legend of Neil - Neil gets sucked into the Legend of Zelda game
Ask a Ninja - Q&A with the Ninja
EpicFu - Geek Culture and discussions

TWIT Netcast Network - (Leo Laporte)

This WEEK in Tech - Discussion on recent and upcoming tech news with various guest
MacBreak Weekly - Similar to This WEEK in Tech but focusing on Mac news and rumors

There are literally hundreds and thousands of podcast and shows out there. A bunch are just crap but many stand out and become quite popular. Internet broadcasting is picking up full steam and many of the ones listed above are the full time job of the people hosting them. We have now reached the point where anyone can create content and get it out to the masses without the aid of big studios and corporations. All it takes is a cam and internet connection mixed in with a little talent or topic of interest to a fanbase. The Podcast/Shows listed above are just my routine weekly viewing. There are a few others I watch sometimes, they come and go over time or don't update sufficiently to warrant a listing here. I highly recommend all of the above Podcast/Shows to anyone wanting to keep up with current pop/tech/geek news and culture.
