5 Podcasts Worth Listening To

December 15th, 2009 at 9:34 pm

Podcasts!I wrote up this list for a friend yesterday and I figured maybe it was worth sharing with the world at large. While a number of these are video podcasts, I usually listen to these while riding a crowded bus into and home from work each day, so even the video ones often get consumed in audio-only mode from my pocket.

  • Buzz Out Loud – A daily tech discussion show. A great way to stay up to date with current topics in tech. Usually pretty easily digestible at around 45 minutes. WebsiteiTunes direct-link
  • Co-op – A weekly gaming review video podcast. Really good, but not very audio-only friendly (lots of video clips from the games they’re reviewing), so skip this one if you’re looking for something to listen to while driving. WebsiteiTunes direct-link
  • The Totally Rad Show – A weekly video podcast. Three dudes talk about movies, video games, tv shows, comics, pop-culture, etc. The kind of show I wish I was hosting. Works pretty well in audio-only format as well. WebsiteiTunes direct-link
  • Kevin Pollak’s Chat Show – A weekly video podcast.  Kevin Pollak interviewing people in entertainment. Each episode runs pretty long (1.5-2hrs) but they’re almost always interesting and often really funny. Also works great in audio-only format. Website (don’t bother with the website though, it’s terrible) & iTunes direct-link
  • ROFL – A weekly video podcast. Standup comedy cut down to one joke (presumably the best of the set?) from comedians all over the US. Also works great in audio-only mode. Website & iTunes direct-link

I’ve got more… but these will do for now. Do you subscribe to any podcasts? If so, which ones? And if not, why not?

OC Transpo Mapping

June 19th, 2008 at 1:54 pm

octranspo.mobiSome interesting new options for trip planning with OC Transpo:

A new official mobile interface from OCTranspo: http://octranspo.mobi/. I’ve yet to see if it will be quicker/more easy to use than http://m.ocinfo.ca/ (formerly remino.net/oc560), but it certainly has more options and a mobile interface of the travel planner.

Also, Google Transit now supports Ottawa (when did this happen?!): http://www.google.com/transit

Much happier times in OC Transpo travel planning!
