I've certainly transferred my movie addition to a podcast addiction - but I like to think listening to four half-hour science/skeptical/current affairs podcasts while I get some work done is far more constructive that 2 hours of silly alien/yakuza/superhero violence - though I still manage to fit enough of that in somehow...
Don't worry Chuck, I'm subscribed to over 70 podcasts (excluding the audiobooks) - thank goodness they only update once a week or so! Between sitting at my pc working, jogging, bus rides, cooking and cleaning, I somehow manage to get through them all and feel good about the multi-tasking. I can learn about how my brain works while I de-grease the oven - it's like a dream come true!
I've recently found a new one which I'd recommend to any classic science fiction fans - StarShipSofa
. It's a mix of narrated stories (the latest is Harry Harrison's By the Falls
) , and discussions on authors, books and various concepts in science fiction. Once you've (inevitably) run out of things to listen to, there's some good suggestions in the other podcast thread
. Some of my faves (apart from Drabblecast, Escape Pod and Pseudopod of course):
All in the Mind
The Brain Science Podcast
Quirks & Quarks
The Geologic Podcast
The Guardian Science Weekly
The Skeptic's Guide to the Universe
