    Podcasts I’m Listening to in 2022

    This time around I’ve written a Python script to take the OPML file from Podcast Republic and generate the list along with URLs and official descriptions for all the podcasts. If I have additional thoughts I’ll add them after the official description. The World Around Us 99% Invisible – Official Description: Design is everywhere in […]

  • First 24 Hours with Podcast Republic

    First 24 Hours with Podcast Republic

    It took me a while to get the hang of the many, many options within Podcast Republic so that I could get it to work the way I wanted – automatically downloading episodes on WiFi. Unlike Doggcatcher, but more like other modern pod catchers, you can stream a podcast instead of always having to download […]

  • Evaluating moving from Doggcatcher to Podcast Republic

    I’ve been using Doggcatcher for YEARS – ever since I first got a smartphone something like 8 or so years ago. I started using Doggcatcher on Dan’s recommendation. One of the best features it’s had is the ability to speed up podcasts without chipmunking the voice. (I think that came a year or so after […]

    Podcasts I’m Listening to in 2017

    I’ve both added and dropped some podcasts since last time around. Where I’m listing the same podcast as last year I may use the same description as in the past with slight (or no) variation.

    Podcasts I’m Listening to in 2016

    I’ve both added and dropped some podcasts since last time around. Ever since I started using Doggcatcher on my cellphone I’ve been able to listen to more podcasts because, even without the pitch distortion my sandisk had, it plays the content a lot faster. Where I’m listing the same podcast as last year I may […]

  • Review: Sansa Clip Zip

    I’ve been using MP3 players since they first existed. I can’t remember the name of the device, but I got it with my Audible subscription. Then, I used my PDA for a while – remember those? Then I used an iPod Shuffle, but it didn’t work well with my Linux computer. The database kept getting […]

  • Podcasts I’m Listening to 2013

    I’ve cut back a lot because I have less time to listen to podcasts. Here are the ones I have now:   Video Games Giant Bombcast – This is a HILARIOUS podcast that is mostly about video games.  I say it’s mostly about video games because these guys often will go off on random tangents […]

  • Podcasts I’m Listening To

    I’ve been listening to podcasts for about two years now.  I got into it because I love listening to some NPR programs, but they are always on when I’m at work or asleep on the weekends.  Eventually, I heard on NPR that they have podcasts of various shows.  I checked it out right away because […]

  • Is it Obsolete? NPR Radio Stations

    I am a huge listener of public radio programming, but I no longer listen to my local NPR station. Most of the time I just listen to podcasts of the shows that would otherwise be broadcast on NPR. The basic force behind this is the same as the reason why I loved my MythTV when […]
