So here are 1 old fave podcast and 2 new other things I’m really diggin’ on right now, and you might too!
#1 – Macbreak Weekly
This is a podcast I’ve listened to for about 2 years, and can’t wait for each weekly episode to come out. It’s hosted by Leo Laporte (anyone remember Tech TV?), and he’s joined by a usual cast of very knowledgeable – and very funny people. And after just one listen, I was enjoying their camaraderie even more than the content they provided!
The content is their review, analysis and projections of Apple technologies (Macs, iPhones, etc.), as well as how they relate to the rest of the industry as a whole. Always good – and entertaining stuff.
#2 – History of Jazz – iTunes U
These are a series of FREE audio downloads (podcast) from iTunes U. The content is a very entertaining and well put together by its presenter, Dr. Gordon Vernick. This is a MUST for any musician, whether you’re familiar with playing jazz or not. It’s always important to know where our music has come and evolved from. It’s almost a Jazz for Dummies, but with some depth.
#3 – Pitchmen
Definitely one of my favorite new shows! You know Billy Mays – the guy who pitches Oxy Clean, Kaboom, Mighty Putty, etc. on TV. Well, he and other famous pitchman Anthony Sullivan have worked together for 20 years, and now Discovery Channel is taking a look behind the scenes of what they do and how they do it. And it’s really interesting! And, like most Discovery “reality” shows like Mythbusters or American Chopper, the entertainment value is really high. I’m really diggin’ it.
