I’m someone who believes in lifelong learning – there’s always an opportunity to be enriched, educated, encouraged through books, music, magazines, whatever. Perhaps that is part of the reason I rarely spend a free moment without earphones on. The other being to drown out the voices in my head. For another time, I suppose.
So I thought I would share a list of the podcasts I subscribe to. All are synced across my PCs, tablets, phones and (my favorite) iPod Nano with Lunatik TikTok watch band.
Originally I thought about sharing a synopsis of each, along with an iTunes link but thought better of it. Without further ado, the list:
Paul Van Dyk’s VONYC Sessions
Tiesto’s Club Life Podcast
Planet Perfecto Podcast ft. Paul Oakenfold

The obvious question is “when do you have time to listen to all of these”? Well, I have found that a typical week for me has about 15hrs of time that is either “me” time or spent at least than maximum efficiency – driving/commuting, cooking, laundry, etc. I use these opportunities to multitask without necessarily impacting my primary task.
Also, many of these podcasts are less than an hour and produced once a week. But in a pinch I would offer that WSJ This Morning, Tech News Today are a daily ritual, TWiT, Windows Weekly and TWiG are weeky commits, while everything else I listen to sporadically.
