Listen and learn: podcasts on creativity, science, technology and human thought.

Podcasts

I read a lot. I read to keep up with the latest trends and best practices in Web development and I read for entertainment. But there are times when reading isn't practical (driving comes to mind), and there are words that don't make it to the printed page, but are instead spoken and recorded.

To take advantage of those words and the thoughts they convey, I've subscribed to a number of podcasts covering everything from cooking to philosophy. Below are a few of my favorites—the shows I make time for each week.

Boag World

Boagworld, "the longest running and most popular web design podcast," offers insightful and practical advice on all aspects of Web design—conveyed with a sense of humor that makes it as entertaining as it is informative.
