I have burned through most of the podcasts I subscribe to, and I'm looking for new things to listen to at work. What do you guys listen to? What should I try next?

Here are some of the podcasts I subscribe to and enjoy, for a baseline reference.


WTF with Marc Maron
Comedy and everything else
Am I right?

Roll Playing games:

The Dungeon Master Guys
Roll for Initiative
The NewbieDM

How we get By (now defunct)

I tried The Sporkful podcast on several suggestions. However for a show "not for foodies, but for eaters" they really argue over trivial minutia more than inform. Five minutes an episode talking about crumbs left in butter and the merits of adding milk before cereal made me an unsubscriber.

General Interest:

This American Life
Stuff you should know
Boing Boing Gweek
The Straight Dope

Loudtwitter, the service that posts daily tweets to ones blog is discontinued. So here is a collection of recent tweets, gathered by hand.
- Clever dog carrier ( via @violetcarson )

- Reading Wish I could have the brain of @dresdencodak for 20 minutes. 25 tops.

- Joss talking about season 8 of #Firefly. Let it die already. The musical episode with @ActuallyNPH jumped the shark #fakeSDCCReport
- The Doctor Who / Firefly crossover was very good. Bought the "Inara kissing Rose Tyler" maquette. #fakeSDCCReport

- David Boreanaz, @NathanFillion, @EddieMcClintock, and Jay Harrington making a movie. Squarejaw Geekcore is a genre? #fakeSDCCReport

- Went for an open casting call for extras with beards. About time this thing started earning its keep.

- The most apt description of @MrHoratioSanz in the most apt font. #SNL #fonts

- The louder you are, often the less you have to say.

- *Doh* @Mark_Sheppard's lapel pin is upside down on #Warehouse13 episode 3. Well, I notice such things.

- Told some people I was playing 1st ed AD&D. Told me I was playing wrong system. Called me ignorant, and a heretic #loudmouthschnooks.

- pinking shears never changed the colour of anything #lies

- A high school unit on Patents, Copyright, and Trademarks would not be a wasted hour.

- I don't always mean it when I'm being ironic.

- Me: Play The Killers on random, please. iPod: Here are 10 songs in Billboard charting order. Me: How did you do that? iPod: Magic

- According to this scam email, members of the FBI start their correspondence with "Compliments of the day" #419

- DM lesson: 2 identical looking encounters looks like an infinite number of encounters. #noobdnd #dnd

- What's with the ball caps with the flat brims? Leaving it flat would have got your ass kicked in my day #old.

- There are 10 kinds of people: People who understand binary, people who don't, and people who start array counts at 0.

- I bought a copy of "The Extremes of Good and Evil" by Cicero but huge sections were just dummy text. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet my ass

Is it worth it to you, my occasional readers to keep dumping my tweets to LJ? I know some people hate it but mister_sable and laughingmagpie do seem to enjoy the updates, and the opportunity to comment without being on twitter themselves.

22:57 Found a Drivers License. Couldn't find the person's phone number, facebook, or twitter. going to mail it back. Cops said to take it in. #

00:57 Nothing quite like staring at a blank search bar, trying to remember what was so important that it couldn't wait to look up later. #

15:15 My iPhone tongs should be hitting the market soon. #

15:57 Did @oldspice donate to the gulf cleanup effort? Or is the honeymoon over with @Alyssa_Milano ? #

22:13 Late night battles: Jay vs Letterman, Jay vs Conan. Everyone else seems to get along just fine. What is the common factor? #teamconan #

22:58 I think @jimmyfallon should put the audience drawings on a giant fridge door. #

23:01 I dont think that's how @questlove wanted Sprint or Kin to know he just got an iphone. #latenightjimmy #

12:19 This is what I thought when I read the spam subject line #

16:52 I'm a better man, and a better human being than Mel Gibson. Who knew the bar on "Sexiest ma
n alive" was so low. #

12:55 Revealed! Personalized video explaining why @oldspice guy doesn't say "I'm on a bike" in commercial. #

13:13 I think @OldSpice makes the video in advance, then waits for the appropriate person to make the preordained question. #

16:50 I'd really like a collection of interviews and behind-the-scenes footage to get a deeper understanding of how documentaries are made. #

13:33 A flatulence of CG #collectivenouns #

14:06 Stupid art. Making me feel feelings. #

16:31 Woody was talking about me. Especially the part about the jungle cat. #NYC #

10:14 John Noble was not nominated for an Emmy. The whole process is clearly flawed. #fringe #

13:13 RPGs are to board games as psychiatry is to surgery. #dnd #RPG #noobdnd #

13:14 I'd haunt the hell out you. #
