Before I totally blow up my iPhone with the iOS 5 update (said demolition is already underway, as I forgot to take screenshots of all my apps before iTunes decided to start uninstalling a bunch of them, oops), here’s the list of what I’m subscribing to. It’s unlikely that this list will get zapped, but never bet against disaster when patching, I always say.

You can find all of these podcasts in the usual places. A list of obscurities, this is not.

* denotes a video podcast, at least some of the time. (Some podcasts include both audio and video podcasts.)

Fifty-two podcasts seems like a lot, doesn’t it? Most of them are actually relatively short, and many of them are weekly or even less frequent. And I’ve also set iTunes to default to just keeping the latest episode of a podcast, and to remove any podcast that’s been listened to all the way through. It works out to four to eight hours of custom radio to listen to at work each day. It beats listening to the radio.
