What’s on my iPod?

Several people have asked me what I have on my iPod, so I thought I’d share it here.  I’ll write more reviews of my favorites when I get a chance.

I listen to a tremendous amount of non-music content on my iPod.  However, I don’t listen to any content on my computer while I’m working as I find it distracting.  I listen to my iPod in the car, while walking, and occasionally when working around the house.  Here is a summary of most of what I have on my iPod and how often I listen to serial podcasts (Regularly, Occasionally, Infrequently, Rarely) or how much I’ve covered of a podcast with a fixed number of episodes (All, Most, Some, Few).

    Bill great collection of podcasts! Not sure how you can stay current on all of these…. Would love to hear your reviews of some of them (when you get a chance).

    Hi Bill. Great idea to categorize and tag the podcasts.
    I’ve got to get sweettt.com out of the infrequent podcast category.
    Maybe if I stopped trying to split them into smaller episodes it would help… But
    Then they would be a couple hours long… Hmmm

    I can’t say I stay current on all of them. When I work from home and my drive time is down, I fall behind on the podcasts.

    I also have gone through many audiobooks. I highly recommend the 7th Son trilogy by JC Hutchins. I’ve listened to all of Scott Sigler’s books but they are not for the faint of heart. I often hear about other podcast books by listening to these two authors.
