My Favorite Podcasts...

Smodcast
Why I listen:
I'll be that first to admit that I'm one of those people that thinks Kevin Smith is a freakin' genius. He has yet to make a movie that I didn't like and frankly, anyone that doesn't like his brand of humor needs to get the stick out of their ass. If you're looking for a good laugh and can handle jokes that are cruder and language that is harsher that he could ever get away with in the movies this podcast is vastly entertaining. One word of warning though... be careful about listening to this while you're driving... I've nearly crashed my car more than once from laughing too hard.

Hometown Tales
Why I listen:
As they say, every town has a tale and these two guys bring you the strangest and most fascinating tales from all over the world. UFO's, hauntings, bigfoot and other strangeness makes it's way into each show and if you're like me and are fascinated by the unknown and the bizarre this is definitely worth taking a listen to.

NPR: Talk of the Nation
Why I listen:
I love NPR... let me repeat that... I LOVE NPR. If that makes me some sort of intellectual weirdo then so be it. Talk of the Nation has always been a great way to get a good dose of perspective and commentary on current events... now that they are podcasting it I can listen to it on my own schedule. One bonus is that they are now including the Science Friday podcast on the same feed as well... no need for two subscriptions... .WOO HOO!

Night of the Living Podcast
Why I listen:
HORROR MOVIES FTW! This podcast deals in everything horror... movies, TV, books, and yes, even music. With listening to this podcast I've been exposed to things that I wouldn't have otherwise known about. Be warned however... these guys are not professionals and often times get off task and there have been a few shows where I've had to wade through a lot of nonsense before getting to the good stuff. Still... worth a listen if you're a horrorhound like me.

Major Spoilers
Why I listen:
Comic books... they ain't for kiddies anymore! This podcast is everything comic books. Every show gives you the lowdown on the latest happenings in the world of comics. At this point I've only listened to a couple of their shows, but so far I am fairly impressed.
