Podcasts

Usually I don't listen to podcasts due to multitasking. If I really need to concentrate on something, I can listen to music that I've heard before and it fades into the background. But talking that's new to me? I either miss what's being said, or don't complete my task properly.

I get the feed from KnitPicks (Kelley Petkun), but don't usually tune in on the computer. So, today I'll try downloading some more radio-like items to the iPod and see if I can run errands and come back with the groceries that were on the list.

The potential playlist includes: "Wait, Wait Don't Tell Me" and "Car Talk" from NPR, and Adam Carolla.

If this works, I might be able to keep up with one or two a week, but I don't know if I'll ever get to one a day.

I also saw some Old Time Radio titles, but it is probably easier to just load full series and listen to them at leisure than wait for each installment?
