A Random Wednesday Conversation Starter

Do you listen to any podcasts? If so, which ones?

On a tangential note, what do you think of TED Talks? This came up on Facebook this morning.

At this point I listen to Coverville. My friend Arthur does AmeriNZ spottily, and 2Political even more so.

Good TED is good. I'd say I really have enjoyed 80% of them.

I've taken to walking for an hour or so in the afternoons, and most days I listen to podcasts of NPR's Fresh Air or a locally produced (Salt Lake City) general-interest talkshow called RadioWest. Once in a while, I throw in a podcast by a local radio personality called The Let's Go Eat Show, where the radio guy (Bill Allred is his name) interviews interesting people from the Salt Lake area over lunch. His guests have included local-market TV journalists, filmmakers, business owners, and eccentrics.

(Geez, do you think I used the word "local" enough?)

I confess that I haven't paid a lot of attention to the TED stuff. I'm aware of them, but I don't have the time at work to listen to/view long video clips, and I haven't found any of them compelling enough to seek out when I get home...

PTI to get my 'sports fix'... TED Talk is just another form to give people a PEP talk when needed in just ANOTHER form of media.... Nothing big!
