What do you listen to?

For about the last year or so, I have been listening to a lot of Podcasts, mostly dealing with IT related topics. What I really like about Podcasting is the informal way most of the shows are done. Sure, it sounds great when you listen to a show that is perfectly clean and polished, but I really enjoy the shows that are more like friends sitting around and talking about work, life, and technology. After listening to a few shows, it almost feels like you personally know the show hosts your listening to.

I thought I would post some of the different Podcasts I listen to, which you will hopefully find entertaining and useful:

Casting from the Server Room - Deals mostly with technology in educational environments, but contains a lot of useful information that can be applied to any area. Highly recommended.

Geeks & God  - This show is directed to the use of technology in churches and ministries. An excellent resource for anyone involved in church technology (audio, worship presentations, websites, etc).

PaulDotCom Security Weekly - As the title suggests, this show focuses on security discussions. Topics consist of newly discovered vulnerabilities, penetration testing, and special guests consisting of security professionals and researchers.

Mind of Root - Formerly known as "A Couple of Admins Podcasting", this show has topics relating to general IT topics including networking, desktops, OS's, scripting and things that anyone in IT could be exposed to on an average day. Very informative.

If you have any suggestions, I'm always willing to try out other shows. Just post a comment with your recommendation and I'll check it out.



Hanselminutes and Stack Overflow are my favorites at the moment, especially the recent Hanselminutes where Scott's wife Mo interviews him. Stack Overflow is more of the "people sitting around talking" type, can't say that I agree with them all the time, but still good.
