I did a brief podcast sharing talk at Future Camp at burning man, where I detailed some of my favorite podcasts, and then asked others to share, because there is a significant “finding cost” in locating excellent podcasts.
I was asked to provide my podcast list with links, so here it is:
Escape Pod, a sci-fi short story podcast.
C-realm podcast, c stands for consciousness. “Discussions on topics focused on the coming Vingean Singularity, Entheogenic Exploration, the re-localization of community & agriculture, and Individual Conscious Autonomy.”
KunstlerCast, featuring James Howard Kunstler, a weekly audio program about the tragic comedy of suburban sprawl.
The Moth, live storytelling performances.
Robots Podcast, “Robots is the podcast for news and views on robotics. In addition to insights from high-profile professionals, Robots will take you for a ride through the world’s research labs, robotics companies and their latest innovations.”
Radio Ecoshock, Latest science, authors, issues – from climate change, oceans, forests, pollution, and peace.
