In Praise of Podcasts

I never really got into podcasts, mainly because just looking at iTunes makes me want to bludgeon my face with a rock.

Until I recently discovered the Stitcher app which automatically and quickly downloads audio to your phone. It is a joy.

I subscribe to:
  • BBC World Service Africa Today
  • Development Drums
  • CGD’s wonkcast
  • Freakonomics
  • The Guardian Football Weekly
  • BBC Radio 4 More or Less
  • EconTalk
  • NPR
The Center for Global Development’s “wonkcast” is especially good; it is weekly, it’s not too long, and Lawrence MacDonald is a great host.

The last two episodes with Lant Pritchett and Andy Sumner are fantastic.
