I am lucky enough to have a day job that allows me to listen to my iPod 95% of the day.  While I love my music and my audible books, I have found the resource of podcasts to be invaluable.  Most of them are free and they are full of educational goodness in an entertaining way.  Through podcasts I have learned astronomy, how to shrink a human head, tons of history, and how to improve my writing. 

Since I have found so much enjoyment and so much information through these podcasts, I thought it a good idea to share my personal top 5 podcast list. 

#1 – Writing Excuses – Thank you Brandon Sanderson, Mary Robinette Kowal, Howard Tayler, and Dan Wells for your enlightening discussions on the writing craft. 

#2 – Stuff You Missed In History Class – These ladies are awesome and there is no telling what jump through history you might take when you listen.  

#3 – The Bugle – John Oliver and Andy Zaltzman are just plain hilarious.

#4 – Stuff You Should Know –  This is where I learned how to shrink a human head.  There could be debate on whether I needed to know that or not, but I’m sure I will use the information wisely … In my writing, I swear!

#5 – Mysterious Universe  – Just a forewarning, this podcast did give me a nightmare once.  Some of the stuff they discuss is just plain creepy. 

That’s it!  That’s my top 5.  If anyone has a podcast that they think I should check out, I’m happy to do so.
