Blog: Podcasts I like  
Hey, I haven't done an entry about podcasts lately!

For those of you just joining us, most of the time I'm drawing (and when I walk the dog at night) I listen to podcasts. I do not listen to any comics-related podcasts. Let's see what's been in the rotation these days (all available on itunes)...

Comedy Death Ray--Scott Aukerman chats and plays games with various comedians and characters.

Coverville--Nothing but cover songs, and the only music podcast I listen to anymore.

Dan Carlin's Hardcore History--One of the best podcasts around if you're into history.

Doug Loves Movies--Doug Benson chats about movies and plays games with various comedians.

Freakonomics Radio--Two economists offer interesting ways of looking at topics you might not have considered.

Hey! We're Back!--Jonthan Katz doing short comedic skits.

How Did This Get Made?--
Comedian Paul Scheer and friends make fun of crappy movies.

Judge John Hodgman--The humorous writer settles various inane disputes.

My History Can Beat Up Your Politics--A look at current events in the context of U.S. history

Never Not Funny (Season 6)--Comedian Jimmy Pardo cracks wise with assorted comedy guests.

The Onion Radio News--Snippets of the news from the jokers at The Onion

The Pod F. Tompkast--Comedian Paul F. Tompkins performs an assortment of funny spoofs, skits and satires.

The Retroist--A look back at pop cultural stuff mostly from 1970-1990

Steve Agee: Uhhhhh--Comediactor Steve Agee rambles about DeGrassi High: The Next Generation

This American Life--If you're reading a blog entry about podcasts you know what this one is already.

Who Charted?--Comedian Howard Kramer and friends look at various top-5 lists for the week.

WNYC's Radio Lab--Fascinating look at the world around us that will freak you out many times.

WTF--Comedian Marc Maron interviews fellow comedian and angrily rants.

Anything new that people have gotten into lately?
Also, for the record I have sampled the podcasts below and just didn't find them my cup of tea for various reasons:
--Wait! Wait! Don't Tell Me!
--40 Year Old Boy
--Adam Corrolla
--The Nerdist
--You Look Nice Today
