latest podcast rundown & day 4, down!

Day 4 = going strong.

Still no Facebook urges.
Still no cheating!
Still not really finding any spare swathes of time, but I have been pretty productive at work.

After reading that Laura did an interview with Manoush Zomorodi (can't wait to hear it!), I have decided that MZ NEEDS to have the Unplugged30 featured on her podcast, which is one of my absolute favorites.  I am slightly podcast obsessed.  I think it would be so much fun to be on one, and have even thought about recording one.  Because clearly I have enough time and energy for that.  Or not.

On that note . . .

Current podcast role call:
1) Note to Self - aforementioned podcast on the intersection of tech & life (with a decidedly feminine bent)

2) Happier - Gretchen Rubin & her sister waxing on about habits and happiness.  Immensely popular, it seems.

3) All Songs Considered - has overtaken #4 as my favorite music podcast.  Mostly mixes of new music and the occasional interview.  I love the mixes.  Current find from the last episode: AURORA

4) Sound Opinions - still love this music review podcast; I have been listening forever

5) Serial because obviously.  Though this season isn't grabbing me quite so tightly as the mysterious (and still unsolved) case of Adnan Syed.

6 & 7) Marathon Training Academy & Another Mother Runner.  My running podcasts.  Generally only listened to while running, how meta.

8) Eliza Starting At 16.  Yes, I am listening to Gretchen Rubin's daughter's podcast.  It makes me feel SUPER old but feels like good prep for 10 years from now . . .

9) Planet Money.  I actually might like this more than Freakonomics now (though I still like both).  Oddly compelling for someone with no financial knowledge or business sense.

10) Pop Culture Happy Hour.  Book, movie, TV, etc reviews.  I don't listen to every episode but somehow this often feels like the right choice for my Friday afternoon drives home.

I generally listen in the car.  I need to be careful not to completely crowd out music, because I really love just blasting music and relaxing (and maybe singing).  But oh, how I love podcasts for my commute!
