I, the Podcast Junkie

Is podcasting the wave of the future? Probably not. But it's fun as hell. If you're a big science fiction fan like me, you really shouldn't miss Escape Pod, a sci-fi podcast magazine that broadcasts (and makes its MP3 downloads available) very faithfully every Thursday. Each week, these fellows offer excellent readings of brand new sci-fi stories...and there's seldom a clinker. Also terrific is Spaceship Radio, which presents weekly podcasts of public domain sci-fi radio plays from the 1940s and '50s, written by some of the real legends of the genre. Every episode is prefaced with a short talk about the contemporary science that surrounds the subject of the drama. I'm downloading the archives of both of these sites for our two-week trip to Hawaii (more on the trip later).

By the way, both these sites are free...but be kind enough to send 'em a few bucks via PayPal if you use their services as extensively as I do.
