The Weekly Planet: 143 Dumb Movie Futures That Are Wrong

I love Australian podcasters and I love Sci fi futures. This is one of the more perfect episodes of one of the more perfect podcasts in existence. Subscribe in iTunes here.

What's This Tao All About?: Show 10 – The Three Treasures and Chapter 17

Since college when I first read the Tao Te Ching and (more on my level) the Tao Te Pooh, I've considered myself at least a bit of a Taoist.

It may not be for everyone and I know many of my fellow Christians would look ascance at me claiming both, but the Tao is just an ethos for living, and one that for me aligns directly with what I understand of Jesus.

This is the first podcast I've found that captures the calm but inquisitive feeling I get from the Tao. If that sounds like your kind of thing, dig in. Subscribe in iTunes here.

Clockwise: 145: I’ve Always Wanted to Have a French Accent

A great show for people who like tech news but not hours and hours of it. 30 minutes or less, 4 topics, 4 hosts, very well done. And in this episode they talk about Pokémon Go! Subscribe in iTunes here.

The Feed - Post PM16

This one isn't for everyone but if you are a Podcaster whether or not you host with Libsyn this is a "need to listen to" podcast. This week in particular was interesting as I just saw Rob and Elsie at Podcast Movement, and they discuss their experiences at the conference. Subscribe in iTunes.

I am  Salt Lake: #214 - 100 Things to Do in Salt Lake Before You Die

When Kelly and I took our recent cross country road trip, we originally planned to go to Salt Lake City. I searched for a local Podcast to listen to in preparation and this was it. We actually didn't go that way but the show was interesting nonetheless.

I missed meeting the couple behind the show at Podcast Movement, but I've "met" them both online since. Good show about the interesting things people and places in SLC. Subscribe in iTunes here.
