About Podcasts, Bill Seitz rants:

Speaking of Podcasts: Check out the Battlestar Galactica Podcast. It's like getting the DVD commentary track, but about a year early. Finally, my hunch is confirmed that Battlestar Galactica's opening sequence with episode preview is "an homage to Space 1999".

Meanwhile, I've just about got a full commute to and from work filled with pretty good quality content--or at least decently entertaining content (to me)--to the point that I've almost stopped listening to NPR. Also, it's becoming a rapidly heating issue at work--not sure if it will go where I hope it does, but I've started getting drafted to educate some co-workers in other departments.
