I do a lot of walking every day, and more often than not I'll be listening to a podcast to pass the time and to perhaps learn something.

I have a pretty decent lineup that keeps me entertained most of the time, but I'm always keen to learn of new podcasts that I may not have tried. So, I thought I'd start a thread here and see if there are any other fans of podcasts here that wouldn't mind sharing their favourites.

As for me, this is what I'm listening to on any given walk:

The /Filmcast - A movie/TV news and review show. The three hosts are fun to listen to, and each episode they will talk about some movie news, what they've been watching, as well as review one (or sometimes two) newly released movie. They're always careful about avoiding spoilers, which is nice and a reason I often don't read movie reviews. Each episode is usually 90-120 minutes.

Daily Tech Headlines and TWiT Bits - These two shows scratch the same itch. They're very short shows giving daily technology news. Not very in-depth, basically a headline and a few minutes of details. If there's something that seems particularly interesting, I then just Google to learn more. Each episode is between 4-10 minutes.

Here's the Thing - An NPR show hosted by Alec Baldwin, where he has a conversation with various interesting people from many different walks of life. From politicians, to actors and filmmakers, to businesspeople, to authors, and so on. Each episode is 30-60 minutes.

Material - Another tech news show that's primarily about Android (the operating system) and also the overall Google eco-system of products and services. Each episode is 60-90 minutes.

The Nerdist Podcast - Chris Hardwick (often along with one or two co-hosts) do long-form interviews with various Hollywood people. He's got a charming, disarming way about him and while the various celebrities are usually there to plug a movie or show, the vast majority of each interview is generally just a big long conversation. Each episode is usually 60 minutes.

WhiskyCast - This is the granddaddy of all whisky podcasts, but I only just started listening to it the other day. Mark Gillespie talks about various whisky news and often interviews someone from the whisky world. Each episode is usually 45-75 minutes.

The Whisky Topic - Mark Bylok (author of The Whisky Cabinet) and Jamie Johnson basically sit around and talk about whisky. Each episode is different than the other, but sometimes they interview someone, other times they discuss something newsworthy out of the whisky world, and sometimes they discuss and explore one particular topic. Each episode is usually 45-60 minutes.

It's been a while since I listened to Podcasts religiously, but I know of a low key bourbon show presented by a couple of English guys www.bourbongents.com
