I have become a big fan of podcasts within the last 5 years or so. I love the ability of being able to listen to a podcast at a time that is convenient to me. I probably listen to about 10 podcasts on a regular basis and there are others that I listen to on an occasional basis.
Here are a few podcasts that are among my favorites. I will list others in future posts on this topic, but I will start with these three because I listened to all three this weekend.
1) Mark Steyn (Substituting for Rush Limbaugh) – Steyn is my favorite substitute host for Rush. I think Steyn’s wit and his decidedly un-PC sense of humor always produce an entertaining show when Mark is substituting for the Big Voice on the Right.
2) Webster Tarpley’s World Crisis Radio – Webster Tarpley is a Washington D.C. based author, historian and journalist. His podcast is presented weekly and presents his views on the major domestic political events of the past week and his view of the geopolitical landscape around the globe, especially hotspots, such as Europe, the Middle East and Asia. This choice might come as surprise to those of you who know that my personal politics lean right of center on most issues, because Tarpley is way, way out on the left. I rarely find myself in agreement with Tarpley, but I respect his views because he is very well educated (BA Princeton, MA Skidmore College, Ph.D. Catholic University of Ammerica) and he offers a lot of insights you won’t find in the MSM. I also appreciate his literary and historical references, which I think are quite funny sometimes.
Oddly enough, I discovered Tarpley on the Alex Jones show. He was a frequent guest on AJ’s show until he started hosting his own show on the Genenis Communications Network.
3) ESPN UFC Podcast – Hosted by Garth A. Davies and Ben Blackmore from the UK. This is weekly podcast that discusses the the fights and fighters of the Ultimate Fighting Championship. These guys always provide interesting analysis of UFC fights that have just taken place, as well as predictions for upcoming fights.
