In last week's Get Some Victory newsletter, I asked readers if they could recommend some good podcasts. Got some great suggestions.
From Gamma Sync -
EconTalk - http://www.econtalk.org/
Australian Broadcasting Corporation - http://www.abc.net.au/
--GS's notes: Recommends "All in the Mind" weekly show on psychology and cognitive issues. The Philosophers Zone often good.
Canadian Broadcasting Company - http://www.cbc.ca/
--GS's notes: Good, but their shows aren't available for long, and no transcripts/links.
From Brooks -
Mixergy podcasts - http://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/mixergy-audio-podcast-channel/id348690336
Sebastian note: I love Mixergy, but I didn't realize there was a podcast! I thought it was video-only, so this is a huge boon to me. :) :) :)
From Colleen -
Colin Marshall's "The Marketplace of Ideas":
Colleen's favorite episodes:
Merlin Mann (it's also Merlin's own fave of all his interviews, so there you go!)
Tyler Cowan (the "personal economies" ep)
Livia Bloom (on filmmaker Errol Morris)
Sam Snyder -
Sam sent me this link of this large list of podcasts he put together here:
I've got a flight to Saigon coming up, so I'll be taking train to airport, time in airport, time on plane, time from airport... which means I'll be getting stocked on these before the plane flight.

Day Twenty-Six turned out to be incredible.
Lately, I've been working a practical process to get into "High Creative Mode" -- I think has a high hit-rate for getting into that Mode, but I'm not able to consistently execute it. D26, I did --
Strange opening to the day. Didn't sleep on the 15th to force-normalize my sleep schedule.
Woke up at 12:30AM after roughly 8 hours -- earlier than I expected, but I felt awake and refreshed.
First 90 minutes of day I spent reading, answered a couple emails, surfed the net, had water and coffee, was a little groggy. I'm waking up now.
Using the iPhone's Podcast app, I'm able to listen to thousands of podcasts in the car. It's priceless (and free), and a way to soak up knowledge I otherwise wouldn't have time for.
Some of my favorite podcasts are (links open iTunes):
- This American Life
- WNYC's Radio Lab
- American Public Media's "Marketplace"
Using the iPhone's Podcast app, I'm able to listen to thousands of podcasts in the car. It's priceless (and free), and a way to soak up knowledge I otherwise wouldn't have time for. Some of my favorite podcasts are (links open iTunes): - This American Life - WNYC's Radio Lab - American Public Media's "Marketplace" - CBS' 60 Minutes And the best part is that because the iPhone can play podcasts at 2x speed, and since "60 Minutes" is really just 42 minutes without the ads, that means at 2x I can listen to a full 60 Minutes show in just 30 minutes (interestingly, "2x" is actually 1.5x... I guess 2x sounded better to Apple). Amazing.
