Podcast news and poll

The Classic Tales Podcast is currently presenting a dramatic reading of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol in three parts. The Sword of Gryffindor blog (sword_gryff on LJ) is hosting a discussion of each of the three installments.

Speaking of holiday podcasts, I highly recommend checking out the old "Yule 2005" episode of the Cremation Ground: Emanations Podcast for some wonderful medieval, world, and Gothic music. You can read the setlist here.

While I'm on the subject of podcasts, I thought I'd ask about the listening habits of my friends. I subscribe to two podcasts, The Classic Tales and StarShipSofa, but I also try to keep an eye on several others, including The Atlanta Radio Theatre's Podcast, The Signal, Sword of Gryffindor: Hog's Head Pubcast, Reading the Gothic, The Horror! (Old Time Radio) (for the Lovecraft!), and Cremation Ground: Emanations.

What are your favorite podcasts?

I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember.

- from Oliver Herford, "I Heard a Bird Sing"

Lovely verse from Herford. I have not gotten too into podcasts but maybe I'll check out some of those you mention. I have found podcasts to be "cluttery" to use but, if I found one I could really get into, it might be worth it.

Since I started using them in my classes (with good results), I've grown really to appreciate some of them. I know what you mean about being cluttery; I think that's why I prefer to hunt and choose individual installments rather than subscribing to every episode in most cases. For me podcasts definitely were an acquired taste, but I did acquire it. :)
