- BBC Click: Recently with a revised format since the demise of Digital Planet, not always the most interesting but tries hard.
- Gardeners' Question Time: If it's fine I'm usually out in the garden on Sunday afternoon so I usually miss the broadcast.
- GeekBeat.TV: Used to be great, is now monotonous product placement.
- More or Less: Behind the Stats: Sometimes interesting, sometimes dull.
- Rocketboom: Seems to have died. Anyone know what's going on with Rocketboom?
- This Week in Microbiology: Vincent Racaniello's offering.
- This WEEK in TECH: Has gone off. The new format is over-long and the same guests week after week.
- This Week in Virology: Vincent Racaniello's other offering.
Producing a truly engaging podcast is non-sustainable in the long term (certainly for me, Ze Frank and others). With social networks biting into the engagement previously achieved by podcasts, amateur production values are no longer acceptable - they don't compete with professional media to hold my attention. If I want that kind of informality, I go to a Google+ Hangout.
So is there any hope for me/podcasting? Do I just need to renew my feeds?
Any recommendations - what are your favourites? I'll give you a hint: I'm not looking for to middle aged guys mumbling into a microphone for an hour about educational technology, and I'm not looking for a 14 year old rapping about quantum physics. I'm looking for a spark.
