What good tech (preferably audio) podcasts are there?  Not overly technical.  Basically I am looking for a TWIT without all the crap.  If they did that show and condensed it to 15 - 20 minutes, it would be good, but instead they pad it out repeating themselves over and over and over.

I have tried the NPR tech podcast too, but I find them too annoying, and a bit dumbed-down.

Buzz out Loud and Tech News Today do a good job at condensing the last 24hrs of news into half an hour or so of commentary.

Engadget Podcast is better for a long form discussion.

What are you looking for? News, general tech, gadgets? All of the above?

I subscribe to PCMag Radio, Gdgt podcast, TWIT, Windows Weekly and Macbreak Weekly.

Used to subscribe to Buzz out loud but found everyday a bit OTT for tech news. TWIT also has their new daily show hosted by Tom Merritt who used to do Buzz Out Load.

Handle9: What are you looking for? News, general tech, gadgets? All of the above?


All of the above, I guess.  In particular gadgets and social media, but want to catch any major tech news that falls out of those 2 categories as well.  Definitely a weekly format would be better unless it's a really short daily one that I can queue up and listen to a few at once. 

On a separate note, a geeky coders podcast would be cool that covered linux/java/google.  I imagine it would be harder to get the right balance between generalist and too technical, given the format of audio-only.  If I wanted more in depth, I would sit down and read or watch a video, but I mostly listen to podcasts on the go or while doing menial work.

Thanks for everyone's suggestions so far.  Keep them coming.
