I love podcasts. I've been listening to them for a couple years now, because I found Skeptics' Guide to the Universe, Skeptoid, and Scientific American. There are so many good podcasts out there, and such a huge diversity. Chariots of Iron, SGU, Skepticality, This American Life, Dan Carlin's Hardcore History, etc etc.

What initially draws you to a podcast- the topic, the slickness of their advertising, their format, the options they have available for their community- and just as importantly what keeps you listening- length, quality, editing, topics, professionalism?

I think that high quality, professional sounding/seeming, podcasts with interesting topics and knowledgeable discussions about those topics are my favorite. I listen, regularly, to several podcasts on the same very broad topics- skepticism, atheism- and I've heard similar interviews in the same week. When the topic is interesting enough, or if the hosts/discussions are interesting enough, even getting the same information a couple times is fine by me. Of course, I always love hearing interesting and different topics; but that's not always gonna happen- like around TAM time.

And if you don't listen to podcasts- why not? Where do you, those of you that do listen, listen at? What activities do you do while listening?

I listen to reasonable doubts podcaste, secular nation quite alot and CFI. Reasonable doubts if find the most interesting due to the counter apologetics. Next one's on sex and religion so it should be interesting...
