Curry and Podcasts

Posted on 2007/03/03 11:54:52 (March 2007).

[Thursday 1st March]
Chie made curry (of the Indian variety) for dinner, which was jolly nice.

I passed some of the evening with my iPod. If anyone is interested here's a brief rundown of some of the podcasts I subscribe to.

The Show with Ze Frank. I don't always know what he's going on about but do find something oddly engaging about this. Tonight I watched the one where he was doing an interview with that American pastor of "I'm about to whip somebody's ass" fame, which I found, well, oddly engaging.

Learn Japanese. I think I like this even more since coming back to the UK, as I find I actually quite miss the sound of Japanese being spoken regularly. It's particularly interesting to me because of all the Osaka dialect they use, rather than sticking to stuffy textbook Japanese.

Russell Brand. Yes, pretty much like everyone else and his dog in the UK. For better or worse though I do actually find these chaps quite funny.

Ah... My own Podcast subscriptions are decidedly less cool... :( New Scientist, Archaeology Channel, Archaeocast and British Mac. I'm coming to the conclusion I'm probably a bit "sad"...

Actually it's quite strange I don't find podcasts so interesting... Never tried one properly, but if I have my ipod on I find myself listening more to music than "words"... Guess I should give it a go probably...

Yea the bulk of podcasts do appear to be pretty uninteresting - I've tried quite a few, and the three above are basically the only ones I still regularly listen to / watch.
