I decided to write a quick post showing my favorite podcasts. Check them out, they’re good. (ITunes links will open up in ITunes.)
Writing Excuses (ITunes Link) – If you’re writing, this is awesome. It’s done by Brandon Sanderson (Author of Mistborn, Elantris, Warbreaker, the forthcoming Wheel of Time book, etc), Dan Wells (Author of I am Not a Serial Killer), and Howard Tayler (Webcomic Author of Schlock Mercenary). They give tips on how to be a good writer, have good guest authors, and have writing prompts to help you keep up your writing. It’s good stuff.
Science@NASA (ITunes Link) – If you like astronomy, this is the podcast for you. They tell stories of the past, inform you of cool forthcoming events, and give you a good science kick.
Grammar Girl (ITunes Link) – I know my grammar’s not the best, but I do want to improve myself. The Grammar Girl podcast tackles a different grammar topic (usually answering questions submitted from listeners) and it is really useful.
JapanesePod101 (ITunes Link) – If you’re learning Japanese, check these out. They are well produced and include lots of extra information to help you learn.
Please feel free to comment any other podcasts you think I would enjoy. 🙂

One thought on “Favorite Podcasts!”
I’ve listened to Writing Excuses with my family around, and someone will almost invariably say what awesome advice the topic is for their field. It’s mighty entertaining as well.
Bering a (wannabe) writer, I may have to check out Grammar Girl….
