One month of podcasts

July 13th, 2009

To get an idea of how much time I take listening to podcasts each month, I kept track of all my podcasts for the month of April.

(Yes, I’ve been sitting on this post for a while).

In order of time:

  • Lyrics undercover: 28 mins, 4 episodes.

  • A Life Well Wasted: 53 mins, 1 episode.

  • Canberra Calling (Crikey): 54 mins, 3 episodes.

  • The Biography Show: 1 hour, 1 episode

  • Penny Arcade: 1 hour 16 mins, 2 episodes.

  • D&D Podcast: 1 hour 22 mins, 2 episodes.

  • Out of the Game: 1 hour 32 mins, 1 episode.

  • Retronauts: 1 hour 51 mins, 1 episode.

  • The Gruen Transfer: 2 hours 19 mins, 5 episodes.

  • Good Grief (1up): 2 hours 47 mins, 3 episodes.

  • Escape Pod: 3 hours, 9 episodes.

  • Car Talk: 3 hours 34 mins, 4 episodes.

  • gdgt weekly: 4 hours 8 mins, 5 episodes.

  • Geekbox: 5 hours 17 mins, 4 episodes.

  • Coverville: 6 hours 27 mins, 9 episodes.

  • Joystiq: 7 hours 18 mins, 4 episodes.

  • Listen Up (1up): 9 hours 16 mins, 4 episodes.

  • Rebel FM/Game Club: 9 hours 41 mins, 6 episodes.

Total time of podcasts: 63 hours 9 mins.

Two special cases, which I normally only listen to about 5 minutes of each (for the headlines):

  • WSJ Wekend Edition: 2 hours 56 mins, 4 episodes.

  • Morning Read from the WSJ: 16 hours 47 mins, 22 episodes.

And finally, even after that there was a little time left over for listening to audiobooks, which I listened to about 2 hours 45 mins of in the month.

Yeah, i listen to a lot of podcasts. Between the gym and commuting I get about 2 hours a day of time which I have my iPhone playing something.
