This week I be mainly listening to:

Music… schmoozic!

When I’m programming and need some musical background sounds, I tend to prefer acoustic tinkering, mellow electronica or even a dose of classical from time to time. I simply reach for Pandora and let it do its magic.

But when its a voice I want to hear either muttering in the background or actively engaging my forebrain I reach for my podcast list (during last years Transamerica drive I listened to 30+ hours of downloaded radio shows from the UK. I can honestly say, it made the journey more enjoyable and had me laughing out loud on a number of occasions with my traveling companion, Bailey the super dog, looking at me quizzically).

This blog and link of my regularly exported OPML file is really just for me. To give me somewhere to store my OPML file – what is this? It’s a kind of data file storing all my podcast subscriptions. It can be imported, and exported from Juice so I can always just download this copy onto any new device and run a synch to get lots of listening material.

If you’re wondering what I’m listening to this week:

  • BBC News
  • Vintage comedy from the 80’s
  • English Talk radio from Iain Lee
  • Car Talk from NPR (most amusing!)
  • The Atheist Experience (open your mind and listen!)
  • and some others

How can I download these podcasts?

It’s attached and if you feel like grabbing some podcasts that you might normally never listen to just

  1. Download and Install Juice
  2. Download my OPML file and put it somewhere like the ‘My Received Podcasts’ folder.
  3. Import it and enjoy
Juice using opml file

When it’s imported you will see a big list of radio shows so just click SYNC and what a heap of MP3’s download.


PS: If you’re worried about downloading an OPML file then don’t be. It’s simply an XML file with a lot of locations in it. OPML looks like this and it harmless:
