I love tech podcasts.  Whenever I’m at the gym, in the car, or doing yard work you can bet I’m listening to one of my favorite personalities talk tech.  Here are a couple of should-not-miss podcasts centered around our favorite pastime: technology (insert Napoleon Dynamite song here).  Please leave your own in the comment section.

  1. TWIT (This Week In Tech) is the grandfather of all the tech podcasts.  It is a panel discussion style moderated by Leo Laporte.  You might remember Leo as the host of The Screensavers on Tech TV (aka ZDTV).  You’ll catch regulars like Patrick Norton (also from The Screensavers) and John C. Dvorak giving their commentary on the week’s tech news with some of the most important people in the industry.
  2. Macbreak Weekly is another podcast on the TWIT network that discusses the week’s mac news.  You’ll hear from regulars like Scott Bourne, Merlin Mann, Andy Ihnatko, and Alex Lindsay in another panel discussion moderated by Leo Laporte.
  3. Cranky Geeks is a panel-discussion style video podcast moderated by John C. Dvorak.  I would call this podcast the tech version of Car Talk.  It’s cranky feel makes it both informative and entertaining.
  4. Webb Alert is a daily tech news roundup hosted by Morgan Webb (from X-pay on G4, aka TechTV).  This video podcast will give you the day’s tech news in a headline news style quick bullet point format.

These are a few of my favorites, but the net is not short on great tech podcasts.  If you just can’t get enough stop by Tekzilla, Tech Five, Apple Phone Show, Girls Gone Geek, and Systm.
