NPR has some good music and environmental podcasts. If you can download some books on tape, I highly recommend that.
Depends on what you're into I suppose, but I've always enjoyed "Vital Signs," a free weekly podcast put on by Discover Magazine. 7-10 minute snippets about interesting and/or difficult medical cases.I agree with sarcozona, though. Most of their programs are available via podcast. You can even make custom podcasts by mixing your favorite programs and music together at http://www.npr.org/rss/podcast/podcast_directory.php. All the good stuff is there- Science Friday, Fresh Air, Wait, Wait-- Don't Tell Me. Check it out! :)
We used to really enjoy listening to editions of "This American Life" from NPR while doing lab work. I dunno if you can download them or only stream them.
I listen to a lot of NPR and PRI podcasts- NPR Environment, Living on Earth, This American Life, and Science Friday. I'll check out Vital Signs- I haven't heard of that one before!
RadioLab!!!!! Also:American Radioworks documentariesThe MothSound Opinions
I listen to Stephanie Miller's podcast. It's a political comedic morning show. Used to also get Rachel Maddow shows as a podcast but not anymore since Air America went belly up. I can send you some Stephcasts so you don't have to subscribe. They are funny but not the most intelligent bunch. Thom Hartman - much smarter and very interesting, but can really get you down.
I second the Moth podcast. I also like Wait Wait Don't Tell Me.Have a safe a productive trip!
Thanks for all of the great new suggestions. I'm definitely checking out The Moth, American Radioworks and Radio Lab. Jon loves Rachel Maddow, and Paulina you can still get her podcast (video or audio) on itunes. Jon also likes Sound Opinions. I've got a ton of podcasts now! This is great.
oc course radiolab...i also like "to the best of our knowledge"and "the new yorker fiction podcast"have a great trip!
