Now that I’m responsible for search at Boston.com, I need to keep on top of the industry. WebMasterRadio.FM has put together an excellent group of weekly radio shows/podcasts covering the field. These are all “inside baseball,” but they are excellent listening if you’re in the business.
The Daily Searchcast
Danny Sullivan‘s daily podcast, reviewing all the search-engine news. He covers anything and everything having to do with Google, Yahoo, MSN and the rest.
Jeremy Shoemaker‘s radio show about all the different ways to monetize your site, including PPC, affiliates, sponsorships and others means. Targeted to small- and medium-sized sites.
“Jammin’ and Spammin’” with a couple of the leading gray-hat SEO practitioners. Hit or miss, but often entertaining.
First and Fifteen
ESPN’s daily football recap.
ESPN’s daily baseball recap
Smart daily podcast, generally reading one of the stories from the day. A special treat is the Friday Gabfest, a roundtable coming out of Washington.
NYT columnist podcasts
Maureen Dowd, Paul Krugman, David Brooks, Thomas Friedman.
The New York Times Book Review
Surprisingly entertaining weekly wrap-up of the Times Book Review, often including author interviews. Very entertaining.
Beat the Press
This is a weekly podcast of the Channel 2 Greater Boston show. It’s inside baseball for Boston media news, probably not all the interesting for folks not in the business.
Boston Globe’s Page One podcast.
This is our own summary of the Globe’s front page.
New York Times technology columnist David Pogue reads his weekly column.
American Public Media’s Future Tense
A daily public radio story about technology.
Jim Cramer’s Real Money
Podcast of Jim Cramer’s daily radio show. I’m entirely in mutual funds, but this is still highly entertaining radio.
NPR Business Story of the Day
Top business story of the day from NPR.
On Words, with John Ciardi
This is my little hidden pleasure. The late John Ciardi used to do “On Words” segments for NPR, discussing etymology of English words and expressions.
