Conversations Lugradio is about to send their latest episode which means the end of my primary source of completely unusable british slang. I'm self employed so I really like the background conversation while programming.

Which tech podcasts would you recommend?

BBC Digital Planet
A broad tech news podcast, usually covering worldwide topics

The Talk Show
John Gruber & Dan Benjamin. Mostly Mac geekery, but extremely well presented and fresh. The kind of people who spend an entire show discussing the best keyboards they've used.

I use Windows, MacOS and Linux daily and I program mostly in C, C++, PHP, Actionscript 3, C#, Javascript, PgSql. I really like electronics (fpga, embedded, etc) and engineering in general.

It's also nice to see where the wind blows. Example: it's obvious that one can only add so many cores until some NUMA partitioning must occur. What progress in the NUMA field for consumer electronics is there?

Well, I'm in asp.net on windows at the moment, so my podcasts lean in that direction, but I'll post em anyways.

.NET
DotNetRocks - Fantastic podcast, one of the best tech casts out there

Hanselminutes - Scott Hanselman is a really bright guy, and tends to have good guests.

Deep Fried Bytes - New podcast, but already had a few really fantastic episodes. Loved the ones on DDD and being a .net developer working on a mac

Windows/IT
RunAs Radio - The only IT cast I listen to, mostly cause I am a fan of Richard Campbell in a general way

Web
Audible AJAX - pretty self explanatory

WebDevRadio - Not my favorite, but not bad

Polymorphic Podcast - ASP.net centric, and tends to go from fantastic to pretty average based on the guest

General Development
Software Engineering Podcast - Just getting into this one, its not bad though

Thoughtworks - IT Matters - Martin Fowler is on the panel, can't really go wrong with that

Stackoverlow - Joel Spolsky and Jeff Atwood chatting about dev stuff. 'nuff said
