I’m a big fan of podcasts, and have been listening for a while — the oldest ones in my iTunes library date to the summer of 2005, back when the newly-coined term “podcast” was named word of the year.
People sometimes ask what I listen to, and I’m always open to suggestions of great shows. So here are the current podcasts in my listening rotation. What are yours?

I’d never tried Storify, so wanted to practice on something low-key before trying it on breaking news. So here, curated tweets from CBC Vancouver’s Hot Dog Day. Which many, without irony, call the best day of the year at CBC.
