80GB is a lot of space. And lets face it, I don't have enough music to fill 80 GB - it's not like I'm not trying... every other week I head to our local library and return home arms loaded with books I have every intention of reading (I will too finish Anna Karenina before I turn 30)and a selection of Cd's. At 45p a pop it's a great way to try new music or as some like to say 'broaden my 80's nostalgia cluttered horizons'. If I hate what I've got out... it's OK. It only cost me about half a quid. Add to this limewire (it is legal right?) and I'm slowly but surely filling every little byte my Ipod has with music.
To aid my mission I recently turned to the services of the Itunes PodDirectory, as many of you know a pretty comprehensive listing of podcasts. So for the last couple of weeks I've been ignoring some of the maestros on my Pod and have turned me ears (and eyes) over to these guys
Books on Guardian Unlimited
Some great author interviews here plus serialisation of Wolf Brother by Michelle Paver (which I am yet to listen to)
Interesting podcasts that look at trends in publishing, features soon to be published Penguin books and interviews with authors and publishers.
The New Yorker
Short stories featured in the New Yorker read aloud by well known authors with an interesting q&a session at the end. But I really love the animated cartoons - some of them are great!
Mark Kermode's film reviews
Just listen to his 20 minute rant against Pirates 3 and you'll know why he's so good.
From our own Correspondent
BBC Radio 4 correspondents from across the world report on the stories that don't make it to the front page news. Always interesting.
Also from BBC Radio 4, Woman's Hour covers everything from breast cancer to Nancy Dell'olio to rows over mums dropping kids off at school in their PJ's.
And here a few new ones I've just subscribed to today. Can not vouch for them as I haven't seen or heard any of them yet, but do check them out
Vodcast from the Tate Modern looking at what else - modern and contemporary art.
