Are podcasts overrated? Not to me.

I've been hearing that podcasts are overrated and just a fad. I don't think so. Maybe because I've just discovered them a few months ago, but I think they're here to stay. I listen to podcasts in the car, at home while doing household work, and while at the gym exercising (whenever I get around to going to the gym...). I used to listen to the radio at those times, but the programs that I like are not always on when I have time to listen to them. So, podcasts to the rescue. I probably listen to about 8 hours a week as follows:
- KFI Tech Guy - 4 hours
- Ebert and Ropert - 20 min.
- Security Now! - 1 hour
- NPR Technology - 30 min
- Chinesepod.com - Learn Mandarin Chinese - 20 min.
- Misc other stuff - 1 hour.
I'm not ashamed to say that "I love podcasts". :-)
