Every Saturday morning I clean the house and listen to podcasts on my iPod. My favourite is Hanselminutes. My second favourite is The Word Nerds, which doesn't help me grow as a developer like Hanselminutes, though it does help grow my already keen sense of grammatical fascism. Hanselminutes is hosted by Carl Franklin and Scott Hanselman, an unflappable web developer and technologist* who blogs and speaks frequently about utilities and tools and ASP.NET and Windows, with much practical advice. I learn a lot about new technologies from his weekly show, without having to read dull dull whitepapers. Scott likes his podcast tag line to be "the show that doesn't waste your time" and to date, it never has. http://www.hanselminutes.com * I don't know what a technologist is either, but it sounds cool.
