Speeding Up Ira Glass

I listen to podcasts at 2X speed. I'd like to listen to the This American Life archive the same way, but the online player doesn't seem to support it. Is there any way to force the Flash player to do this, or am I stuck at regular speed?

Can you recommend a music podcast that would be good to run to?

I'd like to listen to more music while running. I'm getting a little tired of my comedy podcasts (we must be approaching peak banter). Can you recommend a music podcast that would be good for running? Alternatively, what inputs would give me a Pandora station that would be good for running? I don't want to listen to mainstream country music, but like many other genres. I'd like upbeat music with lyrics.

Podcasting & Podcatching for Android phones

A friend has a radio documentary about climate change that she has made into a series of podcasts that people can access via iTunes, Soundcloud, or direct download of the mp3. She's discovering that podcatching for iPhones via iTunes is simple, but she has some questions about how best to make the podcasts available for Android users. [more inside]

Suggestions For Positive Intellectual Input, Please?

I need to go on a SEVERE media diet, but I crave media that is intellectually stimulating. On TV, I limit myself to culinary and travel shows, a form of "Mind Sorbet," if you will. I also like to think. I want podcasts, downloadable lectures, and websites that promote a positive, and even spiritual (but not religious!) outlook for today and the future. I want resources that are not selling me anything, per se. I'm OK paying for legitimate content! People have to make a living - I get that! I just want to avoid copious "up sell" sales techniques. Can you suggest anything online I might enjoy? [more inside]

How do i get my podcasts to sync?

I just got a new ipod(classic) today, all the music synced fine and most of my podcasts too. However, i have 18 that won't sync and it keeps saying it can't find them even though they're all right there on itunes as i just downloaded them. I made sure everything was up to date, and even restarted itunes but still nothing. If it matters i'm using a mac(2007/08?), with itunes 11.0.3, snow leopard. Is there anyway i can get them to sync?

Where can I get/find Podcasts? And, Podcast suggestions

I love listening to podcasts. I like to think of my ipod as a pocket radio. I just recently discovered a Food Activist/ author Bryant Terry, and his interviews are amazing. But, when i did a search on Itunes, I found barely anything thing there, so I spent a lot of time combing google. I know that there has got to be some site where I can go to find podcasts. Also, there are great things on youtube, I wonder if I could get/rip? those videos to play on my nano somehow when I do not have wifi access. Also can you suggest podcasts for me? [more inside]

Easy French or French-English Podcast recommendations?

I'm learning French, and am looking to increase my exposure to spoken French. Among other things, I've been listening to the Coffee Break French series of podcasts, which has been very helpful, but I'd like to add in some podcasts that aren't specifically about learning French -- podcasts that are by native French speakers and made for a French-speaking audience, but which ideally are fairly accessible or at least roughly comprehensible with some effort to someone who has only a patchy knowledge of the language. French news podcasts might be valuable to me, for instance. Bonus features: podcasts that are also broadcast in English, podcasts that are about scientific topics, and podcasts that are about or are produced in francophone Africa. Recommendations?

Are there any good podcatching apps for the Samsung Galaxy S3?

I listen to a lot of podcasts and my iPod Touch was great for that, but I've recently switched to the Samsung Galaxy S3 and I find their podcasting features extremely inadequate. Some of my problems include how it won't save the spot where I left off if I switch to a different podcast, there's no button that immediately rewinds or fast forwards 15 seconds, but the worst thing is that the two podcatching apps I've tried so far (KiesCast and MyPOD) don't allow me to subscribe to some of the obscure podcasts that are available in iTunes. Does anyone have any experience with a good podcatching app for the Galaxy S3?

DIY Budget Natural & Organic beauty podcasts wanted

Does the podcast equivalent of bella sugar or the beauty section of xo jane exist? I'm looking for lighthearted, fun, podcasts about beauty, makeup, hair, nail polish, etc. Especially for ones with a focus on cheaper budget/diy/drugstore/natural& organic beauty things. I don't mind hearing about some expensive stuff, but if the entire pocast is just shilling really expensive brand name stuff I'm not interested.

Podcast or audiobook app for iphone

Is there a good iPhone app for listening to my own downloaded podcasts/audiobooks that I have as mp3's? I would love an app that I can upload the mp3's to over wifi, and that has tempo control so that I can speed it up a bit. The app should remember the position I am in on each file I listen to, not just the last file.

Interesting, thought-provoking, intellectual podcasts - 2012 version - recommendations? I have seen the past threads on MetaFilter about this very topic, but they are a bit old, and I was wondering if anyone had discovered some great podcasts over the last few years. For me, I love Marc Maron, Answer Me This! is fun, big on Joe Rogan's podcast. But there are some gaps over the course of the work week, and I love to learn and listen to stimulating, thought-provoking conversation.
