hpr2068 :: Podcasts I listen to and how I fetch them.

As I drive to work, I rattle off a short list of podcasts that I listen to and how I fetch them.

Part of the series: Podcast recommendations

This is an open series where Hacker Public Radio listeners can share and recommend podcasts that they listen to.


Right out of my ~./podget/serverlist:



I can supply my podgetrc upon request. It’s pretty basic.

GPodder was slow in my case because it was indexing all the files in its folder to maintain an internal database. You can set options in the GPodder options to delete files after x number of days. Also you can manually clean up files in the application. That said, never delete the underlying files because it will cause the GPodder database to become desynchronized which causes its own set of problems.

As a Slackware user, I sort of kind of knew of the Church of the Subgenius, praise Bob, but I had not stumbled over their podcast.

All I can say is, how very strange.

Just as an aside, I use podget to get my pods. I used to use podracer until it didn't like me any more.

None of that fancy GUI stuff for me.:)
