Over the past three years podcasts have been a big part of my downtime and time at work. Started with a co-worker giving me a copy of podcast about the Jesus and the creation of the universe by Haterazzi (currently unavailable, but I think I have it laying around somewhere if you're interested). That got me searching for more podcasts and I ended up a dedicated listener of The Brilliant Idiots and The Combat Jack Show; the first I've completely stopped listening to, the latter I pick and choose based on the guests. Since then my catalog of podcasts have expanded through all podcast genres, and I like suggesting podcasts to people I think might like certain things, so I decided to put together a list of my current and favorite podcast. Hopefully you find something here that you like.
A lot of these are Australian podcasts.
