As some of you already know, I don’t watch television, but I do watch an occasional (albeit brief) video podcast.
We also have an HTPC, so content is streamed to our living room (i.e. not at my desk on the computer) Here are a few of the ones that my wife and I watch regularly:
- Attack of the Show (sometimes)
- Game Break
- Ninja Warrior
- MobuzzTV (daily)
- How-to Girl
- TeXtra (sometimes)
- Galacticast (defunct?)
- Democracy Now (the exception to the rulers)
- Butterfly & Beautify (for the kids)
- NOVA Vodcast
- BlackMan N China (now defunct)
I know it sounds like a lot, but all of this combined is probably less than an hour of viewing per week. It beats sitting through hours of TV for a tidbit of content and a ton of commercials. This is a great way to get video news about things I like.
Since I don’t usually watch the podcasts on my computer, I just use Akregator to check them, along with all of the alternative news sites (I don’t read any mainstream press) and blogs that I read daily.
