In what I consider a double win, I have quite a few NPR (National Public Radio) podcasts on my iPod at any given time. Not only does this allow me to listen to NPR programming that I might otherwise miss, but it also skews the iPod demographic (I can rarely be found dancing down an urbanscape as an animated shadow with a pair of white earbuds, for instance). I’ve rolled my favorite NPR podcasts into one but this is far from the extend available for free through the NPR website.
