Hi Simon,

The TWIT network has some other good shows like This Week in Law, FLOSS
Weekly and Futures in Biotech. I also like "Linux Outlaws", "The
Software Freedom Law Show", the "Scientific American Podcast", the
University of Bath's "Public Lecture Podcast" and "Cyberspeak" computer
forensics and cyber crime podcast.

If you're interested in computer security then there's also the
"Crypto-gram Security Podcast" which is Bruce Schneier's blog read aloud
by a helpful fan. Also security related (in a pen testing direction)
are  Security Justice and Exotic Liability. Both of those, but the later
in particular, are most definitely not family friendly. In fact the host
of Exotic Liability is obnoxious, sexist and immature in the extreme - I
only tolerate it for the info and occasional insight.

I'm always on the lookout for more good tech podcasts so keep 'em coming
everyone :)
