Geek Podcasts

I've been listening to a couple of podcasts produced by Dan Benjamin at 5by5.com. Dan produces twenty podcasts covering a wide variety of topics, from web design to photography to Ruby programming to detailed Apple news to daily internet rumor, gossip and news items. All of them have a low-key, no-nonsense tone that will appeal to your inner geek: straight-up talk on subjects you care about.

My favorites, so far: The Talk Show with John Gruber and Dan, where the most recent talk has covered the impending Verizon iPhone, Google's executive split and the early Bond films; Hypercritical with John Siracusa and Dan, where the first three shows covered backup schemes and the forthcoming Mac OS X Lion. Geeky enough for you?
