iPod Madness

I finally succumbed to an overwhelmingly irresistible urge to own an iPod. At last count, I have downloaded 179 podcasts which translates into slightly less than a weeks worth of listening and I have only had the little beast for five days! The Heritage Foundation and The American Enterprise Institute have proven to be treasure troves of podcasts on a truly remarkable range of subjects. If you thought I was wonky before – just wait.

Also, be on the lookout for podcast recommendations from yours truly. You can listen to them on your computer if you don’t already own one of these contraptions. As a matter of fact, here are a few from The Heritage Foundation to get you started:

“America Alone: The End of the World as We Know It” – a great speech by Mark Steyn about his most recent book which I just read and heartily recommend.

“A Glorious Disaster: Barry Goldwater’s Presidential Campaign and the Origins of the Conservative Movement”

““24” and America’s Image Fighting Terrorism: Fact, Fiction or Does it Matter?” begins with a brief speech by then Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff,
followed by a panel discussion with some think tank folks, the creators/writers of 24 as well as President Logan, Tony Almeida and Chloe! The panel’s moderator is none other than Rush Limbaugh.

You can get these by subscribing to The Heritage Foundation Event podcasts via iTunes. And, of course, they are free.
