If you only explore one podcast series which I recommend this year, Pop!Tech should be that one podcast. For the last few years, Pop!Tech has been one of my favorite sources for leading edge material. Briefly stated, Pop!Tech is a thought leaders conference held annually each October in Camden, Maine. I would love to attend, but the high cost doesn't fit my budget. Last year's conference just became available via podcast.
This morning, while driving into work, I listened to Chris Anderson (Editor: Wired Magazine) speak to the topic: What Happens When Everything Becomes Free? Last night I watched Thomas Friedman explain why today's energy crisis is "not your parent's energy crunch". Note how I said "listen" and "watch". These talks are available without charge via podcast or streaming video. Finally, make certain you take in all the sessions. Don't only attend the topics which correspond to your own social views and morals. This is the perfect series to expand your mind and viewpoint.
