I have recently discovered the magic that is podcasting. I initially went on to find some really cool episodes of NOVA(PBS) and NPR's Science Friday. I am eagerly awaiting the completion of the Large Hadron Collider and have taken a recent interest in understanding String Theory because of some discussions in my philosophy class. So, NOVA and Science Friday have multiple interesting episodes covering these topics, and they make good background noise while I'm drawing. I signed up for several others as well, all for free! I love finding free content, that I don't have to break any laws to enjoy. This is the list of my first round of podcast subscriptions:

He speaks very quickly in a muffled tone and mumbles under his breath before concluding each sentence with a loud "what?" It is some of the oddest behavior I've ever witnessed. A typical part of his lecture might go like this:
