While receiving little fanfare, many podcasts such as The Adam Carolla Show and Kevin Smith's SModcast attract millions of unique downloads. We'd like to know how many of you listen to podcasts regularly and ask readers to share their favourites.

My favourite podcasts?
- Writing Excuses serves to help writers of speculative fiction (Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Horror, etc) with pithy breakdowns of a specific topic in each 15-minute episode.
- We're Alive: A Story of Survival is a serial drama concerning a zombie outbreak in southern California. Each week or so is a new 15-minute instalment of a band of soldiers and normal citizens trying to cope with the undead and each other.
- Back to Work is a productivity podcast by Merlin Mann and Dan Benjamin that tries to stay on topic unsuccessfully but is nevertheless interesting.
- The Survival Podcast - The title is a little off-putting for many, but host Jack Spirko isn't preaching Mayan doomsday calendars or the government being out to get you. Instead you'll find mostly common sense advice about how to grow some food, store extra for lean times, and be able to make your own decisions.
