My father just visited and wondered where I got the podcasts I listened to in the car. I explained that I use DoggCatcher, an app on Android to download them directly from RSS feeds, but that with his iPhone, he should be able to get most of them via iTunes.
Below are a list of my favorite podcasts. I am posting them in the order that Doggcatcher lists them. I generally get in the car, tap the top one, NPR news and then continue to listen. This generally is like my own private radio station, with pause. I pick up on the story I was listening to where I left it.

There are many more on my list but I rarely make it to them in a week. With the change in driving that I have recently had - I doubt I will make it this far down the list on a regular basis.
