Do any of you subscribe to, or listen to on a regular basis, podcasts?
I get NPR's All Songs Considered. They magically appear on my iTunes list regularly.
Last night, I listened to its "Best Music of 2006" show.
anything else I should be listening to? jazz or otherwise?

This one is good - illasounds. The equivalent of a themed jazz radio show.

I've only listened to a couple of editions of WNYC's "Soundcheck" program (available by free podcast subscription at www.wnyc.org ), and have enjoyed them. The show covers music as well as music-related subjects, like how the housing market affects where musicians live and work. (That program had an interview with Leonard Bernstein's daughter about growing up in the Dakota when it was more of an artist enclave than a luxury building) They have interesting guests and the host, John Schaeffer, seems pretty intelligent and pleasant. Here's the Website's description of the show:
"Soundcheck, hosted by John Schaefer, is WNYC’s daily talk show about music. Covering all musical genres, Soundcheck celebrates the musical passions of performers, composers, and critics as well as the public radio audience. Listeners enjoy intimate conversations with and live performances by leading artists from around New York and around the globe. The show also strives to bring listeners up to date on the latest music industry news, trends and ideas, and it offers listeners a voice with frequent call-in segments."
