PC Advisor is looking for your podcast recommendations. Which podcasts do you listen to, and why? Do you look for specialised expertise or general interest? Is it more important for the content or the production to be top-notch? Do you listen to humorous or serious podcasts?

Send us your recommendation and reasons – as usual you can add them to this thread or email them to [email protected] - for your chance to see your name in the magazine, and perhaps even win a great prize!

Thanks for your input - and a big thank you to all the readers who suggested their favourite travel blogs for the August issue.

Seth Haniel is this month's prize winner, after recommending Lonely Planet. "First blog to check for your holiday destination, every time," he wrote – and we're inclined to agree. Congratulations to Seth Haniel, who wins a copy of Magix MP3 Maker 14.0.

click here for the most interesting video podcasts I've come across in a long time. Being a mac and windows user, this particular one was especially interesting...

Fighting talk, Mark Kermode, Start the Week...

My favourite is the Friday night comedy podcast, but that's just a download of the News Quiz, so I'm not sure it counts.

I don't do audio podcasts, but if you're counting video podcasts I do enjoy gnooze . com (the G is silent) click here , a humourous take on the three biggest (US) news stories of the day...

on the way to work, school, or while studying, you can't beat the geoff show podcast. It's not really based on any one thing, its more of random (but usually very funny) chit chat, as it's a radio show but the podcast has the music removed. I'd recommend it to anyone! Can be found at click here

There are loads I listen to. The main ones are the Observer Football Weekly because it is funny, informative and the perfect thing to listen to on the way to work. I also listen to Mark Kermode's film reviews, Windows Weekly and Ricky Gervais.
I have found podcasts on nearly every subject that interests me and most of them are informative, well presented and broadcast regularly.

maybe a bit obvious but podcast.com has a wide selection - there's one called Deadpod that's entirely made up of Grateful Dead music - any Grateful Dead fans on here?
Ricky Gervais is good too and turned a lot of people onto the idea of podcasting.

oh and this royal podcast is a great idea

has various speeches you may have missed if you're not a rabid republican...

But how does one find the time, I seem to be doing something almost all the time.

If you are listening to a Podcast, you are not listening to the current output.

If you're not listening to the current output how will you know what is worth listening to.

Russell Brand BBC Radio 2
Catch up with the latest banter between Russell, Matt and guests, including regular caller Noel Gallagher

usually download it to play in my car on the regular 3 hour trips to Scotland - helps pass the time with some off beat humour

I'm a big fan of NPR 'All Songs Considered': click here
Great range of music and they always seem to find something to play that I wish I had in my collection !

Must look up Deadpod so in answer to Hamburglar - YES !
