#76 - The Workout Podcast

Drawing direct inspiration from CBC Radio 3's Sweatin' To the Indies, I present to you The Workout Podcast - Creative Commons version!  I think I've attempted this before, but this time around the music is a lot better and I did my best to edit the music together so that it flows.  Minimal interruption from the sound of my voice, wall-to-wall music...this podcast should help you when you need some high energy music during your work-out.  The full playlist is below - including download links where possible in case you want to check it out.  Thanks for listening!

#70 - Summer's Here?

Summer seems to have suddenly switched on!  At least, that's the case in Ottawa.  In today's slightly shorter episode, I've picked some "classic" songs and some newer songs, and also was completely unaware of the technical glitches at the start of the podcast.  No solid topics of conversation in the show, just lots of great music.  If you're an App developer, you have until June 9th to submit something to the Jamendo App Contest.

To listen, download from, iTunes, or Stitcher.  Please note I am aware of the technical issues downloading the podcast from iTunes; if you have an iOS device, you should be able to download from the Podcasts app without problem.  Or just get Stitcher - it's pretty great.

  2. .audiosport - The One
  3. I Am Not Lefthanded - Brace Brace
  4. Great White Buffalo - Likely Story
