You will find me in the early hours of most mornings dragging myself kicking and screaming along to the gym. I have an ipod which has a typical gym playlist on to "keep me going" as I puff along on the treadmill, however recently I've taken to listening to design related podcasts - specifically those from Marcus and Paul, at Boagworld.
Paul Boag (has scary eyes)
I can hear people sniggering at me already for not listening to some banging toons to keep me motivated. However I'm finding that listening to these guys chatting about a wide range of issues faced by designers, programmers, and business owners on the web is really distracting me from what I'm actually doing.
It's not specifically a learning podcast, though I have learnt a lot from them - rather I find it more interesting just to hear other opinions and thoughts on topical subjects.
It lasts for around 45 minutes which is also perfect for about the time I might feel like passing out in a crumpled heap on the floor.
So just wanted to plug them for other designers that might be reading this - take them along to the gym, or just have a listen anyway. It's really rather good :)
