I wanted to recognize a number of my podcasting buddies who have recently (or are about to) reach big round-numbered milestones.
800 - No Agenda is my favorite news and media analysis podcast. The show, produced twice per week by broadcast and media veterans John C. Dvorak and Adam Curry, recently released its 800th episode. I discovered the show around episode #10, and have been a huge fan of it ever since.
500 - Mignon Fogarty's excellent Grammar Girl podcast recently crossed the 500-episode threshold. This weekly show runs approximately 10 minutes, and covers writing-related topics such as grammar, spelling, and linguistics.
500 - Dave Elliot's short-form Fantastic Fourcast is approaching episode 500. It's a show that is consistently fun and consistently funny.
400 - One of the first podcast's I ever found, Paeter Frandsen's Spirit Blade Underground just released their 400th episode. He covers geek culture from an evangelical Christian point of view.
300 - My favorite business and stock market podcast, DH Unplugged recently released its 300th episode. Veteran magazine writer John C. Dvorak and money manager Andrew Horowitz do a great job making the complicated world of business and finance understandable.
200 - One of the first long-form comic-book podcasts that I followed from the beginning, From Crisis to Crisis just reached its 200th episode. Michael Bailey and Jeffrey Taylor are almost halfway through with their mission, which is to cover all of Superman's comic book appearances (and his TV appearances, as well) from 1986 to 2006. It is a show that regularly delivers top-notch content.
