Question: Appropriate Podcasts For A Bioinformatician?

Entering edit mode

What podcasts are the bioinformaticians here listening to that tie in with their work?

The most relevant podcast that I know of (the currently even more irregular than normal) Coast to Coast Bio Podcast is still in my list of podcasts.

For programming related topics I still find the StackOverflow podcast an interesting and engaging listen.

Whilst at one point or another I subscribed to both Nature and Science podcasts for general science I no longer do so.

What podcasts might I be missing out on that other people are enjoying related to their work?

We should be back next week and given our absence from the airwaves lots to cover and some interviews lined up

If there's such a concept here as Stack Overflow, this should probably be community wiki; helpful links should be curated and compiled in the question.

Deepak - that is good news, I think you should know the podcast is quite sorely missed between episodes!

Good observation, I turned the question into a community wiki

It's not bioinformatic-specific, but [?]RadioLab[?] is a great science show. I especially like listening on days when I'm frustrated with my work - it helps me remember why I have a passion for science.

Looks interesting Chris, will certainly give that a try!

I like The Changelog. It highlights interesting and useful open source software with a slight ruby slant.

Oooh I need to add that to my list. Always looking for new Ruby-centric podcasts.

I second Changelog. I occasionally listen to FLOSS Weekly and IT Conversations too, for programming. Aside from c2cbio, I can't think of another podcast with a strong bioinformatics focus.

Related, but not bioinformatics, BBC podcasts:

Both have very good presenters, and make for an entertaining listen.

Yep Mpre or Less is great, and I nearly added it into the list above. Statistical podcasts are even thinner on the ground than coding ones I suspect!

I enjoy Futures in Biotech, which is about life science in general but does touch on bioinformatics sometimes.

EDIT 2012-03-06: I have now started to follow Mendelspod, which is almost shockingly good (especially if you are interested in sequencing), with recent shows about companies like DNANexus, nuMedii and Ingenuity.

Thanks Mikael, that's a new one on me - I will give it a whirl

Agreed. FIB can be pretty good. There was a recent episode (poor audio) with David Haussler you could start with.

Seeing as this was the first suggestion for FiB, you get the accepted answer :)

Today, nodalpoint was rebooted as a podcast : http://nodalpoint.org/

That is a great question. I am not aware of any podcast or vodcast(video) that specifically cover bioinformatics topics so far. But there are other services that provide bioinformatics content in a audio-visual form:

http://www.bioscreencast.com/

I should also add that things like the MIT Courseware sites are excellent and similar resources: http://ocw.mit.edu/OcwWeb/web/home/home/index.htm

From the same people as Futures in Biotech: Floss weekly. About free & open software, they had an episode on Bioperl a while ago.

For general science podcasts, I'd recommend Quirks and Quarks from the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation: http://www.cbc.ca/quirks/
