I always stop by the New Scientist website to check the headlines. You never know when a scientific breakthrough is going to spark a story idea.
I was happy to discover the magazine/website was also producing a podcast. It's one of the best I've run across, slickly produced and always interesting.
Segments are drawn from the pages of New Scientist magazine, and yeah, they'd like you to go ahead and subscribe after listening, but the 'casts stand alone as info bursts about everything from new Alzheimer's discoveries to the sonic weaponry that recently thwarted pirates off the coast of Somalia.
If you're at all interested in science news, this one's worth a listen.
