David: I’m a big SciFi fan so i like Starship Sofa and Escape Pod. They have great stories and very good editorials. Starship Sofa even won a Hugo this year. Mainly I like to listen on my way to work during the commute which is about 40 minutes. What’s cool is that’s about the length of a lot of podcasts.

I like your Audacity to Podcast because it focuses on mainly on a single subkect rather that trying to cover to many products. I like more in depth types of subjects.

Dave Thackeray: The Zoom H4n. Love it. I could probably go on the road with this dude and need nothing else. Apart from a voice and PC!

Vickie: Kodak Zi8 mini HD camcorder. Amazing quality in the palm of my hand. Skype for video chatting with my 70-year-old parents in Florida.
