Good Sports Podcasts Wanted: Thanks to my Christmas-gift iPod and my new nocturnal habits, I've discovered the glories of time shifting. A few weeks ago worldcup2002 posted this link to a podcast featuring Michael Lewis. I'm looking for more. Share your favourite sports podcasts inside.

I'm especially interested in finding podcasts that are, well, hard to find. My offerings: Deck Pass: Swimming news and views, published weekly. Unpolished production. Quiet Please: a single-episode contribution from the BBC. "Chris Mitchell talks to the experts who explain that sound in sport is fundamental to the delivery of excellence, performance and skill."

Here are some good football/soccer podcasts that I listen to on the train every week: Football Weekly: The Guardian's take on all things football. It has an English focus, but features reports on Italian and Spanish football as well. For those of you who enjoy the minute-by-minute reports, this one is for you. Arsecast: This podcast from the bloggie-winning Arseblog is a good summary of all things Arsenal that's just funny enough that fans of most other teams could find a laugh from time to time. ESPN Soccernet Extra: This is a lot more comprehensive as it comes out twice a week (Monday and Thursday), but it doesn't have quite the humor of the other two. It did have decent coverage of the A-League playoffs though. Maybe all the Liverpool fans around these parts can convince kopblog to start producing a podcast.

I was going to suggest Arsecast, but trox beat me to it :)

I'm a fan of MLB Radio Daily. They pull interesting interviews from pregame shows around the league and historic audio.

I'm a big fan of Prime Time Sports with Bob McCown. You may have flipped by it while channel surfing past Sportsnet East, and scoffed at the absurdity of a radio show on television, but it's a damned good show. That televised hour is also available as a daily podcast. Although this week he's on vacation, and his temporary replacement is nothing to write home about, so I wouldn't bother listening 'til next week.

This thread marked as favorite... Not sports related, but Jim Breuer the comedian does podcasts. See here...

Thanks for sharing, everybody. A few more one-offs from How Do You Cheat at NASCAR? The Death of the Bracketmaster Do Mormon athletes wear the temple garment under their uniforms?
