New Podcasts since May 2011

The last time I summarized the newly reviewed podcasts was on May 1st. Since then a couple of more podcasts have been reviewed for the first time:

Myoclonic Jerk
The Myoclonic Jerk is a very entertaining podcast that would be best characterized as a piece of investigative journalism with a personal touch and a hint of comedy podcast. The maker Daniel Kaufman takes up a subject to discuss and you can count on being informed, entertained and allowed a peek into his soul.

Robert Jackson shares his thoughts on a range of topics related to mindfulness, awareness, meditation and positive thinking with practical advice from a largely Eastern viewpoint on how anyone, regardless of occupation or location, can better achieve a quiet mind.

I have also made a quick introduction to the 80 something podcasts coming from the New Books Network. Podcasts containing interviews with authors, ordered in as many subjects. I advise to pick one of the many specific feeds, but you can also subscribe to the compound feed. (review)
