Photography Podcasts

Podcasts on photography are really a great idea – they provide insight and new perspectives. I listen to them when driving to and from work. Here are the best photography podcasts I am currently enjoying. They are easy to find on iTunes, but for those of us who don’t live in the Apple world I have provided feed links that can be used with any podcatcher or feed reader.

All the podcasts listed here are English (unless noted otherwise) audio podcasts (sorry, no video podcasts) available in MP3 format.
