podcasts worth listening

Ok, so 'podcasts you love, from people you trust' tagline should have
warned me. 'FLOSS weekly' from same twit network is a bit full of
advertising, but otherwise ok. 'Security Now'... is quite another
thing. They don't seem to know what they are talking about, and use
even more advertising. 'Spin Write' they are pushing all the time seems
suspiciously like snake oil. But it gets worse. 'SameOrigin troubles'
episode, they kind-of defend Adobe for grave security hole. Flash
object with .gif extension and image/gif content type still gets
executed, and can steal your data. Adobe claims that can't be
fixed. Well, I always knew Flash is malware but, ...

Anyway, worst stuff came with 'elephant in the browser'
episode... They are pushing some remote aceess 'solution': "you just
mail the link to executable to them, they click on it, download .exe,
run it and you fix their computer, all completely secure". Hmm, sounds
so. Not.

So there's 'FLOSS weekly' podcast, then 'lkml summary podcast'. I listened to
'all things considered' music podcast, but I can't find it now, or any
other reasonable music podcast for that matter. So... whats worth
