Lately, I’ve listened to very little music at work because I’ve been listening to the many great podcasts produced by 5by5: an Internet broadcasting network put together by Dan Benjamin.

The podcast network has a nice variety of topics, ranging from web design, to tech rumors, to diets — but they’re all relevant to developer/creative types. The production quality is very high, and there’s something new daily.

5by5 features some of the biggest names in tech/design as guests (and hosts!) — my personal favorites are The Talk Show with Dan Benjamin & John Gruber (of Daring Fireball), Founders Talk with DB & a guest who has started something successfully (makes me want to quit my job weekly) and Hypercritical with DB & John Siracusa (great analysis of tech products with an Apple skew).

Visit to subscribe and see when the next scheduled podcasts are. Some are live video… but I subscribe in iTunes and listen daily at work.
