BEST PODCASTS from December 2008

Obama's podcasts reign supreme in the Government category

A peek 'behind the curtain'

It's ironic: Although I have written some realllly cool HubPages articles on the history of rock & alt rock music (here), another fun one tracing disco & dance music (here), still another on country, jazz and hiphop all in one article (here), and a video-packed article on "How Harmony Helps Hits Happen" (here), my most popular articles are NOT any of those, noooo.

Instead, I'm shocked to see that you, the HubPages reader, enjoy it MOST when I list the month's top podcasts, like I did last May (here), June (here), July (here) and October (here).

Fine. Have it your way.

Bowing to HubPages Peer Pressure and back by popular demand, here's the very latest results: The December 2008 list of the #1 podcasts in each of Apple's iTunes sixteen podcast categories, plus some fun related videos. Enjoy.
