    My iPod is always loaded with a half dozen electronic music podcasts that I listen to without fail. Each week I wait with baited breath for the XLR8R and Beatport podcasts.

    Released less frequently but waited with no less anticipation are podcasts like the Indian Electronica podcast and DJ Bulut's New Turkish Beat podcast.

    Indian Electronica is a Canadian-based online community, record label, radio station and annual international music festival - all focused on showcasing cutting edge electronic music inspired by South Asian traditions. The podcast is an eclectic sampling of electronic music produced around the world. You can also catch their stream 24 hours a day, 7 days a week straight out of Toronto. Previous shows have included mixes by DJ Spooky and Tony Estrada.

    DJ Bulut hosts the equally eclectic New Turkish Beat podcast. Bulut has an exquisite taste for the mixes he puts together and has an extensive show notes at his blog.
