Admit it. You're a bona fide weather weanie. You don't just want to know what the forecast for today is. You want to know the story behind the weather. You hate the destruction storms cause to innocent people, but if this were the true confessions list instead of the Blindcasting list, you'd have to admit that you're in awe of the awsome power of Mother Nature and the wrath she can bring. You are one of a handful of people who actually cares about what happens to the National Weather Service, you love hearing the adventures of professional storm chasers, and you lie awake at night pondering the significance of the North Atlantic oscillation changing from negative to positive. Well, here are a few podcast recommendations from a fellow weather nerd, complete with the URL to put into your pod catcher. Enjoy!

Pod Weather (Internet Partnership Radio)
This is by far my favorite podcast for in-depth weather discussions and analysis. It is a collection of podcasts from amateur and professional meteorologists which includes Today In Weather History, Center Of Circulation, Weather Brains, Winter Round Table, Talkin Tropics, Severe Weather Central and many others. They sometimes put some weird stuff at the beginning of the podcasts which you can fast-forward through if necessary. I would recommend going back through some of the previous episodes as well.

WRBN.Net Podcasting
This is the feed of the Barometer Bob Show, a weekly program discussing past severe storms and hurricanes, as well as future weather trends. Again, I would recommend listening to some of the past shows as well.

StormWatch Report, The Weather Channel Podcasts
This is a short podcast which is aimed more at the general public, but it's a good feed to watch for the national severe weather outlook.
