2. Maximumfun.org – A podcast network
Maximum Fun is a giant network of awesome (free) podcasts. Many of them are comedy and culture themed, but all of them rock. Bullseye with Jesse Thorn and Jordan, Jesse Go! are my personal favorites. You won’t regret listening to these.
Bullseye is a public radio show about what’s good in popular culture. With a keen editorial eye, Bullseye sifts the wheat from the chaff, and brings you hot culture picks, in-depth interviews with the most revered and revolutionary creative people and irreverent original comedy.
Bullseye is equal parts funny and fascinating. Whether you’re already plugged in to the culture map, or looking for a signpost, Bullseye will keep you on target.

4. turntable.fm – Play Music Together
Turntable.fm is a great website where you can take turns DJing for an audience of listeners from all over the world. You have access to virtually any song that exists, and people can vote on how good your picks are. Additionally, you can pick a cute animated avatar for yourself that bounces its head. I love turntable.fm because it’s interactive, fun, and a great way to learn new music.
Listening to music has always been one of those experiences that’s better together, whether at a concert or hanging out with friends. But the digital music revolution so far has been defined by a solitary experience. Turntable.fm is bringing the social value of music to the the digital music experience by letting people experience and discover music together — live — online.
