Like everyone else, my podcast listening (and publishing) has an inverse relationship to how busy I am at work. I’ve cut back to only the gPod – bookending the day – with music in the middle.
A couple weeks back, I found Potion Factory’s Tangerine, a great little app that generates iTunes playlist based on BPM and beat intensity and a handful of different patterns (think treadmill workout patterns).
I’ve got 5 Tangerine playlists right now – each a couple hours long with a different random selection of music that falls within specified BPM and beat intensity ranges. I’ve found it a great way to shake up my favorite tunes with others that I’ve neglected for too long.
