I listen to podcasts while walking to work, and to fill other
"autopilot" times.  On occasion I have even taken stripped the video
portion out of talks and turned them into audio-only, so that I can
listen to them.  I find many videos (screencasts, slide shows) to be a
waste of dedicated sit-down time.  Some are not, but there are a lot
of "talking head" videos out there where the video is a waste of
