    I have it down to about 8 active ones just now, maybe 10 episodes a week? Most podcasts are 30 minutes to 3 hours though, so there's a limit on what's possible.

    I have 20 subscriptions. But, I'm behind on some. I have a son that I take for a walk in a stroller... prime podcast listening time.

    That's true. There's just so much out there it's hard to limit yourself. Sometimes I want to cut back and sometimes I just want to listen to more. I think I just decided that anywhere between 10 and 15 is just enough. Also, a lot of the shows I listen to are once a week shows, or in the case of Filmspotting SVU, every other week.

    Three of the podcasts I listen to are on the Trek.fm network: Earl Grey (TNG), The Orb (DS9), and To the Journey (VOY). That network does have great hosts.
