Getty When pop culture is tasked with presenting us characters who speak 17 languages, know way too much about far too many subjects, and/or are insufferably intelligent in general, speed reading tends to be the go-to skill to display their talent.

Basic Podcasting Gear Let’s talk about the basic podcasting gear you’ll need to get started? We’re going to start out with podcasting gear that you probably already own or can get for cheap. To get started you will need a computer with broadband internet access, a mic and headphones. Computer Your first piece of podcasting gear is your computer.

The bike podcast: Sir Chris Hoy launches our new podcast | Environment | Kicking things off in the first episode of the bike podcast, the Guardian's online sports editor Sean Ingle asks Sir Chris Hoy for the best ways to improve fitness on a bike. Sir Chris also reveals a love for mountain biking and explains what the legacy for London 2012 should be. In each podcast we'll be providing reviews of new bikes, and this month, expert (he even has a PhD in cycling) Dr Justin Spinney drops by to review the Fuji Roubaix Pro , the Trek 1.2 , and the Pinnacle Lagerra. The national cycling organisation CTC firmly believes that the UK can double the amount of cyclists on the road in the next 10 years. Multi-coloured, fixed-wheel bikes are growing in popularity in cities around Europe, but what's the point of these stripped down machines? And finally, Susan Greenwood catches a train up to Scotland to take in a mountain biking adventure on the Isle of Skye, very much leaving her comfort zone in the process.
