If you're looking for high production value entertainment, podcasts won't always deliver. But, when it comes to valuable advice from experienced professionals at no cost to you, they can't be beat.
Here are a few I subscribe to that are kept up-to-date and are packed with family history tips and tricks.
The Genealogy Gems Podcast
Lisa Louise Cooke runs Genealogy Gems and is well known in genealogy circles. As host of this podcast, she delivers advice and interviews with pro genealogists and others in the industry. (iTunes link)

Billing themselves as the "longest-running, regularly produced genealogy podcast in the world," Drew and George provide up-to-date news from the genealogy world and more. (iTunes link)
Genealogy Connection Podcast
Drew from The Genealogy Guys hosts the newest genealogy podcast on the block. Each week, a genealogy professional is featured for an interview that lasts around one hour. When you subscribe to The Genealogy Guys podcast, you automatically receive this one.
The Genealogy Professional Podcast
Marian Pierre-Louis hosts this one, which features an interview with a new genealogy professional each week. She's even interviewed other genealogy podcasters -- mind blown! (iTunes link)
Extreme Genes Family History Radio
Extreme Genes is just that. Fisher is a radio guy like me who decided to marry his two loves and bring genealogy to a radio show/podcast. It features expert interviews and stories you wouldn't believe about people's family history findings. (iTunes link)
Research at the National Archives and Beyond!
Bernice Bennett's weekly podcast promises an "opportunity to listen, learn and take action" each show. Originally produced on BlogTalkRadio there is also listener interaction via the chat room and call in number. One of my new favorites! (iTunes link)
