I've decided this is a good way for me to remember the podfics I've loved. For bizarrely anal reasons I delete the fics once I've listened to them so this is a good way for me to find them again if I need to. (though seriously, I need to find a good bookmarking site).
If it means you get to find a podifc you haven't listened to then double bonus. And if I can convince you that podfics are the best thing EVER then triple bonus!

If there's anything better than a candle_beck
fic it's listening to her read her own fic. Her voice is PERFECT. It amazes me how well the timbre of her voice matches the feel
of her fic. I CAN'T EVEN! <333
But this fic. Man. It's up there as one of my fav wincest fics ever. It's raw and gorgeous and it even has some hurt!Sam. (finding that in a podfic is rare at the best of times *g*). Do your self a favour. Take a listen!
Podfic: Man's Best Friend

I don't need to mention how well it's read because it's Juice and her reputation precedes her. :D
This story is so DELIGHTFUL! I figure with the gazillionty comments it's received you might already know that. :) If not... go read or listen. Jensen as a cute little dog is too adorable for words. And Jared is totally adorable also.

At times this fic is hard because the boys were so at odds with each other. But it's addictive because you HAVE to know it all works out. I was so engaged when I was listening to this fic. I have to rec it for that alone. :) (the pauses between the chapters takes a little getting used to because they happen in the middle of sentences. But it's worth getting used to).
Podfic: Suburban Cape Cod Blues or You Can Find Anything at Walmart

A sweet J2 story, nicely read by exmanhater
. (ALL her fics are wonderfully read). I liked the way the boys find each other. There's something about Jared being a feminist lit professor (who's totally comfortable about his sexuality) and Jensen being a country singer (who is totally NOT), that I found appealing. :)
Also, if you want to give podfics a go but not sure how to go about it, here's some easy steps. (well, the way I go about it *g*)
1. Have an iPod or mp3 player or other listening device..
2. Search for podfics. This is the best site for doing so: Audiofic
. You can search by fandom, relationship, author, reader etc. There's a link to the fic so you can check it out before you download it. Other places to check out are:amplificathon
(multi-fandom podfic) (Amplification at DW
Also check out pod_aware
. A community designed to increase awareness of podfics.
3. Click the download link.
4. Copy the download onto your listen device. It's usually a click and drag or syncing up your iPod to iTunes.
5. LISTEN! Anytime. Anywhere. \o/
6. Leave feedback. yourlibrarian
lists the top 5 reasons for listening
to podfics. I AGREE!
Feel free to share any you've loved with me. I'm running out! (though I noticed a new J2 posted today so that's on my list. ;D)
